The Second World War's version of 'Glory' {Broderick, Denzel Washington, Freeman - 54th Massachusetts], albeit a shade more glossy and predictable. Never the less, enjoyable enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, in patches, not great.............., 25 Jun. 2014

Sorry, it is a bit of a let down. I really liked Black Country Communion & was expecting progression. Unfortunately a few of the tracks sound like BCC outtakes. Someone raving about this album said the tunes were uncluttered by the keybounds often used on the BCC albums, I disagree. A few of the tracks would have benefitted by some keyboard input & given the whole piece a bit more variety. Bonham's drumming is mostly excellent however. I've persevered with this album for weeks, but it just isn't growing on me like the BCC stuff {& I'm no big Joe Bonamassa fan}. A powerhouse trio - Cream it isn't! Influences of Led Zep & Purple are evident, as in BCC, but there are no memorable songs. Just about 3 stars out of 5 at the most! {I think the new Rival Sons album will knock this for six!}

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good third album from this very talented supergroup of musicians. Like their two previous outings, most of the songs grow o, 18 Dec. 2012

Like their two previous outings, most of the songs grow on you and the album generally gets stronger with repeated plays. There's not a duff track on the album, but 'Confessor', 'Midnight Sun' & 'Common Man' stand out. 'The Giver' & 'Big Train' are also very strong and not far behind. Unfortunately there's not a track as 'epic'/outstanding as 'Song of Yesterday' {BCC's 'Stairway'....} from the 1st album, but several come pretty close. If you want modern mature rock, not necessarily always 'hard', with shades of Bad Company, Deep Purple, Led Zep, the Who, mixed in with their own particular sound, brilliantly constructed and superbly played and sung, then BCC are a band I recommend. Jason Bonham and Joe Bonamassa are particularly outstanding and Glen Hughes and Derek Sherinian are no slouches either! A 4 star performance, as are both the previous albums {my 5 stars are few and far between!}
