Amoeba Review

07/19/2017

If you read that album title, looked at that cover art and expected anything other than the most feel good, chemically enhanced, clothing optional folk-rock jamboree this side of Bumbershoot, well then shame on you, partner. Former Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson keeps his endless boogie going strong with Allman Brothers-inspired jams, folksy ensemble playing delivered with consummate ability, and uplifting, gospel-tinged melodies. “Behold the Seer” starts the album off high on the hog, with a funky southern lilt accompanying some seriously inebriated lyrics, including bits about wizards and trains and feelin’ good and all that good stuff. It ain’t always sunshine though, friends, as the Dylan-evoking “If You Had a Heart to Break” is the gorgeous comedown piece to all the psychedelic revelry, featuring twinkling pianos and aching slide guitars ornamenting the downtrodden troubadour ruminating on lost love. The band seems oblivious to the misery, playing their hearts out with joyful exuberance. Hey, when the grooves are this good you might be able to dance through just about anything, too.
