“Razorblade” is one of the highlights on the album. The introspective lyrical composition is supported by a poignant performance from the vocalist. This slow-burning song is evocative of early Nirvana, Puddle of Mud, and Cloud Nothings. This is the kind of song you listen to over and over again to soak in all of the nuances and intricacies.
Crowe offer an incredible journey on the heartfelt fuzzed out rock n roll that adorns “Crowe III”. Flawless with their raw grit, these songs are fully fleshed out, lived in and loved. Highly intimate they take from classic rock, indie rock, garage rock, and a hint of psychedelic rock to make something that truly sings. Vocals feature a unique earnestness that permeates the entirety of the album. By far what ties these many pieces together are the thoughtful lyrics that have a highly personal form of poetry to them. The buildups featured throughout have a great power to them.
Crowe 2.0” is one of those albums that surprisingly work. The sound is noisy, lo-fi, and slightly “untidy,” but that’s what makes it great. If it had been over-produced and glossily polished, it would have been ruined. The loud, free flowing rock combined with Crowe’s knack for songwriting, makes “Crowe 2.0” a real winner. The lyrics are excellent while the music is just flat-out amazing
Crowe’s second album, Crowe 2.0 is a set of tunes that stands as a testimony to all that is soul-warming about classic rock and roll, with some blues bite thrown in to the mix.

Their focus on keeping things simple has produced a sound that fits as well in the current music scene as it would in the music of 40 years ago. The northern music mecca is starting to take notice as they have been playing legendary Toronto venues such as The Horseshoe Tavern, Lee’s Palace, and The Hard Rock Café. Local radio loves Crowe too as they were selected as “Indie Band of the Month” on 102.1 the Edge
