    The instrumental work is impressive throughout, but Gidden's vocals are the main attraction. [Apr 2012, p.88]

    Far from coming off as a dry and didactic exercise in replicating an ancient style of playing, Carolina Chocolate Drops has instead reinvigorated old-time music for 21st-century ears.

    Carolina Chocolate Drops are a gloriously energetic and adventurous live band, but this set mysteriously fails to demonstrate their range.

    It has a winning blend of respect, technique and humour.
  5. Feb 27, 2012
    The result is an album full of gateway music, lovingly made knockoffs that point to the purer and smarter bluegrass it's imitating.

    There's no faulting the brilliant playing, but by restricting themselves to exploring a fairly unevolved musical form they forever repeat its limitations. [April 2012, p.90]
