It is impressive the quantity of blues scales variotions, Robert Johson would be proud of another accomplished pupille.
Brunson's duty is simple, keep track with Kirk along the savage riffing that goes on this record. Lyric-wise the album represents Kirk throwing away the nails for his coffin, same coffin he was really close during mid 's with years of alcohol abuse, relationship problems along with depression related problems and rehab.
It seems that all of his harsh times have been washed away as the lyrics highlight it on tracks such as Wealth of Empathy and Teach the Blind to See. Album's production is top notch, all instruments are beautifully equalized, there's large room for guitar as they were on previous efforts, except for Lifesblood.
Guitars do not have a suficient depth and reach comparable to its previous albums, wich can be a let down for more demanding ears. Drums are heavily triggered since Server the Wicked Hand, Symmetry In White - Crowbar - Symmetry In Black must be some of Buckley's negative influences on Crowbar. Crowbar's drums were always raw, crude and vivid, somewhat used to shine throughout the record ie. Perhaps François Cousineau - Clin doeil à des amis a way Kirk found to "democratize" Crowbar,allowing each member to contribute somewhat equally on the producion of the album, what is truly remarkable since there had been several inconsistencies with its lineup before Note: When you embed the widget in your site, it will match your site's styles CSS.

Yesterday - Réal Berthioume - Airs En Verres Reviews Song Reviews. Song Lyrics. Review: RIFF-it. As a long time Crowbar listener, I would admit that some of their albums are more familiar and get more playing time than others.
The self titled album, Lifesblood For The Downtrodden and Sonic Excess In Its Purest Form would be my favourites but, truthfully, they have never made a bad record and even their more average albums are much better than most bands' best. Massive riffs, great vocal performance, this is exactly the type of thing Crowbar are known for. The quasi-title track in white takes things down a notch in parts but is still weighty and melancholy all at the same time.
Windstein has always professed a love for everything from Motorhead to much more mainstream 70's pop songs and that eclectic approach to listening pays off in his writing. The pacing drops for weight to drag the track along Symmetry In White - Crowbar - Symmetry In Black then gloriously returns to faster tempos.
Superb stuff. Melancholy and slow, the band refuse to play just in one way and the diversity benefits the record.
