"POWER PLAY MAGAZINE UK, ISSUE 112-AUGUST 2009."

“E.Z. Riders are a southern/blues rock band that specialize in a laid back Allman Brothers style of music that is perfect for sticking on in the car. (…) . “Witchy Woman” has a definite Rory Gallagher feel to it, “I Should Have Quit You” could have come from “Blue For You” and “Save Me From The Undertaker” sounds like “Tres Hombres” era ZZ Top mixed with Hendrix. The guitar work is wonderful; Alessandrini plays some very fluid lead throughout the album. Luigi Ridolfi’s bass parts are great too, though unfortunately some of them get buried a bit deep in the mix, but when you hear them, they’re impressive”.

"Blue grass, country, blues rock, southern rock, bundle it all together and you get this trio. This is the sort of group that would go down a storm at one of the UK biker fests!"

"The Album's twelve original tracks are rooted in their blues-rock history, some tracks more derivative than others, but all showing the band's raw, live credentials. Hats off to them for the love of the genre, and the graft and craft they've put into their debut".

"Radio Indy, Radio Indy.com (Mar 20, 2009)"

The blues/rock band, E.Z. Riders, have released a throwback to the days of Humble Pie with their latest effort, “Experienced Zydeco Riders.” Their roots are obvious, with raging Steve Marriott guitar riffs and gritty vocal tones reminiscent of early ZZ Top. “Witchy Woman” is by far the best track on the CD and is not an Eagles cover. Instead, it is an E.Z. Riders blues jaunt, filled with Lynyrd Skynyrd style slide guitar playing. That is really what this band and this disc are all about; strong and rocking guitars. If you crave more string bending guitar action, give a listen to songs like “I Should Have Quit You” and “Mean Mistreater” and you will get your fill. “Experienced Zydeco Riders” belongs in the hands of any 70’s blues/rock fan.

E.Z. Riders are a southern/blues rock band that specialize in a laid back Allman Brothers style of music that is perfect for sticking on in the car. () . Witchy Woman has a definite Rory Gallagher feel to it, I Should Have Quit You could have come from Blue For You and Save Me From The Undertaker sounds like Tres Hombres era ZZ Top mixed with Hendrix. The guitar work is wonderful; Alessandrini plays some very fluid lead throughout the album. Luigi Ridolfis bass parts are great too, though unfortunately some of them get buried a bit deep in the mix, but when you hear them, theyre impressive.

- Speedy Hicks, BUBBLEGUM SLUT FANZINE UK (Jul 22, 2009)

"The album kicks off with the catchy 'Real Good Love', a strong boogie number. 'Witchy Woman' opens with some harsh slide guitar that takes you back to early 70s Nazareth, the main number has influences of Rick Derringer and Pat Travers. That s no bad thing, really."
-
"Experienced Zydeco Riders ha gi ottenuto attenzione da webzine internazionali. Anima della band sono le chitarre e la voce di Alessandro Alessandrini. Gran parte del materiale proposto dagli E.Z. Riders si regge sulla solida scuola rock blues della sua sei corde."
