Review: Chatham County Line – Wildwood

Chatham County Line: Wildwood (Yep Roc, 2010)

If I had to choose the best song of the last decade, my choice might be The Carolinian from the previous Chatham County Line album IV. That song might be the only reason that makes this new Chatham County Line album Wildwood feel like a minor disappointment even though it’s actually another very fine release. It’s just that you had hoped that there might be something that could match the brilliance of The Carolinian. Well there isn’t, so get over it man and learn to appreciate this beautiful album from one of the finest bluegrass and americana groups out there right now. Wildwood might actually be even better album as a whole than IV, because I thought IV had a couple of weaker tunes as well (or maybe not weaker, more like the high tempo bluegrass numbers weren’t actually just my cup of ice tea), while Wildwood gives you a steady flow of high quality country music and everything sounds extremely beautiful.
