Why Should the Fire Die? It won't. Not when acoustic music-making and sonics are this superior. Nickel Creek's first album without mentor Alison Krauss in the producer's chair finds the trio's genre-expanding acoustic music shifting even farther away from its bluegrass origins, and taking rustic folk into unchartered waters. The degree of virtuosic performance, compelling songwriting, and stellar production values here stands as a blueprint for all other contemporary rustic artists. 

The opening "When in Rome" perfectly encapsulates the aggressive approach the band favors, and features poetic lyrics far more obtuse than those of most groups with similar roots. The album's first half stays rooted in a fairly conventional folk mode, with a lovely cover of Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow Is a Long Time" (one of the few solo vocal turns from fiddler Sara Watkins) and "Jealous of the Moon" (co-written with the Jayhawks' Gary Louris).

The production values are exceptionally high, reflecting the intense musicality and care embraced by the band throughout its too-brief career. The instrumental envelope, acoustic properties, rich body, and vocal presence on this pressing need to be experienced by every fan of acoustic music, Americana, and folk. These newly remastered Nickel Creek LP pressings blow the great-sounding SACD counterparts away.

Order your deluxe analog copy, as well as the band's subsequent releases, This Side and Nickel Creek, from Music Direct today! You won't regret it.
