    The title track of Willie Nile's "American Ride" evokes a lovely, pleasant feeling of comfort like being buoyed by a warm, gentle breeze that never fails to evoke a smile.
    But don't expect to get TOO relaxed.
    "American Ride" is a roller-coaster deftly winding Nile's array of achingly beautiful songs and biting social commentary through a solid structure of great, new-fashioned rock
    and roll.
    The musical diversity throughout this album is very satisfying and appealing.
    It's the best effort yet by this big-hearted, live-wire of an artist, who's earned a well-deserved cult following around the globe.
    We can't wait to see what's around the corner on this continuing American Ride.

    Occasionally slightly Gallic, but consistently intoxicating, it's a trip definitely worth taking. [Aug 2013, p.103]

    With American Ride, Willie Nile joins their ranks and proves he can do it just as well as the best of them, sometimes better--Springsteen included.

    Nile's river of song runs as deep as it's wide. [Jul 2013, p.80]
