Editors’ Notes

Seven years since the Black Crowes’ previous studio album, 2008’s Warpaint features a reconstituted group celebrating their retro-southern-‘70s-Stones-to-Faces rock stomp with the same swagger and flair of decades past. Slide guitarist and North Mississippi AllStar Luther Dickinson and keyboardist Adam MacDougall send the band’s influences further south with strong nods to the Allman Brothers Band and a clearer tie to the band’s bluesy roots (“Wounded Bird,” “God’s Got It”).  “We Who See the Deep” boogies with Led Zep and a helping of Derek and the Dominos for its visit to the Mississippi Delta. With the instrumentation plenty sharp, it’s up to singer Chris Robinson to deliver the tunes and he’s in full ‘70s splendor for the Goats Head Soup languor of “Locust Street,” in full rocker command for the album’s opener “Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution,” and weaves a Zeppelin-like mystique for the intro to “Movin’ on Down the Line.” “Oh Josephine” confesses Robinson’s inner demons and tough love lines, with plenty of boogie to pass around.

Customer Reviews

Back in a big way

So glad they didn't force it with this one. It's perfect - restrained, confident, loose yet tight, ambitious. Side A through Locust Street features more straightforward song-writing with nice range (blues, rock, country, thunder and maybe their best ballad ever, Oh Josephine). Side B has the confidence and ingenuity of Abbey Road and Exile On Main Street as they crossover genres within single songs. Steve Gorman (drums) and Sven Pipien (bass) are as good a rhythm section as there is. New guitarist Luther Dickenson (North Mississippi All-Stars) complements Rich Robinson well. But to me the star is Chris Robinson. Great lyrics in spots and flawless vocals throughout. Do yourself a favor, buy it and go to a show, you won't be disappointed.

Great CD

It's official, There's two great rock n roll bands left, Pearl Jam and the Black Crowes.

Why did they wait 7 years? One word... perfection.

This album is an absolute must have for the rock'n'roll purist. It delivers what we love about the Black Crowes: funk, swagger, sarcasm, psychedelia, and a vintage sound that can only be produced by those who truly appreciate the foundations of rock'n'roll. In a world of glorified karaoke and fashion first, sound second performances- "Warpaint" delivers the magic that has been handed down by the likes of Young, Dylan, Richards, Page, and Allman.

Biography

Formed: 1984 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N' Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely. The Black Crowes, on the other hand, replicated that Stonesy swagger and Faces boogie perfectly. Vocalist Chris Robinson appropriated the sound and style of vintage Rod Stewart, while brother Rich Robinson fused Keith Richards' lean guitar attack...
