"If you yearn to tune in a Johnny Cash of your own generation, then let me introduce you to Red Idle Rejects. They play their boisterous songs with a refreshingly uncluttered energy. There’s an insistence to these songs that remind us of the essence of rock and country: expressing truths that need to be shouted, but wrapping some kick ass chords around them to soften the blow just a little. At the epicenter of this important task is the originality of the material, which offers everyone a moment to shine."
"As usual, Red Idle Rejects have created an entertaining album. This time around we have a mature release with depth and style. The lyrics written by Steve Bowling should make us think about life, relationships, work and politics. Genus Americanas is a brave, thoughtful release, probably the band's best album so far."
- Paul Riley, Country Music Magazine
"...this is a very pleasing and easily accessible collection of tunes. [...] Well worth a listen or three."
