EDITORS’ NOTES

Black Stone Cherry's second album pushes the band’s Southern rock influences to the forefront, lacing their grinding, grungy songs with a down-home snarl. "Reverend Wrinkle" is scuffed-up boogie with a twangy edge, while lively organs add a mystical flair to the New Orleans-set rager "Devil's Queen." Better still is "Soulcreek," a rootsy rocker marked by campfire-jam gang harmonies, with vocalist Chris Robertson belting out the chorus as if he were leading a gospel choir.

Rock N Roll The Way Its Supposed To Be

Another great album by another great band. Listened through the album once. Maybe one or two songs im not sure about but I know it will grow on me. Just like all the great albums BSC the first album I wasnt sure about but had to listen to it a couple of times and then loved it. It is one of the few cds 2 years later I could still jam out to. One of the better bands I have seen live, saw them a couple weeks ago and going to see them again next month. If you get this cd you wont be disappointed. If you dont already have the first cd get it too. If you havent seen them live go see them. The power of this band live and on cd is amazing. You get your moneys worth out of anything involving Black Stone Cherry. If you get one make it the Special Edition which has 3 more songs.

Unique Band

I bought this album the day it came out and i wasn't dissapointed. Black Stone Cherry is a very original band and has thier own style. They incorporate their southern roots in their songs instead of the same ol' stuff mainstream rock bands come up with. They didn't change much from thier first album, which I like, but they kept to their same style of music which i love! Great album!!

Nice effort to move forward...one step at a time boys.

BSC deliver a very nice effort in taking their Kentucky Fried Rock into new areas. Their musicianship is progressing and they're exploring new sounds (ie. Long Sleeves, check out the organ Devil's Queen, Harmonica on The Key)...that is all good, but reggae+hard southern rock is a bit of a stretch (Sunrise). I agree that they are not as interesting when they go into "Nickelback rock ballad" mode. I am also not too keen on producers overdoing the choruses to make them sound like arenas, but the boys are playing some larger spaces these days(congrats!) and they are probably enjoying the attention...Blind Man, Rev. Wrinkle, Soul Creek, The Key, Long Sleeves, Devil's Queen all ROCK OUT...With Rage Against The Machine back, you gotta bring your hard hat to work every day boys! See ya' next time you swing by Louisville!
