    Lydia Loveless' Indestructible Machine possesses a classicist's grip of country, a rock & roll sense of swagger, and the keen eye of a songwriter twice her age.

    Indestructible Machine is as good as anything I've heard this year and marks the true, and truly defiant, arrival of what could be a serious talent.

    This is one of those brakes-off country records you wish more people would have the guts to make. [Oct 2011, p.94]

    Punching way above her 20 years, like a wild child Loretta Lynn, it's the sort of country music that belongs in those dives where they've got chicken wire to stop the flying glass. [Nov. 2011, p. 142]

    That pairing of punk force and country grit is nothing new, but Lydia Loveless makes it her own through the strength of a blazing voice, a fully formed persona, and bluntly crafty songwriting.

    Clearly not one to mess with, this confident, compelling outing suggests she can hold her own even within the top tier of alt-country's rowdier women.
  7. Make no mistake, Indestructible Machine is the sound of promise, the sound of hope and ultimately the sound of something truly special unfolding.

    She conveys toughness, tenderness and humor with off-handed conviction.
