"...edgy, swampy, almost hillbilly country sound that could easily come from the dense Smokey Mountains or the swamps of the Louisiana bayou...a new twist on Americana outlaw music...."
"Charlotte’s Diamonds and Whiskey are a rich delight of sweet singing and rough sound that should make new music fans thirsty... the band is not an abstract concept of Americana; it’s real music made by North Carolina natives with old souls that have been tested."
"...music that should appeal to rock fans who have no special affinity for modern country. Yet at the same time, the music is rooted enough in southern flavor that it shouldn’t alienate listeners weaned on a diet of songs about tight jeans, trucks and Fireball whiskey."
"...an inspired combo of hell raiser and beauty queen alike. Plugging a slew of riff-ready guitar hooks, the sound is more fuzzy than most radio-ready folks, lending the record a dark and bitter sheen reminiscent of the amber drink from which the band derives its name."
