Jim Lauderdale's music often walks a line between past and present as his muse escorts him from bluegrass-influenced acoustic sessions to full-band recordings that find room for retro and contemporary sounds. So Time Flies is an inspired name for an album from Lauderdale, and fittingly enough, it makes room for several varieties of the music he loves. The title cut is a contemporary country number that could find a place on commercial radio if more traditional sounds ever come back into style, and "The Road Is a River" and "It Blows My Mind" show he isn't averse to rocking out sometimes.
