2 Guns

by The Smoking Flowers

"A punkish/alt-country/whatever-you-need-it-to-be masterpiece" ~ Relix Jambands







- "Often beautifully ragged; sometimes beautifully haunting; many times beautifully goofy-grinned and/or playful, pleading, or pledging - but always beautiful." ~ Relix

- "There are not enough words to describe the intrinsic chemistry Kim and Scott Collins possess. The duo, better known as The Smoking Flowers, have discovered what some duos spend their entire careers trying to find: a fascinating marriage between artistic talent and subtle sensuality that pierces the attention of anyone in the same room as them." ~ The Repertoire

- "An edgy Civil Wars... or The White Stripes if Meg sang like a country angel and they lived on a dirt road." ~ Kyle O'Brien (Pitchfork)

- "provocative and risky" ~ POP MATTERS

- "Highly recommended for both rock and country fans, and especially to listeners that enjoy peeling the sheets off last night's scratch marks." ~ The Deli Magazine

- "A punkish/alt-country/whatever-you-need-it-to-be masterpiece... Kurt Cobain's ratty sweater traded for a CBGB t-shirt and bolo tie." ~ Relix Jambands

- "For the uninitiated, the Flowers make heartfelt and frequently deeply personal Americana music. 2 Guns is on our short list for Best Local Album of the Year." ~ Nashville Scene

- "As a writer it's gotten to the point where I'm floored when I discover someone with true talent and originality. Kim & Scott Collins are a couple of poets who can express such things in a way you haven't heard before." ~ The Vinyl Anachronist

- "Raw, unpolished, and exciting... a DNA mash up of Presley, Jason and The Scorchers, and Robert Plant, whom, ironically, originally considered Kim for the part now filled by Patti Griffin."  
~ Net Rhythms UK

- "Kim and Scott Collins, The Smoking Flowers, carry on the torch where Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris left off in their day, delivering beautifully produced, sometimes moody, songs with knockout harmonies...A marriage of song and voice that is uniquely their own."
~ AltCountry.NL Magazine
