5.0 out of 5 stars I'm in love June 28 2004
By TBone
Format:Audio CD
I am listening to this CD as I write this review...Have you ever just knew the minute you see something, or hear something, or smell something, that you would love it for the rest of your life? Do you remember your first kiss? Your first love? The first time you made love? Every major moment in life comes with it a memory..This album is a memory, of days gone by, of sitting on the porch at your Grandmother's in the summer eating homemade ice cream...There are no #1 hits on this disk, no radio friendly tunes, nothing the judges on "American Idle" would approve of...This album is God Damn artwotk...Put it in your CD player, push play, and live your life..This album reaches the depths of your soul and sings..It sings!! Jesus Christ reserved 11 songs in Heaven to committ to a Rock and Roll album..He put them on this CD..The Black Crowes were mere pawns, vehicles if you will...Misery, heartache, love gone bad, addictions, they are celebrated here, and how beautifully they are expressed..Poetry through music..How did an obscure band from Georgia do this? Sell their souls to the devil himself? IF that's the case, and I go to hell, all I ask is that I bring this CD with me..I won't bother reviewing the songs on this album...It's been done, I can only try and convey how this album moves me...If you don't get this record, it's totally your loss my friend..God bless Amorica...

5.0 out of 5 stars What Could Have Been May 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Before formal sessions for Amorica started, the Robinson brothers had planned another album called "Tall" that was totally scrapped. Some true gems for this buried album including "Title Song", "Bewildered", and "Exit" were recorded but still remain unreleased to this very day. The rest of the album consists of uninspired acoustic outtakes and bunch of throwaways. Imagine if the Crowes had released that record instead of the majesty that is Amorica? Granted the only songs taken from the Tall sessions that still remain intact are "She Gave Good Sunflower" and "Nonfiction." But if the band went ahead and released Tall, we would have never been graced with the sultry slide guitar of "Cursed Diamond" and "Descending," or the mindsplitting jams on "Gone" and "High Head Blues." The decision to write and record new songs ultimately paid off as it had previously with the Southern Harmony and Musical Compansion.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest of all time. (Really.) Nov. 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
I became a Black Crowes fan with Shake Your Moneymaker. I bought The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion and loved it. When I first bought Amorica, however, I couldn't really "get through" it for a long time... To put it bluntly, I thought it was a dud.
Years later, however, things are different. Time has a way of changing the musical landscape in order to reveal something about quality and emotion. Something, if you will, about the soul of a recording. As the years have passed, I have begun to find that the tracks on Amorica are the sountrack to my life. It was subtle at first... a vague idea that there was a track on Amorica that would suit a young man's road-trip somewhere in the urban plains... and so I skipped around until I found Wiser Time... later, the notion one night, walking home slightly inebriated, that there was some track that would really speak for my "heightened" mental state... and so I found Ballad in Urgency... then I fell in love and realized that Cursed Diamond was the soundtrack to my smile... Descending... A Conspiracy... She Gave Good Sunflower... every damn track on this disc is a classic. Not just great, like the tracks on The Southern Harmony... but a sleeping *classic*, like Gimme Shelter, like Hey Jude. Every damn Amorica track is a classic of Rock and Roll, destined to be listened to for generations, like others before them.
And so, years later, every last damn track on Amorica is one of my favorite musical tracks of all time. I can't live without this disc. Yes, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion is tight and probably more "lively"... but Amorica is more real, more beautiful, more deep, more in tune with (as Chris once said in an interview), "The Song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amorica is a wonderful country. June 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
I wasnt exactly blown away by this album when I first got a hold of it. To me, it seemed to be step down from their masterpiece, the near flawless swagger of 'The Sothern harmony and Musical Comapanion'. Amorica, however, had other plans for me. This is the kind of album you are constantly drawn back to: it is endearing and mystifying,consistently shedding its layers and revealing its secrets to the listeners in a way 'Southern Harmony' never did. Where 'Southern Harmony' is focused, Amorica sprawls, and where it has melody and hooks galore, Amorica is a gradual process, inspiring delight when its true nature is revealed. And what a place to be Amorica is.'A Conspiracy' is the most immediate track here: sharp and brutal,with a gentle,pleading chorus, the track reminds us the Crowes can bludgeon with the best of them. 'High head blues' and 'She gave good sunflower' continue the southern tinged, unabashed hard rock assault. Later, however, we are treated to a hint of where the Black Crowes were to go next: the stunning double impact of the balllads 'Ballad in urgency' and the sublime 'Wiser time', which still stands as one of their best songs. What makes Amorica stand out, though, is its effective blend of experimentation and standard Crowes rock numbers, allowing the band to branch out without losing sight of their roots. 'Gone' is surprising opener, all lo-fi chords and funky beats, gardually bulding to an almost out of place chorus. 'Nonfiction' and 'P-25 London' spound like nothing they've done before or since- here are the tracks that grow and perplex, intrigue and delight. Taking the time and money to listen to them is very rewarding, but the album as a whole is uniformly strong material. Read more ›
