So here we are, the second offering from Southern heavy rockers, Black Stone Cherry. I like the idea they came up with for this second album - it's clever and original.

So, has the so-called 'second album syndrome' affected these guys? No, not at all. Whilst I admit, they seem to have a more mainstream feel to some of their songs - 'Soulcreek', for example, with its 'Yeah, yeah' chorus, and the more radio-friendly ballads, such as 'Things My Father Said', 'Peace Is Free' and 'You'.

But it's not all acoustic/rock ballads. Not by any means. 'Blind Man' oozes hard rock throughout, and so does 'Please Come In', which has Led Zeppelin written all over it, but with a more mainstream chorus.

'Reverend Wrinkle' is a great track and is very much a Metal track. 'Soulcreek' is the type of track which would propel BSC into the mainstream market, without fully compromising their sound. It's a great song, and Chris Robertson's vocals are spot on. 'Things My Father Said' is a very poignant track and I think it's great. The good thing about this album, and I suppose it's what makes it better than the debut in a sense that it has more variety.

Track six is 'The Bitter End', which is Metal and nothing except that. It ebbs and flows, but a great song it is. Chris Robertson's vocals are majestic, a great track. Track seven is 'Long Sleeves'. It's poignant, but again focuses on the superstitional aspect of the album. Robertson sings 'my momma said to wear long sleeves'. The track itself is Metal, without a doubt. The riffs are great.

Track eight is 'Peace Is Free' and it is aimed for the mainstream market. A great uplifting track, an anthem, if you like. This is the variety that BSC have found within this second recording.

Firstly I would just like to say that this is the first Black Stone Cherry album I have owned. I've known about the band for a number of years and have finally decided to get my hands on one of their albums. So please bare in mind this review comes from a newcomer to the band.

Back in 2008 I happened to catch these guys at the Download festival. I had never heard of them until this, the set was fun and lively and they put on a really good show. Later again I happened to catch two of their songs on YouTube as I was browsing around. These were 'Blind Man' and 'Things My Father Said'. I enjoyed both of these songs but time passed and I never gave them a second thought.

A few weeks back I was browsing through some local live shows and up pops Black Stone Cherry. I love live music and I love this type of band so I thought I'd go and catch them when they came to my city. Not wanting to go into the gig completely ignorant of the music, I thought I'd pick up an album to get familiar with them. I chose 'Foklore and Superstition' just because it had the only two songs I could remember from years before.

As a rock guitar album it's not too bad. The songs can be quite enjoyable, there are some good guitar riffs here. Chris Robertsons vocals are top notch and extremely powerful. 'Blind Man' still is a favourite of mine, its energetic and does get me singing along when it comes on.

Unfortunately most of the songs, though enjoyable, for me are very forgettable. I found the songs began to bleed into one another and I could never distinguish between most of them. And although the vocals are extremely powerful, lyrically the songs aren't amazing. It feels like at times the lyrics were thrown into the song right at the end with not much thought.

Black Stone Cherry are a breath of fresh air for southern rock in general and this second album is surely going to get them further notice as tracks like Blind man and the key is somthing Molly Hatchet would have written as they both have soul and feeling combined with the lovely harmonies of their guitars which speaks positive volumes for half of the album which are slightly let down by the average tracks in things my father said, peace is free and you.

I suppose they are still finding their feet but the future is bright and orange for a band whose playing in front of a live audience endeers them well to their fans as they often have plenty of meet and greets with those who paid to go and see them at merchandise stalls!

Musically this album is excellent. Lyrically it is quite the opposite. I am guessing these rockers originate from southern USA as the album has a Hill Billy-esque rock element to it, also in regards to the lyrics God, Jesus and love are ranked quite highly in the list of topics sung about. As a religion-less Brit I find it quite hard to relate to the soppy, sentimental drivel this band tend to come out with. Therefore, if like me I recommend you imagine they are singing in a foreign language and concentrate on the music. Another irritating point to raise is the constant reference to the Iraq war. This topic has been done to death and quite frankly I find it a bit vulgar and a lot boring! However, the lead singers voice is incredibly - stony, gravely, smoke 40 Marlboro's a day-ly.

I have given this album three stars because musically it is extremely enjoyable, especially the song Sunrise (my personal favourite). If you can over look this bands flaw you will be rewarded - however, if you are extremely anti-American I recommend you pop this CD back into its case and purchase some Rage Against the Machine.
