...This time of year a lot of different "best albums of the year lists" are being posted. Rivertown made it into a couple of lists and made it into the Top 50 albums of 2011 on! Check it out here:

Rivertown was #8 on Best Finnish Albums of 2011 by Turku Rock City. Thanks!

"Huikeutta. Yksinkertaiset jutut ovat usein niitä parhaita." - Turku Rock City also listed Rivertown as one of their favorite albums of 2011...

"Länsirannikolta kotoisin olevalle Jerrylle on ilmeisesti syötetty isän countrylevyjä päivittäin vauvaiästä lähtien kuvittelisin. Se kuuluu, koska tyylitaju on loistava, biisit hyviä ja kokonaisuus toimii. Suomen paras countryalbumi 70-luvun Country Expressin jälkeen." - Meteli/Toimituksen valinnat 2011
