1. AllMusic - Thom Owens
Waitin' for the Hard Times to Go is an excellent collection from a stellar bluegrass band. Instead of choosing to follow either a traditional or progressive direction, the Nashville Bluegrass Band decide to alternate between the two approaches, which makes it a considerably richer and eclectic record than most contemporary bluegrass albums. Waitin' for the Hard Times to Go won the 1993 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.

2. Marc Greilsamer
Rather than be constricted by traditional-bluegrass structure, this quintet of veterans seem liberated by it. Their free and easy style offers expert musicianship, exuberant harmonies, and an infectious zest for the material. On this effort, they tackle George Jones's "Open Pit Mine" along with a couple of hot-picking showcases and two sterling a capella gospels featuring impeccable five-part harmonies. Fiddler Stuart Duncan, banjoist Alan O'Bryant, and mandolinist Roland White handle the breaks with aplomb. Nothing revolutionary takes place, but perhaps that's the point, and although this 1993 recording picked up a Grammy, it's not significantly better than any of their other consistently solid albums. --
