All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus enjoyed a good deal of crossover success in 2007, when "Face Down" became an enduring single on both pop and modern rock radio outlets. Rarely had an emo band dominated the Top 40, much less with a song that employed screaming vocals, and the group's debut album surged to platinum status as a result. Released two years later, Lonely Road attempts to replicate its predecessor's appeal with a wildly eclectic track list, all the while remaining rooted in the typical emo trappings of nasal vocals, anthemic choruses, and distorted guitar stabs.

Veteran producer Howard Benson gives the album a meticulous studio polish, stacking guitar riffs like bricks; an honest-to-God gospel choir is even employed during the title track, welcoming Southern rock elements and Kid Rock-styled soul into the mix.

    I'm a big fan but this was just not as good as there last album

    I must say that I loved this groups album Don't you Fake it The entire CD is my favorite and one that fits my life. however I cannot say that Lonely Road does the same. Though the Album is good they try to focus on the Sucess of songs like Your Gaurdian Angel and Cat and Mouse. while taking out most of the screaming and hard riffled Guitar parts. While the Song Pen and Paper is my favorite that seems to be the only song that fits there sound from the past album. Some of the Songs sound countrish and his voice does not fit to well in that. Though the CD may not be as good as there last I enjoy songs off it. My Favorites are Pen and Paper and Step Right Up. Old RJA fans have been warned you might not like this and the songs also do not have the depth that the others did as well.
