On Leaving Eden, the Carolina Chocolate Drops follow their Grammy-winning album Genuine Negro Jig with a record of original compositions, covers, and traditional songs produced by Buddy Miller (Emmylou Harris, Robert Plant, Patty Griffin, Solomon Burke). They “may take their cues from 1920s string- and jug-band music,"" says USA Today, ""but they're simply a great band.” The Observer calls them ""the most electrifying acoustic act around."" Rolling Stone gives the album four stars. The BBC says: ""It's plain terrific.""
