Black Stone Cherry, Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea, 2011
Holy Cow! I don´t know on what diet these guys have been on, but it sure did them some serious good. I liked the first record but never got the next one (that is, if I am not mistaken). This baby is kicking some serious ass though! Like The Black Crowes on steroids or Alter Bridge if you like.
So the boys have upped their game and delivered a monster of an album. Great songs, with melodies that you will whistle for days. Intense delivery from all parties involved here. I am having trouble finding the right words to describe what impact this album has. Heavy yet catchy, in your face yet full of emotion. It actually seems pretty pointless to delve into this much further. This is a must buy for anyone into quality hard rock. Firmly rooted in the seventies, with a modern sound that still breathes and chock full of irresistible hooks. The hammer!
