4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 23 Aug 2005
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
Since seeing Crown of jewels supporting Bon Jovi a few years ago, I have been a fan of this band.
There are some classic, fantastic songs on this CD. 'Winterland' and 'Rain' being the main hits for me.
Overall brilliant album.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Did I Miss This Band???????? 31 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
46 thumping good tracks for just 7.49 (at time of review) ...whats not to like. I came across this band very late due to Darren Reddick giving The Healer and the cover of the old Sweet track No You Don't some extensive airtime on Planet Rock. I got drawn into the catchy tunes and pounding guitar hooks and Jean Beauvoir's astounding voice which at times sounds like JBJ, at times is akin to Peter Cetera and at times very much his own sound. The music ranges from thumping stadium rock to mellow ballads but overall I have to say this is an album that has no real weak tracks. I for one love it and I am just disappointed I have missed the chance to see this band live because they don't appear to be doing anything new and their website hasn't been updated in over 2 years.

My fave tracks are:

Winterland - a superb album opener with catchy vocals, The Rain - another tune that gets into your head and you end up singing along in the car, Hike It Up - this is so like a Kiss track its untrue and is a great foot tapper, No You Don't - a great cover of the little known Sweet track, Live And Die - a fantastic pounding base and drum hook set to some anthemic vocals, Standing On The Corner - a great power ballad, The Healer - just a fantastic, catchy, high paced rock track that will have you singing along, Secret Jesus - just a superb song all round, 'Til The End - another strong ballad, Lost Cathedral - amazingly catchy upbeat song for a final track but again you find yourself singing that chorus hook.

You will buy a lot of over-hyped albums for a lot more money (A Different Kind Of Truth by Van Halen springs immediately to mind) and they wont better this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Anthology from an Under-appreciated Band 20 Sep 2006
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Crown of Thorns is another quality AOR/melodic rock group on the Frontiers label. Led by singer/guitarist Jean Beauvoir, who has ties to bands as varied as the Plasmatics and the Ramones to Doro and KISS, the band plays fairly straightforward, not too heavy, melodic rock with a few quirks. To my ears they sound like the offspring of TNT and Enuff Znuff with some trace elements of King's X thrown in for good measure. That, and a major Beatles infatuation.

The 3-disc compilation Crown Jewels provides a nice overview of the band's career, and features a total of 46 tracks, all of which have been digitally remastered. Among the highlights of the Crown Jewels set are a pair of Christmas songs (exclusive to this set), a brilliant cover of the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" and a duet with Doro Pesch on the song "Shed No Tears". A 24-minute video interview with Beauvior is also included, which is a nice addition. This is a great way to become familiar with the band's work, though it does have a somewhat hefty price tag. It's also a nice collection for long-time fans, as it is the first time we get to hear these songs with such improved sound quality.
