A great rock CD,
This review is from: Black Butterfly (Audio CD)
Buckcherry are one of those (unfortunately) rare bands that can still make a great album, which draws on a mixture of southern rock (think Black Crowes crossed with Guns 'n' Roses), but still sounds modern.
While, like most bands, they ultimately suffer from comparisions to their earlier albums (their first being their best), this is still great stuff. Rescue Me, Tired of You, and Too Drunk are great rock tracks, but they can do more than that. Dreams and Rose reveal a slightly softer sound, but still with plenty of guitars, but Don't Go Away is a song that bands like Aerosmith and Def Leppard would love to release themselves.
It isn't a perfect album obviously, Talk to Me suffers from a poor opening in particular, but lets not split hairs, no rock fan (hell, no proper music fan!) in 2008 should leave this page without adding this CD to their basket.
Overall, this is an awesome CD, from a rare breed of true rock bands.
