This stuff sounds really good. The musicianship is as good as any out there. It isn't in-your-face-look-at-how-many-notes-I-can-play, which is a plus. I especially like the way that The Ladder starts out with this bluegrass mandolin and then comes this seamless blend with electric instruments. The guitar work in Elizabeth is really tasty. Production quality is pretty good, too. I have to say, though, that the vocals are an acquired taste.
