In a time when boy bands and rap dominate the music scene, Buckcherry gives us hope with their new album “Time Bomb”. Every song on this album rocks! I bought it the day it came out and listen to it everyday. I’m not gonna pick apart every song and tell you how great it is, just buy the album and see for yourself. Trust me, you won’t be dissapointed. Also, if you get a chance, make sure you see these guys live, they put on one rockin’ show!! Buckcherry rocks!!
Japanese only SHM-CD (Super High Material CD – playable on all CD players) pressing includes bonus material. Universal. 2008.If you liked this bunch’s self-titled debut, you will certainly dig the dozen raunchy tunes that populate Time Bomb. Wiry, wild Joshua Todd–a classic blues-belting, tattoo-bearing frontman–possesses a gift for irony that, while not easily gleaned, does exist. Behind him, guitars grind away, while big production by John Travis (Monster Magnet, Sugar Ray) helps create a believable street-grit feel that recalls early Guns N’ Roses. The Sex Pistols-like ”Place in the Sun” is a winner, as is the full-tilt ”Frontside” and the suitably nasty ”Porno Star.” There are even a couple decent ballads! At its hard core, Time Bomb is that rare breed–an in-your-face, aggressive rock album that shows off a wonderful (and too rare) punk rock sensibility. –Katherine Turman

Buckcherry is pure metal in the style of vintage Guns n Roses and AC/DC. Time Bomb is their sophmore release and it is an amazing album, and it shows that not all bands around today have no talent. This album is very raw and rockin’ but the songs are very well written and performed. On this album they managed to expand on the sound of their first album but still stick to what they know. This album is full of upbeat metal songs such as Frontside, Porno Star, Underneath, Slammin’, Slit My Wrists, Fall, and the first single Ridin’. There are also a few slower ballad like songs such as, (Segue)Helpless, You, and the hidden song. In my opinion the best song on the album is the rocker Whiskey in the Morning, this is such a great song. For fans of non polised straight forward metal this album is for you, but for anyone else you should check it out but no guarentees you’ll like it
this album is awsome, it is really good, just as good as their first one, if not even better. It seems that they had a few more “ballads” then what they did on their first one but the ballads are good. Musically, its better then their first! but I recommened them both because both are awsome albums. But the really big news is that they’re back together in 05′(atleast Josh Todd-Vocals and Keith Nelson-Guitar) I’ve heard their new single “Crazy Bitch” today and I must tell you that they’re even better! their new album “15″ hits stores October 11,2005 go get it now!
Buckcherry returns from a Gold debut to a vastly superior cd. It is perverse, sleazy, erotic, smart, dirty, hook-laden, big chorussy, violent, romantic, party anthems, introspective. What more can you ask for?The songs are either fast and dirty or slow and beautiful. The lyrics run from suicidal to lovey-dovey. The hidden track will make you cry and “PORNO STAR” will make you …..!”Whiskey in the Morning” is brilliant and ‘A Place In The Sun” is moving, trying and creepy.All in all a tight record you can play at a party…alone..or with that “special someone” (read PORNO STAR description).Brilliant and a welcome change to mopey alt rap rock.Thank God for BUCKCHERRY!!
So, where has rock like this been all my life. Buckcherry, Time Bomb. A refreshing album, an album that is simply a lot of fun. With the exception of a few ballads, which are good in their own right, Buckcherry rocks out for the entire album without stopping. I mean it’s just endless, straight-ahead, driving rock. There are no synthesizers, no machines, no stupid records being scratched, and no rap-metal, borderline, does not know which way to go [music]. Just rock from start to finish. The drums are pounding, the riffs are loud and endless, and yes lead singer Josh Todd does scream the whole time, but that is what makes this album so great and what makes Buckcherry- well Buckcherry. The band is at its best when it’s totally rocking out. It’s just rock. Think Chuck Berry. And maybe that’s where Buckcherry got their name. Wouldn’t surprise me. The whole album is excellent. On this album, screaming is very good. It’s always there for me when I just need to let loose and have fun. Sure, the lyrics are not profound, but I doubt they were meant to be, and with songs that sound so good, they don’t have to be. That’s not what Buckcherry is all about. So, for once, let go of your anger and fear and sadness, and have fun with Time Bomb. We all need to do that sometimes. It’s theraputic.
