Not enough can be said about the Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (an apt title). But I'll try. This is the album the Rolling Stones wish they could have made, during their Southern/Country excursions -- not to knock the Stones at all, this album just rocks. Somewhere on the Family Tree of Rock, there's a branch that ends with this exquisite flower of an album. Any time I see a magazine or whatever with the "Top 100" rock albums, if the SHaMC isn't in the Top 20, that list is garbage.
Throughout the tracks, the Crowes reach full groove -- filling all the sonic space. The musicianship is awesome and it's clear the band was enjoying this time in the studio. Chris Robinson's energy is at typical peak, and I find his singing is filled with immense warmth and passion, ironic considering almost all of the lyrics appear to be bitter jabs (a' la Dylan) against a former lover. After years of returning to this one, it's clear it meets the ultimate test of Album Rock, which is improvement over time, like a fine wine.

A little less concise than the Black Crowes' excellent debut album, "The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion" doesn't feature quite as many obvious singles as its predecessor.
It's still a pretty good album, though.
Opening with the gritty hard rock of "Sting Me", "Harmony" mixes Rolling Stones-like rockers with Faces-like ballads, and while the production is often too dense and messy and, well, grunge-like (ew!), most of the songs hold up quite well.
The two best-selling singles off "Harmony" ("Remedy" and the ballad "Thorn In My Pride") were only minor Billboard hits, and none of them cracked the top 40, but the album itself debuted at #1, and that's a pretty good picture of "Harmony". It's a solid album with very few bad songs, although if truth be told there aren't too many truly excellent ones, either.
"Harmony" is not an album filled with hits, and overall it doesn't hold up quite as well as 1990's well-crafted "$hake Your Moneymaker". But it is still better than what the Crowes have been putting out since the mid-90s.
3½ stars.

Certainly a strong contender for their best. Not a bad apple in the bunch. But for me, "Sometime Salvation" alone is worth the price of admission. It's gripping, powerful and incredibly soulful. I love the stop-start tug of the guitars. Chris Robinson is positively gut-wrenching when he sings lines like, "You can lead a horse to water/ But faith is another matter." This song just rips my soul.
In truth, I could gush about any of these songs and they fit together really well, too. There's a running theme of dealing with addiction and related relationships. From the confusion of mixed feelings and the double-edged message in the opener "Sting Me" to the redemption of the Zeppelinesque electric slide of "My Morning Song," this is a completely cohesive, compelling album.
The last song is actually a faithful and soulful cover of Bob Marley's "Time Will Tell" with its poignant lyric, "Think you're in heaven but you're living in hell."
This is ("was" I guess I should say) a top-notch band that played old-school rock with their own modern sensibilities. Even the backup singers on this album are outstanding. I'm here to tell ya, these guys are very, very good.

A little Humble Pie, a little J Geils Band and a lot of black southern gospel and blues roots is the foundation for the Black Crowes. But this band sounds way too authentic to simply have found the perfect hybrid formula for their sound. These boys are the Real McCoy.
The Black Crowes burst onto the music scene in the late 80s with "Shake Your Money Maker" and its first hit release "Hard to Handle," a blues original by Otis Redding. That tune was impossible to ignore on its own merit, but being that it was released when techno pop, video starlets, and big hair bands ruled the air waves, this hit from the raw and raunchy southern white boys stuck out like a sore thumb. The Black Crowes most audibly earned their seat in the genre of Southern Rock and raised the bar for all other applicants since.
The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion is their second offering, originally released in 1992 and digitally remastered ten years later. Many artists as a rule suffer from sophomore slump, but the Black Crowes didn't make this mistake. In fact, their second release totally smoked the first one, IMO. The energy level, the songwriting, the playing, the production, all of it comes together to make for one of the most solid kick-ass record releases of the 90s.
There was the usual rumor swirling around the Crowes-talk of drugs, booze, movie star wives and girlfriends. And what was that thing between the Crowes and fellow Georgia homeboys, Third Day? Christian alternative band Third Day tipped their hat to the Crowes' influence on their tune Black Bird. What was that about? Perhaps we'll never know, but I found this particularly intriguing, seeing how one rarely hears Christian bands acknowledging musical influence from anything worldly.
