Description

On this debut album from Kentucky born BLACK STONE CHERRY you can hear their influences including Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Black Sabbath, but also a heavy side touching more in a Black Label Society vein. The track ”Lonely Train” is gaining traction at radio. The track is produced by Richard Young of the Kentucky Headhunters, who is also the father of drummer John Fred Young. With songs about moonshine smuggling, rain wizards and women, how can you go wrong?

  • I’d give it a 6 if I could. Been waiting for this CD for a long time and I am far from disappointed. This is one group that knows, respects and acknowledges their influences, from Skynyrd to AC/DC and Zeppelin, but doesn’t attempt to copy them. Instead they pick up where these groups left off and carry on the tradition of great sounding rock and roll with an edge! The musicianship, vocals, production values and sound on this album are tremendous, and they should be given this group’s relationship with the Grammy award winning Kentucky Headhunters. No doubt having that kind of experience and professionalism on the boards really helped make their debut CD the fantastic, solid, straight ahead rock and roll masterpiece it is. Now they have to be able to approximate or beat that sound live….and I have little doubt they can do just that. Black Stone Cherry joins such groups as Brand New Sin and the Rebel Pride band in helping to establish a new Golden Age of Rock and Roll!
    Now if only they’d get their butts up here to Columbus Ohio.

  • i saw these guys early this summer, and bought the cd the day it came out. although i’m in my mid twenties, i don’t care for anything new- i think the newest band i listen to and really like i saliva’s later non-rappy stuff. i was stuck listening to the old metallica, pantera, ozzy, bls, and i thought all was now lost, and these guys come out of nowhere and totally disprove that. by far the best cd i’ve bought in years. put it in, push play, and listen to the whole thing. yes, you heard me- every song is awesome. whatever it costs, buy it!

  • THE BAND: Chris Robertson (vocals, guitars), Ben Wells (guitars), Jon Lawhon (bass), John Fred Young (drums & percussion). Home state – Kentucky.

    THE DISC: (2006) 13 tracks clocking in at approximately 46 minutes. Included with the disc is a 4-page foldout including band pictures, song credits, and thank you’s. Recorded at Barrick Studios, Glasgow, Kentucky. There is also a bonus 2nd disc (DVD) with a 9+ minute intro with the band… including some local concert footage, walking through their old high school and talking with the principal, their homes and practice area. Label – Roadrunner Records.

    COMMENTS: It’s rare when a young rock band grabs me today. Too many hip-hop and wanna-be rappers. Please God bring me back to 70’s rock & roll. I heard sound clips and quickly took the plunge and bought Black Stone Cherry’s debut. BSC is plain and simply HARD ROCK… the old school way. No screeching or yelling from singer Chris Robertson – vocals are just right and appropriate for the style. Drummer John Young’s father played with the Kentucky Headhunters. The band members say they grew up listening to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Beatles (and of course the Kentucky Headhunters). What do they sound like – if forced to compare them to another band, I’d say I hear elements of Blackfoot, STP’s, Motley Crue, Atomic Opera, Buckcherry, Saliva (touring with in 2006), Soundgarden and/or Jackyl. “Rain Wizard” is the album opener and rocks from the start. You’ll see on the DVD that the rain wizards are locals living in caves and the town prays to them for ample rain and a good harvest. The first 5 songs are the catchiest – melodies and lyrically. “When The Weight Comes Down” reflects on world events and the likes of Sept 11th. “Lonely Train” is the first hit from BSC. As much as the driving guitars on the entire album grabbed me, Young’s drumming hooked me in. He’s a madman on the drum kit… leaving no skin or cymbal safe… reminiscent of a young Tommy Lee or Keith Moon. BSC presents ROCK the way it should be. Great debut and I predict big things for Black Stone Cherry (4.5 stars).

  • I don`t write many reviews online but i had to write this one.These guys are the best new band i`ve heard since guns n roses.They would have been very comfortable in the late 70`s or early 80`s with the metal scene.This cd has it all with great vocals and fantastic guitar,with great solo`s,a rareity now adays.If the song rollin on dosen`t make the hair stand up on the back of your neck your not into rock.Buy this album if you like great hard rockin music,these guys are talented.

  • Haven’t heard anything new this great in a long time. Not since Black Label Society’s Sonic Brew have we heard such a solid debut over the past decade. BSC is a group of young country boys from Kentucky with strong musical roots. This album rocks from start to finish and it’s going to be great watching these guys grow musically over the next few years to their full potential. Highly recommend this one!
