Chris Robinson is better known as the singer for The Black Crowes. In his new project, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, he continues the great vocals, but with a different band sound. The album includes more keyboards and more of a jam feel than the traditional Black Crowes. It reminds me of The Black Crowes meets The Grateful Dead meets Pink Floyd. What could be better!
The new cd gets a 5/5 star rating in my book. The keyboards are experimental and Chris’ melodies and vocals are better than ever. Add in a great jam guitarist and drummer and you get a superior album. In my eyes, it’s one of the best releases so far in 2012. The music is well written, well arranged, and it isn’t just a Chris Robinson solo cd. He includes the full band and gives everyone a chance to shine for a well balanced album.
