The critics are weighing in on Good Times Comin':

The Portland Phoenix: "The Molenes have taken the mother tongue of American roots music and shown once again they are utterly fluent." (Sam Pfeifle)

The Boston Globe: "A Stones-meets-Son Volt gem." (Jonathan Perry) "You'd think these guys were put on earth to stand here at the crossroads of space, time and rock 'n' roll to do exactly this." (Jerome Clark)

Spotlight Magazine: "Sounds like the product of a fiery jam session between Uncle Tupelo and ZZ Top where a case of Bud and a bottle of Jack are being shared liberally." (Chris Hislop)

The Patriot-Ledger: "The album you knew they had in them." (Chad Berndtson)

In the Charts: Good Times Comin' reached #18 in the FAR (American Roots) radio chart shortly after release, and climbed to#44 in the prestigious Americana Music Association (AMA) by early November.

The Molenes have been selected as a "River Rising Star" by Boston's leading independent commercial radio station, WXRV 92.5 FM The River.
