The Robinson brothers have written nine out of the album's ten songs, and "$hake Your Moneymaker", with its gritty, rootsy rock n' roll sound, is certainly more than good enough for a debut album.
The Black Crowes' sound is a tough amalgam of rock n' roll, blues and a little bit of soul, not unlike the Faces or the Rolling Stones. The arrangements are lean, yet muscular, with bluesy guitar riffs that leave room to breathe for the excellent rhythm section of Steve Gorman and Johnny Colt, and superb blues-and-boogie piano by the Rolling Stones' keyboardist, the great Chuck Leavell.
"$hake Your Money Maker" eventually sold millions of copies (more than three in the US alone), and the acoustic ballad "She Talks To Angels" was a sizable hit. And the quality of the Robinson brothers' songwriting is consistently high almost all the way through, from the hard rock of "Twice As Hard" and "Jealous Again" to the swaggering, mid-tempo shuffle "Sister Luck" and the poignant "Seeing Things".
They also throw in a good cover of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle", but the original songs are so good that the Crowes really don't need to rely on covers.
This fine album is for anyone who likes classic, Stonesy rock n' roll with a bluesy slant. It won't be my only Black Crowes CD for long, that's for sure.
Fantastic album, every song defines the lovable rock 'n roll genre of the early 90s, with that classic 'Gibson through a Marshall' setup creating their rock sound . Standout tracks for me include 'Could I've Been So Blind', 'She Talks to Angels' and 'Struttin' Blues' and to be honest there isn't a single track on here to dislike. Awesome riffs and guitar solos. From ballads (eg 'Seeing Things', 'She Talks To Angels') to 'in your face' rockers (eg 'Could I've Been So Blind, 'Struttin' Blues') everything you could expect from the late 80s-early 90s rock era is here. 'Struttin' Blues' is particulary awesome if you're up for some air guitar!
Whether you're a Black Crowes fan or not, you've got absolutely no excuse not to buy this album if you're into rock music. They're not a particularly recognisable band in my opinion because they incorporate such a typical sound but this is why this album is so worth buying - it's pretty much in your face, good old rock 'n roll. Will never tire of this album.
On the first listen I just couldn't begin to understand how this could be the Crowes..I just couldn't....BUT..and there is a but...
Upon the second listen I began to appreciate the sheer brilliance of this debut album, it is just raw late 80's/early 90's rock at its best and is just really head and shoulders above the rest. I love it, buy it and appreciate.
It is essential if you want a full and happy life to have this album within reach at all times.
I have worn out two vinyl and about five CD versions.
The Black Crowes.
Of course they are, of course they do.
