People often point to The Black Crowes' debut as their best record, but this is truly the definitive Black Crowes album. It's everything Shake Your Money Maker is and more, with small upgrades made in several places that take their southern blues rock sound to new heights. Female vocals sing beautiful harmonies, harmonicas and keyboards play wonderful lines, and pianos add soul to the whole concoction. The album ends with four straight classics in the gritty combo of "Black Moon Creeping" and "No Speak No Slave", which segue into the wondrous romp that is "My Morning Song", ending with the beautifully made cover of Bob Marley's "Time Will Tell". Sure, it's still the Robinson brothers' show, but this time around the music is not nearly as dependent on those two as before. That being said, they too arguably turn in their best performances here, making this record a collection of the best that The Black Crowes have to offer, and a cornerstone of 90's hard rock.
