The Black Crowes Unhappy With Maxim's Review on 'Warpaint'


The Black Crowes claimed that the writer of the magazine that gave their upcoming album a two-and-a-half stars has not actually listened to the CD.

Unhappy with the way a Maxim's writer has reviewed their new album "Warpaint", The Black Crowes have released a statement lashing out the publication on their official site. The album received two-and-a-half stars out of five in the review despite the fact that the writer reportedly has not listened to the CD.

"The writer - who has not heard the album since advance CDs were not made available - wrote what appears to be a disparaging assessment anyway, citing, 'it hasn't left Chris Robinson and the gang much room for growth,'" read a post on the band's official Website. The review appears on the March issue of the magazine.

The band's manager Pete Angelus addressed this situation saying, "It speaks directly to the lack of the publication's credibility. In my opinion, it's a disgrace to the arts, journalism, critics, the publication itself and the public. What's next - Maxim's concert reviews of shows they never attended, book reviews of books never read and film reviews of films never seen?"

Maxim magazine has also released a statement in response that neither deny or confirm the allegation. "Maxim will continue to provide our readers with information that is important to them, whether it is about fashion, lifestyle, technology, music, movies and more," the statement read.

"Warpaint" is the band's first album in seven years which will be released on March 4. They will conduct a number of "One Night Only" shows in support of the album starting from March 2 in New Jersey. Complete dates can be viewed below.
