    The Cosmic Cowboys Return to Earth with New Tunes

    If the first two CRB albums were psychedelic pioneers with the sights set on the cosmos, this album definitely bears the fruits of their interstellar endeavors. Far more keyboard-driven than either "Big Moon Ritual" or "The Magic Door," "Phosphorescent Harvest" beautifully blends country and southern rock with groovily-haunting keyboards. The biggest difference in how the band sounds now is the level of control Adam MacDougall has over each and every song. His keyboard playing has completely changed how the band sounds and feels, and it's definitely creating some intriguing, out-of-this-world textures. Whereas "Big Moon Ritual" and "The Magic Door" felt like what could have been new Grateful Dead records if not for the unfortunate passing of Jerry Garcia, "Phosphorescent Harvest" sounds more like what the Dead might have sounded like if Pink Floyd's Richard Wright had joined the band. Now, if you're looking for the big, trippy jams that dominated the last two albums, you won't find them here. At least not in as great of length, anyway. The longest song is "Clear Blue Skies & The Good Doctor," which could have easily been split into two songs that blended into one another. Other than that, the only other song to breach the 7 minute barrier is the album closer "Burn Slow." The average song is in the 5 minute range, which, considering the band we're talking about, seems pretty short. In my opinion, the songs on "Phosphorescent Harvest" don't pack as much punch as anything the band has previously recorded. However, as I mentioned earlier, they're delving into new territory with their music, and it's definitely nothing like they've done before. This is also drummer George Sluppick's last album with the band, so we could be in store for more sonic evolution as new drummer Tony Leone brings his musical talents to the collective. Is this an album worth owning? If you were blown away by the last two and excited to hear more, yes. If you keep buying CRB records to fill the gap between Black Crowes reunions, perhaps you should save your money. Chances are none of these songs will be seen on a Crowes setlist.

    The psychedelic flame continues to burn bright for the former (?) Black Crowe and his band, but this time there's even a little old-style prog-rock thrown in. And with Ryan Adams' old right hand man taking over as Chris Robinson's, there's some "alt-country" elements as well (whatever that term is supposed to mean). While no song jumps at you at first listen, the vocals on "Wanderer's Lament" are ace, and the overall quality is consistent. Recommended.

    These guys are Awesome. The CD is a mix of country, blues, and just plain jams. It reminds me of the bands of the 70's that just wrote excellent songs and lyrics. This album is great and I would highly recommend it. It takes you back in time and reminds you there are still great musician in the business......

    Love the first 4 solo records......this one has not grown on me yet....first song doesnt fit in with rest of record at all....like a stand alone single...rest of album seems self indulgent and without specific direction....also not very memorable despite repeated listens...

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
