Veteran bluegrass titans Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver follow up 2004 gospel set "Thank God" with a secular collection of standards, originals and instrumentals that again showcases this great group's stuff. It's all about soaring harmonies and breakneck virtuosity here. Propelled by Lawson's keening tenor and top-shelf mandolin work, Quicksilver boasts original member Terry Baucom on banjo, along with guitarist Jamie Dailey, bassist Barry Scott and fiddler Jesse Stockman. The versatile band shifts effortlessly from the hard-charging "Heartbreak Number Nine" to the country waltz "Four Walls," then into rousing instrumental "Rosine" (named for Bill Monroe's hometown). The plucky title cut features a killer Lawson vocal and mandolin; other highlights include the impressively arranged "Love Me As You'd Love the Rain" and the tender, sad "Saving Grace," the latter featuring a gorgeous Glen Duncan fiddle turn.—RW
