Overview

If Ricky Skaggs' latter-day albums lack the surprise and excitement of his early records, his sheer skill and musicianship nevertheless ensure that the albums are rarely boring.

It may suffer from some ill-chosen material, and it may be a little spotty, yet Life Is a Journey remains another solid addition to Skaggs' catalog.
