"The rhythms, vocals, and variety all have kicked up a notch recently, with old Ghost Rocket buddies coming out of Woodward's woodwork. This latest Nitro Express is as explosive -- and polished -- a hard honkytonk outfit as you'll find around New York, and they can toss in pop originals, country rock, and bluegrass as the mood strikes"
"Successors to Woodward's popular Ghost Rockets outfit, Nitro Express mixes hard-kicking, tuneful new honky-tonk and twang rock numbers about drinkin', cheatin', and gettin' really, really lost with lively, highly proficient covers of classics about the same things. Plus a little bluegrass."
"If vocals are your thing check out Buddy Woodward & Nitro Express...sort of the male counterpart to Laura Cantrell: one of the best singers in all of country music, plus he writes his own songs and has the band he needs to deliver the goods. Think Bakersfield, 1968; that good."
"A lively banjo kicks off Buddy Woodward's version of "You Told Me," creating a tune that is at once familiar and new"
"Woodward (former leader of the Ghost Rockets) cuts a mean figure backed by a band chockfull of chops; the music ranges from Clarence White-style bluegrass pickin' to Burritoesque honky-tonk to twangy Buck Owens-tinged rompers."
"One of the most interesting entries comes from Buddy Woodward doing 'You Told Me'...perfectly capturing the 'Cowboy with the [Beatles] Revolver' formula..."
"I'll bet Hilton Valentine had the biggest dick in The Animals"
