    This album is pure, 10-bandaided-finger combustibility--the notes need room to breathe, like a freshly uncorked keg of moonshine, each pluck of each string hitching a ride on the cool, Allegheny mountain breeze.

    Whether it was the influence of Steve Martin's style, or the chance to escape from it, with Nobody Knows You, the Steep Canyon Rangers have given their listeners yet another reason to keep listening.

    Unfortunately, while the quintet's musicianship and harmonies are impeccable, its downfall remains subject matter, relying too heavily on heart songs in a manner lacking originality.
