The Black Crowes 

Warpaint (Silver Arrow)

2078033.t.jpg

For the past several years, the Black Crowes have had more drama than The Hills. First, singer Chris Robinson did his part in the scruffy-rocker-marries-cute-young-actress sweepstakes. Then the band became a rotating cast of supporting musicians before finally breaking up at the start of the decade. Thankfully, none of the behind-the-scenes fuss surfaces on the group's first album in seven years, Warpaint — a gritty rock record that sounds more like the Crowes CDs that people bought than later bombs like Lions. It helps that Chris and Rich Robinson are once again delivering a potent mix of rock, blues, country, and folk in songs like "Wounded Bird", "Oh Josephine" and "There's Gold in Them Hills."
