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

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. The Crowes' best since "Amorica". May 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Lions, the Black Crowes' 6th album, ranks up there among their best. After releasing three wonderful studio albums in the early 90's, "Shake Your Money Maker" (1990), "The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion" (1992) and Amorica (1994), the Crowes released two lesser albums. The uneven, experimental "Three Snakes and One Charm" (1996) and the hard-rocking but not entirely satisfying "By Your Side" (1999). Now, however, the Crowes have returned to form with a wonderful release "Lions". It sounds different at first listen, than what you'd expect, but the Crowes' distinct style is very much audible. "Lions" takes a few listens to really get into, so don't be turned off on the first listen. You must give it a chance. I wasn't crazy about the album on the first listen, but loved it on the second. The songs flow into one another with true cohesion and the album manages to be inventive yet hard-rocking at the same time. Take the second track, Lickin' for example. It starts out with an odd guitar riff, but soon turns into a tasty hard rocker. Overall, Lions is a great album that demands several listens to really appreciate, as many truly great records do.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOTTS Feb. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
Chris and Rick Robinson of the Black Crowes have never been shy of wearing their hearts on their Rock ´¿n´¿ Roll sleeves proudly showing off their influences. The Rolling Stones (Keith not Mick), The Faces (Ronnie Wood not Rod Stewart), Humble Pie (Steve Marriot not Peter Frampton), and now after touring the states with Jimmy Page they have released Lions with a heavy Led Zeppelin Presence era feel to it.

It may be clich├ęd, but for the Black Crowes it really has been a long strange trip. They completely startled the world with their 1990 debut ´¿Shake your Money Maker´¿, and now in 2001 it looks like they are going to do it again with ´¿Lions´¿. In the years in between they have released 4 very varied albums, both in critical acclaim and sales. They have been kicked off a worldwide tour with ZZ Top for not towing the Budweiser sponsorship line. Their story has ranged from the ridicules to the sublime, heady and dangerous, a line up of changing musician that would make Spinal Tap look stable, and sometimes thrillingly out of control. Musically it´¿s been peaks and troughs, but ´¿Lions´¿ finds them on the very crest of a wave.

On the opening track ´¿Midnight from the inside out´¿ Chris Robinson blares forth after the guitar feedback locks into a guitar chugging rhythm with an opening salvo of ´¿Here where angels never sleep / The water´¿s dark and deep / and you breath molasses´¿. The effect is excruciating, clammy, sweaty, exhilarating - all rolled into one. It sounds like Walking Street should do at midnight.

For it´¿s part in the proceedings, ´¿Lions´¿ is a wholly remarkable C.
