“Bob Seger, an American rock icon, releases his best work in two decades with a fresh and vital new CD…..a guy who stands as the lion of literate American rock….In both energy and focus, “Ride Out” is a more likable and open effort than anything Seger has produced in two decades…The first half doesn’t downshift for a second, plowing through muscular rockers with the spit of his prime. The opener, “Detroit Made,” sounds like something Seger might have cut in his peak: 1975 to ’80…..”                                                                                                                         Jim Farber – NY Daily News

“From its opening track “Detroit Made” to closer “Let The Rivers Run” Ride Out boasts all that is good about Bob Seger: Thoughtful lyrics, a mix of music with a smattering of country and R&B but always, at its core, rock; and the sense that an actual statement of some sort is being made.  Bob Seger is remarkably still in the game…Ride Out does Seger’s legacy proud.”                                                                                                                                             Dave DiMartino—Yahoo! Music

His gruff rasp, steeped in the soul music and no-fuss rock ‘n’ roll that shaped his early career, is indeed made in Detroit, as the opening track announces. But Seger’s sound is closer in feel to the burly country of Zac Brown, Travis Tritt and Jason Aldean, who are themselves deeply influenced by the ’70s heartland rock that the singer helped create.”                    Greg Kot – Chicago Tribune

“Bob Seger is rough and real on ‘Ride Out’…In the realm of things that are rugged and real — pure Michigan, dare we say — one of those has to be Bob Seger’s voice…. The raw power of his voice is on full display on “Ride Out,”                                     Sue Whitall—The Detroit News

“Mr. Seger ranks high on the shortlist of All-American rock stars— John Mellencamp, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen—whose hits in the 1970s and ’80s created a musical map of the heartland. To his core fans, Mr. Seger represents something mythic, thanks to his stick-to-your-ribs rock and lyrical images of wild youth and long roads leading to the mountains.”                                                                                                                                                      John Jurgensen—Wall Street Journal

“Bob Seger is much cooler than you think.    our man still has his finger on the pulse of the modern roots-rock scene, and it shows in this sturdy burly collection.  There’s plenty of meat-and-potatoes rock and blues here for you to chow on and wash down with your favorite domestic beer…                                                                                                                           Robert Ham—Paste Magazine

“Witnessed Bob Seger and the SBB in Grand Rapids last night.  If the Arena were a space ship, we’d have launched. Wow.”
                                @Jeff Daniels, Twitter

“Bob Seger could’ve just coasted on the familiarity of his dozens of hits Thursday at a packed United Center.  Instead, the dependable heartland rock veteran put on a clinic for any fellow artist or music fan wondering what it takes to keep filling arenas and pleasing audiences well into a career that spans six different decades.  Seger sang every word like he meant it, and backed up the conviction with a contagious energy expressed through body language that announced how much he loves his job.”                                                   Bob Gendron, Chicago Tribune

“….the fact that Bob Seger can still play to [sold out crowds] at the United Center in 2014 is a testament to a time in rock ‘n’ roll that is not coming around again.  His song catalog, groomed over long fought years in bars and later the big rooms, ably filled a 100-minute show and has sustained a career that no longer needs to play to fashion trends in music or dress. Seger, appears genuinely happy to show up for work, and doesn’t pretend he’s something he’s not.”                                 
                   Mark Guarino, Chicago Sun Times

“The TD Garden has played host to hundreds of shows that have featured hearty sing-alongs by adoring audiences. And then there are Bob Seger shows, where the crowd raises its collective voice with such volume, precision and ardor that the fan choir comes close to matching Seger’s own unbridled enthusiasm for the music…The Michigander’s performance was never pure nostalgia as he dealt a handful of tracks from his strong new album, ‘Ride Out,’ into the set…the barnburning Stevie Ray Vaughn tribute ‘Hey Gypsy’ and the winsome Woody Guthrie—Wilco lilter ‘California Stars’ produced a charge..”                            Sarah Rodman, The Boston Globe

“Seger is touring behind his excellent new album, ‘Ride Out’…The show featured a ridiculous number of highlights…the encores were sublime…tunes from the new album fit remarkably well with the hits…”                                              Bill Brotherton, The Boston Herald.

“For two hours—two hours!—[Seger] let everybody in the joint be 25 years old again. Best of all, it looked for all the world like he was having the time of his life.  I hate seeing ‘legacy’ artists go through their motions because they need the money or something.  Seger clearly needed the stage, and to heck with the rest of that…His songwriting gift remains unfettered.  A new tune, ‘The Fireman’s Talkin’,’ written for his firefighter brother-in-law, had all the emotion of a vintage Seger tune.  Especially wondrous was the ghost of Stevie Ray Vaughan (in particular, ‘Pride and Joy’) in a song Seger said he wrote to pay homage to the late Texas bluesman, ‘Hey Gypsy.’”                                                  Chuck Yarborough, The Cleveland Plain Dealer
