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.

Amorica is the best Crowes album, although Southern Harmony may be just as good.

I became a Black Crowes fan with Shake Your Moneymaker. I bought The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion and loved it. When I first bought Amorica, however, I couldn't really "get through" it for a long time... To put it bluntly, I thought it was a dud.
Years later, however, things are different. Time has a way of changing the musical landscape in order to reveal something about quality and emotion. Something, if you will, about the soul of a recording. As the years have passed, I have begun to find that the tracks on Amorica are the sountrack to my life. It was subtle at first... a vague idea that there was a track on Amorica that would suit a young man's road-trip somewhere in the urban plains... and so I skipped around until I found Wiser Time... later, the notion one night, walking home slightly inebriated, that there was some track that would really speak for my "heightened" mental state... and so I found Ballad in Urgency... then I fell in love and realized that Cursed Diamond was the soundtrack to my smile... Descending... A Conspiracy... She Gave Good Sunflower... every damn track on this disc is a classic. Not just great, like the tracks on The Southern Harmony... but a sleeping *classic*, like Gimme Shelter, like Hey Jude. Every damn Amorica track is a classic of Rock and Roll, destined to be listened to for generations, like others before them.
And so, years later, every last damn track on Amorica is one of my favorite musical tracks of all time. I can't live without this disc. Yes, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion is tight and probably more "lively"... but Amorica is more real, more beautiful, more deep, more in tune with (as Chris once said in an interview), "The Song.

It's often been said that a talented band usually hits its stride around its second or third album. The Black Crowes perfectly exemplify this theory with Amorica, their immortal third album from 1994. Until 2008's Warpaint, this was the Crowes' most creative, inspired and dreamy period. Every composition on this album is a winner, from start to finish. Standout tracks? Every one! The "Ballad of Urgency/Wiser Time" sequence is IMHO the Crowes' masterpiece. This is the Sticky Fingers or What's Going On of the 1990s, a well-constructed and tightly-played collection of songs with varying intensity but underlying common ground. If you are new to the Black Crowes, start here!

"The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion", which followed the Crowes' massively popular debut album, "Shake Your Money Maker," showed some musical and lyrical growth, and showcased new-found guitar whiz Marc Ford. However, it was with "amorica." (If it appears "amorica." on the cover, why do people spell it otherwise?) that The Black Crowes fully realized their potential as a band. The result was the deepest, most soulful, amazing CD the Crowes have ever produced.
However, of course, critics at the time of its release panned it as nonsensical hippy rock, lacking the "fire" of "SYMM". If by "fire" they meant simple hooks and substance-free lyrics, "amorica." certainly lacked fire. The sound on "amorica." ranges back and forth from the trippy ("Gone") to the dark ("Cursed Diamond") to the uplifting ("She Gave Good Sunflower") to the simply beautiful ("Ballad In Urgency/Wiser Time"). The Crowes, on this album, sacrificed catchy hooks for musical diversity and beauty, and the result was lower sales, but a much higher CD-replay value.
Of course, the album didn't really lack fire. In fact, it was their most fiery album to date, in the emotional sense. The album is a flowing emotional journey, from "A Conspiracy"'s tainted love ("Be my conspiracy," a somewhat tongue-in-cheek way of saying that love isn't always great.

No, it didn't sell millions. No, it didn't have a nice, radio friendly hit exactly. But this album contains some of Chris Robinson's best lyrics... heck, some of the best lyrics EVER put on a rock and roll record! And Chris sings every note, every word with the right amount of sass or soul or lilt or power to get his point across. And the band delivers some of the best music it ever put to tape to help him do that. Drugs would destroy Marc Ford on the next record, but he shines on this one, along with Eddie Harsch's brilliant keyboards (the organ intro on "She Gave Good Sunflower" and the beautiful piano work on "Descending", he can do it all), Steve Gorman's driving drum work (don't kid yourself, he is to this band what Charlie Watts is to the Stones; listen to "Wiser Time": yes, he does that ALL live, too) and Johnny Colt's thundering bass. And the man who does all the rest, the Keith Richards to Chris' Jagger, the criminally under-rated Rich Robinson... lordy, lordy, lordy. What a BAND!
The songs veer a little between here and there. "Gone", "Conspiracy" and "High Head Blues" kick off the album with great sleazy giant guitar driven slabs (with a little Latin backbeat on "Gone" and "High Head"), then lad into the slower "Cursed Diamond" and sad, reflective acourstic "Non Fiction" (better that that "angels" song they play on the radio, both of them) then into the playful "Sunflower", the talk box driven "P.25 London", and the crowning point of the album, "Ballad In Urgency" which slides into "Wiser Time". These two songs are woth the price alone.
