  • Great album BUT

    By BrendanVincent
    I love what this group is doing. What really gets me down about this album - enough for me to stop listening to it - is his daughter's consistent whining in the background being passed off as creative backup vocals. It's just too much.
  • Public Enemy Introduced these guys to me

    By rsjonesco
    I have to say I had never heard of these guys until the movie "Public Enemy" came out a few years. The are really good and it is nice see that the banjo has not disappeared into history.
  • Ringtone

  • Not your grandpap's banjo

    By Mountain Mater
    I make old time banjos and am one of the woefully stereotyped white Applachians mentioned in the above review. A friend sent me this CD and truthfully I was prepared to listen to it one time and add it to the shelf. NOT! It is so refreshing to hear the banjo so masterfully incorperated into the rock/blues genre. Tradition is great but I also applaud and enjoy creativity!
  • Awesome!!!!!!

    By Kentucky Proud
    Just an amazing album, featuring banjos in a blues NOT bluegrass venue! Did I mention I love it.
  • Refined & Raw @ The Same Tyme

    Seein the J. Depp movie, Public Enemies, and hearing an unknown tune, "Ten Million Slaves", I had to hunt the song and artist down. The way the song was edited in the movie, I thought it was just a song part of the original score. Thank god I was wrong. I'm now a big fan of Taylor's. On another note, upon hearing the newest Neil Young album, Lé Noise, I noticed a song from that album, "Someone's Gonna Rescue You", is eerily similar to Ten Million Slaves.
  • Nasty letter?

    The only thing missing was nasty letter.
  • Banjo is Great

    By Beth350
    This is a delightful collection of music featuring the banjo. It is upbeat, lively and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I would definitely recommend it to fans of blues, blue grass and folk genres.

    The only negative with iTunes is that the original CD is recorded in HDCD and sounds better on a player with that than does MP3.
