At my friend's urging, I borrowed an AJ Roach CD from my brother. I was very impressed. I've become a fan of authentic bluegrass/folk music, through my brother's influence, and I like AJ Roach almost as well as Nickel Creek.
The best songs were the faster ones, I thought; the upbeat ones. Dimes was a little bit sinister (but it was also one of my favorites.) Granddaddy, the first song on the album, was a really great song about legacy and family heritage.
AJ Roach also has a way with words. Some of the songs had very poetic lines in them....and that impressed me.
I'm looking forward to hearing his other CD, Revelation.
If you're a fan of folk music, you should try Dogwood Winter.
