Biography

The Black Crowes made old-fashioned Southern rock during an era when forward-looking musical styles were far more popular. Nonetheless, since their 1990 debut, this Georgia band, led by frontman Chris Robinson and his guitarist brother Rich, have proven to be a popular touring act, churning out sensual blues-rock that recalls the Rolling Stones and other classic-rock groups.

BBC Review

It’s an interesting quirk that, having been around for two decades, The Black Crowes can now be considered as ‘classic’ or ‘veteran’ in much the same way as the bands they made their name touring in support of. And credit where credit’s due: instead of farming out a standard Greatest Hits – remember, we live in a world where InMe are releasing such a compilation and, what’s worse, having the gall to do it with a straight face – they’re presenting a collection of largely acoustic takes on songs from the length and breadth of their catalogue. It’s not simply a case of switching out the electric guitars, though; the reimagined takes prove the Crowes are entering their third decade with enough drive to look back while slyly suggesting what lies ahead.

Even though the likes of Thorn in My Pride and My Morning Song are shorn of their bluster, they are dusted with enough new ideas culled from the band’s seemingly effortless live jamming that they feel like thoroughly different songs. The former, which suddenly changes direction into a loose stomper, is a particular highlight, as is the expansive, almost lazy melding of Ballad in Urgency and Wiser Time, during which almost 20 minutes pass by. And as Soul Singing and She Talks To Angels ably demonstrate, the band aren’t afraid of messing with an established formula to put a new spin on what is practically considered gospel from the back catalogue. What soon comes across, and what is perhaps the best thing that can be said about Croweology, is that it’s not rough enough to feel like a collection of demos or a live recording, but it’s just the right side of raw to be the good kind of loose.

While Downtown Money Waster and an overlong Non-Fiction stray a little too far into self-indulgence, these are easily forgiven sins as Croweology is essentially a victory lap. It’s long enough to be slightly impenetrable if you’re not immediately aware of the band – after all, if you don’t know, say, how Hotel Illness originally wasn’t quite so country-ified then it’s hard to appreciate in and of itself – but anyone who has enjoyed the Crowes’ live show will find it a veritable trove of delights.

Product Description

Non è la prima volta che i Black Crowes annunciano di volersi ritirare dalle scene, mossa che spesso corrisponde ad un furbo stratagemma per fare cassa: basta annunciare l'ultimo disco o l'ultimo tour per attirare stuoli di fan adoranti al capezzale del dinosauro in fin di vita. La mossa dei fratelli Chris e Rich Robinson ci coglie però di sorpresa per almeno due motivi: innanzitutto perché era stata già messa in campo nel 2002, all'indomani della pubblicazione di quel vistoso passo falso intitolato "Lions", e poi perché la decisione avviene dopo due album che avevano evidenziato l'eccellente stato di salute della band. "Warpaint" del 2008 e "Before The Frost...Until The Freeze" dell'anno successivo, furono in effetti salutati molto positivamente dalla critica, e lasciavano presagire una ancor più longeva carriera per il combo americano, l'unico davvero in grado di riportare in voga i grandi suoni del Southern Rock. Alla luce di tutto ciò, ci sentiamo di interpretare la decisione più come un momento di pausa che come un addio definitivo, anche perché ci dispiacerebbe veder suggellare un importante percorso artistico con un disco per certi versi sommesso. "Croweology", il quale giunge in corrispondenza del venticinquennale della band di Atlanta, ha indubbiamente molti pregi, come quello di dare una nuova lettura a molte composizioni, oppure di rivalorizzare alcuni brani rimasti un po' in ombra, concedendo loro una seconda possibilità. Ma la scelta di dar vita a un doppio album acustico fa emergere lo spirito di una band più prossima alla pensione che a tenere accesso il sacro fuoco Southern. Nulla da eccepire sulle capacità tecniche del gruppo, ma riproporre venti pezzi in salsa quasi esclusivamente unplugged rende il lavoro un tantino piatto e

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent enough 'best of' with a twist. 6 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a double album of mainly acoustic versions of Crowes songs from the first six albums. While some of the songs are too similar to the original to make it worth re-recording them, others have a nice twist to them. My morning song and Girl from a pawnshop are my favourites on this album. I also like the songs with an extended jam (like they do when playing live). As this is a double album for the price of a single it is very good value for money and as usual there is always something to love on a crowes album. A nice way to begin their hiatus, lets hope for some more solo stuff and maybe some time in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Crowes Accoustic 28 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
This was the first complete album of the Crowes that I bought from Amazon and, after buying a further six albums, I can only tell you that it gets better and better. The group have a way of putting over rock music that blows your socks off every time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hallelujah! 15 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an acoustic double CD that clocks in at over 2 hours with the Crowes augmented with gospel backing singers, pedal steels, fiddles and even the odd banjo for good measure.
I think the second CD is slightly better with the highlight being 'My Morning Song' which turns into some kind of gospel jam but the overall highlight has to be the 'Ballad In Urgency'/'Wiser Time' combo as one drifts out and the other drifts in.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that a few of the songs are too similar to the originals or just don't work.
C'est la vie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crowes bow out in style! 20 Sep 2010
By DaveL
Format:Audio CD
The Black Crowes have always had a hard time finding their audience. They were initially marketed alongside metal bands and put on at shows like Donnington Monsters of Rock Festival, where, inevitably, they went down like a lead balloon. They are, however, to those in the know, one of the best rock n roll acts on the planet and have survived the test of time by delivering consistently great material through their different 'phases'.

This also means that what they don't know about rock, blues, gospel and soul ain't worth knowing. They are as much Sly and the Family Stone as they are Willie Dixon and they pay their dues alright to those who've gone before and influenced their sound. Their famous free taping policy of live gigs and extensive touring schedules have resulted in probably the biggest collection of bootlegs and live recordings of any rock band. Dig into this treasure trove and you'll find superb covers of folks like Neil Young, Stephen Stills, The Band, Otis Redding, Gram Parsons, The Stones.... the list goes on.

This CD brings together most of The Crowes' best tunes, delivered pretty much acoustically, with help from a percussionist and pedal steel player. I've got to say, having seen the group play live many times, this is up there with the best of em. The band have re-worked most of the songs and played about with the arrangements and orchestration of the tunes, but in a really good way. As a result, most of them swing along nicely with a funky feel. My Morning Song goes to church at the end with a brilliant gospel stomp, followed perfectly by Downtown Money Waster in the same vein.

Any Crowes fan knows they'll hear some great solos, a bit of jamming, but most of all singer Chris Robinson's soulful vocals carry the whole thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 11 Aug 2011
By Phil T
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whilst never being the biggest Black Crowes fan in the world I had always enjoyed most of their earlier output. Suddenly with the release of Before the Frost I was hooked.I rate it has one of my favourite albums-and I was delighted when the band recorded Croweology in very much the same style.I personally enjoy the steel guitar, banjos etc-and the whole recording sounds like everybody had a great time. I know it's maybe not for die hard Crowe fans, but I really like the newer versions of the older stuff just as much-and in most cases more.

5.0 out of 5 stars some superb tracks 13 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are some really outstanding tracks on this album. Also a few so-so that nearly dragged my rating down to 4. I would say that although some of the numbers are acoustic versions of old songs, this would still make an excellent introduction to the BCs. And by acoustic, I dont mean thin anaemic or slow - not one man and a guitar - these numbers are as full-on gloriously tuneful and rocky as any electric version.
