This must be the best rock album since the great nine lives album by aerosmith. This album rocks with the best of them. stand out tracks are Ridin', whisky in the morning, porno star and fall. The guitar work by Yogi and Keith Nelson is just as good as Slash And Izzy/Gilby from GNR. Josh Todd Can Kick the asses off any other singer, his vocals on this album are just as good if not better than there debut album.
All the song's on this album should be in the top 10. This is a must buy for any GNR, Skid Row, Kiss Fan. Rock N Roll at its best!!!!!!

Buckcherry's second album "Timebomb" is considered a tragedy in the rock scene. Rarely does a band follow up a great debut album with a second LP even better, Buckcherry did just that with "Timebomb" in 2001. However the album's poor sales performance led to the band being dropped by their label and splitting up for 5 years, as it was released in the midst of the Nu-metal Rap-rock craze of the earlier '00s.

All was not lost. The turmoil which the band went through after seeing an album they frequently referred to as their 'baby' completely ignored by the mainstraim ensured that when the band surprisingly reformed in 2005 they returned with their career-highlight third album ("15").

The thing which makes "Timebomb" such a rock tragedy is that the LP is actually superior to the band's great debut album in every aspect. The rock rock's harder, the ballads are stronger, the songwriting is more rounded, and the band have been able to shake off listeners who tried to pigeonhole them as a 'cock rock' band or label them the next Guns N' Roses, Motley Crue or or any other artist. The truth is, the reason people tried so desperately to label Buckcherry is that their sound is so different to anything else out (even now, in 2011). It's straight ahead rock n' roll. It's not materialistic like Motley Crue. It's not quite as brash or frightning as early Guns N' Roses, nor is it as 'massive' as GN'Rs later material. It's not cheesy like Bon Jovi, and it's not one dimensional like AC/DC. Buckcherry is like all those bands crashing into eachother.

Standout tracks on this album include the ferocious Whiskey In The Morning, the instant classic Slammin', the anthemic Ridin', and the surprisingly ambitious Segue.

This will go down as one of THE most under-rated albums in rock history. Buckcherry took a great debut album in 1999 and built upon it, creating a far superior follow-up LP but unfortunately for them, the rock scene of the time was far more concerned with Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park to notice. It wasn't until 2005 when the band returned with the magnificent "15" that they (and "Timebomb") began getting picked up by rock listeners who were kicking themselves at what they'd almost missed out of forever. Was it worth almost losing one of the rock scene's brightest mainstream rock bands of the last two decades? Possibly... Without the turmoil suffered and the breakup following the obvious disappointment that their 'baby' had been ignored, I highly doubt Buckcherry would have pushed themselves so hard on their third album.

"Timebomb" is a classic, underrated, straight out rock record which will appeal to fans of uncompromising rock n' roll.

When you thought nu-metal and rap was taking over the world, Buckcherry have exploded our eardums with the long-awaited follow up to their debut masterpiece album. Tracks such as Frontside, Ridin and Slammin epitimise what rock is about, and these tracks are balance well by Segue and You; softer ballads. A MUST BUY FOR ALL ROCK FANS!

After I heard buckcherry described as 'the new guns n' roses', I was more than mildly impressed, guns... being my favourite band ever. Their first album was meant to be great so I listened to a few tracks and loved them. This one is even better though. The first single, ridin, is fantastic, and shows exactly what the album is like. The best track is whiskey in the morning, which is an absolute classic. However there are such tracks like time bomb and slit my wrists to back these tracks up, which show joshua todd as a more than competent rock vocalist. This band is very similar to backyard babies, who are also bring out some cracking music, and I totally recommend this album.

I caught 30 seconds of Buckcherry performing 'Nasty' on a MTV special tribute to Janet Jackson last week.Those 30 seconds were enough to prompt me into purchasing this amazing album.The last record I bought that contained so many fantstic songs was G&R Appetite For Destruction.This is every bit as good.There are no album 'fillers' on offer here.Every song is an absolute joy! I have already ordered their self titled debut album and can't wait til it arrives. Rock Music Lives!!!!!!

You know when an album comes along - like, for example, Turbonegro's Apocalypse Dudes or Motley Crue's Too Fast For Love - and there're no huge hit singles on it but it's just incredibly strong and consistent throughout, and you realise you can listen to it from start to finish without ever feeling any desire to touch the "skip track" button?

Well, make no mistake, this is one of THOSE albums. An absolutely storming rock album - while the vocals aren't as melodic as on 15 and the hits not as big as Crazy Bitch or Lit Up, the album as a whole is the best thing Buckcherry have ever done. If you don't own this, you're missing out on one of the best rock albums you will ever hear, so, between you and me, I think you'd better get on that right away.

Brilliant album with Loadsa great songs on it, the only drawback is some of the songs cut off as you get to the end of them, doesn't do it on the cd so something is messed with the mp3 but if you can handle that them get it

Fantastic CD, been after it for a while. Great artwork. I highly recommend it to any fans of the more recent Buckcherry albums (15, Black Butterfly, All Night Long)

The first album was great. Lots of great riffs in a Janes Addition/AC/DC mode making it a must have. A shame that 'time bomb' is such a pale comparison being a virtual rerun without the songs. It's not bad by any means its just too, well samey. It opens well enough with 'frontside' and the best track 'place in the sun' but by the half way mark it just gets well,tedious and the dull acoustic closer 'fall' just doesn't work. Maybe if i'd heard this first i would think differently but it seems Buck Cherry are like a lot of heavy rock bands and capable of only one top notch album.
