More Behind the Picture Than the Wall

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Ostensibly a collection of secular tunes, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver's remarkable More Behind the Picture than the Wall is also a deeply spiritual album. That's because so many of the forlorn characters therein, such as the father who's trying to make amends for a lifetime of strict discipline in the "The Phone Call" and the heartbroken husband finally realizing how far away he's driven the woman he loves in "Whatever Happened to Us," are clearly in need of help that can only come by divine Providence. This quintet knows how to make its point, too. Lawson and Jamie Dailey form a dynamic one-two vocal punch, both singers working that low tenor/high baritone junction ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Ostensibly a collection of secular tunes, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver's remarkable More Behind the Picture than the Wall is also a deeply spiritual album. That's because so many of the forlorn characters therein, such as the father who's trying to make amends for a lifetime of strict discipline in the "The Phone Call" and the heartbroken husband finally realizing how far away he's driven the woman he loves in "Whatever Happened to Us," are clearly in need of help that can only come by divine Providence. This quintet knows how to make its point, too. Lawson and Jamie Dailey form a dynamic one-two vocal punch, both singers working that low tenor/high baritone junction for all it's worth; in turn, they are supported by a formidable instrumental lineup. Lawson gives everyone a chance to shine on his high-flying workout "Tulsa Turn-Around," kicking things off with a speed-picked mandolin solo that yields to a rambunctious flurry of banjo interjections courtesy Terry Baucom, who's followed by Mike Hartgrove's breathtaking, stratospheric fiddle sortie, setting up a jaw-dropping Lawson sprint down the mandolin neck. The album closes with "Can You Hear Me Now," from Tom T. and Dixie Hall. Rife with Carter Family fatalism and rustic ambiance, the song depicts a woman's deceased lover speaking from the beyond, chiding his partner for taking up with the ne'er-do-well who dumps her as she did him -- dying, in this case, is the best revenge. True to its title, this DL&Q effort can be admired for its execution, but dig deeper and a timeless message emerges.
