Chris/Darwin Nickel Creek (26) RE: Nickel Creek 18 Oct 02

I have played their first "mature" album, the self titled one, to death on our local community station in Darwin. It became one of my desert island 10 albums almost instantly.

The album is probably best described as pop influenced bluegrass/folk. It is very smooth, with everything done very professionally. More importantly, it is an album that focusses on the music, which varies from brilliantly composed and performed tunes, to a wide range of song types featuring flawless harmonies and musical arrangements. At its best it is goosebump stuff. There is not a poor track on it.

After such a brilliant start, the next album was doomed to be self aware, but some songs on it may yet pass the test of time. It is fair to say that most fans were disappointed.

I think the thing to keep in mind is that these are still kids, and with this much raw talent they could easily mature into the one of the greatest bluegrass bands of all time. I hope they do.
