Nickel Creek Why Should The Fire Die? 150g 2LP
Remastered Deluxe 150 Gram 2LP from the Grammy-winning Progressive Acoustic Virtuosos! First Time Ever On Vinyl!
Why Should the Fire Die? is Nickel Creek's first album without Alison Krauss in
the producer's chair, and on it, the trio's genre-expanding acoustic music has
shifted even farther away from its bluegrass origins. The opening 'When in Rome'
perfectly encapsulates the aggressive approach the band favors, and features
poetic lyrics far more obtuse than those of most groups with similar roots.
The album's first half stays rooted in a fairly conventional folk mode, with a
lovely cover of Bob Dylan's 'Tomorrow Is a Long Time' (one of the few solo vocal
turns from fiddler Sara Watkins) and 'Jealous of the Moon' (co-written with the
Jayhawks' Gary Louris).
"...Boasting instrumental chops and three-part harmonies worthy of a
mountain-soul string band..." - Entertainment Weekly
