    Captured live in the studio at LA's Sunset Sound, they've never sounded better in their 20-year career, their Southern roots more proudly on parade than ever. [Oct 22010, p.87]
  2. The album is much better than a greatest-hits affair – it's a reason to go on.
  3. The band does much better reexamining more-obscure parts of its catalog.
  4. A happy-trails present to fans and entry point into a farewell tour, Croweology isn't remotely practical, but it is fun, a loose revisiting of Crowes songs resculpted in a good-natured, gather-round-the-campfire style.
  5. Anyone who has enjoyed the Crowes' live show will find it a veritable trove of delights.
  6. Though it may not showcase any new original material, it at least gives the feeling that the Black Crowes are not about to let their next hiatus wash them away in a wave of unsatisfying nostalgia: they will leave us only looking for more.
  7. Croweology serves as a reminder that the Crowes may be one of the country's most underrated and misunderstood bands.
  8. This is the sound of seasoned veterans still finding new ways to play old favorites.
  9. Not for those new to the band; interesting for those already acquainted. [31 Jul 2010, p.51]

    Truly devoted fans will certainly savour such standouts as the glistening, blissed-out "Ballad In Urgency" and feel-good bluegrass nugget "Downtown Money Waster," but less patient Crowe-watchers may find this a rather long, just occasionally indulgent goodbye. [Sep 2010, p.98]
  11. Relaunching the Black Crowes brand with 2008 tomahawk Warpaint and the mature winter blues of follow-up Before the Frost/Until the Freeze here earns the Robinson boys a victory lap.
