"Walsh churns out fuzzed-out guitar riffs and sings with a scratchy baritone voice similar to that of Darius Rucker of Hootie & The Blowfish. The National Reserve delivers feel good, booty-shaking vibes in a guitar-heavy cocktail of classic rock 'n' roll mixed with soul, blues, roots music, and pop."
