Product Description

Ori. Release '02. Debut solo album by the former Black Crowes frontman. Includes a bonus DVD - A Documentary Film By Darren Ankenman & Live Acoustic Performances.

Amazon.com

Former Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson quickly stakes out his own turf on his solo debut, frequently eschewing his familiar rock rasp for a simpler, neo-folkie delivery. Tracks like the soulful "Fables," the haunting "Katie Dear," and infectious "Silver Car" most effectively navigate a new path. But ironically, Robinson's deliberate distancing from the Crowes' excesses paints him into problematic corners. The laid-back country jones he exhibits on "Sunday Sound" and "Barefoot by the Cherry Tree" often gets the best of him, while the spare, promising folk-rock of "Could You Really Love Me?" degenerates into familiar Robinson tent-revival vocal territory. If "Ride"'s funky corners and Robinson's general willingness to experiment show promise, they also suggest the singer's talents need a little competitive goosing, a reinforcement the decades-old truism that the greatest rock music is often the byproduct of the fiercest rivalries and infighting. --Jerry McCulley

Chris Robinson's New Earth Mud is the sound of a musician who's happy to be doing his own thing. A musician who has settled into a comfortable life and is enjoying time with his true love. These are the feelings that pervade the album, and make it more of a laid-back affair. I think comparing it to John Lennon's "Double Fantasy" would be a valid comparison, as it has that sort of "joy of life and love" feel to it. However, on this album we are thankfully spared songs by the singer's significant other, although I'm sure Kate Hudson is probably a much better singer than Yoko Ono.
Mellow is the key word to this CD. It's not hard-rocking like The Black Crowes, it's more subtle with the emphasis on songwriting and the feel-good vibe. Musically, the album could be compared to the likes of Tom Petty's "Wildflowers", The Grateful Dead's "American Beauty" or Neil Young's "Harvest". That's sort of the sound that we get here. Mid-tempo songs performed mostly on acoustic guitars, with a touch of folk and country influence. There's a bit of instrumental jamming, which just adds to the retro feel of the disc.
I think this is a fine album. It might not appeal to all fans of The Black Crowes, but it's a good one to put on when you're feeling mellow and just want something soothing, but with a good groove to listen to.

This cd is an eye opener. Chris Robinson is now a solo artist, and an important one at that. Make no mistake: New Earth Mud is a major achievement.

I have been a Black Crowes fan for over a decade, and have more than anything, enjoyed the Crowes live and acoustic (anyone ever heard the Black and Blue bootleg?). This solo album captures that raw smoke and whiskey feeling, balanced by coffee and cigarette mornings after. Chris writes wonderful songs. Stories. Digs deep and drags you down there with him ... into the New Earth Mud.

But his voice. He is so versatile ... quietly evocative in one instance, grittily aggressive in another. Chris sings with restraint here mostly, but it seems effortless. Couple that with great bare-bones production and wonderful ensemble musicianship and you have one of the best albums I have heard in the last 15 years.

When's the next one coming Chris?

The Crowes are the greatest band that ever were, but i pay no attention to anything - other than some rumblings a year or so ago, had no idea this was coming out, so it was a wonderful surprise, although looking at the song titles before i heard it, "Katie Dear" kinda filled me with dread,(actually a fragile little dewy spider web on an autumn morning of a song) but turns out it was unjustified. A fewpoints:
-It doesn't SOUND like the Crowes, but its Chris expressing himself, which he's a good at, so if you love the crowes deep down, than you'll love this too. The first song is the maybe the Crowes-iest thing here - a deep fried riff - put that guitar on yo hip boy! First listen reminded me in places of the By Your Side bsides
-Interesting people involved - one of the Stone temple Pilots, some guy I never heard of who is the most involved and comes off as a good guy who I'd be interested to know more about, The enigma that is Eddie Harsch (hurrah) oh and the greatest guitarist it's ever ben my pleasure to stand infront of slack jawed - MARC FORD! hell YEAH!
-Really nicely arranged - weird organs, moogs, only some dodgy Nick Drake sounding Saxophone on Untangle my Mind is a little jarring
-Good to excellent lyrics throughout. Not as bad as they have been (listening to the missing songs of the crowes career on Tall As Can Be it seems that it was often the quality of lyrics that dicated if a song made it onto the records - when Our Hero writes bad lyrics he really writes bad lyrics, but when he's good it's poetry pure and simple and bests Dylan) Somewhere between Wiser Time and Heavy all in all.

This is a great album. It is more mellow than what Chris did with the Crowes, but I'm totally fine with that. It's the kind of album that sounds good on a warm summer day, or a cold winter one. It would be a good thing to play along with the Dead, or some of Neil Young's more acoustic stuff. The first song "Safe in the arms of love" is a great start. Another good "Crowes-ish" song is "Sunday Sound". The love song to Kate, "Katie Dear", is a bit sappy, but still good. And the song "Fables" has an almost magical feel to it. The DVD is alright. It has 4 more audio tracks and a short documentary. Not bad, but the kind of thing you'll probably watch twice at most. I highly recommend this and think it's great that Chris seems to be doing what he wants, on his terms, and having fun with it.

well, i turned 30 this past year and i thought my love for good music was just a phase i went through, or something that is reserved for people younger than me. i remember when i was in my teens, i would buy an album and listen nonstop for days & days. i hadn't done that in a while, until i bought this album. i now realize there just hasn't been any good music since before the grunge days. i had only heard "safe in the arms of love" when i purchased it. i thought it was a really decent song, and i was so desperate for some new music that was listenable i took a chance and bought the album. man, was this the right decision! i can't take it out of my car stereo. the rest of the songs don't really sound like "safe". but they are the best songs i have heard in years. i like the album so well that this is the first review that i felt like i should write. other people are saying you would have to either like or dislike the black crowes to apprieciate this album. i don't agree. i was a big fan of the first two crowes albums, but i couldn't name a song on their later ones. heres how i would explain it: if you deeply love music, but you think 99% of the stuff on the radio nowadays is garbage, this album is for you!
