  • Summary: This is the third album for the country singer who gained stardom following the release of 2005's 'Modern Day Drifter.'

  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.

    Dierks Bentley continues to deliver sound performances and standings on the country music charts. I am positive that all songs released from this cd will in fact reach number, where every mile a memory is already there this week. Good job Dierks. Expand

    WOW! This is an amazing CD. This is certainly one of the best country albums of the year, falling short only to George Strait's new one. I hope Dierks keeps this style up in the future, because there is no doubt that its working. Expand

    Tries to break out, but you can tell he was limited by Nashville conventions.
