La cultura ( musicale ) d'America raccontata con poesia e con semplicità da questi cinque polistrumentisti, autori, cantanti: tutti tranne uno non statunitensi bensì canadesi!

For a bunch of Canadian guys (except Levon Helm) they really get in touch with the music and Americana of the south. The best example is The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down but they are many other in this album. Never gets old!

A grower album, and one of my favorites of all time, just beautiful ballads mixed with lyrics about the Civil War of U.S.

The Band is so special largely because you get so many great voices working together and not just one front-man. The vocals are so good and the songwriting may be even better.

This is the iconic Band album; it’s often referred to as the Brown Album, due to the earthy tones on the cover. Even more than the previous album, it witnesses the group digging into increasingly richer interpretations of traditional music forms. The diversity on The Band is astounding; the album ranges from the hoe-down of ‘Rag Mama Rag’ and funk of ‘Up On Cripple Creek’ to the stateliness of ‘The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down’ and the languidness of ‘Rockin’ Chair’. Robertson, who emerges as the main songwriter on the record, delves explicitly into American history in tracks like ‘The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down’ (a humanistic Southern perspective on the Civil War, prompted by a visit to Helm’s parents) and ‘King Harvest (Has Surely Come)’ (a tale of depression era poverty) while the souls of most of the other tracks are grounded somewhere in a bygone era. There’s also a tangible Biblical flavour to songs like ‘Unfaithful Servant’ and ‘Jawbone’, which adds a further sense of authority to proceedings.

If 'log cabin' was a genre, this album would be the peak of its progression. I enjoyed a few tracks, the melodies on them are very sweet and nostalgic. But unfortunately, a lot of the instrumentation is repetitive, and the lyricism just feels kind of pander-y throughout. I dont see myself returning to this album, but I can definetly see the worth in it. 5.5/10.

A beautiful album that sounds like it was recorded in a riverside shack 200 years ago. The band, is rustic and earthy, and is one of those records that takes you to another time and place every time you hear it. Great performances and songs in, the night they drove old Dixie down, up on cripple creek, and, unfaithful servant. It's a perfect record.

This is the epitome of classic 'rock' for me. Honest themes and honest musicians.

Still one of rock's most endearing and genuine achievements. A very special record in every way.
