With five credited songwriters, it's amazing that Earthbound's Somewhere In Between holds together as well as it does. The band comes clearly cut from the Southern jamband tradition, though mix the elements nimbly -- from the acoustic leanings of "Stony Ridge Road" to the distantly reggae tinges of "The Great Unknown." During the numerous solos, each of the five musicians is constantly contributing something interesting to the mix. Instead of playing mere support roles, they add almost microscopically to the total picture. And, hey, they've got heart. …. Jesse Jarnow Jambands.com
