First obvious note, of the 4 current or past Black Crowes members to release records this year, Chris Robinson's is the only one not to make my Top 10. I could make a Top 30 and it probably still wouldn't make it.
The top 4 are all interchangeable. SPBB only gets the #1 spot because of how blown away I was the first time I heard "Call Me". I pulled my car over to find out who/what it was.
*I got Ginger's record in late 2013, but it wasn't commercially released until this year so I'm letting it count.
