Biography

Black Stone Cherry bridges the gap between the blue collar craftsmanship of dirty, bluesy, ballsy, pedal-to-the-metal Hard Rock steeped in the ancestral lineage of Southern Rock and the warm, broad embrace of the rock radio mainstream. There’s enough boot stomping, soulful meat-and-potatoes in the Kentucky band’s stew to invigorate Middle America, with the melodic chops to conquer ... Read more in Amazon's Black Stone Cherry Store

5.0 out of 5 stars They deliver yet again 20 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
So here we are, the second offering from Southern heavy rockers, Black Stone Cherry. I like the idea they came up with for this second album - it's clever and original.

So, has the so-called 'second album syndrome' affected these guys? No, not at all. Whilst I admit, they seem to have a more mainstream feel to some of their songs - 'Soulcreek', for example, with its 'Yeah, yeah' chorus, and the more radio-friendly ballads, such as 'Things My Father Said', 'Peace Is Free' and 'You'.

But it's not all acoustic/rock ballads. Not by any means. 'Blind Man' oozes hard rock throughout, and so does 'Please Come In', which has Led Zeppelin written all over it, but with a more mainstream chorus.

'Reverend Wrinkle' is a great track and is very much a Metal track. 'Soulcreek' is the type of track which would propel BSC into the mainstream market, without fully compromising their sound. It's a great song, and Chris Robertson's vocals are spot on. 'Things My Father Said' is a very poignant track and I think it's great. The good thing about this album, and I suppose it's what makes it better than the debut in a sense that it has more variety.

Track six is 'The Bitter End', which is Metal and nothing except that. It ebbs and flows, but a great song it is. Chris Robertson's vocals are majestic, a great track. Track seven is 'Long Sleeves'. It's poignant, but again focuses on the superstitional aspect of the album. Robertson sings 'my momma said to wear long sleeves'. The track itself is Metal, without a doubt. The riffs are great.

Track eight is 'Peace Is Free' and it is aimed for the mainstream market. A great uplifting track, an anthem, if you like. This is the variety that BSC have found within this second recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars Southern and Hard 24 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Southern and Hard Rock meet up for and albumful of great riffs, meaty guitars and great songs. If you liked the first album, you'll love this and the special edition is well worth having for the extra album's length of additional songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAN'T PUT A FOOT WRONG! 15 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
Folklore and Superstition [Special Edition]
Was blown away by their first album and Folklore and Superstition does exactly the same for me - every track's a winner - 'nuff said!
Spot the continuity error in their Blind Man video - the drummer's T-shirt changes from union jack to black in a lot of frames (or is it deliberate??) - apart from that they can't put a foot wrong!
Can't get enough of these guys - will see them in concert at Portsmouth Guildhall this Autumn so can't wait.
Roll on the next album.

5.0 out of 5 stars good rock album 10 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
Bought this cd after hearing the "Blind Man" single.
Glad i did, this album is one of my favourites of all time. Being a guitar player myself I found it very inspirational and it gave me a great kick in the butt. If you like tuned down rock music with very strong choruses then give these guys a listen!

4.0 out of 5 stars another top notch album 17 Aug 2008
By spike
Format:Audio CD
Black Stone Cherry are a breath of fresh air for southern rock in general and this second album is surely going to get them further notice as tracks like Blind man and the key is somthing Molly Hatchet would have written as they both have soul and feeling combined with the lovely harmonies of their guitars which speaks positive volumes for half of the album which are slightly let down by the average tracks in things my father said, peace is free and you.

I suppose they are still finding their feet but the future is bright and orange for a band whose playing in front of a live audience endeers them well to their fans as they often have plenty of meet and greets with those who paid to go and see them at merchandise stalls!

5.0 out of 5 stars BSC. 12 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Awesome follow up to their amazing debut. Great song writing and god-ly riffing. Catch 'em live if you can. I saw the drummer throw his sticks away and play a ten minute drum solo with his bare hands. Fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy follow-up to a fantastic debut 8 Dec 2008
By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kentucky's Black Stone Cherry's debut album, released in 2006, was absolutely fantastic - a breath of southern-fried fresh air with huge riffs, powerful vocals, sizzling guitar solos and wonderful melodies and, I'm pleased to say, their second album, 'Folklore & Superstition', pretty-much continues where their debut left off, apart from, perhaps, being (only very) slightly less heavy and maybe a tad more commercially-minded - I have to say that during the insanely catchy 'Soul Creek', they drift dangerously close to Bon Jovi territory, although Bon Jovi never sounded quite as heavy as this. It may be that this album suffers a little by comparison - the debut was an extremely hard act to follow - and yet, if you had never heard of Black Stone Cherry before, this particular album could be just as good an introduction to their music as the debut.

So, who do they sound like? Well, without wanting to sound facetious, they sound like themselves. Black Stone Cherry have enough of a varied sound and mixture of styles to allow themselves never really to be pigeon-holed into sounding like a copy of any one band. I suppose, during their heavier moments, they sometimes remind me of 'Vs.'-era Pearl Jam, without the downer lyrics or vocals, of course or perhaps even the first Audioslave album ('Long Sleeves', especially). The standout tracks, for me, are the storming 'Blind Man', the radio-friendly light and shade of 'Please Come In', the heavy-riffing dark-but-melodic metal of 'Reverend Wrinkle', the adrenaline rush of 'Devil's Queen' and, perhaps the best track on the album, 'Ghost Of Floyd Collins', which could easily be an Ozzy Osbourne classic.

Not quite as good as the first album, but still very good. Some tracks you just know will go down well at the festivals, and I look forwarsd to more of the same.
