"One of Western Music's A-List performers ....A brilliant album, and I mean the kind that could and should earn Classic status....What a treat you're in for! "Ride Away" is top notch."
- Rick Huff, The Western Way magazine, Fall 2009
"Excellent...One of the purest western CD's I've received in a long time. I'm thinking Album of the Year nominations next year. Our listeners will hear this one a LOT!"
- Marvin O'Dell, Around the Campfire, Heartland Public Radio
"Highest rating" (Cri Du Coeur)
- Bernard Boyat, Le Cri Du Coyote magazine, #113, 2009
"Flanders has an intimate lyric baritone voice, delivered with a palpable warmth that lets you know that this music is coming directly from a heart that is deeply rooted in roaming on horseback across the Western landscape...The true test of a recording artist is not the first great disk: it's coming up with a second disk that is as good as or better than the one that got the first acclaims. And acclaims are exactly what Rich Flanders received for his first album, 'Yondering',.. 'Ride Away,' Flanders' second album, fully deserves to be in line for the 2009 edition of the (Academy of Western Artists) awards."
- Philip Ehrensaft, The Delaware & Hudson CANVAS, December 2009
