Product Description

Amazon.ca

"Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown," sings Chris Robinson, and the vibrant, roaring music on Lions supports his claim to rule the jungle. Working with producer Don Was, the Black Crowes make bold sonic leaps forward, sounding both heavier and more nuanced simultaneously. In the mid-1990s, the Crowes' attempts at experimentation were much less successful, often sounding forced, or worse--underdeveloped. With 1999's By Your Side, the band seemed to make a conscious attempt to strip it all down and get back to basics. Lions continues that resurgence and thanks to Was's influence, builds mightily on that foundation. The good-time swampy swagger is still the defining factor but for the first time the sonic colouring enhances the tunes as opposed to sapping them of their energy. All the songs flow together, giving the album a cohesion that previous efforts have lacked, and Was generates a bold, vivid sound. And yes, it does seem quite conducive to loud volumes. --Marc Greilsamer

"Soul Singing, Miracle To Me, Lickin, Midnight From the Inside Out, Cypress Tree" are all GREAT classic Rock and Roll with a little Soul tracks. This CD is one that you will never put down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crowes become FUN! June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
You might hear complaints about selling out or glossy production effects, but in a weird way, this might be the Crowes best album. The rudimentary Faces/Stones-like sound of the first album is gone and so is the languid Allman-esque jamming of the later albums. This has ben replaced by a sort of Zepplin meets "Fresh"-era Sly Stone approach with vintage 70's metallic riffs which are balanced by a very funky beat. There's also Stax/Motown horns, female back-up singer choruses, cartoony P-Funk refrains and Chris Robinsons best vocals ever (he's actually learned to harness his already amazing voice). This record is much more focused than previous attempts with really modern sounding production and some very tight pop sounding tunes. If this isn't their best record, it is definitely their most interesting and most fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crowes Swan Song?? Dec 28 2003
By Train
Format:Audio CD
If this is to be the last album the Black Crowes ever put out, I will say they went out on a very high note. Being a fan of the Crowes, I want to like everything they put out, and I have until By Your Side came out. I just cound not get into that album. It wasnt a BAD disc I guess, but it is one I never listen to now, as opposed to all of the Black Crowes past efforts, which I listen to often. To me, Lions has a sound that is closer to Amorica then any of their other past albums. It is down and dirty rock and roll at its best. Some have said that playing live with Jimmy Page lit a fire back under the Crowes, and I tend to agree with that. From the first time I played this disc, I likes it. Hell, from the opening riff off Midnight... I liked this disc. While the Black Crowes may no longer be around, they certanly left a body of work to be proud of, and Lions is,in my opinion, their second best album, after Amorica.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Send Off July 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
If this is indeed to be "The Crowes" last album, it's a good note to go out on. The entire band seems very at ease and you can tell. "Midnight From The Inside" has Rich Robinson's guitar fuzzed out to the max and sounds like an actual live take(I think it was). "Lickin'" is the catchiest song here, sounding like Skynyrd at their sleaziest, with Chris Robinson rasping where he never has before. The mellow numbers are where the Robinson Bros. really shine. The gospel sound of "Soul Singing" and the weepy "Miracle To Me" recall Zeppelin in their prime, without just retracing steps. Of course, when The Black Crowes are involved, they real question is "Can't we all just get along?" If only they could...

The Black Crowes know how to make real rock and roll... Not the stuff that the MTV cartel cooks up to sell to the gullible kiddies, but real, good, old-fashioned Zep/Stones/Beatles we-will-make-the-music-cum-what-may tracks. You know... Rock and Roll!
This diverse release plays well from front to back. It's raw and loose and beautiful and will have you all over the map. From an opener that recalls the classic Crowes blues-rock from albums past to toe-tapping, can't-stop-smiling tunes like Soul Singing and Ozone Mama to extended jam-and-reflect-on-life tracks like Miracle to Me and Lay It All On Me, every track on this album is pure sugar.
If you play Exile on Main Street and Physical Graffiti from front to back and love every minute of them, then this disc is for you. If on the other hand you enjoyed "Kickin My Heart Around" and are looking for similar singles, you might want to look into earlier Crowes albums, especially "Shake Your Money Maker," because Lions just isn't a singles-oriented disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BLACK CROWES' MIGHTY ROAR! Jan. 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Lions" is perhaps the Crowes strongest effort since "the Southern Harmony & Musical Companion." In my opinion, it is the Crowes' best yet! Instead of the band doing a retro sound of their own past, the Crowes move full force ahead, creating fine melody & music, ignoring what the masses expect to hear, as well as those old flames still stuck on the sound of "Shake Your Moneymaker." This album is for the fans & for anyone who appreciates good ROCK music. Any devoted Crowe fan might respect the fact that the band has kept its loyalty in not selling out & still remain as clever in their riffs as their debut. No..."Lions" is not a sell-out effort by the Crowes. The proof? Listen to how much air play this fabulous album has received! Thank-you media for preserving this gem. In the lack of radio overplay (thank-god), every listen to this album remains as fresh as the last, from the hard-rocking intro, "Midnight from the Inside Out," to the melodic-rich ballad of "Losing My Mind" (a must hit repeat on the CD player!). There is not a song skipper on this album, which is rare these days. The sample sound clips available on Amazon are just a taste of perhaps the best "rock" album of the decade. The Robinson brothers do it again!
