On the band’s fifth release, Chatham County Line benefits from taking some musical risks, including adding drums and piano to its bluegrass/acoustic repertoire. The drums remain steady yet unobtrusive throughout the album, enhancing the band’s signature groove, thanks to producer Zeke Hutchins. The mandolin line on “Alone in New York” subtly twinkles here, much like the famed city’s lights, while the charming “Saturdays and Sundays” is enhanced by elegant stringwork. The pleading “Crop Comes In” is an instant sing-along track, complemented by a surprise harmonica intro. “Heart Attack” is one of the finest cuts on the album, layering breakneck instrumental runs beneath easygoing vocals. “Honeymoon” shimmers with its winsome lyrics and “Ringing in My Ears” makes a joyous ruckus, as does album closer “End of the Line.”
