More Great Blogs are Buzzing about the Debut album.

MidLife Motorcycle Madness says You cannot pigeonhole their music into one safe genre or make a comparison to one other single popular band. The closest I could come up with to maybe compare them to would be the Eagles.Some of the songs have a definite Classic Rock style & sound and others have a more Modern Country or Americana type sound. You can hear all kinds of instruments in the MeanStreet Riders music from electric guitars to banjo.The vocals are solid with lots of harmony.

Easy Rider Ramblings Blog said they hear influences that are similar to the Eagles, ZZ Top, Jackson Browne, Zack Brown Band, Tim McGraw, Rodney Adkins, Allman Brothers Band, Skynard (yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd) and even a bit of Chris Isaak. Every song written with emotion with a Been there, done that feel throughout. It’s incredible to be able to relive some of my rides and experiences thru words and music. It makes me want to jump up, dance and ride.

Iron Works Magazine are giving the Riders a thumbs up for the album track by track with all 10 songs. Irons Works said the Riders have created music that will “haunt your soul.” “The boys have taken the feeling of riding and translated it to harmonies, strung chords, picked strings and driving compression”. With Comparisons to Jackson Browne, Allman Brothers Band, ZZ Top and Shooter Jennings and saying its “Southern Rock Done Right!” http://iwblogger.com/2011/street-riders-southern-rock/
The Riders are also getting another thumbs up from The Biker Hotline magazine The worlds largest online magazine for Bikers. Jack Lawford the magazines editor says its “Foot Stompin and it’s an album that once it goes in your CD player, it ain’t coming back out any time soon!” and “Guaranteed to have your feet keepin’ the beat with a number of the songs, especially “I’ve Had a Good Ride”, where the lyrics reflect many things bikers hold as a God-given right including the freedom to ride the open road in the company of their brothers.” http://www.bikerhotline.com/bookreviews/2011/11mstreet/
Reviews from France are also coming in from Motorbiker Magazine saying “Though there are many motorcycle riding musicians out there, with a few exceptions, not many write and sing about motorcycles and do it in a professional way. The Riders are one of the exceptions”.

Danielle David contributing writer for Yahoo Entertainment says “The Riders are gaining momentum throughout the Country with similar sounds as the Eagles, many listeners are enthused with the band’s musical talents and devotion to life, liberty, and the pursuit of freedom.”

The album is set to release in late June or early July and will be carried by J&P Cycles, Amazon and many other aftermarket parts suppliers in the riding world.
