Phosphorescent Harvest - Mediocre, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 50
Based on rating 5/10

Phosphorescent Harvest is the third full-length offering from the Chris Robinson Brotherhood. Their debut, Big Moon Ritual, was soaked in various tried-and-true retro-rock tropes that allowed them to "jam" in lengthy tunes -- none under seven minutes -- and worked in that context. The Magic Door followed three months later. It traded on a more orderly frame of vintage rock and blues, though it did play host to the 13-minute-plus Grateful Dead-esque post-psychedelia of "Vibration & Light Suite." Phosphorescent Harvest attempts more formal songwriting while simultaneously letting the freak flag fly in trying to evoke the spirit of vintage California rock.

Based on rating 2/5

Over the years the Black Crowes’ catalog reflects diluted, diminishing returns. What started out as a strutting combination of rugged Faces’ boogie and soulful Southern rock, ultimately dissipated into a band going through the motions, albeit one with the potential for another gem. On-again/off-again Crowes reunions, and the many live albums that have resulted from them, bear this out.
