Anaheim based rockers Buckcherry are back, and with a vengeance. Their 7th studio album since their inception in 1995 is everything you could possibly want rock n roll to be.
The album opens in sensational fashion with the solid, and extremely catchy Bring It On back solidifying the bands reputation as heavy rock masters. A fantastic track with all the rock elements firmly represented.
Tight Pants is a solid upbeat track and welcome reminder of Todd’s time with Hollywood glam rock outfit Slamhound. I’m not sure her tight pants will fit you Todd, but perhaps I misunderstood. A track of truly monumental sound.
The Feeling Never Dies is truly reminiscent of 80’s metal ballads but with the pure crisp rock melodies Buckcherry are so noted for.
The Madness is a great indication of the musical qualities the group possess and it must be said that Kelly LeMieux joining the band has only enhanced the percussive deep tones from his bass work brilliance. Kelly is a bassist of tremendous rock experience and is a fantastic acquisition for Buckcherry.
The guitar work on this album is quite restrained, but sensationally impressive none the less and recruitment of less than traditions instruments is nothing short of brilliant, enhancing the group’s sound exponentially.
I’ve always enjoyed Todd’s voice as the perfect blend of Axl Rose and Bon Scott and equally enjoy the group’s latest instalment. Rock N Roll is a hallmark of Buckcherry’s experience and ongoing refinement. Classic rock revitalised and sprinkled with the gritty Buckcherry edge.
