EDITORS’ NOTES

With a rough-and-ready mix of raw guitar power, shuffling grooves, and epic ballads, Blackberry Smoke's fifth album proves that they’re the most earnest heirs to Southern rock royalty like Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers. Every track glows with the warmth of ‘70s AOR—from the half-stack growl of “Waiting for Thunder” and sly dirge of “What Comes Naturally,” to richly harmonized ballads like “Sunrise in Texas.” The set closes with a guest appearance from Gregg Allman himself.

Can't wait for this...

If the rest of the album is half as greazy and funky as "Believe you me" I will wear this f#%*er out!

Generic Southern Rock Sound??

More like 1975 Lynyrd Skynyrd meets 1990 Black Crowes!
Nothing generic about it!

Honest music by one of the hardest working bands.

These guys just know how to write good music. Whether you want to call them country, rock, southern rock, it doesn't matter. Their songs tell great stories and are played from the heart. If only they could get some radio time so more people could enjoy some good music, played with real instruments. The 2 songs available show how they can rock and then add a little boogie into the mix. Give it a try and I guarantee you will want to then purchase all their previous efforts. Can't wait for the October release. Keep up the good work gents!
