  1. One of the livelier and better country records of 2006.
  2. Aided by expert musicianship and spot-on production, Bentley translates his on-stage charisma to the studio better than ever before. [21 Oct 2006]
  3. Again showcases a great voice, band, and songwriting team. [20 Oct 2006, p.81]
  4. As before, he continues to flawlessly integrate straight-ahead, unforced vocals into a riproaring sound.
  5. It's a pleasant surprise that Long Trip Alone, if not quite up to the level of the best recordings in mainstream country's recent artistic resurgence, succeeds in establishing Bentley as an artist worthy of more than just passing attention.
  6. A little more texture in his vocal approach and songwriting could elevate him from able, level-headed craftsmanship to the realm of signature music, but in the meanwhile he has built a fresh supply of appealing tunes on a solid foundation.
  7. There’s no edge. No innovation. No energy. And precious few genuine hooks.
