AmericanRootsUK – This tremendous album covers a broad canvas stylistically, with it’s tap root in country music but with so much more included. See more
The Alternate Root - Greg Trooper has the lead spot in his music as singer, songwriter and stage set designer. His songs cover the who, what, where, when and how in a heartbeat, clueing the listener in, involving them into the tale with the sly wink of a sideshow barker. see more
Blues And More Again – From the first few bars of ‘All The Way To Amsterdam’, Greg Trooper conjures melodies and lyrical content that may, on a single album, define the nebulous term Americana, just as he has been doing in his 30 year career. see more

Twangville – I suppose that we shouldn’t be surprised to learn that artists from Steve Earle to Billy Bragg are Trooper fans. Trooper excels at character studies, painting wonderful portraits of people living through good times and bad times. His matter-of-fact deliver – as both a singer and a songwriter – bring a sense of realism to the tales that he tells.

Rambles.net – Incident on Willow Street is resolutely unfashionable, straightforward, devoid of bombast, the musical equivalent of a meal of meat and potatoes in an out-of-the-way greasy spoon where the grub tastes good and fills you up. see more
WYCE Music Journal – Greg Trooper has been hailed by the likes of Steve Earle & Billy Bragg as one of the worlds greatest songwriters. see more
