All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
As Bill C. Malone points out in the liner notes, there's a certain old-fashioned quality to Lost & Found that never seems self-conscious or premeditated. In other words, the group never seems to be purposely trying to counter progressive bluegrass. Instead, It's About Time includes the same kind of music that the band might play at a local festival or on the back porch. Guitarist Barry Berrier, bassist Allen Mills, mandolinist Dempsey Young, and banjoist Ronald Smith form a small but nicely matched unit. Indeed, Lost & Found's small size works to the group's advantage, guaranteeing plenty of space for a spare, clean sound. The band also avoids fancy soloing ...

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
As Bill C. Malone points out in the liner notes, there's a certain old-fashioned quality to Lost & Found that never seems self-conscious or premeditated. In other words, the group never seems to be purposely trying to counter progressive bluegrass. Instead, It's About Time includes the same kind of music that the band might play at a local festival or on the back porch. Guitarist Barry Berrier, bassist Allen Mills, mandolinist Dempsey Young, and banjoist Ronald Smith form a small but nicely matched unit. Indeed, Lost & Found's small size works to the group's advantage, guaranteeing plenty of space for a spare, clean sound. The band also avoids fancy soloing and breakneck pacing. Pieces like "Teardrops in My Eyes" and "The Hurt's All Gone" roll along like a lazy afternoon, while old classics like "Down the Road" and "Wreck of the Old '97" receive respectful treatments. Mills sings most of the lead vocals and, interestingly, often adds a bass vocal to match his lead. Berrier also sings a number of fine leads, including the fun ghost song "Cold, Icy Fingers." While Lost & Found may have had no conscious intention of making a traditional bluegrass album, the results are the same. Fans, traditionalists, and anyone who longs for the simpler things of yesteryear will enjoy It's About Time.

    Cheery bouyant bluegrass sound

    As a band, Allen Mills and Dempsey Young now have three decades under their belts with the Lost and Found. Mills once said, "At the time we started this band, all of us were lost in other bands, but we found each other through a mutual love for bluegrass music." Lost and Found's signature sound is one characterized by a line in the Rick May song, "Johnston's Grocery Store." The banjos ring, the mandolins bark, the people tap their toes, and the bass kept time to the guitar strum. In a sense, their music is friendly and comfortable, and it just seems to fit like a pair of well-traveled shoes. Besides playing bass, Mills sings lead on eight of the twelve tracks. Mills is equally comfortable with classic country songs like "Wreck of the Old 97," "Log Cabin in the Lane", and "Down the Road", as he is with newer material like "Johnston's Grocery Store," "Just About Then," and "Travelin' Down A Gravel Road." None of them are at breakneck speed. The songs are simply performed with a happy-go-lucky lilt that lays down nicely in a cozy bluegrass groove. And, here in August, 2003 "Johnson's Grocery Store" (written by Rick May) sits at the #1 spot on the Bluegrass Unlimited National Bluegrass Survey...eight months on the chart! Guitarist Scottie Sparks handles lead vocals on "Fourteen Carat Mind" and "Window Up Above." On two other cuts (Teardrops in my Eyes; Cold, Icy Fingers), the guitar and lead vocal duties are handled, in fine classic country "barry-tone" style, by Barry Berrier. Guitarist Junior Sisk appears on three cuts. The interplay of banjo and mandolin (played by Ronald Smith and Dempsey Young, respectively) is another key element of the Lost and Found distinctive presentation. Despite the lack of hot guitar leads, dobro and fiddle, I've always enjoyed the sheer buoyancy of the Lost and Found's cheery sound. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)
