"The Way Things Used To Be Album Review"

The opener "Who I Am" is in your face Rock from the get go. The track brings the melodic vocals, rockin' riffs and guitar solos that don't overpower the tone. The title track is next and has that old school Rock flair. It has some tempo changes and really mixes up the old with the modern style. "Feelin' Alright" is high tempo and perfect for the Summer. The track blazes ahead and shimmers with a Rock confidence that not too many bands have nowadays in the genre. "Whiskey Down" is the longest track on the album, clocking in around the five and a half minute mark. There's a lot packed into that run time as it shows off the true range of the band perfectly. "Death of Me" has shades of Bon Jovi to it. The track veers into a more Rock ballad path but still has a bit of bite to it. "Hold On" picks the pace back up. The track is full of energy and will surely get the live crowd moving and singing along. "Party Like A Rolling Stone" is purely instrumental for the first minute and then switches things up. The tempo is a bit more funky and shows off a different sound for the band. "Iron Horse" has a bit of a lengthy intro before it really sinks its teeth in. The track then moves forward with its classic Rock sound. "Whiskey Weed" is perfect for blaring with the windows down. The track is absolute gold for driving and keeps things tight and polished with its high octane Rock sound. The closer "Raise a Whiskey" wraps things up nicely. The riffs work incredibly well, the vocals keep everything moving at a steady pace and the melodies are on point. It's a closer that'll make the listener yearn for more.

Bigmotorgasoline keep their high octane Rock sound at a full clip with their new album. - From The Depths Entertainment

"Band Review"

If you’re a first-time listener, you’ll just shake your head about why BigMotorGasoline isn’t being heard more on modern rock channels. Let’s face it, when you start tapping your toes, slamming your knuckles in the dashboard with raw enthusiasm, and yelling out “YEAH” at the top of your lungs, you know this is the kind of music that makes life a party and the kind of tunes you want in your ears as you ride into the sunset on your Harley, road trips in your supercharged Camaro, hanging out with friends, and rockin’ it with your favourite refreshments
BigMotorGasoline is a working man’s rock and roll band with music about topics that they know best – motorcycles, fast cars, life and drinking. Their songs are best described as cutting edge rock that is loaded with guitar riffs, a bluesy swagger, and a
southern rock flavour. - Click Your Radio Classic Rock and Blues

The music of bigmotorgasoline has “an almost southern rock flavour, the energy and licks take me back to the 80’s and 90’s rock, will be added immediately to heavy rotation.” - Q108 Radio, Kingston, Ontario

"Press Quote"

“Instantly heard a comparison to fellow Canadian rockers Monster Truck as well as Texas rocker Tyler Bryant . The guitar driven rock with a touch of country is evident in such tracks as ‘BYOT’, ‘Lately’ and ‘Put It On Me’. They are great rock and roll songs… could see these tunes getting air play alongside Glorious Sons, One Bad Son, The Black Crowes and many others” - Koatic Music Reviews

"BMG is one of those bands that when they play for their audience, they give it their everything. BMG just doesn't stand for BigMotorGasoline, but it also stands for BestMemoryGiven. These guys rock the stage!!" - Rick Gibson, Music Talent Buyer & Promoter, Lindsay, Ontario.
