Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
For all its stylistic variety.... Sinners hangs together thanks to Malo's consistently remarkable vocals. Listening to this guy sing -- listening to him sing anything -- is an act of pure pleasure.
Mojo
A record that impresses right from its clarion mariachi trumpet opening, through to the album's finale, a reworking of Los Lobos' "Saint Behind the Glass."
popmatters.com
The album presents a coherent world view that says more about present day life than a thousand Sunday sermons, newspaper editorials, and radio talk show broadcasts combined, and it does so with beautiful melodies and compelling musicality.
American Songwriter
Sinners & Saints has plenty of the songs Malo fans love and have come to expect from him: tasty, playful Tex-Mex inspired songs like "Superstar" and "San Antonio Baby," beautiful ballads like Rodney Crowell's "Til I Gain Control Again," and a spectacularly sung Spanish standard "Sombras." But then there's "Staying Here," which feels like new country territory for Malo as an artist and a songwriter, issuing in a Glen Campbell/Jimmy Webb renaissance.
