      Disadvantages

      Overall superb

      Surprisingly, Black Stone Cherry have been together since 2001 where they formed in Kentucky USA, yet since that time they have only gained fame and recognition in the last three to four years following the release of their self titled album Black Stone Cherry in 2006, which, also surprisingly only reached number 90 in the US charts.

      Being accustomed to Southern Rock and following in the footsteps of John Fred Young's father from the Kentucky Headhunters, the album, despite being the bands own, individual work, is an outright display of raw, untouched, 'Jack Daniel's' style rock. The mind-blasting heavy rock/metal riffs burst through your ear drums at an impressively raucous rate, the cymbol clashes resound in your ears and the bass is meaty and rhythmic. Yet, despite already being hooked, nothing can prepare you for Chris Robertson's raw, brash and gruff vocals. Never have I heard a rocker with such a powerful set of lungs.

      The album opens with the previously released single Rain Wizard, and then takes you on an emotional journey of heartbeating, heart warming and heartbreaking melodies, rhythm, and fiery noise all neatly but explosively packaged into 53.02 minutes. Particular highlights are 'Maybe Someday' and the incredible Yardbirds cover 'Shapes of Things'. This has to be one of my all time favourite albums, and is one that I can listen to over and over again. Not only that but it is fantastic to let all your emotions rip and sing to it at the top of your lungs whilst driving alone. Just don't tell anyone I admitted to that! Overall superb!
