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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Folklore and Superstition, the new Black Stone Cherry album, has blues and southern vibes written all over it. Although it's completely different from their first heavier self-tilted album that was released back in 2006, it still delivers a new refreshing look into the world of modern southern rock as well as firmly sticking to their roots.

"Soulcreek" is one of their more melodic and soulful tracks that encompasses everything Black Stone Cherry stand for, Soulful heart-pounding rock. Although, there's a massive difference between their two albums, it can't fail to impress the hardcore BSC fans as well as the newly hooked ones.

"Peace is Free" is by far the most anthemic song on the album. Other songs include "The Bitter End", "Devil's Queen" and "Please Come" as well as many other heart bursting tracks.

All in all, this album is killer. It's amazing, with a capital A. Black Stone Cherry have once again excelled themselves even if it is a completely different vibe from the first album.
