    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. Expand

    The musical leaps Punch Brothers takes are invigorating, sometimes breathtaking.

    An astonishing, envelope-pushing vision that mocks the idea of bluegrass being a revival genre. [Apr 2012, p.94]
