    The best album of this year, and the best tribute to the 60's & 70's rock and roll & blues.

    Thick and bluesy. Sounded like Southren Musical Harmony part two. The Crowes are back!

    This release finds the Crowes soul searching and inviting us to. come with them. Though this release doesn't slam you over the head as some of their past albums, you cant help but eagerly join them in their journey while singing along.

    It's good to have them back. The irony is that they sound the same as always, but because they are so completely different than any music being made right now their sound is refreshing.

    This album is their most mature work yet. If this is the direction Crowes are headed...I like it!

    The Crowes reach deep into themselves and American (and Amorican) tradition to make an original album of great rock and roll.

    I think this is a true return to form - the first "real' honest great record from the Crowes since America. Haven't stopped listening to it all week... its a great album, a mix of instant gratification and 'growers' that sneakily make their way into the back of your head. Its full of beautiful real tones and a world away from the paint-by-numbers imposter rock being I think this is a true return to form - the first "real' honest great record from the Crowes since America.

Its full of beautiful real tones and a world away from the paint-by-numbers imposter rock being pummelled on radio at the moment. Its all i could ask for. Luther Dickonson is a welcome addition and contributes to a real band feel. Like the Crowes best work, its a mix of musical styles, a stew that is satisfying and leaves me feeling contented. Expand

    Very sold...love the addition of dickinson's slide guitar. Chris robinson sounds the same as he ever has. A couple of filler songs that are ok, but also easily forgettable keep it from being an entirely great album.

    Long time Crowes fan, this album is fantastic on 1st listens but fades with time I feel I am more interested in older material, still.

  1. They're old-fashioned, but in the best sense: they're in it for the long haul, which the superb Warpaint proves beyond a shadow of a doubt.
  2. Warpaint mines the same Allmans-to-Zappa synthesis of influences that's been the Crowes' stock in trade but finds the group fortified by sharp songwriting and lace-tight, live-sounding performances.
  3. A much-matured (now fortysomething father) Chris ?nds peace and clarity through some of his ?nest, most poetic storytelling to date.
