doobie bros(Los Angeles) World Gone Crazy, the first new album by The Doobie Brothers in 10 years on HOR Records, soared into the upper reaches of the sales charts in its very first week of release. It hit the Top 10 of Billboard’s Independent Albums chart, debuting at #8, as well as #14 on the Top Internet Albums chart. It also debuted in the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 at #39 and at #31 on the Top Digital Albums chart.

At the same time, critics are hailing the return to record by the legendary rock’n’roll group who boast 40 million albums sold over their nearly four decade career. The New York Post declared World Gone Crazy as its pick for the Grammy Award for “Album of the Year,” hailing it as “a smokin’ mix of roadhouse boogies, classic rock and country.” The Newark Star-Ledger featured the lead single “Nobody” as its “Song of the Day,” dubbing it “excellent.”

The Fort Smith Times Record noted how at a recent show “new songs from the just-released World Gone Crazy CD… all were given the cheers and whistles usually associated with a group’s most-beloved cuts.” Read more
