“...atmospheric heartland roots rock that romps like Ryan Adams and ruminates like Joe Henry.”
“There are, in fact, twin guitars in American Mars, but not the kind you'd expect from a Motor City act. Instead, guitarist/vox Thomas Trimble muses darkly over cold hearts and a cold heartland while producer/pedal steel player David Feeny adds twinkling touches.”
“Western Sides is an explosion of a different kind of pent-up experience - that is, the everyday kind made up of the growth, death, boredom, discovery and everything else that falls between those low-key ecstasies and decay that make up an ordinary life.”
“A sense of haunting floats throughout No City Fun, the second album for the revered Detroit ensemble. It's a sort of unearthly heartland rock...just in time to call it one of the best albums of 2001.”
“American Mars, during the years between recordings, has become a leaner, more confusing, and profound rock & roll band by aiming for the lyrical places where only ghosts dare to whisper and the musical spaces where past, present, and future bleed into one another as the timelessness of one endless twilight sky.”
“A dynamic and studied work from Detroit-based American Mars with first rate songs from the band and exceptional production.”
