    Punch Brothers' third album as a group, Who's Feeling Young Now?, sees Thile and company continuing their evolution into a more egalitarian enterprise, sounding less like a hot-shit mandolin player with a crack backing ensemble and more like a band--and something like a rock band, at that.

    They may have just crafted a masterpiece.

    Who's Feeling Young Now? strikes a perfect balance between flash and form, running blistered fingers on otherwise scholarly templates.

    First of all, it is important to note that this is NOT a straight-up bluegrass album. This is easily one of my favorite albums, period. I can listen to it any time. The title track, Who's Feeling Young Now, gives off the intensity and energy of a punk-rock ballad. And the arpeggios used in Don't Get Married blow my mind. If you have a chance to see this talented group live, you will not be disappointed. Full Review »

    Not as good as 'Antifogmatic' but still very lovely. They have a completely authentic style, which makes it all flow nicely. Every new chord explored every track that goes, 'Who's Feeling Young Now?' shown increasingly solid. Full Review »

    Without a doubt Punch Brothers have the skills which many instrumentalist musicians might envy. Their bluegrass performance is high-flying one, but on the latest - third album "Who's Feeling Young Now?", guys sometimes ovedid with its intensity, just like with the vocals - and that's why songs sometimes seem chaotic. In any case this is not a bad album - just to mention bluegrass essence in the "Movement and Location", quiet folk ballad "Soon Or Never", or a great - totally instrumental country song: "Flippen". For the hesitant is worth mentioning that on the album there is absolutely brilliant cover of "Kid A" by Radiohead. Full Review »
