For his sixth studio album with the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, the eponymous frontman melds the Southern rock boogie of his past—in Georgia's the Black Crowes—with the mellow vibes and canyon psychedelia so associated with his adopted home state of California. The band may not be reinventing the wheel, but they have good taste. You can hear traces of The Mamas and The Papas in the swirling harmonies of "Venus in Chrome" and a nod to the Allman Brothers in the ballad "Stars Fell on California." Apparently, among those stars is where Robinson and Co. want to be. Cosmic guitars dominate "A Smiling Epitaph" and wanderer’s lope "Comin' Round the Mountain," while the instrumental "Madder Rose Interlude" is a retro spaceman jam. Always, though, CRB adds fresh customization to their echoes of influence: fusion-jazz shimmers on opener "Stone Earthly Delights," shuffling rhythms and rollicking keyboards for "Let It Fall." It's not a stretch to imagine "The Chauffeur's Daughter" or "Rare Birds" on a Crowes record, but right now Robinson sounds like he's just where he should be. © Qobuz

And to say that in the early 90s, he was filling up stadiums and selling millions of albums. Yes millions! By him, we mean Chris Robinson: former singer of the Black Crowes, which he co-founded in 1989 with his younger brother Rich. In its glory days, the made in Georgia band served as a substitute Stones/Faces/Allman Brothers, thanks in part to their astonishing first two albums: Shake Your Money Maker in 1990, and most importantly their masterpiece The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion in 1992. After that, the Robinson brothers both went into a solo career before reuniting and parting up again, and then again… Since 2011, the older has been working under the name Chris Robinson Brotherhood, for which he surrounded himself with Neal Casal on guitar, Adam MacDougall on keyboards, Jeff Hill on bass and Tony Leone on drums. A prolific swerve as Barefoot In The Head already is their fifth album! As usual, CRB offers a delicious Southern ragout in which good old blues rock, psychedelic rock, country and soul coexist. Fans from Black Crowes’ early days will find here a fair dose of the late band’s DNA, with a supplement of soul. Groove plays an integral part in this album maybe slightly more accessible, less viscerally Southern and a bit subtler than its predecessor… © MD/Qobuz

A companion piece to June's Big Moon Ritual, September's Magic Door finds the Chris Robinson Brotherhood in perhaps a rowdier mood than a few months prior, rocking harder from the get-go with a nicely shambolic reading of Hank Ballard's "Let's Go Let's Go Let's Go," and following it up with an earthy blues shuffle "Someday Past the Sunset." Soon afterward, the CRB slides into purple paisley territory, reviving the Black Crowes' trippy western ballad "Appaloosa" and stretching out for a long 14 minutes on "Vibration & Light Suite," signs that Robinson's second band are cheerfully unwashed hippies, happy to follow the groove wherever it may lead them. Generally, Magic Door runs a little shorter than Big Moon Ritual, and it does have a bit more of a rollicking blues vibe -- "Little Lizzie Mae" picks up on the thread left from "Someday Past the Sunset" and "Wheel Don't Roll" has a nicely boozy gait -- but this ain't rock & roll, this is cosmic American music, a trippy celebration of everything the Dead meant. If you're ready to get on the bus, Magic Door will surely take you further. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
