... because listening to this album is like falling through one back to the 1970s. It is like rummaging through your old music collection and finding an album you bought back then, and then put away and never played, until now. If you were fortunate enough to grow up during the 70s and 80s and loved rock, then my god you are going to love this. Just when you thought that you'd heard all the great rock from your youth that there was to be heard, this comes along. I don't mean this is in any way dated - far from it. It is fresh and vibrant, but it is also just SO of that era. I am 16 again.

Glenn Hughes will be 60 this year. I hope I'm in as good shape when I get there. The power and range in his voice is incredible, no hint whatsoever of it beginning to fade.

Joe on guitar is, as usual, stunning. The whole band is.

I won't bore you with more track by track analysis. This is just spine tingling, ear splitting rock. You need to listen to it. A very worthy second album. Fantastic.

Producer Kevin Shirley and Black Country Communion have returned with a brilliant follow-up album to 2010's eponymous debut album. The new album "2" kicks off with vintage classic rock will balls in "The Outsider" - an epic tour de force that touches on just about every rock genre you can think of, including prog rock keyboards, circa Yes and Deep Purple, courtesy of former Dream Theater keyboardist, Derek Sherinian.

Track 2 "Man in the Middle" is a gut crunching rock guitar riff with a low bass end threatm which doesn't let up for a single minute. The album flows with non-stop classic riffs and superb musicianship.

Stand out tracks include the Zepplinesque "Save Me", which originally started off as a riff that Jason Bonham came up with after the he played drums at the Led Zeppelin reunion at the London o2 Arena in 2007.

Joe Bonamassa's guitar playing is impeccable throughout, however, the shining star of the album is Glenn Hughes, former Deep Purple "Burn" singer and bassist, who evokes some of the best rock vocals so far this decade. He sings in leaps and bounds, displays real emotional gusto and makes you believe that rock and roll will live forever.

But it's the closer on the album "Cold" that really hits home with it's emotional and heartfield golden rock gods moment.

If there's one classic rock album to own this year, Black Country Communion's "2" has to be the one.

I took wasn't overly impressed when i reviewed BCC'S debut(i stand by every word),it was overated and rushed,overlong with some tracks probably in need of some more work,however this is the business,Hughes has reigned in some of his over elaborate singing and puts in a consumate performance here,as do all the band members,its great to hear Sherinian get a more prominent role.

As a disc this is head and shoulders above the debut(which was ok in parts), this rocks from start to finish and will be in your CD player for months,standout tracks 'Outsider' and 'Save Me'.

A superb release which can justifiably be looked upon as an album of the year contender,well done lads,cant wait for the gigs.

Okay, now we're getting there! The first BCC album was good but there was a lot of songs that could have been on a Glenn Hughes solo album and others that were a bit too "jamming" and hurried up.
With BCC 2, we get a BAND ALBUM. Songs that neither belong more exclusevily to Hughes or Bonamassa or Bonham but to A BAND, and where we can certainly hear more of the great Sherinian (he was barely there on the debut album). Although the general feel leans more towards a Zep style (apparently that's what Shirley was aiming for while recording the drums), it also features brilliant Deep Purple touches (The Outsider is Burn's little cousin) and bluesy feelings.
Glenn singing is more in control (he can sometimes overdue on his solo albums), Bonamassa's playing and singing is great (even if he always sounds to me as a bit of a poor man's Hughes-not so much on this album!), Bonham is heavy and but very groovy.
The songs are mostly darker and mid-tempo, the band is tight, the playing precise and intense;
the keyboards solos and arrangements are incredibly tasteful.
This album comfirms to me that the debut BCC was only a blueprint and that the best was yet to come...Well here it is!

Won't bore you by repeating what has already been said, but this album is a vast improvement on BCC1. They do seem to be playing more as a unit than a bunch of musicians who have come together to record an album, but I still feel that their output isn't as good as the standing of the members of the band would suggest it should be. Egos clashing or too many ideas who knows, but it doesn't quite do it for me. I'm a fan of Joe Bonamassa and for me his last album is a much better listen, as is most of his recent output. That aside it has lots of energy, but it is nowhere near my list of top albums of the last twelve months

The most frequently played CD in my collection has just been replaced, but by its follow-up. I loved BCC 1, but BCC 2 (being very careful not to type "BBC")completely blows it away. While the former had some great songs interspersed with some so-so ones, every one of the songs on the new album is a belter.

Much was made in the interviews about how much they enjoyed rushing the first album, how things sounded live and spontaneous as a result, but that never rang true. The production, musicianship and, most importantly, songs on this one have stepped up several notches.

There is, again, a distinct 1970s feel to the album, which is no bad thing in my eyes. Cynics, of which I count myself as one, could call it a little bit derivative and unoriginal, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. That sound was great, so roll with it. Besides, if anyone has the right to chuck out Deep Purple and Led Zep style music, a former DP member and the son of a Led Zep one certainly can stake that claim. On only two songs is that really obvious - the opener The Outsider, whose guitar/Hammond call and response interplay could have been taken from any DP album, although the riff is not particularly Blackmore style, and Save Me, an unquestionable and unashamed tip of the hat to Jason Bonham's dad's band, but a great song in its own right. The rest of the songs have their own BCC style, perhaps similar in style to a mix of Hughes' Soul Mover album and, to a lesser degree, Bonamassa's You And Me, but heavier than both.

Significantly, keyboard wiz Derek Sherinian is no longer an also-ran in the production. Buried in the mix on almost all songs on the first album, he is brought much more to the fore on several songs, and they benefit from it. The overall sound of this album is rounder, more complete.

Summing it all up, and I mean this with no exaggeration whatsoever, this is the best album I have bought in the last 30 years.
