Diamonds & Gasoline

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Hailing from Oklahoma, the Turnpike Troubadours have their home state deep in their blood: their music is earthy, natural, and unpretentious, which doesn't mean that their second album, Diamonds & Gasoline, is artless. While there's no mistaking that the bandmembers cut their teeth in dancehalls and roadhouses, there's also little question that the group, led by singer Evan Felker, also draws deeply from the well of Americana storytelling, often recalling Steve Earle and Bruce Springsteen, only whittled down to their essence.

Hailing from Oklahoma, the Turnpike Troubadours have their home state deep in their blood: their music is earthy, natural, and unpretentious, which doesn't mean that their second album, Diamonds & Gasoline, is artless. While there's no mistaking that the bandmembers cut their teeth in dancehalls and roadhouses, there's also little question that the group, led by singer Evan Felker, also draws deeply from the well of Americana storytelling, often recalling Steve Earle and Bruce Springsteen, only whittled down to their essence.
