All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Since their debut in the mid-'80s, the Lonesome River Band has spent time both in the middle of the bluegrass road and along its margins, experimenting with newer, more progressive sounds while periodically returning to their traditional bluegrass roots. Talkin' to Myself finds them in the latter mode, running through a program of bluegrass standards "Are You Afraid to Call Me Darlin'," the Stanley Brothers' classic "Dog Gone Shame" and tradition-minded originals and covers bassist Ronnie Bowman's "Talkin' to Myself," Bill Castle's "Swing That Hammer".

This lineup may be the strongest vocal ensemble the group has had yet: Mandolinist Don Rigsby is one of the best tenors in bluegrass right now, and Bowman is just as good singing lead. Dan Tyminski's production offers just the right balance of slickness and grit. This is one of those rare bluegrass albums that is likely to appeal equally to fans of the traditional and progressive schools.

    GREAT CD!!

    The Lonesome River Band's newest CD ''Talkin to Myself'' is a keeper!! It has solid hard-driving bluegrass from the beginning to the end!! They really know how to mix the contemporary sounds along with the tradional sounds. LRB really puts their heart and soul into this one.
