After a five year hiatus Buckcherry are back with “15,” (2006) the band’s third album.
“15″ doesn’t sound like a radical departure from the band’s self-titled debut (1999) or “Time Bomb” (2001). It’s the same mix of Guns N’ Roses, Black Crows, and AC/DC that so defined the band’s first two albums. Founding members Keith Nelson (guitar) and Josh Todd (vocals) are in their element and do what they do best-meat-and-potatoes, kick-ass rock n’ roll.
“15″ isn’t terribly challenging or revolutionary, but if you’re not looking for Rush or Axl’s upcoming epic and merely want an old-school album that rocks, “15″ will do the trick.
