AllMusic Review by

Crucial Smith's second album is a good collection of mostly original tunes that serve as springboards for quick-fingered bluegrass runs on guitar, mandolin, and banjo. All four band members sing, and they trade off vocals, each of them sporting a smooth, appealing tenor supported by similar harmonies. A cover of the Beatles' "Please Please Me" turns out to be a welcome addition to the bluegrass repertoire, and it fits in well among the group's more traditional-sounding fare.
