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

Product Description

Product Description

The UK’s favourite Kentucky rockers, Black Stone Cherry are set to release their fourth studio album, Magic Mountain through Roadrunner Records. The album was produced by Joe Barresi (QOTSA, Soundgarden, Tool) at his Californian studio base. “A lot of rock music today doesn’t have any soul. It’s all really bland,” observes bassist Jon Lawhon. “There’s no attitude, no heart. We all grew up on ‘70s rock, Southern Rock, country music and bluesmen like Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters. On this album, more so than ever, those elements are all in the forefront.” The universal appeal and undeniable authenticity of Black Stone Cherry's rock anthems has won them an increasingly diverse and international fanbase (as evidenced by the #1 debut of ‘Folklore and Superstition’ on the UK’s rock album chart), converting unbelievers while playing huge arenas with rock royalty like Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Nickelback, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Alter Bridge. “We’ve made our fanbase the old school way,” Ben Wells notes. “Radio has supported us and we have really appreciated that, but it’s when people see us live that they really fall in love with us. We wanted that to come across with the sound of this album.” “We didn’t want to make a cookie cutter record and our label team and producer were down with that vision,” continues drummer John Fred Young. “We wanted to come out with our balls out and blow everyone away, so that’s what we did this time. There’s no holding back.” ‘Holding On…To Letting Go’, a stand-up-and-take-notice heavy rocker opens the album with bravado. ‘Runaway’ is probably the most mainstream track the band has ever written, yet still maintaining the heavy bite that is their signature. Barresi encouraged the band to let loose with the Ted Nugent-meets-Aerosmith vibe of ‘Fiesta Del Fuego,’ a personal favorite for Wells. Lead single, the gritty, bluesy ‘Me & Mary Jane’ is currently lighting up rock radio playlists and offering a taste of what’s to come. 2014 looks to be the year that Black Stone Cherry step it up once again and stake their claim on the big league.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holding On...To Black Stone Cherry!! 11 May 2014
By MarkP
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally, BSC's fourth has arrived and I was praying it was going to be better than the slightly disappointing 'Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea' - even though it contained some gems. Magic Mountain is twice as good as the third album; I was completely blown away by the monstrous first single 'Me And Mary Jane' which is definitely a contender for the best BSC song ever. Its catchy tune, great riffs, amazing vocals and mad drumming make it one of the best on the new album.

Best Tracks:

'Holding On...To Letting Go' - A great opener to the album. This song uses the Black Sabbath technique of swung quavers in a heavy rock song which is very effective and the screeching guitar solo is awesome.

'Peace Pipe' - Pure gold and an addictive chorus that you can't get out your head. The brilliant guitar work continues throughout the whole song with a strong bass line and, as in every track, the drumming will amaze you.

'Me And Mary Jane' - Genius

'Blow My mind' - This song contains the best riffs BSC has ever come up with along with a rocking verse and chorus.

'Sometimes' - The second and last ballad on the album and what a cracker! An outstanding vocal performance alongside pleasant acoustic guitar and passionate lyrics really gives this song some emotion.

'Dance Girl' - It has everything: a funky intro, electric sound effects and a classic duel guitar solo.

'Hollywood In Kentucky' - Just wow. This is exactly how Hollywood would be in Kentucky! It has a surpising yet tremendous ending that you have to listen to.

'Remember Me' - The longest track the Kentucky rockers have done; just over 6 minutes. It opens with a creepy electronic sound that pops up again in various points in the song.

Another brilliant album by Black Stone Cherry if you like their previous three albums then you'll love this one. As for the best song I'd have to say Me and Mary Jane.

By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I'm fairly new to the BSC world but this is great,a quite superb album,all the usual references are there that people have mentioned thru the reviews of their various releases,Sabbath/Zeppelin power and riffs,a touch of Southern rock and if i may,to my ears,i hear little nods to Masters of Reality circa the 'Blue Garden' disc.

There isnt really any weak moments here,most of the tracks have a groove of their own but combine catchy sing along choruses,such as 'Holding on to letting go' and 'Bad luck to hard love' while the excellent 'Peace Pipe' has a refrain with a commercial sheen that still rocks , the sort of level Bon Jovi could have reached had he got some dirt under his finger nails.

The rest stunning classic rock with the likes of single 'Me and Mary Jane' and 'Hollywood in Kentucky' holding the candle for Southern rock. Beast track,a close call but the Title track gets me every time..

A 5 star release,easily,if this doesnt take them to the top,nothing will.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bland Stone Cherry 13 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Oh dear, what's happened to BSC? I'm not sure how people can think this is 5 stars and up there with their first two albums - something has been lost or missing with this 4th release. Its not a bad album, just very average. The guitaring is decent but the melodies have gone and there's no real hook to any song. It's just a bit....boring. I just hope this grows with time but I'm not sure. A far cry from Folklore and Superstition :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Another cracking album 7 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Magic Mountain' is the fourth album by the Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry and the follow up to the highly successful 'Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea'

Positives:
I judge albums on a few criteria. Sound and Production, quality of songs, appeal and repeatability.
Black Stone Cherry have always used great producers and this album is no different. The album sounds fantastic. It's well mixed, loud, and consistent with the previously released material but also has a slightly retro feel that obviously comes from the bands wide range of southern and county influences. BSC have the right balance of a loud modern metal sound and vintage classic rock but don't suffer the problem of trying to be clones of bands of the 70s (cough cough Rival Sons) they have developed their own unique blended sound. The guitars in particular sound brilliant on this album. They're loud, fuzzy and squeal and pop like a true guitar should. They're not polished and compressed to death like you get with a Nickelback or Avenged Sevenfold album. They have room to breathe.

High quality written songs is what we have come to expect of BSC. We get a nice mix of heavy foot stompers, powerful ballads and county rockers. A lot of the songs relate to the troubles that Chris Robertson has been going through and that really gives them some strong meaning. Other songs are just about the good old stuff... smoking weed, drinking and getting laid. You can't go wrong with that! We get the expected big sing-along choruses and catchy riffs that will fit perfectly in with their previous material especially in the live setting. Highlights of the heavy songs for me include Holding On...to Letting Go, Never Surrender, Fiesta del Fuego and Dance Girl.
