All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Adventurous bluegrass fans who fell in love with the New Acoustic sound of Tony Rice and David Grisman back in the '70s and '80s will thrill to this album by the Matt Flinner Trio, which features mandolinist Flinner, guitarist Ross Martin, and bassist Eric Thorin playing original compositions in a style similar to that favored by the David Grisman Quintet and the Tony Rice Unit back in the day: complex, meandering chord progressions combined with fiery bluegrass tempos and rhythms.
