While I love CRB's volume of output...man, the songwriting just isn't there for me anymore.

New Cannonball Rag is a lot of fun--great album opener. Shadow Cosmos has some pretty goofy lyrics ('Loser is as loser does/ There's no winnin' WITHOUT LOVE') that manage to malign an otherwise good song; Roan County Banjo is a live favorite of mine, but it sounds pretty limp in the studio. From the North Garden is a trippy instrumental sequel of sorts to Aimless Peacock--I can dig it; but Sweet Sweet Lullaby had so much potential...again, it loses to Chris' lyrical goofiness.

There's no editor in the CRB. No one is saying, 'Hey, this could be better if we...' Instead, it all feels like a first pass. I listened to the first two sides of Big Moon Ritual the other day, and I was reminded of how much energy these guys used to have.

Agree. They shouldve named this one "If You Lived Here, You'd Be Asleep By Now"

He could have named it Ballad In Inurgency...

PEACE
