Black Country Communion have produced an excellent album of classic rock which has been eagerly bought up by the fans, but unfortunately it seems that may prove to be their swansong rather than the takeoff which they deserve. Joe Bonamassa's guitar talents which have been tirelessly honed with hours of practice and live shows come to the fore on this album and combine deliriously with the unique vocal stylings and folk tinged bass playing of Glenn Hughes, alongside Jason Bonham's dynamic drumming and Derek Sherinian's techincal wizardry on the keyboards. However, it seems that Joe's prodigious output with his solo work means that they will be unable to tour this album. Indeed the lyrics on this album largely derive from the pen of Glenn Hughes and have been revised accordingly in the studio by the band, so it could be said that the album is a solo album with special guests. However, despite its' disparate birth this is a cohesive album which deserves to be hear by any fan of classic rock.
