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.

As a Black Stone Cherry fan I just don't have the heart to give them less than 3 stars.

That might not make sense and I agree it is a strange thing to say, let me explain. I have been a big BSC fan since I took a chance on their first album. I couldn't wait for their second album Folklore and superstition and it didn't disappoint. It is my favourite album by them and one of my favourites in my collection. The 'difficult' third album then, or maybe not so difficult for BSC. Another great album although maybe straying from the raw southern rock feel that they had originally....

Now to Magic Mountain. I'm afraid I just can't get into it. I wanted to like it but it just doesn't work for me. I'm not sure why, they seem to have lost their original sound in this album and the songs seem a bit disjointed to me.

Not a bad effort but the overall CD is not a lot different from a lot of other post 'Nirvana' West coast bands, flooding the market with the same old, same old riffs, and hooks, and lead singer melodies. But if that rocks your boat then undoubtedly you will enjoy this offering from this particular band. On the other hand if you like something a bit different from the current crop of 'Heavy Man', then dig out the old Black Sabbath/Led Zep stuff and relisten to some of the old magical moments.

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.

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.

Fantastic album!!!!!
Often when buying a new album there may be a few you really like and a few "meh" tracks. With this album, it is not the case. Each and every song has a strong sense of emotion and thought put into it. Chris Robertson's voice is still outstanding with no loss of power, however I will say that this album is slightly different to the previous ones (much like "All Hope Is Gone-Slipknot 2008) and again both albums although different than their predecessors are simply masterpieces. Songs like "Me and Mary Jane", "Magic Mountain", "Fiesta Del Fuego" and "Holding On To Letting Go" are a few of the highlights, with another different, more mellow country number (Hollywood in Kentucky- BTW great live ;) ) still proving to be an amazing song. In short, just buy it.
