    When the Black Crowes' first album appeared in early 1990, it was a record out of time--a rootsy, swaggering, Stones-meets-Faces rock & roll disc released at the height of hair metal mania. Nearly two decades later, the band had built a substantial catalog and become hailed as one of rock's most exciting live acts, yet remained as artistically uncompromising as ever. It's perhaps no surprise, then, that the group decided to record BEFORE THE FROST and its accompanying album UNTIL THE FREEZE live in the studio in front of a small audience of devoted fans over the course of just five nights. The results are suitably rough n' ready, and finds the band matching classic rock influences (as on "I Ain't Hiding," which recalls the Stones BLACK & BLUE era) with its own trademark shambling southern rock vibe.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "FREEZE is a set of American beauties that flow from spacey bluegrass to good-time boogie and pensive country folk."
    Billboard (p.28) - "[O]pener 'Good Morning Captain' rides a roadhouse-worthy slide-guitar groove, while gorgeous harmonies enrich a cover of the Stephen Stills/Chris Hillman gem 'So Many Times.'"
    Q (Magazine) (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[O]pener 'Good Morning Captain' adds bluegrass infusions to the band's spliff-infused blues, while 'I Ain't Hiding' brings the funk..."
    Uncut (magazine) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Good Morning Captain' and 'A Train Still Makes A Lonely Sound' swagger especially splendidly."
