The Palominos’ newest album, Come On In, is the kind of straight up, no frills, vintage country that makes that after-work beer taste even sweeter. The simple verses and catchy choruses of Come On In satisfy a need for country music at its purest.
The title track “Come On In” boasts everything great about the vintage Bakersfield sound. It’s a no nonsense, country shuffle with plenty of cool finger picking from guitarist Thomas Zurek. “Mr. Used to Be” highlights lead singer Lance Hawkins, whose edgy baritone envelopes like Charlie Feathers and flourishes like Lefty Frizzell. Produced and engineered by Mike Butler at Lost Ark Studio, the record, clear and present, glows with vacuum tube warmth. Finally, Buck Owens can stop rolling over and listen to good, clean country live on. Review: "Come On In", Turnstyled Junkpiled
The Palominos have a retro 60′s era Bakersfield sounding album out called Come On In. I really like those lead guitar licks. They aren’t too flashy but have good rock/country crossover sound to them. I’m tapping my foot to “What’s Her Name,” “Macon, Georgia,” and “You Provide The Heartbreak.” - Americana Music Show
Songs like "Mr. Used To Be" are jukebox-ready, honky tonk drinking numbers - the kind they just don't seem to write any more. "Come On In" Review, Country Standard Time
