Bad Thing and Peace Pipe are great. They remind me of some of the older groups such as Bad Company or Humble Pie.

From: Mike G. Date: July 25, 2001 at 10:57
Great album!! If you like good ballsy, bluesy hard rock, you'll love this!!

From: julio Date: August 9, 2001 at 1:34
Increible .Es la ostia¡¡¡¡¡¡

From: james Date: November 9, 2001 at 14:05
Sound a lot like BAD COMPANY. If you like Paul Rogders you will enjoy this album. a solid 8.

From: Don Date: February 16, 2002 at 14:36
Also, not listed here is their great 1997 record "Diamonds and Debris," which features the incredible Robert Mason (from 2nd Lynch Mob record) on vocals!!!!

From: ezed Date: February 25, 2002 at 22:58
true,this 1st cd rocks,songs have a great beat.kearns and patterson have teamed up with the awesome chris duarte now! the greatest blues rock guitarist out there! takes clapton,srv,hendrix to a modern day "schooling".these 3 flat out will kick your ASS!if you like blues rock done to perfection,check out all of the chris duarte group,you wont be sorry!

From: Scott Date: September 6, 2002 at 10:53
A buddy just turned me on to this band. Man I love it. Great rythem and perfect timing with grungy hard rock riffs. Sweet.

From: EddieP Date: September 25, 2002 at 10:04
A strong influence of Free, Bad Co., and Hendrix riffs, This is a supergroup that was lost in time, 1993 was not a time when the masses were into this style of music. Very unfortunate for these guys because this is probably one of the defining albums of the entire hard rock genre!

From: Tassos Greece Date: November 19, 2002 at 9:05
One of the best rock records I have ever listened. It is a supergroup with Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hendrix influence but very unfortunate because their style could only be appreciated by old rockers and not by the 90's generation.

From: manos - Greece Date: January 2, 2003 at 1:01
I dont think there is any Southern Rock band that plays like these guys. The sound of the guitar is so alive, you think sometimes the tube amplifier will blow up! Some great bunch of vocals, Kelly Holland puts really some character.

From: matthias Date: February 21, 2003 at 16:06
Kelly - get your ass back into the studio and don´ forget to pick Audley from the Crowes´nest. And get back to Robert and Jason, too!! You guys do not seem to know that a chemistry like yours devellops only once in a lifetime. Do you really want to waste your talent in a Top-40 band?!? Gee!

From: neil Date: August 18, 2003 at 18:02
This to me is one of the best blue/rock albums I've ever heard. It's comparible to any Bad Company or other albums made of their influences. These guys should most definitely remember the god given talent they possess needs to be shared with others. Come on guys PLEASE write another album.

Hey neil, did a little research being a COL fan myself, and apparently there was another album called "Diamonds and Debris" released in 1997. No idea if it's any good, but you can find it on Amazon. If ya decide to check it out, let me know if it's worth snaggin'.

From: TYTAN3K Date: August 20, 2003 at 20:27
I actually prefer Diamonds and Debris over this one. It has the awesome Robert Mason of Lynch Mob/Silent Witness on vocals. It was the first Cry Of Love I heard...and when I finally got around to hearing this one, I was dissapointed.

From: Luden Date: November 6, 2003 at 5:45
The Best!!! A must for all Rock N' Rollers out there!!! Also, Ceck out the second slbum... Diamonds and Debris!!! Cry Of Love, One of my fave bands!!!

From: Gar Date: January 16, 2004 at 5:01
A 90's band playing in a classic rock style. How could you not love it? Although this isn't the best album out there, it's got a lot going for it. Solid songs, great production,and excellent musicianship. Put this one in your collection and you won't be disappointed.

From: John Date: January 16, 2004 at 16:42
Couldn't agree more Gar. I always describe this to my friends as similar to the Black Crowes before they got weird. Doesn't get much better than 'Peace Pipe' or 'Gotta Love Me'. 9/10

From: red Date: February 7, 2004 at 16:22
Somewhere between Bad Company, Hendrix and Journey. I saw them open for Aerosmith in 1994 and they were a good live band as well.

From: DebRutsid Date: February 7, 2004 at 17:37
I've been listening to this album since I was 6 it is an awesome album and I still Love it!

From: PauloFernandes Date: February 7, 2004 at 22:17
Amazing album, i love this one to death- one of my top 5 cds, no doubt about that - a true classic - Audley Freed is in Black Crowes now, what a waste, if only they'd let him include some of his songs maybe Lions would have turned out a better album - awesome live band too. 10/10

From: Hank Date: March 7, 2004 at 7:38
No matter who it sounds like to you.. This is just FLAT OUT a great CD ...Period !!! One of my all time favorites .. I like all kinds of music, but this CD just reeks of SOUL and KICK A** attitude.. I could not imagine these songs played any better .. Vocals A+++... Guitar A+++.. Drums and Bass solid as a rock. I wanna hear a sister CD ;- )

From: illimey Date: May 4, 2004 at 19:47
I have to agree with everyone else - this is a classic. As others have mentioned it is hard not to immediately think of Free/Bad Company as soon as this album starts spinning - and that's not just because of the vocals. Some of the guitar work is eerily reminiscent of the (very) late Paul Kossoff. What a guitarist he was - I find it difficult to imagine what his contribution to music would have been if he hadn't died at 25... Anyway back to this CD. If you don't have it, and like music, buy it.

From: xavieskay Date: May 9, 2004 at 8:11
no doubt, kelly holland is one of the best hardrock singers in the world, what a voice, my god!!!! where is he now??

From: BOLIN44 Date: March 1, 2005 at 4:11
All I can say is buy BOTH Cry Of Love CD's. They are COMPLETE hard blues masterpieces!! The 2 CD's don't sound alike, which is a GOOD thing for me. I dig a different approach on each new album. I say keep it fresh and try new shit! Also, it's 2 different singers is what sets these 2 CD's apart. Kelly keeps it REAL 70's with his voice. Robert, on the 2nd CD, adds more of a hard rock 80's sound with his vocals. I tell you what, I own both CD's from JAPAN. I only get favs in JAP, They sound better!

From: BOLIN44 Date: March 1, 2005 at 4:22
(Continued from above) Also, I NEVER get autographs from band members I meet. But Cry Of Love is a different matter! I saw them LIVE in Seattle and had the band sign my 2 Promo Posters and CD. I'll tell you what, These guys are WAAAAY better live man!! I didn't MOVE one bit during the whole show, I couldn't believe a band could be so fucking tight. I stared at Audley Freed most of the night, the Guitar sound he had, shit!! They played a small club is the reason it was so personal and special.

From: onemorecast Date: March 3, 2005 at 21:47
Southern Fried Rock at it's best. Bad Thing is just awesome. I love the guitar work and vocals on this CD. Too bad they hit their peak with this one.

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2005 at 6:24
IMO this was one of the most lacklustre and boring CDs I ever heard. Awful, IMO.

From: oliver Date: March 8, 2005 at 9:30
i agree. sold my copy very quickly. not worth buying.

From: ghettonation73 Date: June 28, 2005 at 8:45

From: OdgeUK Date: August 10, 2005 at 9:18

From: Remastered Reason Date: February 14, 2006 at 12:39
Excellent debut which blows their 2nd release away. Any fan of southern fried blues rock should have this in their collection. Too bad the band never took off commercially else they would be the modern day Bad Company.

From: Lovedrive Date: April 19, 2006 at 15:17
Auténtico disco de hard rock sureño, que si bien no tiene grandes estribillos ni temas especialmente pegadizos se deja escuchar la mar de bien. Mis fav: "Bad thing" y "Saving Grace"

From: funkfool Date: May 20, 2006 at 0:08
If you have't checked out the 2nd CD Diamonds and Debris - get it - listen to it about a dozen times and see if it isn't part of you.

From: juan carlos Date: February 8, 2007 at 21:40
Indudablemente un disco solo para fanáticos del Hardrock bluesístico emparentados claramente con los Black Crowes, la voz tambien a la de Chris Robinson y claro a los Bad Co. tambien. Abstenerse melódicos y AOReros. "Gotta Love Me" y como no "Peace Pipe" recomendables, un disco para rockear con mucho bluesss.. aunque no estoy tan emocionado como la mayoría. Tú mismo.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 27, 2008 at 1:37
Listening to this, there's almost no way to tell it was released in 1993 instead of, say 1975. They've got not just the sound, but also the FEEL, of great, hard, bluesy classic-rock down to a T. In slightly more modern terms, it really reminds me of a funkier, less metallic Badlands, in both the guitarwork and vocals. Favorites are "Highway Jones," "Peace Pipe," "Hand Me Down," and "Bad Thing."

I expected another hair metal record and when I heard half of the album I said this is not near to hair metal but it's a very good bluesy rock album. my faves: peace pipe and too cold in the winter.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 14, 2011 at 21:12
I have this album since it came out and never had a chance to comment it but now time has come...first of all fans of The Black Crowes and Led Zeppelin will love this surely!!!...great hoarsy vocalist in Mr Kelly Holland and good musicianship overall..."Highway Jones","Pretty As You Please","Bad Thing","Gotta Love Me","Carnival" & "Peace Pipe" are outstanding songs that will put a smile in your face if you like songs with some 70's feel ala Black Oak Arkansas or the bands i have just mentioned first...get this!!!.93/100

From: hair metal again Date: February 11, 2013 at 10:00
pretty good release by CRY OF LOVE back in 93 ,released by Columbia records!this one is into the classic hard rock sound of the 70 s -early 80 s and it reminded me much of the mighty BAD COMPANY i d say!the band is very solid,the songs ok and the whole vibe is quite accurate!"gotta love me " and " carnival " are my favs!good stuff!
