Grammy award winning Nickel Creek has done it again with a stellar 14 track gem called Why Should the Fire Die?. As usual, the musicianship is excellent; would-be guitarists and mandolinists will be rewinding and pausing Sean and Chris’ licks for weeks. The musicality and sheer brilliance of the trio’s work always leaves me surprised and refreshed. Buy this record now! and call your radio station and CMT to make sure they are playing it. For the lucky few ( oh how I wish i was one of them ) they are playing a limited series of shows across the country where they perform the album in its entirety, track 1 to track 14. wow.
