…catchy-as-hell hard-rocking blues. – HIGH TIMES
[9.5/10] Dirty Spliff Blues is an all-encompassing trawl through some dark side of a party that never seems to end, all of which happens over the sort of retro blues stomp which is somewhere between Seasick Steve, The White Stripes and Kyuss… nothing short of magnificent. – MAXIMUM VOLUME
On Dirty Spliff Blues Left Lane Cruiser sticks to what they do best, playing blues changes with all the noise and volume they can muster and with a commitment to the heavy that they’ve managed to separate from the metal. Dirty Spliff Blues is as good an exercise in bong-infused blues as Left Lane Cruiser have delivered in a while, and if you want to keep the neighbors awake and have a good time doing it, this will do just fine. – ALLMUSIC

Dirty Spliff Blues by Left Lane Cruiser is awesome in its intensity, drive, and swagger. It’s so rare to hear music these days that’s actually transgressive, in-your-face, and unapologetic. You know, just like the blues used to be. They know how to create a wall of fuzzy guitar blues sounds cranked up to 11. There are touchstones to early rural Mississippi blues and I have a feeling Son House and Howlin’ Wolf would feel right at home at a Left Lane Cruiser show. – AMERICANA MUSIC SHOW
The last time we were discussing Fort Wayne, Indiana’s pride and joy Left Lane Cruiser, it was a little duo with a big, grimy sound.
