“No matter what you think about the term alt-country, Gentleman Road is really a master of the style. “Buick Century” is a great example. On the one hand, this song is reminiscent – mostly in the harmonies – of Bob Dylan. On the other hand, it’s hard not to think about bands like Old 97s and 500 Miles To Memphis when you hear this song. It definitely has a punk rock aspect, but at the same time it has some serious twang – especially in the steel guitar.”

“Gentleman Road releases a nice little country EP with Fireflies & Gasoline. It is recorded without the help of computors, which is always a nice change-up from all the electronic music you hear today.”

“This is a great EP with just the best songs on it. There is no filler. I was left wanting though as I would love to have a full album by these guys. I can only hope that they have enough success to fund a larger project. To that end I highly recommend throwing your money at them, or at least purchase this EP when it’s available. BTW it will be available on VINYL. That’s right. Great songs AND vinyl. You can’t lose.”
