    Figuring out what it is...

    Nickel Creek is back, and perhaps we wish they would have figured out their own particular style by now. Maybe they have and there is no word for it yet. This album is a patchwork similar to the album preceding it. Lots of choices, and if you're good with the remote, you can program out the stuff that's really annoying to you. There are some good new sounds here - but the ones that soar are the ones with the harmonies, and there are just too few of these. Perhaps that's the point Nickel Creek is making - we'll do it our way. "All they get of you is what they get out of the show. The rest is mine I guess the beauty and the mess to hide." (Beauty & the Mess, Track 10). If you like the jazzy-grass-folk-fusion instrumental pieces, my suggestions below may be places to continue on your quest. There is a tradition preceding (or paralleling) this aspect of Nickel Creek. Even Chris Thile's own effort, "Not All Who Wander Are Lost" (2001) is pretty solid. Buy that one first.
