It's another Kevin Shirley production, and to be honest of you've heard the Deep Purple remixes and other BCC albums that's probably all you need to know! But what you really ought to know is that it's 180g vinyl, crystal clear and has a massive oomph; plus the packaging as on the other BCC vinyl versions is gorgeous - just like the 70s all over again. As far as the music goes is this the best they've done individually or together? I love this LP, buy it on vinyl and hear Joe's 335 and Les Pauls as they're meant to sound.

Another great album from the now established BCC. Glenn Hughes is in fine form on this album and how can he not be with three backing musicians like these? If you've enjoyed the first two you'll love this

It`s the perfect cobination between american and england`s hard rock. This third album of BCC consolidadtes then as a band that meets the the perfection in composition an execution. Listen it from the top to the bottom. All tracks are great.

Old School Rock and Roll 31 Oct 2012
By Michael Rampa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Legendary producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley put the rock guts back into Rush in the 1980s when they started to get too keyboard and synth oriented. Guitarist Alex Lifeson was asked to ditch the reverb and Neal Peart the electric drums. The problem being addressed was strikingly clear and indicative of the Eighties. "The songs had no "balls," Shirley said. "They were thin so I was hell bent on making a heavy record." No such issue befalls his Black Country Communion project. The Anglo/American hybrid is unfairly stacked with talent even by supergroup standards. With Zeppelin, Sabbath and Deep Purple in its bloodline, their latest release "Afterglow" (out Oct. 30) is all balls; blunt force blues/rock trauma from both sides of the ocean. Fellow Brits Jason Bonham and Glenn Hughes combine forces with guitar legend in the making Joe Bonamassa and Dream Theater's Derek Sherinian for a hard rocking experience rarely seen since its golden age in the early Seventies.

Like its predecessors, the 11 track compilation starts out with a bang and then keeps exploding for another 53 minutes as Bonham channels his inner Zeppelin alongside Hughes' massive vocals and Bonamassa's scorching Les Paul.
It's difficult to label BCC. Part English, part American, blistering rock and hardcore blues. It doesn't really matter how they are categorized. If you're looking for a classic hard rock experience, there is no need to sort through your vinyl collection.

This band IS Rock & Roll! 1 Nov 2012
By The Hermit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In a popular music world of Lady Gaga's and other musical crud, these guys continue to keep REAL Rock & Roll alive, and for that we are grateful! This cd rocks in every sense, from the first song "Big Train", to the last "Crawl", each song has more contrast than even ther previous 2 statements. Congrats to Kevin, Glenn, Joe, Jason and Derek for another outstanding release, and please, please guys- continue to create rock music in a seemingly dying musical genre. This cd isn't leaving my car player for a long while!(Shame on the reviewer / punter with 1 star, indeed!)

Favorite Effort from BCC. 30 Oct 2012
By P. A. Reese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Now, this is what I am talking about. Best effort yet. Glad to see these guys moving forward. When they first came out, I thought it was just gonna be a one off deal. I was hoping they would work together more. So this is there third effort. While I liked there first two efforts, they just never left the mark for me. I knew that these heavyweight players hard more to offer. Afterglow puts them over the edge.
I have been following Glen Hughes since the early 80's. Jason, was first introduced to me through his band Bonham and the song Wait For You. Joe I have been following for the last few years, and while he has never took me by storm, he has always captured my attention. This last year has been very good for Joe musician wise.
Afterglow, to me, has captured the element they have been chasing. By that, I mean all these artists these days are wanting create that 70's atmosphere. To be able to do that in this modern age and get fans (new and old) to be able to buy into it, is tuff.
If I could give this 4 1/2 stars I would. Again, Joe's vocals are missed. The guys has a great voice and compliments Glenn very well. As can be heard on Cry Freedom. On the second effort we heard more of Joe. Would have liked to again, but to be fair, Joe probably likes just being able to focus on playing guitar. I would give a breakdown of the songs, but I am not. I seem to favor the later half of this release. There playing as individuals shine on this all over the place and will be jamming this out in the truck for abit. Again, best effort yet and excited to keep listening.

BCC best band in the world! 18 Nov 2012
By Bela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been listening to Glenn Hughes since Trapeze. I loved when he was in Deep Purple.
Burn is one of the best hard rock albums of all time! I think he has one of the best
voices in rock history. His songwriting is so diverse between hard rock funk blues
that nobody can touch him. His music history should be as big as anybody in rock n roll.
It's ashame more people don't know him. Joe Bonamassa really is extrodinary as usual.
I hear so many Gary Moore influences in his style and playing but maybe that's just me.
Bonham and Sherdian are awesome as well and the band gels so well together. The fact
they recorded this live and in a few days is amazing. It would be ashame if BCC doesn't
record another album as rumors are they have broken up as Hughes and Bonamassa seem to
be having a war that Bonamassa is spending too much time on solo career which I agree.
How many people get to be in this situation? he could do both but BCC should be his
first priority or just do the solo thing. BCC should be touring and promoting album.
Music this good shouldn't go to waste! come on Bonamassa your the luckest guy on the planet!
