"This quartet, with the help of some friends you may have heard of like Dan Baird and Warner Hodges, delivers one of the year’s best rock albums."
“The album is short on finesse and long on kick ass. Just like rock n’ roll should be.Producer Michael Webb (John Fogerty, Poco, and Gary Allan) keeps the mix raw and minimal. Their booking contract should contain a standard indemnity clause in the vein of “Book this band at your own risk. They may burn your venue to the ground.” Sign here please:__________________”
“Ned Van Go's fifth album makes a strong case that they deserve a wider audience. While the band can rock like Ned Zeppelin or Ned Van Halen, the Van Gos like their twang too, and play with a cohesion befitting a group that has spent lots of time together in a van.”
"Lost in the Trouble is as much swaggery swozzled good times as it is driving kick-ass rock and roll...The disc in whole has much in common with a broad swath of Americana musics old and new without ever ending up quite like any of them. Grows on ya like a motherfucker, too."
“ Carrying on the proud tradition of Southern Culture on the Skids, the Drive-By Truckers, and any country band that has dared to poke fun at Dixie living...At least Hill and the gang have booze—romanticized on “Drunk Like Shane MacGowan” (and elsewhere)—and an outlet for their deceptively smart honky-tonk grumbling.”
“Ned Van Go hold their southern pride closely to their sheepstained trousers, but you get the feeling the vehemence in the song is directed more at their betterthan- you neighbors than those across the Mason- Dixon line. Drive-By Truckers have made a career of taking the back the south’s good name. Ned Van Go add themselves to the list of southern bands proud of their heritage and that take their roots and light a fire with all the rock they can find.”
" Ned Van Go frames the hard lines of blue collar America with a rock aesthetic drawing in strands of folk, country, and punk influence punctuating not only the working man’s view, but the thinking man’s view."
“What a great rock 'n' humor cd!!! Oh boy my mix show is gonna glow because of y'all!!Love "never kissed a girl", "death by polygamy"..and of course "granny", awww hell there all great!!!! Yee haaa!!!”
“If Scott Miller and the Commonwealth had a little brother-band, it would be Ned Van Go. They even share the same musical influences: "Beer and Desperation."”
“You guys ROCK. New record is greatness.”
“With Marry a Waitress, Ned Van Go has captured the essence of "blue-collar philosophy" and set it to some mighty fine "blue-collar music". I Love this stuff!”
“BRILLIANT! EXCELLENT! Your presentation of music, inside the style and personality reflected in the tracks is very refreshing. Keep it up.”
“Wow what an overwhelming release of damm fine music….. Great songs, great band, great album!”
“What’s not to like?”
“New music out of East Nashville from Ned Van Go - Heartbroke City (self- released). This is the 4th release from a 5-piece band known for their rockin' sounds and boy, does it deliver!”
“HEARTBROKE CITY: Ned Van Go blends rock, folk, bluegrass and all sorts of music so seamlessly it reminds me of Cherry Coke. You’re not sure where one flavor ends and the other begins, but it sure is tasty.”
