Black Label Society...Are You Sure?!,
This review is from: Hangover Music Vol. VI (Audio CD)
From the very first song you can tell this isn't typical BLS. It's not as edgy as previous releases, 'Sonic Brew' and 'Stronger Than Death' for example. However even with that said the album still has bags and bags of class, Zakk Wylde (Lead) shows that he has a deeper, emotional, passionate side and this flows through all of the songs. Each song on this album blows apart the misconception that BLS only do HEAVY. There is alot of variety on this album, stand-out tracks:- the beautiful 'Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow'and 'Once More' and at the heavier end (considering the nature of the album)'Damage Is Done', 'Crazy Or High' and 'House Of Doom'
All in all this is a spectacular album, providing you approach it in the right manner. Don't expect the 'normal' BLS. Imagine 'The Blessed Hellride' crossed with Zakk Wylde's 'Book Of Shadows' and then some and you get the picture.
I've had this CD for 3hrs, I've played it back to back since, it's a warm, touching album that will strike a chord with anyone, most of us can relate to the content. Give it a chance and it could (SHOULD) become one of your most prized possesions.
This isn't just an album for die hard BLS fans - It's for anyone who'll give it the time, once you give it the time you'll discover it as the true genius it is.
