This album is pure metaphysical bliss.

After a long series of re-issued albums, reviewed in the last edition of Fireworks*, here we finally have a new piece of music poetry by this marvellous artist. It's clearer than ever now that Rich Robinson has been the soul of The Black Crowes, the interpreter of the most intense, heartfelt and in-depth feelings they made us used to, sung with the ferocious grace of his counterpart, his brother Chris.

Rich Robinson, instead, is more on the intimism side, with a voice that sounds like telling you old stories of life, comforting and soothing you; like an old friend that you meet on a sunny day in a park by chance and then sharing a joint sitting on the grass. And this friendly storyteller, let me tell you, is one of those guys you would be sitting with for hours, listening in amazement to the simple magnificence of his two chords. Maybe you would be invited to sing-along and strum some strings, too, I'm sure. The music here is something you won't find anywhere nowadays, alienated as we are in a sea of processed and reasoned music products.

Opening tracks 'The Upstairs Land' and 'Shipwreck' gently welcome you on a higher land of Soul Rock where just the warm and intimate binding between man and instrument matters. Few notes shared between an acoustic guitar and an electric one, some groovy bass lines and a vintage Hammond in the background, you don't need anything else to make you dream your life away. But, if that wasn't enough to make you stand up, rejoice and dance, the single 'The Music That Will Lift Me' would be there for you to heat your heart up.

That's not to mention the glorious 'Everything's Alright', a heavenly acoustic trip with hints of Gospel that sounds like getting out of the third Led Zeppelin chapter. Same with 'Life' and 'Ides Of Nowhere', which come across so mystical, evocative and realistic. Even at the very end of this album, there is some material to dream with, that majestic and peaceful alternation between acoustic and electric which makes 'Sleepwalker' so memorable and almost religious.

This album is pure metaphysical bliss and makes you - if you haven't yet – understand how simple things in life can expose you to such inner and enormous enlightenments sometimes. Ride the 'flux'.
