4 classic Crowes songs here. A great place to start if you want to get into the Black Crowes.

From: Cruise Date: March 6, 2004 at 19:58
This is a cool CD of laid back, blues based rock n' roll. Heavily influenced by the Stones but it still has a lot of it's own charm.

From: JapLance Date: March 7, 2004 at 17:01

From: AOR freaky Date: March 8, 2004 at 4:52
I keep it short : one of the biggest CRAP acts and CD's EVER !!!! I understand Koogles : just as most southern acts, this band don't belong on these pages ! Next step : Michael Jackson (after all Eddie Van Halen played some solo's on his Thriller record !) !

Awesome album of blues-drenched rock 'n' roll with great hooks throughout. This and 'Southern Harmony' are probably my two favorites by them. Also love the stuff they did with Jimmy Page. Just a great all-around band.

From: Aero Force Mike Date: March 31, 2004 at 4:57
Funny, you can have Blackeyed Susan and the Quireboys on the site and no one complains... then you place a band on here who sound EXACTLY the same, but the only difference is they had more success outside of the 80s rock scene and suddenly people start whining that it shouldn't be here. ANYWAY, this is a great album, my favorite of theirs, but my pick for top track is actually the bonus track of Don't Wake Me: 100804c350ure Aerosmith!

From: AOR freaky Date: March 31, 2004 at 5:45
CRAP all the way !!! AVOID !!! This is pure rock 'n roll nonsense. CRAP ! CRAP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: T-Bone Date: March 31, 2004 at 7:00
Rock N'Roll Nonsense?!?!?! This was a nice breath of fresh air back when it came out. You can't help but tap your foot to Twice As Hard, Jealous Again, and Hard To Handle when they came on the radio. I didn't care too much for their other releases except for the song Stop Kicking My Heart Around. I'd have to say this was somewhat a classic in it's time. It still stands up well to new releases as well.

From: Rockhead Date: March 31, 2004 at 8:23
Freaky-please stop commenting on Cd's you dont like!! If a Cd is bad say why-dont keep saying crap, shit or whatever with no reasoning-it makes you look an idiot!! Production is great, performances are high and the songs on this Cd are basic Rock'n'Roll. Hard to Handle, Twice as hard etc are great songs with lots of soul. If you like Blues, RocknRoll, Country, Southern timged rock theres somthing here for you.

From: GlenRavine Date: March 31, 2004 at 11:00
By far their best - actually one of the better ones. Straight ahead southern rock with a little blues twist. Very good DISC. Great live band.

From: MJ (Marla) Date: March 31, 2004 at 11:23
'Hard To Handle' .... one of my all time favorite songs...EVER!!! LOL....WHAT a line....'Hey little thing let me light your candle, cause Mama I'm sure hard to handle'!!!!! 'She Talks To Angels'....just beautiful!!! Can't help but sing along to 'Jealous Again'.. GREAT memories with this one!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: April 1, 2004 at 7:47
Rockhead, if you have the right to write down Pride Of Lions or Norway, why shouldn't I have the right to destroy this CRAP record ? ! Motivations for this : no singer, no musianship, crap songs etc. Need I to go on ?! This is the kind of bagger I HATE big way ! And if I see who likes this rubbish (MJ(Marla), Cruise, Blue Charvel, T-Bone and you), then I know I'm right, because all people without a decent taste like this, right ! ? So, don't comment on my comments ? Who do you think you are ?

From: T-Bone Date: April 1, 2004 at 7:57
Please Please Please oh Master Freaky...come over to the Message Boards and enlighten us with your wisdom. We have a special board made just for you, but you never show up. You're the guest of honor.

Freaky-What is a Bagger? If I criticise a Cd I at least follow it up with a valid reason (poor production, etc) to just say crap shows ignorance. My comments were to try and get you to see how many people your inane dribblings annoy. You are an idiot!! My tastes are actually similar to that of your own (see the same Cd's we have both commented on) you are too stupid to see this-by saying my musical taste is bad-you are by default saying your taste is also poor-what a fuckwit you are

From: Rockhead Date: April 1, 2004 at 9:31
Cont... If you actually added anything of any literary value, then and only then can you criticise me or MJ, T-Bone, Blue Charvel etc. Your ignorance is only outweighed by your pidgeon English. With regard to the production on the Norway cd(my biggest problem with the disc) being piss poor-is that not a valid point? Pride of Lions is not an awful cd but it IS a bit bland for my tastes-again a valid point.

From: CC Date: May 12, 2004 at 21:23
Freaky,you consistantly use the word "classic" for bands that are obviously not yet you overlook a band that does truly follow a "classic" vein. The Crowes sound is straight out of the book of "classic" rock written by The Rolling Stones & Small Faces amongst others,and anyone who says those two bands aint "classic" is a "classic" arsehole if ya ask me! This album might not be original,but it was a breath of fesh air when it came out,a case of getting back to basics!

From: Uncle Salty Date: May 22, 2004 at 10:05
Freaky you suck, this band is along with GNR the best band the world has got the pleasure to hear on these last 10 years. I love all their albums.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 12, 2004 at 23:13
Kind of odd to see The Black Crowes on this page, but this is a pretty rocking album in places. Favorite track is Twice As Hard, but all the hits are good and the filler is not bad at all. 8/10

From: Desslar Date: June 13, 2004 at 21:36
Don't know why it's on this site, but this album is fantastic. I wish they had stayed with this sound.

Black Crowes was great. Check out Silvertide's debut album "Show And Tell". The singer sounds EXACTLY like Chris Robinson.

From: Kryiis Karl Date: November 5, 2004 at 15:01
Very good solid rock with master class groove. Like said AOR Freaky this is for sure pure crap, reason why Jimmy Page involved his small talent playing with this band and having his name added to the band's name on a release... AOR Freaky...what else could we expect from someone bearing such a pseudo ???

From: Baris Date: January 30, 2005 at 10:35
Besides this beautiful album, I also admire this drunk and sleepy looking Chris Robinson for getting the Kate Hudson chick. A success story.

From: metalizzer Date: April 7, 2007 at 21:04
this is a very pleasent band! very classic 70īs rock! and the otis redding cover is great! just idiots that have ears for 1 type of music will consider this shit! i like it, itīs very similar to the quireboys, i think they (quireboys) are a bit better because probably from were they come from , they are neerer to the sound that influenced this type of neo 70īs rock! (but still have theyīre finger tip!)

From: headbanger4life Date: July 18, 2007 at 5:34
This is the only release that I have by theses guys and I love it. Great 70's sounding music that came out in the 90's. I think they brought their bluesy sounding southern rock 'n' roll out at the perfect time. It was a pleasant shot in the arm for the music scene.

From: Kindred Date: December 5, 2008 at 22:35
I hated this band when they came out because I consider them to have helped drive the nail in the coffin of the music I really like. If that makes any sense. But, now that i'm older I like this stuff.

From: pie75 Date: February 14, 2009 at 7:34
well freaky u sound like well what can i say "a freak" how could u not like this album every song is a winner nice tight bluesey guitars and great singing why shouldn't they be on this site they rock and this masterpeice proves it it's a shame that chris robinson isn't all there because they have such talent and though i do like all their albums they have never come close 2 the sound quality or style of this 1 i recomend this 2 all people people with common sense that is

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 11, 2011 at 21:53
Mixed comments above about this debut by TBC...IMHO this is quite good...straight Rock'N'Roll with a bit of southern feel...songs such as "Jelaous Again","Could I've Been So Blind","Hard To Handle"(great!),"Thick N' Thin" & "Struttin' Blues" re kinda ones...a matter of tastes but i thumb this one up!!!.90/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 17, 2013 at 15:13
The Black Crowes tried very hard to make sure everyone knew they weren't a metal band playing at southern-rock. Lord knows there were plenty of those in the early '90's (many inspired by the Crowes' success, no doubt). Chris Robinson was constantly trashing the popular hair bands of the day, often by name. In short, they wanted to make it clear they were not a part of that scene in any way whatsoever. Fair enough, as their music is really not metallic at all, with guitars that don't crunch consistently, and piano and organ further smoothing things out. It's southern-rock, but at the time, the band associated with the semi-alternative bands coming out of Georgia at the time, like Drivin' 'n' Cryin'. Very much influenced by the Stones and old R&B, rather than the usual hard-rock touchstones of Aerosmith and Kiss. My favorites would be "Twice As Hard," "Jealous Again," "Sister Luck," "Seein' THings" and "She Talks To Angels." However, I don't care if I never hear "Hard To Handle" again.

From: Ydol eM Date: August 19, 2014 at 9:47
Definitely not bad album but whenever the best song (IMO) of an album is a cover (#6) I feel the band haven't utilize all their potentiality. I would set this album somewhere between Rolling Stones and Aerosmith. Paradoxically, their old-fashioned (70s)/retro hard rock "sprinkled" with blues, southern rock and boogie was at that time being a new attempt (as CC has already written here) trying to attract the then or new rock community... but I nearly passed it by somehow. 75/100.
