Editorial Reviews

Socrates said that a life unexamined was not worth living, but sometimes life is going so well that you could forgive one for just going with the flow. But life will catch up with you in time, as it did for Rich Robinson. Before he was 25, he had fame as the guitar player for the Black Crowes, fortune, a beautiful wife and home; seemingly, he had it all. But in the blink of an eye, much of it was gone. How he managed to make it through with graciousness and his sense of self-intact is examined on his new solo album, Through A Crooked Sun.

This album sounds like it could have been the Crowes next album.

I highly recommend to anyone who likes the Crowes, but more than that, anyone who loves good music!

I then realized what a truly deep and rich album this is emotionally and sonically.

"Rich Robinson continues his quest to create the next Nick Drake album... and this time he's closer than he's ever been."

Every time the Black Crowes go on hiatus, we get the "parts" of Rich and Chris doing solo ventures. Though the sum of those parts(TBC) is always better than either brother solo, of the two brother's Rich's solo albums and tours are (for this TBC and Robinson brother fan) a greater treat. You never know where Rich is going to go with a solo song because the canvas that he's working on is so big - its very much the Black Crowes catalog mixed with a healthy dose of the unimaginably large personal music catalog Rich and his brother must have and know by heart. At one moment he could be channeling Jimmy Page, then he's more Stephen Stills, then you are sure its the Grease Band, but before you know it he's entered uncharted territory. His is music by a music lover, and he has mastered the art of pulling "that sound" that worked so well on that obscure record and making it something new and alive. Every time I listen to Rich Robinson music, I wonder: "How many thousands of obscure records do Rich and Chris have?"

Rich's first solo studio album (Paper) hit all the right notes, but a number of the songs seemed to drag a bit. Beyond that, the freshman effort featured Rich's first real attempt at singing, and the album as a whole really only had two textures to it (lovely acoustic Rich and full throttle electric Rich). It felt like Rich and a bunch of cool guitars spent a few days in the studio with a drummer, producing a less than organic sound, but delivering big time in riffs and rock. That reality made Paper a great start and showed the potential that Rich had as a solo artist.

Rich Robinson's "Through A Crooked Sun" is worth the buy...go get it!!! This album shows you where the Black Crowes got their funky, trippy sound from. The songs lead from lows to highs...the overall feel is laid-back yet it rocks out at times. "Its Not Easy" has this really cool, funky '70s groove to it...very solid song. Then "I Don't Hear the Sound of You" starts very mellow and laid-back and then morphs into this jazz/swing kinda thing...didn't see that coming, but it is brilliant!! I'm not trying to give you a song by song review here...I'm sure someone more ambitious than I will do that...and frankly, I want to get back to listening to this CD again. One thing I will add, vocally, Rich doesn't have the pipes his brother does. However, his vocals are strong and works well for his songs. Trust me...buy the CD, it is a cool journey through a crooked sun!

I like the Black Crowes a lot, and am happy to hear Rich Robinson's continued growth as a guitarist-singer-songwriter. He's delivered a gritty , tuneful album that -at times-reminds me of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac , Traffic, Neil Young, etc. All in all, a great listen -and, having had this cd for some time now, it has become one of my favorite releases of 2011 . The Soiled Dove ( Denver ) show was fantastic - what an incredible live band !!!

Honestly, I dont love every song, but the other 8 or 9 songs on this album I absolutely love. Phenomenal album. I highly recommend to anyone who likes the Crowes, but more than that, anyone who loves good music! Very good songwriting, and the cover Station Man is just awesome. I have had the album since it came out a couple weeks ago and every time I get into my car its like its brand new to me again. So dang good, nice work Mr. Robinson. Keep it up! I'll be at your next show!

Rich sounds excellent on this album! His voice is at its best ever and his riffs are as strong as ever. I enjoyed all of the songs upon first listen, but, as I gave it more spins, each and every one grew on me even more. I then realized what a truly deep and rich album this is emotionally and sonically. Very direct and open songs. Some rock, others jam and some are mellow. All of the musicianship is top notch. I highly recommend this album, just don't short-change it by expecting a Black Crowes record or by only giving it a few listens - it is indeed exceptional.

This much overlooked recording flows over the musical palette like a fine, neat, and well aged single-malt Scotch. Delighting the senses, warming the soul and challenging tastes.

Format: Audio CD
This album was easily in my top three albums of 2011. Possibly top two. It hasn't ventured far from my stereo since buying it last November. It's much more accomplished than its predecessor, 'Paper'. The songs are all top notch. Well written and fantastically played and Rich seems much more comfortable with his voice on this one. The music is like a mixture of early 70's hard, funk rock, thick southern boogie jams and a dash of psychedelia thrown in for good measure. Very, very tasty, indeed.

I also had the pleasure to see Rich last November (2011) in Portland and he blew me away. Having seen the Crowes several times it seems that this hiatus the band are taking is proving very productive for both Robinson's. Chris' side project, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood is also well worth investigating. I just hope they continue to tour. Good, honest rock is what I always look for and on this one Rich has struck gold. Enjoy!
