Good old rock and roll
on August 8, 2014
Upon first listening to the Black Crowes decades ago, there was no denying that the band possessed a sound that hearkened to the raw power and energy of basic rock and roll and rhythm and blues reminiscent to artists and bands of the early 1970s, such as early Rod Stewart, the Faces, and Rolling Stones and a tinge of early Aerosmith but with a 90’s twist.. Their first single “Jealous Again” carried that style from the rolling opening guitar chords and riffs and Chris Robinson’s raspy vocals. From there on, the band refined its sound and as one listens to each of the songs in the collection, one word comes to mind -- timeless.
Greatest Hits 1990-1999: A Tribute to a Work in Progress... has the bands most popular hits and more. In addition to “Jealous,” the songs thereafter “Twice as Hard,” the bluesy and danceable “Hard to Handle,” the beautiful “She Talks to Angels” and the backing choir adds a nice touch, “Remedy,” are the most unforgettable tracks up to the last track “By Your Side.” For first time or long time fans of the Black Crowes this is an exceptional and essential collection of songs. And this is one of those albums that may be best listened to while driving in the car with the windows rolled down and the volume turned up.
