We gave it a B+

Larry Rice, Tony Rice, Chris Hillman, and Herb Pedersen have serious bluegrass pedigrees, having served with the likes of the Byrds, the Desert Rose Band, and J.D. Crowe & the New South. But instead of showing off their hot licks they opt for tight vocal harmonies and canny song choices like a country waltz version of Aretha’s ”Do Right Woman” and a breathtaking pass at Richard Thompson’s ”Dimming of the Day.” They never cut loose, but on Out of the Woodwork, they prove they have soul to burn.
