After a nearly six-year foray into Gospel bluegrass, with THE HARD GAME OF LOVE Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver come roaring back with one the best secular albums of their career. There are few bluegrass bands tighter than Quicksilver, and the ferocious chops-busting arrangement of the great Nashville songwriter John D. Loudermilk's "Blue Train (Of The Heartbreak Line)" that opens the album should send aspiring musicians running back to the practice room. Other highlights include Bill Anderson's "We Missed You," a melancholy ballad that showcases Lawson's way with the classic high lonesome sound, and Quicksilver guitarist Jamie Dailey's "Poor Boy Working Blues," which could easily pass for a '50s Bill Monroe standard. There aren't many groups that still play stone cold traditional bluegrass with the conviction, lack of pretense, and effortless, subtle virtuosity displayed by Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. For this reason alone, THE HARD GAME OF LOVE is a treasure.
