Review: Robin Dean Salmon "Come On Home"

Robin Dean Salmon's forceful new rocking country project titled "Come On Home" provides a window into the soul of a musical journeyman who was born in Durban, South Africa and somehow found his way to his rightful home in the country capital of the world, Nashville, Tennessee. "Come On Home" shows that Robin Dean Salmon has found a signature sound that works.
Robin Dean Salmon has had the kind of life that begs for an autobiography. He survived turmoil in South Africa, trained in karate with Japanese dock workers, helped in his family's safari expedition company and settled in San Antonio on a large horn cattle ranch. The surprise is that these experiences are just the beginning of the complex life of Robin Dean Salmon. But music was always a constant thread in his life, and Robin Dean Salmon's years of practice have paid off with "Come On Home."

The album starts off with the outstanding "Ready Now," which has a sound that is part Billy Joe Shaver and part Reckless Kelly. It is a good mix that succeeds. Another outstanding cut is titled "Arizona Rain." This song is an upbeat declaration of the feelings and experiences of his life and includes many pop culture references. This song could be a country radio hit.

But it is the ethereal "You're The One" where Robin Dean Salmon's star shines the brightest. His passionate delivery and careful instrumentation combined with heartfelt and sincere lyrics make this the best song of the album's 15 cuts. However, "America" and "Tuesday Afternoon" also provide fitting showcases of Robin Dean Salmon's talent.

"Come On Home" is a wonderful country project and an interesting and very satisfying look at the life of Robin Dean Salmon. This is a career-defining album that is pure country music with subtle hints of his well-traveled and interesting life. CountryChart.com
