Whether the Black Crowes can ever stay together for long depends much on the volatile relationship between brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, who before setting out to reunite the entire band, worked out a 2006 tour for which this album was named. Compiled from tapes of a three-night engagement at the Roxy in Los Angeles, Brothers of a Feather is an intriguing way to hear the men at work. Singer Chris hears himself as an old-school blues shouter, likely to ratchet up to the extreme ends of the emotional scale (“Cursed Diamond”), while brother Rich balances between quiet acoustic arrangements and slashing and loud electric bursts. Without a rhythm section, the songs seem to meander, contracting and expanding at will. This stream-of-consciousness approach works nicely with John Martyn’s “Over the Hill,” Lowell’s George’s “Roll ‘Um Easy” and their own 12-minute rendition of “Thorn In My Pride” that’s been nicely invigorated by the years of lay-off. The band is missed over the long haul, but in individual doses and as a look at the inner machinations of the group, Brothers may not be an expose, but it does reveal a bit about the musicians’ temperaments.
amaze ing. i got really excited when i saw this. i pooped myself when i heard over the hill.
Solid Blues Sound!
As a fan of The Crowes this album is exceptional. Great, simple sound. Just Chris' voice and Rich's guitar, plus a few backing vocals. A great mix of a couple old Black Crowes selections with a few of Rich's songs thrown in, but some old school blues/country selections. Kick back and have a cup of coffee with this album.
Pure, Sweet Harmony!!!
This work by Rich & Chris is an amazingly warm, wonderful, and soulful experience. The music and songs of Brothers of a Feather are ethereal and transcendent! Listening to Rich & Chris sing and play together evokes you in a most positive way and touches you deep inside your soul.
