Product description

Product Description

In 2011, after more than 20 years of intense gigging and recording, Chris Robinson set off to shape something new, a fresh rock mythology, a breathing kaleidoscopic thing stuffed with chooglin soul, bedrock boogie and shuffling wisdom birthed in intimate clubs and amongst the tall trees of the Golden State and eventually taken nationwide as the Chris Robinson Brotherhood evolved. What began as an experiment without expectations turned into a 118-show journey for Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) that surprised these seasoned pros as music of unshakeable solidity and exuberant reach poured out of them, a New Cosmic California sound with tendrils reaching to the original Fillmore West, Topanga Canyon and outwards towards far horizons. The music of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood finds its fruition on their studio debut album Big Moon Ritual, due out June 4th via Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records, to be followed by companion album The Magic Door in September.

I have the vinyl copy of this album,so its fitting the music played here reminds me of music of the 70's,and its great, straight forward well played american rock (the good type ),and as reviewers have commented it has traces of the allmans and the grateful dead ,but who cares when it sounds as good as this.Now all we have to hope for is a tour but it seems they are content to travel locally with a head full of heavy smoke! just get it, oh ,and the vinyl has got the edge with the art work.

From the opening track I was gobsmacked how brilliant this CD is. There is not a dud song on this album. I was reminded of The Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers and other jam based bands. There is some great melodies, great guitar solos and some exceptional vocals from Chris Robinson.
I actually had this CD sitting on my computer table for embarrassingly too long before I played it. It is a huge mistake on my part I did not play this earlier.
This is a very consistent collection of some great songs that deserves your attention.

I purchased this when it came out in June 2012 and initially liked it. Being a big fan of Neal Casal I was keen to hear his electric guitar playing as he's only played acoustic the last few times in Nottingham.
I found though that after a few listens Chris Robinson's voice was not for me. The music is nothing special either. All it did was make me want to play early Grateful Dead.
Sorry.

Big Moon Ritual-This album is a masterwork filled with Cosmic vibes & spirit played by a bunch of true musical heroes who feel every note & lyric from the pits of there souls.
The albums cover has a magnificent 70s style look to it with a grand canyon looking floor leading up into an arch that explodes into the cosmic night sky.
Kinda looks like the front of a spacecraft that your floating on whilst soaking in the beautiful music that surrounds you.
The album begins with tulsa yesterday a mellow country blues number that flows from a trickle into a river of sounds that inspire your soul with admiration for this band.
Track two Rosalee is an upbeat scooby-Doo hug a hippie kool & the gang adventure(Is the air gettin thinner?or are we gettin high).Star or Stone is one of the best songs ive heard this century,just perfect,a band truly glowing with inspired music.Tomorrow Blues continues the vibe with Adam MacDougall's keyboard wizardry (as it says on the back of the album) creating an atmosphere of pure hippie gold its actually possibly my favourite keyboard solo ever!
Track five Refelections on a broken mirror is a heartbreaking classic.
Beware,oh take care & one hundred days of rain bring the album to a close & this listener was inspired & touched by the brilliance of this debut Brotherhood album.
Chris Robinson is a genius & he just gets better & better like a fine wine whether your a fan of the black crowes or not you need to purchase this album it is stunning.
Hats off to Neal Casal's touching,brilliant guitar work & George Sluppicks sublime drumming too.
Im so excited for there 2nd album in september but for now i advise you to put Big Moon Ritual onto your stereo open some fine wine sit back & be inspired.

If you like the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, The Band and The Black Crowes last couple of albums then quite simply you will like this. It transports you back to that whole laid back, Fillmore East 1971 kind of vibe. If you're looking for something similar to The Black Crowes first couple of albums (Both great albums by the way)then you might be disappointed. There are no tight songs here, everything is allowed to just stretch out (The shortest track is just over 7 minutes), infact at times it does feel like a Grateful Dead live album. It's as if someone had to point out them that they're not on stage but in the studio and things need to be brought to an end. I believe they spent some time touring these songs before recording them and it shows. Although things are stretched out it is never aimless meandering. They know where they are going and how they intend to get there. Chris' voice sounds great as usual, one of the great rock singers, it almost makes me forgive him for putting the Black Crowes on hold. So if you want an excuse to break out that Grateful Dead t-shirt and have the opportunity to lay back, with a glass of your favourite brew, close your eyes and transport yourself to the Fillmore circa 1971 then I suggest you buy this album. And if you do buy it and like it I suggest you also try out the new Howlin Rain album, it pulls off the same trick. Happy listening.

Quite a spaced out psychedelic slab of music, extended jams, there are a number of "influences' on this Woodstock flower power musical journey, if you enjoy a little "Doors" and an occasional Allman Brothers Band, and Grateful Dead, and when it get's "heavy" a dash of Humble Pie thrown in for good measure. I am not sure what substance they were on during the recording sessions, but either way
it's a "trip" down memory lane, always great to listen to music laid back.

*"Magic Door", the second part of this record is release on 11 Sept 2012*
First new offering from Robinson since "Before the Frost" & defiantly carrying on, where he left off with a nice live, laid back feel to the record.
I loved the album from the very first time I listened to it, but wanted to live with the record for a while, just to make sure my option wasn't clouded by my love of Robinson's music. It's not!
I think it's the best of his solo offerings & really Strong vocals.
You may also wish to check out "Howlin Rain" who are another band on the same cosmic trip.
