I just bought this album. I was watching Entourage and at the very end they played Can't Keep No Good Boy Down. I had to have it!( This is the first time I have ever bought an album after just hearing part of a song on TV) The lead singer sounds a lot like Shannon Hoon (Blind Melon) and that is not a bad thing. To me the sound like a mix of Blind Melon and Led Zepplin. Best new band I have heard in awhile.

I first came across New Jersey rockers The Parlor Mob when I heard "Carnival of Crows" on a label sampler CD. That song had me scrambling to find a copy of their 2008 debut album And You Were a Crow. There aren't a lot of bands that can sound both retro and modern at the same time, but The Parlor Mob is one of those bands.

The Parlor Mob is like Wolfmother without the Sabbath-style doom riffage, which is to say they sound an awful lot like Led Zeppelin. I also hear a bit of the Stones, Captain Beyond and Deep Purple in The Parlor Mob's memorable sound. They burn through heavy rockers ("Real Hard Headed", "Bullet"), slower, bluesier numbers (the 8-minute, so Zeppelin it hurts "Tide of Tears") and more upbeat, radio-ready singles ("Carnival of Crows") with real heart and soul. The use of harmonica and organ give the album an even more retro feel, but it's the band's overall energy that keeps everything sounding modern and completely relevant. There's just something fascinating and unique at work here that I haven't really experienced since the late, lamented Mother Love Bone.

And You Were a Crow is an extremely well-executed album that should please fans of both classic and modern rock. If bands like The Parlor Mob represent the future of rock & roll (and by God they should), we're in good hands.

Let's just imagine Led Zeppelin 3 became a living,breathing organism.The result would be The Parlor Mob and this amazing CD.Easily the song of the year with "Everything You're Breathing For",a timeless song that needs to be played by all rock stations everywhere.I'm not the best reviewer ,but this CD is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend it.

In terms of pure rock and roll, I haven't heard a band this good since the first time I heard Zeppelin. I hope these guys stick around for a long, long time.

This band is sweet, I got their album on i-tunes a couple weeks ago and it's still in my car CD player right now. I just saw them live last weekend and they blew the other 4 bands away, they're very talented.
They sound like Led Zeppelin mixed with Rush and Deep Purple, but with a modern edge and their own sound. And the lead vocalist can hit some serious notes. Nice variety of sounds and song structures, if you know something about music you'll love this band! Can't believe I haven't heard them anywhere but on the indy-rock station, check em out!

The Parlor Mob hail from New Jersey and this is their debut album. These guys mine a somewhat retro take on modern hard rock with Led Zeppelin being an obvious influence. This is a really great album full of wailing vocals, twin lead guitar and heavy drums and bass. Highlights include "Hard Times", "When I Was An Orphan", "Tide Of Tears" and the album closer "Can't Keep A Good Boy Down". I think that these guys have a very bright future in front of them

The Parlor Mob are a young band influenced by classic rock but they still manage to have an original sound on most of their songs. The classic rock influences are pretty obvious, but most of the time it doesn't sound like they're trying to copy one particular band. Most of this CD is great and the rest is really good. There aren't any weak tracks on here. My favorites are "Everything You're Breathing For",a mid tempo song with a fast guitar solo. It's the best new song I've heard this year. "Can't Keep No Good Boy Down",a folksy,acoustic song,and the first official video from the CD."Bullet",a headbanger that makes me think of Black Sabbath. "My Favorite Heart To Break",a mid tempo power ballad type song. "Tide Of Tears",a Led Zeppelin style blues song. "When I Was An Orphan",an interesting ballad that speeds up at the end, and "Real Hard Headed",an old fashioned hard rocker. The five other tracks are a quiet ballad,"Angry Young Girl", and four fast hard rock songs that have a more modern sound. This band isn't just for classic rock fans, they sound a little like Rage Against The Machine and The White Stripes, but if you like classic rock bands and retro sounding bands like Black Stone Cherry and Wolfmother, you should like The Parlor Mob.

It took me a while to get into these guys, but my god they're amazing. They've got the sound and image of a typical modern day wanna-be Led Zeppelin band, but they are actually incredible song-writers, and can almost be considered prog. There's a few of the usual hard blues rockin' songs, which are awesome, but songs like "When I Was an Orphan" and "Tide of Tears" (an 8+ minute extremely dynamic track) totally make the record and show the ability of these guys. My personal favorite is "Bullet", which has a nice tradeoff of odd time signatures and an unexpected intense mid-section. The closer "Can't Keep No Good Boy Down" is such a fun song, and with have you either singing or tapping to it before it's over. Also, if you can sing along to the entire album through without losing your voice, props to you.

Seriously, you should check these guys out.

I still listen to this album almost every day, and in no way am I tired of it. I recently bought the vinyl, and I had to update this to review it. Basically, if you own a turntable, BUY THE LP!!! The production is so much better. The CD is mastered pretty damn loud with a lot of clipping on the drums. On the vinyl every thing is much more clearer and breathes so much better. Plus, there's the short bonus track "Mister, Hey Mister", which is awesome. Buying vinyl today for most bands is pointless, since everything's far too compressed and clipped to make any difference. This album is the exception. This was made for vinyl!
