More mainstream? Yes. Still superb? Most definitely!!!!

I would agree with previous reviewers - being a massive BSC fan and having seen them live twice (with a 3rd coming soon in Dec) they are a quality act. Very engaging with the audience, skillful and talented musicians, great showmen and thoroughly nice guys. The first two albums were definitely more for the hardcore faithful and they are clearly trying to branch out and expand their fanbase with this 3rd offering which is more mainstream and more anthemic (In My Blood, Can't You See), more sing-a-long and more rock ballady. This is not a bad thing in my view and at least now all your non-hard rock mates can see what all the fuss is about.
Great tunes for long car journeys with the stereo cranked singing your lungs out - my 3 kids love them too. Good, honest riff-based rock tunes with a Southern flavour - a fusion of AC/DC, Black Crowes, Zeppelin, etc. - just superb and with a modern twist.
Get it - you will not be dissapointed and if you get to see them live, even better - they are a class act. Having seen the lead singer take over from the drummer on the kit half way through a song who then came to the front to perform a solo on a mouth organ followed by a 10 minute drum solo during which he lost his sticks and finished it with his bare hands, they are a spectacle!!!!

I had heard some reasonable feedback from various acquaintances about this band. Then, on the strength of the reviews posted about this album, I decided to take a chance and buy it. What I heard on the album gave the impression of a bunch of pretend weekend rockers trying to be enthusiastically heavy. It was over contrived smooth nonsense. I certainly wasted my money.

This third release by the southern rockers is defiantly more mainstream than the previous 2 but has not fallen short of signature black stone cherry. The injection of groove cutting rock riffs holds the band to their signature southern sound with this third studio release.
The album has the catchy songs, the heavy rock songs and the rock ballad songs, it is everything and more you could want from black stone cherry, a great studio album. bring on the tour!

Having loved the first two albums, especially the second - Folklore and Superstition - i had high expectations. However, the writing is not as good and tracks like - Blame it on the boom boom - the lyrics in particular sound cheesy. Still some good tracks but a lot more hit and miss than previous efforts.

Ive seen Black Stone Cherry live twice and once performing with Nickleback. Yet another genius album. Its excellent to have such great hard rock tracks mixed with rock ballads. The ones I recommend to listen to are: Stay ,All Im dreamin' of, Like I roll. If you havent got it buy it. Once a fan youll be hooked.

It's Black Stone Cherry

Brilliant album. The heavy tracks are even heavier and the soft tracks are even more heart throbbing. A moving and brilliant album. Definitely worth a buy if you're already a fan of BSC, and if not it's a great example of some new music and true dirty rock n roll
