"American Way begins to wind down with 'Carrie’s Song,' arguably the best track of the release. Some people give you a piece of themselves when they sing and Gilman is that kind of vocalist. From the earliest notes of 'Carrie’s Song,' there is a visceral feel to his delivery that instantly authenticates the emotion. A soulful, blues revival track with a gospel tinge that absorbs you, 'Carrie’s Song' packs a sentimental punch while also offering a chorus that makes you want to join in and sing along with. 'She Knows' shows that Greg In Good Company is more than capable of banging out some classic 70s radio rock before they wrap things up with the simply titled 'Love.' An uptempo track with backing vocals that perfectly compliment Gilman’s leads, the music is the star here. Conveying an emotional vibe with lyrics such as 'Because love is all that matters in the end,' this final track brings American Way full circle and leave listeners wanting more.
Greg In Good Company is often compared to big names such as Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers and Weezer among others. However, by combining elements from multiple musical genres such as folk, pop, and Americana, Greg In Good Company has developed their own roots rock sound and continues to carve their own path towards success one song at a time."
"A snappy statement on the status quo you can rock to… Greg in Good Company’s 'American Way' makes for lively listening. ... Dynamic enough to satisfy, yet self-aware enough to center itself. In 'American Way,' rock is on the menu, but it’s paired with poignancy as well – lamenting the sad facts of modern life with a touch of righteous revolt thrown in for good measure.
If you’re ready for rock with a dose of depth, then have a listen. You’re likely to like this."
“The songs are written for you to think, reflect and question. And that, is a very good thing. ... “American Way travels through several genres as you listen track by track. With a strong indie-alternative flavor, its sound is refreshingly light as it balances against weighty topics. Overall, it’s fast and fun and ends with a song called called ‘Love.’ A total 180 from the title song, so perhaps there is hope for us after all. The album ends with the line, ‘Because love is all that matters in the end.’ How can you argue with that?”
"These are some of the most urgent topical songs I’ve heard in a good while, produced in the spirit of Bruce Springsteen, The Black Keys, and Edward Sharpe.
The timely ten-track record is a stirring, heartfelt experience as the band examine themes from the anxiety-inducing state of America right now to modern, social-media influenced romance. At the core of American Way is a lot of love, and Greg in Good Company extend that to you, dear listener, wherever you may be and wherever you may be going."
