Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In the wake of 2005's Modern Day Drifter, Dierks Bentley has maintained fierce career momentum, earning awards, packing concerts, and joining the Grand Ole Opry in the space of just over a year. As before, he continues to flawlessly integrate straight-ahead, unforced vocals into a riproaring sound, underpinned this time by the solid, appealing mainstream acoustic bluegrass of touring partners the Grascals. The opening track, "Every Mile a Memory," defines the album's direction, buttressed by the witty "That Don't Make It Easy Loving Me." He projects clarity and desperation on "Trying to Stop Your Leaving," enhanced by an understated, yet appropriately tense arrangement. "Band of Brothers" celebrates the quintessential travails of musicians playing the low end of the honky-tonk circuit, while his all-inclusive, courageous views on "The Heaven I'm Headed To" may not please hardcore red-staters. The perpetual debate pitting country modernists against traditionalists often reaches the same levels of intensity as in current politics. Long Trip Alone demonstrates the smartest solution: quality modern country of the moment that simultaneously honors its past. --Rich Kienzle

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound, Great CD - Bentley has another winner October 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
From start to finish, Dierks Bentley has released his most "complete" CD thus far. Covering the well-worn country landscape of redemption, wanderlust, heartbreak, honky tonks and bars. Overall, the tone is more reflective than that of the first 2 CDs - yet, there are enough rowdy "independent wanderer without-a-care-go-my-own-way" goodtime songs to keep the frat party crowd happy. This is a balanced collection of up-tempo party songs with wonderfully heartfelt ballads and the moving bluegrass tune "Prodigal Son's Prayer".

He co-wrote each of the 11 tracks and his voice has deepened since the last cd "Modern Day Drifter" - Bentley's warm tenor has gained a richness and his phrasing hints at the knowing weariness of the well-traveled road warrior. In listening to this CD in succession to the first two CDs - the "Bentley sound" becomes very distinctive with this new entry. Bentley has surrounded himself with a top notch studio band of seasoned Nashville session players (S. Brewster, J. Carter, JT Corenflos, B. Sutton, G. Morse, A. Haynie, R. Terrell). He gives them room to breathe - producing a wonderfully muscular sound in the arrangements that blend the best of traditional country with terrific fiddle (A Haynie), banjo and mandolin (B. Sutton) and lap and steel guitar (G Morse) with terrific propulsive percussion (S Brewster), melodic bass (J Carter) and superb guitar (JT Corenflos).

Several of the tracks - most notably "Every Mile A Memory", "Long Trip Alone", and "Trying To Stop Your Leaving" - evoke the sound of newer influences on the traditional country sound such as the rhythmic, keening guitar work of Coldplay and even U2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dierks does it again!! November 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Another fine piece of work by one of country's rising stars of today. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing him in concert for the second time this past summer. He puts so much energy and passion into his music and his shows that it's almost mind-boggling. It doesn't look like he plans on slowing down anytime soon, either. I was instantly drawn to each song on this latest effort, even after the first listen. Dierks Bentley has kept up with his traditional style from previous albums. Once again, he mixes in a little honky-tonk with a little bluegrass and traditional country, as well. In addition to the first single, "Every Mile A Memory", other standout tracks include "The Heaven I'm Headed To", "Free and Easy", and "Prodical Son's Prayer". But dont' take my word for it. Listen for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST yet! October 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Wow.... wow... wow. Having been a long-time fan of Dierks Bentley ever since he came out with his first cd, I must say that this newest cd far exceeded my expectations. This is his best cd ever! He has truly come so far in his musical career, and you can really hear and feel the emotions behind the songs. What I love about this is he stays true to himself, and is honest in everything he sings. All of these songs are my favorites! Every one of them is unique and just fantastic.

if you're looking for great, enjoyable quality country music, this is the cd for you

WAY TO GO DIERKS!! Keep it up!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great country effort from Dierks Bentley October 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
What makes up country music? Songs of lovin, livin', leavin', drinkin', and carryin' on. What makes up Dierks Bentley's third album? Pretty much all that, plus a lot of heart. These are songs that you and Bentley can both relate to; he compares losing his love to tossing a penny in the Rio Grande; references country/rock buddies Cross Canadian Ragweed; features bluegrass tourmates The Grascals; declares that Heaven is a place where even "thieves and prostitutes" can enter; and bemoans the life he's found on the road, while honoring his heroes, friends, and family who help support him. There's nothing surprising here, which isn't much of a surprise itself--after all, Bentely has always worn his life out on his sleeve.

Dierks Bentley isn't the most original artist out there; hell, half of his licks and melodies "borrow" their power from old Waylon Jennings tunes. What we like about Bentley is this: his honesty. He makes records that he is living or has lived in the past. LONG TRIP ALONE more-or-less chronicles his life on the road, showing you how hard-touring he really his. This record is just as strong as its predecessors (as Bentley sings: "We ain't no rookies, it's our third tour of duty"), featuring those driving rhythms that, though they don't make him unique, do make him stand out from his contemporaries. LONG TRIP ALONE will please those who have already been captured by Bentley's music, and perhaps wrangle a few more into the herd.

4.0 out of 5 stars FACM ( French Association of Country Music ) review October 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is Dierks Bentley's fourth album ( he had released one in 2001 entitled "Don't Leave me in Love") and once again, it is a pleasure listening to him. Indeed, Dierks has a very special voice, neither too deep nor too high-pitched; a very personal musical style which mixes bluegrass ( in the image of the song "Prodigal Son's Prayer" performed with the Grascals ), country rock with "Trying to Stop your Leaving", beautiful ballads such as "Long Trip Alone", etc... He has a very wide register and he gives a lot of depth of sound to his albums. Impossible to be bored. He's backed up by the best of musicians. Brett Beavers wrote a few songs for this album, but Dierks himself also did. The latter has this rhythm-breaking characteristic we can notice in "That don't Make it Easy Loving Me". There also are some instrumental solos ( steel guitar, banjo or electric guitar). In short, his album is very original and varied. His music falls within a joyful register with bouncy rhythms which will put each of us in good spirits. Dierks continues imposing his trademark, style and no doubt he will become a household name ( if he isn't already). Just let me tell you that a Live DVD should be released in 2007.
