AllMusic Review by

Although it's hard to know exactly why one would recommend this uniformly excellent release over most of the others in their catalog, not to mention the majority of the likeminded rank and file of the genre, there is no denying that the Lonesome River Band play to the status quo of the bluegrass elite exceptionally well. As always, their picking and harmonies are found to be in tremendous form, even with the lineup changes that continue to reshuffle the band's lineup. Continuing its return to the foundational tenets of the music, with driving rhythms and themes of home, love, and God provided in abundance, the band clearly ranks among the absolute best in the genre, whether plowing through a high-energy rendition of the Delmore Brothers' "Honey I'm Ramblin' Away" or finding an easygoing, more contemporary feel with the plaintive "Missed It By a Mile." All in all, you're unlikely to hear anything here that isn't exactly what you'd expect from these guys, and for most of their fans, that should be more than enough
