I had a 2 1/2 hr flight to Chicago last night and one of the records I listened to was Warpaint. It's been quite a while since I've listened to it all the way through.

All I can say is SONOFABITCH!!!!

That's one KILLER album!!

IMO....the first 3 are their best, with the first 2 being the best of the 3.
I go back an forth between "Shake Your Money Maker" and "Southern Harmony and the Musical Companion" being my favorite.....but I now put Warpaint on equal ground with SYMM and SHMC any day of the week.

The Crowes have had some heavyweight guitarists rotate through, but again IMO.....Luther fits that band the best. He's so diverse, and just such a major baddass!!

I can't think of a stronger opening 5 tracks on any album!!

And, there's not one single dud on there!!

If you're a Crowes fan and you haven't listened in a while (or ever).....do yourself a favor and dust it off......it's a KILLER!!!

It's pretty good overall, but honesty I like most of their other albums better. (I think Warpaint was the last purchase I made at a Circuit City).

I really like their last one, Before the Frost I think it's called.

A handful of tunes on Warpaint are up there with best the Crowes have ever done:

Wounded Bird
Movin' on Down the Line
Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution
Oh Josephine

The following discs, "Before the Frost... and Until the Freeze" are brilliant, and begin the transition to Chris Robinsons' new Brotherhood material...

I agree Warpaint pretty killer record. Before The Frost-Until The Freeze is just brilliant. And I'll always love Amorica, just the right amount of edginess and beautiful ballad type songs. But really,they've been my favorite band since they first came out.

I like BTF...UTF better than Warpaint, but still enjoyed Warpaint and love Luther. SHMC and Amorica are my favorite Crowes albums.

Yeah, good stuff, great tones, but I like the BTF stuff better. Nothing beats Southern Harmony, Amorica, 3 Snakes though.

This is my favorite from the album because it turned into a great jamming song when played live. They sometimes put great long jams going into the intro part.

Warpaint is underrated for sure. That said, I wish Marc and Eddie were on there....would have been epic.

I miss Ford.

This is my favorite from the album because it turned into a great jamming song when played live. They sometimes put great long jams going into the intro part.
During the 2010-11-05 show in NYC Sven had amp troubles during the first verse and chorus, so they decided to fade back into the space intro like they wrote it that way then jam for a bit while he got the problem worked out. Chris Robinson dubbed it "like, the coolest technical difficulty ever" and I would agree...it was awesome.

I seem to remember a lot of people giving Warpaint **** when it first came out but honestly, I think it's a solid album. Doesn't come anywhere close to Southern Harmony/Amorica/Three Snakes in my opinion but there are definitely some good songs on it (Oh Josephine and Movin' On Down The Line being the standouts). Then again, There's Gold In Them Hills and God's Got It are two of my least favorite Crowes songs.

I kinda like the BCs but I'm not familiar with a lot of their stuff.

On the one hand, I was trying to be a bit humorous in my original post, but on the other hand, I really did think the thread was gonna be about the band Warpaint. So in that context, I was thinking, "Who's Ford?" I know Warpaint started out with a different drummer than their current one. And all of the album titles mentioned didn't ring a bell especially within the context of who I thought the thread was about. I have one Warpaint CD and another CD that's kind of an EP and I don't think they have more than 2 other releases.

I was so confused :huh

:beer

Cheers returned to a fellow Warpaint fan!

Loooonnngg time Black Crowes fan here - just look at my handle! :)

I remember the first show I saw upon the release of this album: Charlottesville, Va. It was n a downtown ampitheater and Grace Potter was opening the show. It was raining buckets all around us...I mean torrential... and we were under the cover of the tent over the ampitheater. When Grace was finished with her set, the rain had let up and the crew went about checking all the equipment for the Crowes.
After all that - and being a musician, I was worried about the water that had spilled onto the stage, etc. - the Crowes came on with 'Move It On Down the Line'.
"It's allright sisters, it's allright brothers..."
Too f'in cool!
