Outstanding Debut Album,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Country Communion (Audio CD)Having received the CD and DVD at 10:30AM on the day of release I've now listened to all the tracks twice over. I got a preview listening to the special live concert broadcast on the UK's Planet Rock radio station the night before.
What comes over is the pace at which the whole set was laid down (4 days) and then mixed in it's entirety over the next 10 days. Because of this it sounds pure like rock albums of the early 70s, not self indulgent or difficult to fathom.
Glenn Hughes vocals are fabulous and he has that special powerful rock voice ideally suited to the band. His bass is a superb complement to Jason Bonham's heavy and full drumming.
Derek Sherinian plays Hammond and Korg keyboards and adds a sense of old Purple feel to the mix.
Joe Bonnamassa has been able to change from being a blues legend to a hard rock god with ease and plays some superb riffs and then comes out with some brilliant solos especially in Beggarman and Song of Yesterday.
If you are a fan of Purple, Zeppelin, Free you will not go wrong buying this great CD.
