“[White Rose Motor Oil's] new album is a stripped-down affair that recalls Van Lear Rose, Loretta Lynn's gritty collaboration with former White Stripes frontman Jack White...[with] vocals [that] evoke The Virginian-era Neko Case." - Westword
"White Rose Motor Oil embraces classic country roots and combines them with pop-fueled beats...Upbeat...catchy pop-country...begs you to tap your feet and dance along.” They get "...your knee bouncing and your mind wandering to that happy place where things are good." - 303 Magazine
