A great album most never knew about

TMD is the best album most music fans never heard about. Released with little fanfare or publicity, this album crosses genres with incredible flow and power. Chris' voice is in top form and backed by a seasoned road-weary band (Paul Stacey-guitar, Jeremy Stacey(can you say Bonzo)-drums, George Reiff-Bass, George Lachs-Keys)this album kicks when it needs to and chills when it needs to with beautiful peaks and valleys in between. 40 Days is a pumping opener with Chris spitting out staccato lines reminiscent of Dylan. Girl On The Mountain swirls and soars and is the most psychadelic track. Mother of Stone has evolved from eariler live versions to a slower version rooted in percussive rhythms. Train Robbers, another standout track, echos rock n roll misfortune of the then defunct Black Crowes while transporting the listener to the Old West. Tumbleweed is a beautiful baroque piece which translates even better live, while When The Cold Wind is a genre leaping performance art piece. California is probably the most radio friendly track and is an easy listen. The second half of the record takes off here and to me is just slightly more magical than the first half. The Never Empty Table is musical and lyrical beauty. Eagles On The Highway is the perfect Americana-rock song that again transports the listener. Surgical Glove is another standout on a number of levels; the musical outro is some of the best rock music Chris has ever put on record. The lyrics are typical Robinson in that they are familiar but totally ambiguous with an occasional Dylanesque delivery that feels intentional. Sea Of Love is a taste of metal while Piece of Wind is catchy with a great bluesy outro. All in all a pretty unbelieveable record that as usual deserved better, but is a treasured gem by those in the know. Chris Robinson, like his band the Black Crowes, will go down as one of the most dismissed, underrated, and misunderstood artists by critics of all time.


This is hands down one of the best albums I own.

For starters, I'm not really a crows fan...

...not that i dislike them, just that they never really did it for me. This album, however cut deep. For me it's right up there with Neil Young's Harvest and CS&N Deja Vu. There's not a weak tune on it. It's bittersweet and beautiful and filled with tracks whos soon familiar opening notes hit you like the first warm day after a frigid winter. buy it.
