"Whatever you want to call it, Ink and Nicotine is a good time."
"This music isn’t just the sound of rural-covered country roots—not just another nod to the enduring legacy of the Kentucky sound—it’s a musical anthology of the mentality of the lives lived there. It’s a pioneering musical move, and it is a total success."
"And when it came time to write songs for the new Red Idle Rejects album, Bowling found inspiration in the state of affairs there, three hours south."
"A group like the Red Idle Rejects stay close to the bluegrass and country music roots of Appalachian music while paying close attention to what is happening right now. This is evident in the musical styles and in the things they sing about."
"Their Country/Folk sound is rooted in the music of deep traditions, but they also have the ability to rock out when the dynamic requires a change of mood and tempo."
