5.0 out of 5 stars Real rock is back, 1 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea (Audio CD)
It's impossible to imagine BSC getting any better. With this album they are touching perfection as a rock band. Just a quick note for anyone under thirty: the term `rock' as applied to music does not include My Chemical Romance, Fallout Boy, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters or any other derivative pop act about as edgy and innovative as a chipshop meal. Just listen to BSC to truly grasp this. The only other current contender I can think of for such a potent blend of power and melody is Wolfmother (Halestorm is primarily a metal outfit, otherwise they too might bear comparison). Just think Shinedown on steroids.

I'd approached `Between ..' with considerable trepidation, given the daunting legacy of the previous two titanic albums After all, anyone who's ever heard `Things my father said' is fully aware that BSC is a band endowed with great depth and versatility - a very high standard that's hard to maintain. However I was more than pleasantly blown away. Every track here is a gem, brimming over with that trademark snarling, growling guitar wall of sound bolstering consistently magnificent songs of exceptional range. Every time I hear `Between ..' it sounds special, because it is. It seems unfair to single out any tracks but `Can't you see' could be the foot-stomping killer, as majestic as `Rollin' on', closely followed by `Killing floor' and `Let me see you shake'.

Black Stone Cherry are the real deal, a 21st century classic, and `Between the devil and the deep blue sea' consolidates their deserved reputation as such.

An informative review, Mr Briggs. I would argue, though, that Alter Bridge are at least the equal of BSC (actually, I think that they are even better) and so if you are not familiar with their work I would recommend them to you.

Thank you for the review, however; I have ordered my copy of 'Between...' today.

Alterbridge are nowhere near the musicianship of BSC, at best they are just a glorified Nu-rock band and thats it!
