"Regardless, the song comes off as smug." You mean smug like you Eric, when you call women "fucking bitches"? Get bent you fucking dinosaur.
the Black Crowes new album is definately a strong one. sure it has a bit more of an adult contemporary feel to it then say the balls out 'Amorica' or '3 Snakes', but it is miles ahead of the 'By Your Side' and the put a bullet in me 'Lions.'
i am happy to report that the real meat of the crowes - thier live gigs - are still slamming. I was fortunate enough to catch one of the few club shows when they stopped in Atlanta (less than a week before the Tabernacle was devestated by the tornado) and it was stellar. The first set was the entire new album, from start to finish, followed by a couple of songs and an encore. The recording came out quite nicely.
I really dig some of the production work on the album and the song writing has taken off again since Chris had his little heart stomped on. Locust Street, Evergreen, and Movin on down the Line are great tracks and the ragtime bridge in Gold in them Hills is some of the best shit on a cd i have heard in a while.
This was one of my favorite tours of Todd's the Tiki Lounge tour awesome cd.
Where can I hear the Gutter Twins? And when are they coming to Tampa?
The thing that I love the most about Ringo Starr is that when The Beatles went to India to meditate and study with the Maharishi, Ringo flew home after only seven days claiming he "couldn't eat spicy food." If only he'd stayed on, maybe he'd be writing better songs today. Just throwing that out there.
a local note on the Kelly Stoltz disc... former Tampa resident Shayde Sartin (who played in a several Tampa like Tomorrow and with me in The AmeriCar Underworld) has been playing with Stoltz for about 5 years and lends his talents to 3 tracks on this disc. it's a great album, so please check it out. be sure to catch Stoltz on tour, Shayde tells me Kelly should be heading to tampa (thought probably sans Mr. Sartin).
GO out and purchase 2 copies of Jalopypaint

You should probably get the lyrics right if you're going to write an article criticizing the album, that is, if you're going for credibility:
- "When eyes can't look at you any other way" and "IF the world is such a wonderful place."
Come on, man, give it a couple more listens. This album isn't just good, it's GREAT.
The Eagles... ouch.
when will it come out to the UK.
Snakes & Arrows is far better than you give it credit for.Need to rethink review!
Comparing the vocals of Lang with Karen Carpenter?
You are a tone deaf idiot!
Don't forget Sweet Talking Woman and Mr. Blue Sky, the former an AM and FM staple in the summer of 1978.

Great record, but "Argybargy" is better!
and i love this record. a great debut, when you think about. i wonder what is next for these guys.
Thrilled to actually see the Silk Degrees reissue mention here at Creative Loafing TB.
To Boz fans, the rare "Live" cuts are worth the $10.00 alone.
"Otherwise, she remains in the Linda Ronstadt, easy-listening class. " There is much more to Linda's body of work than her easy listening hits. Perhaps the critic is not knowledgeable about Linda's true body of work. Her vocal abilities are light years beyond Norah Jones. Just compare the songs that have been recorded by both of them.
i was born on filmore st. in san fran.in 1950 iwas turned on to moby grape in 1967.to this day i listen to their music often.to me easily the s.f. band ever,and i saw all of them!
I love this album. I can't see why. some people don't consider it equal with Wonder's later works in the 70's. There just isn't anyone who can write music like this today. So many memorable moments on this album. wish stevie would tour just one last time....
