 Yonder Mountain String Band - Yonder Mountain String Band (Album Review)
Those looking for a clue as to the direction that Yonder Mountain String Band has taken with its new, self-titled effort need look no further than the label on which it was released.

There’s no question that beneath the surface of its material, Yonder Mountain String Band’s bluegrass heart still beats with a vengeance, but while its rebirth as a pop-oriented outfit isn’t always successful, its growth and maturity are readily apparent.
