I believe so too — seems we may be in the minority here though....  I've owned this CD for years now, and still play it every now and again.  I like this song — 8 for me

If this song were not so long, I might be persuaded to appreciate it. Sadly, this is not the case. I think "Ho Hum" sums it up at 3.

If you don't appreciate this genre of music, or are not inspired by it, that's fine.  Since when has popular music not been marketed with the same methods that "they" sell sports cars or any other products?  Do you have a copy of the Blind Faith album with the original cover?

The angle is a booby trap - you might be disappointed!

This song is simply bad. Her vocals are weak and off key with the simplest of boring melodies.  Really just bad. Like a cover band trying to cover some "almost made it" 90's band from Seattle.
 

Very-very bad indeed!
Like titis in beer!
I bet that drummer is a right tit!!

I think you're quite confused. The monologue re: a girl being kidnapped is from the CD Dead Inside, and that whole CD is creepy. But no such thing on this CD.

very pretty piece; oddly, I keep thinking I'd like to hear Michael Stipe do a cover of this.  It would be a very different take, but very nice, too.

even a nipple on the cover can't save this...2.

Huh.  I thought this was Heather Nova.
This would be perfect to do my stretches to, with only candle-light and some fragrance... If only we had the hardwood flooring we intended actually laid down and not stacked in boxes in the living room... *sigh* Still, a really good song.
Nice bass line and drums.
Oh, this is a good day!  Got to hear some This Mortal Coil earlier in the day, and now some Palominos!  Thanks Bill.

In general, breasts seem to make people happy—-why all the commotion?
I loved hearing this song  —-had no idea they sounded like that; but from what I read, they had many different sounds—maybe just start with this one.

Yes.  And Anton Fier = genius. 

Who let her sing?  Sorry, just don't like this.  Repetitive and whiny. 


This song is cool...

You should be busted for that comment, you boob!

Sounds like she is singing "Sh*t has never been so pure" or is she really?

I would suggest this GPs release instead:

Shush! I'm at work and you're going to get me canned.  It's bad enough I have to look over my shoulder because of the album cover.

Great song, and I love that nipple on the cover...


I strongly recommend this CD—it's an incredible listen, best done with a little wine or ?, with a huge pair of 70's headphones in a neutral dark room. Or with a friend.

That's pretty funny - the guys behind the Palomino's are about as good musically as anybody going around....Bill Laswell, Anton Fier, Nicky Skopelitis. Palomino's aren't my favourite albums from these guys but the musicianship is top notch. I'm surprised and disappointed that so many RP listeners are more interested in talking about a perfectly natural picture of something that about half of us have than what they're listening to - seems a bit juvenile to me.
 
What a boob.

Fool, no one said anything about banishment, the suggestion appears to be aimed at putting a nay-sayer in closer touch with something that might better meet their apparent tastes.  Unlike your over-the-top and insulting reviews Mr. Fluffy Wood Shavings (def. of excelsior), RadioDoc made no attempt to poison the listening experience for the rest of us.

The combo of the tune and the cover art is soothing in an inexplicable ...

Oops, did I say that out loud?
Oh Cool!  Not so long ago, I was thinking that I would love to hear some GP's, and now I hear it.  This definitely strikes me as a RP song.

Nice but not the right time to hear it I guess. :sleep:

Nicely hypnotic music to write to! :yes: :good-vibes: And I've seen better breasts than THAT.
great bass groove and a fine breast too!

Any breast is remarkable. In one way or another. All those little tingly nerve endings leading who-knows-where....
Why is she singing about Alan Shearer? (Footballer for those listeners not residing in the UK) I felt like a right tit when I saw the album cover.
C'mon haters of the cover art! Relax - its just a human body part. Some of us actually have them I'm told. RP is just trying to keep us abreast of some great new music! :-)

Imo people who go all unglued at the sight of a perfectly normal boob need to recalibrate their sense of reality. Great music btw...

Good comparison...this has potential. And for those critical of the cover art, I would remind you of the artistic precedent set by Spinal Tap's album "Smell the Glove". They're so clever, those boys.
I don't know this album but this particular boob is really good. It's got a really boobie groove and that bass is just boobie! I'd love to boob more from this boobie! Adding them to my must-boob list! Boob again, RP!

Thank god not all boobs are remarkable, travelling to/from work would be one long road hazard. Still, even the very bland ones can be fun once you come up and say "Hello" to them. =)

Jup, and the spoken vocals on Dead inside are Nicole Blackman ripping away with her own texts. Gut wrenchinlgy good she is... Check out the Recoil albums "Unsound Methods" and "Liquid" if you want more Nicole =) Fact is I might even upload a few, though they are probably not acceptable to the majority here.

You might find this interesting. It is from Amazon.com... Alan Caylow (on Amazon.com) wrote:
The Ultimate Audio Aphrodisiac! February 27, 2001 Reviewer: Alan Caylow (USA) The Golden Palominos are a New York-based studio group masterminded by ace drummer/producer Anton Fier. Fier remains the only consistent member of the Palominos from album to album (albeit with occasional holdover members), and he always has a continuing revolving door of musicians and singers to round out the Palominos line-up on each album. That way, the Palominos are never the same group twice, nor do they ever deliver the same album twice. With each new album, the Palominos have gone from avant-garde jazz-rock, to straight rock, to pop, to folk, to ambient, and, most recently, to spoken word (with "sound collage" accompanyment). No matter what the line-up or musical direction is on any given album, the Golden Palominos have delivered some of the most refreshing, exciting music ever committed to tape. And yet, it's absolutely astonishing that Anton Fier's unique studio project, despite major critical acclaim, has never risen past a cult following. The Golden Palominos are *still* the music business' best-kept secret group. The best shot the Palominos have had so far at achieving mainstream success was with 1994's "Pure," an astounding CD that is not only a work of genius, and the Palominos' best album, but is also far-and-away, hands-down the most *erotic* album ever recorded. With it's hypnotic tunes, sonic landscapes, beautifully lush production, and the sensual vocals of Lori Carson & Lydia Kavanaugh, "Pure" simply seduces you. FABULOUS musicianship is on display here: Anton Fier's slammin' drumbeats, Bill Laswell's ultra-fat & funky basslines, masterful fretboard work from Bootsy Collins, Knox Chandler & Nicky Skopelitus, atmospheric keyboard-playing from Amanda Kramer, and finally, the aforementioned lovely voices of Lori Carson & Lydia Kavanaugh. From the gorgeous acoustic opener "Little Suicides," to the phenomenally dreamy title track, to the memorable half-spoken, half-chanted finale "Touch You," this album is an exquisitely beautiful work of art. The "Pure" line-up of the Golden Palominos *almost* toured in support of this brilliant album. Alas, the tour was ultimately scrapped for financial reasons, which is not only a pity, it's a tragedy! I would've LOVED to have seen this version of the band live. What a fantastic show it would've been....oh well, there's always the album. From the very first time I ever heard "Pure" (while shopping in a music store, by the way), I knew that this was an album that was truly something special. That it failed to reach a mass audience is a total mockery of justice. EVERY home, in my opinion, should have a copy of "Pure" by The Golden Palominos. It's original, intelligent, meticulously produced, & seductive. Buy The Golden Palominos' "Pure" right now---it's the ultimate audio aphrodisiac!
Lovely complexity both with voices and instruments. Especially like the rough breathiness in certain areas as a contrast to the overall smoothness. An 8 for sure.
This CD is both disturbing and dreamy, and definitely worth having. The first track is a monologue of a kidnapping/killing of a young woman. Pretty much the most disturbing thing I've ever heard. Incredibly artistic CD overall.

I've wondered about that for years. Direct investigation is warranted.
Golden Palominos have better songs, Little Suicides or Wings for example.... hopefully more songs will be played so people will give them another chance.
I like the voice, but not this tune; I'll have to check out some of the other work she/they did.
Is that a nip? Not a sexy one.
hate it, ugh

The vocals and music sound like they were recorded separately for different projects and then crammed together at the last minute to get them out the door.

The first few cuts on this album are amazing. My boyfriend (now husband) first played this for me, so it's special...

Haven't heard this song in a long time. Thanks for playing it. It's not the best song out there, but it definitely brings me back to when I was really into this sort of music.
Nice stuff! Reading about this band on AllMusic.com makes me think that I need to go out and buy some. In the means time, I'd love to hear more songs.
