All Music Guide - Thom Jurek

They include "The Lighthouse's Tale," "Jealous of the Moon," "When in Rome," the title cut, of course, and their fantastic reading of Carrie Newcomer's "I Should Have Known Better." In addition, there are two live cuts -- including Keith Whitley's "You Don't Have to Move That Mountain" and a steaming take of their own breakdown workout "The Fox" -- and a DVD that includes all seven of the trio's videos.

Those who already have the albums will be gratified for the record of the videos, and the live tracks are nothing to sneeze at. Perhaps there should have been a "best of" done live, but for now, this is it.

    Young Prodigies

    Whether Nickel Creek will ever unite again seems to be an open question. What we do know is that, along with Alison Krauss and the O Brother soundtrack, they turned many people on to bluegrass.You could argue that they were more new acoustic than bluegrass and that is true. It is also certain that, whatever this music is, it will stand the test of time. If nothing else, Nickel Creek will be remembered as a sort of Buffalo Springfield for these fine young musicians.
