5.0 out of 5 stars Angels and devils smile down deep inside, July 29, 2008
This review is from: Southern Harmony & Musical Companion (Audio CD)
When The Crowes hired guitarist Marc Ford just before this albulm was recorded, they gave him something like 30 songs to learn, but when he showed up for the first day of sessions, lo and behold, he found that Chris and Rich had scrapped all those songs an had rewritten the whole album in two weekends. They proceeded to record the entire deal in eight days, and after some aggrivating attempts at mixing, Chris took the album home and "hot mixed" it in one night.

Four days writing, eight days recording, and one all night mix. THIS is what rock is all about. The finished product is a masterpiece, and all in a fortnight.

Rather than rehashing which songs are which, it is better to point out the fact that this is a heavily themed album. There are stings, thorns, illness and bad luck, but there are also remedies, harmony and salvation. This album cuts to the core of life, where everything can seem to be right, yet still falls apart, and where perspective is maintained and salvation is found. As they quote Bob M, "Think you're in Heaven, but you're livin' in Hell"

When baby bands come out with their sophmore effort, it often falls flat (to put it mildly), but the Crowes were in their finest form on this one, proving that the "Stones Clones" can in fact forge their own way. Although I am a massive fan of the '67-72 Stones, I challange anyone to find Mick singing the blues better than Chris on "Bad Luck, Blue Eyes Goodbye", or injecting more venom than is on "No Speak No Slave". Well, Mick's venom is pretty thick on "Turd On The Run" I'll admit. But I digress...

This gospel tinged diamond of rock and roll has lived up to its name better than any other album in my life. In the last twelve years it has certainly been by best 'companion'.
Do yourself a favor and get yourself a new best friend with "Harmony". If you have a soul, "My Morning Song" will change your life.

If I could give it six stars, I wouldn't hesitate.

Exactly.
Great review and my sentiment exactly.
It has been in my cd player for months.
And - an outstanding companion while touring cannabis collectives in No. Cal.

A great, great piece of work.
