The Best of 2023 (So Far)” – Raven Sings the Blues

“The Pink Stones are the very definition of their talent-rich town.” – Magnet Magazine

“…these Stones roll with the same surly twang and honky-tonking attitude that made the likes of The Flying Burritos and early Poco sound so fresh… The multi-talented Pinkston turns in a set every bit as enticing, organic and charming as his first… Fire up the lava lamp, black lights and your recreational substance of choice and dig in.” – Holler

“…a brilliant mix of classic Country and Indie Rock.” – Americana Highways

“Heart full and hummin’ or with the wolf of woe barking at their door, The Pink Stones thread yarns like seasoned vets. The record finds the Pink Stones coming into their own, cutting out the fat and wiping the haze from their eyes… The LP is the band at their best.” – Raven Sings the Blues

“If you don’t find yourself singing along with The Pink Stones on at least a couple of these songs, then something must be amiss. It will also inevitably evoke those glory days of hazy, country rock in the ’70s and might have you reaching for some of Parsons’ Sweetheart of the Rodeo fare. If so, that’s all good. It all fits so well together.” – Glide Magazine

“Athens, Georgia, band the Pink Stones mine their town’s grand tradition of Southern jangle along with the swirl of cosmic country on ‘Blueberry Dream,’ from their upcoming debut Introducing… the Pink Stones. But rather than merely imitating those styles, the group injects them with something fresh and youthful, giving ‘Blueberry Dream’ a breezy, slacker-rock feel that hits like a ray of candy-coated sunshine.” – Rolling Stone Country

“There must be something in the air in Athens, Georgia — it has produced a long line of prolific artists and rock bands. R.E.M., Vic Chesnutt, Drive-By Truckers, the B-52s, and now, The Pink Stones, a six-piece outfit creating some of the most shimmering, melancholic Southern rock in years…Introducing doesn’t just tell us who The Pink Stones are, it gets us tickled for what they’ll do next.” – No Depression

“Athens Georgia, the college town that introduced R.E.M., The Drive-By Truckers, and the B-52s to the world has once again produced an exciting rising new band.” – Under the Radar

… conjures an other-worldly mix of country, indie, and barn-storming rock on their upcoming debut…The Pink Stones already are a fresh, left-of-field addition to the world of cosmic country.” – Under the Radar

“There’s a depth of honesty, sensitivity and integrity to Introducing…The Pink Stones that few debut releases have the capacity or courage to display.” 8 out of 10 Stars – Holler

“Given this fine introduction, The Pink Stones would seem to have a promising future before them. Gram would certainly approve.” 4 out of 5 Stars – American Songwriter

“Introducing… The Pink Stones, is as energised and spirited as it is heartfelt and reflective.” – Holler

“The Pink Stones reinvigorate cosmic country…” – PopMatters

“…an acknowledgment of the Byrds, Gram Parsons, American Beauty-era Grateful Dead but an appreciation of shoegaze and, perhaps, even accidentally, the strange spacey beauty of Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno’s Apollo: Atmosphere and Soundtracks. There are glimpses of 1970s Tulsa beer halls and hordes of shit kickers hitting the dance floor. It helps, too, that there’s a subtle but profound sense of humor at work here and that repeated listens reveal the full nuances of the music itself.” – PopMatters

“…they could grow into one of the genre’s next great flag bearers, carrying Cosmic Country into the next decade.” – Glide Magazine
