This review is from: Magic Mountain (MP3 Download)
As a huge BSC fan, I was somewhat disappointed by their 3rd album - Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Thankfully, Magic Mountain is a fantastic return to form. The production is superb and John Fred Young's amazing drumming has been brought back to full caveman, John Bonhamesque spec after being on the last CD. The guitars have been turned another notch and the solos are better than ever.
From the opening track, the huge riffs and gravelly vocals let you know you're in for a ride and it just doesn't quit. Some of the riffing is simply sublime, especially in the amazing Never Surrender. This is good time hard rock of the very highest order. Yes it doesn't break the mould, yes it's similar to their previous offerings but quite frankly, when I stick on a BSC record I know what I'm getting and I'm getting something I love.
If you're a fan of hard rock music with a southern vibe and some fantastically catchy melodies and riffs, then don't hesitate, buy this album.
