I received my copy today, too. I haven't had a chance to listen to more than than first two tracks on the Axioms, but I really liked what I heard.

I'm glad to hear you guys have liked it. After initially listening to the entire album a couple of times on the Axioms, I'm hooked. I can't get many of the tunes out of my head. I love the driving, upbeat rythms and great melodies. Amazing that 95% of what you are hearing is just the 2 of them on Accoustic guitar (no drums, no bass)- and it is recorded in live takes. I think I heard the only song that has an overdub is Orion.

I listened to the CD on my way in to work this morning. It was a long 7 miles on an icy road, but the music kept me grooving.

I always like getting good recommendations for music of a genre that I have yet to venture into. I bought this CD/DVD yesterday and love it! Thanks for the recommendation Dave!

I'm pretty sure none of us has experienced this genre before since they pretty much defined it.

Now I've added it to my reminders/wishlist also.

I just couldn't take the peer pressure!

Freaking Amazing. I had my head 4 inches from the computer screen trying to watch the gals hand movements and figure out what the hell she was doing and how she did it all at once.

I'll be shopping for this CD.

This CD is audio crack. Beware. You cannot stop listening to it.

Peter- I agree 100%. There's nothing else quite like this out there. They are just outstanding musicians and I simply enjoy the energy in the music. Same reason I like Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

No doubt! Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Murph- Check out the tutorial on the bonus DVD. It's done pretty well and she demonstrates the technique slowly so you can see it. That triplet strum is awesome. After understanding what she is actually doing, I am all the more awestruck by her talent. There is no way to really see it via the youtube videos, just too small and I don't think the framerate is fast enough to see it anyways.

You're welcome David. More than happy to share and glad you are enjoying it.
