Legendary producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley put the rock guts back into Rush in the 1980s when they started to get too keyboard and synth oriented. Guitarist Alex Lifeson was asked to ditch the reverb and Neal Peart the electric drums. The problem being addressed was strikingly clear and indicative of the Eighties. "The songs had no "balls," Shirley said. "They were thin so I was hell bent on making a heavy record." No such issue befalls his Black Country Communion project. The Anglo/American hybrid is unfairly stacked with talent even by supergroup standards. With Zeppelin, Sabbath and Deep Purple in its bloodline, their latest release "Afterglow" (out Oct. 30) is all balls; blunt force blues/rock trauma from both sides of the ocean. Fellow Brits Jason Bonham and Glenn Hughes combine forces with guitar legend in the making Joe Bonamassa and Dream Theater's Derek Sherinian for a hard rocking experience rarely seen since its golden age in the early Seventies.

Like its predecessors, the 11 track compilation starts out with a bang and then keeps exploding for another 53 minutes as Bonham channels his inner Zeppelin alongside Hughes' massive vocals and Bonamassa's scorching Les Paul.
It's difficult to label BCC. Part English, part American, blistering rock and hardcore blues. It doesn't really matter how they are categorized. If you're looking for a classic hard rock experience, there is no need to sort through your vinyl collection.

In a popular music world of Lady Gaga's and other musical crud, these guys continue to keep REAL Rock & Roll alive, and for that we are grateful! This cd rocks in every sense, from the first song "Big Train", to the last "Crawl", each song has more contrast than even ther previous 2 statements. Congrats to Kevin, Glenn, Joe, Jason and Derek for another outstanding release, and please, please guys- continue to create rock music in a seemingly dying musical genre. This cd isn't leaving my car player for a long while!(Shame on the reviewer / punter with 1 star, indeed!)

Is this a BCC record, or a Glen Hughes exercise in self indulgence? For me, this record
starts to go a bit into the wrong direction, those tough 70's hard rock riffs
on the first two releases being replaced with something more along the lines of 80's
hair band tunes. I love the fact that there's still a band out there doing blues based hard rock today, and while I still dig these guys, I have to say their previous releases were
much better. This sounds more like a 1985 Glen Hughes album to me. Hughes vocals sound good
thru most of it, although a bit strained in parts of some ( "Circle" has an almost nails-on-
a-chalkboard screech in some parts that kinda flaw that one for me). Always liked Bonamassa, but some of his solos (not all)on this one seem alot shorter and a bit "phoned in", as well as some seeming somewhat buried in the mix this time...bummer. Could have used
his vocals on more than just one track too, to help with the whole Hughes dominated feel
of this one. I did think Bonham was still kickin butt, and the album is still alot better
than most stuff being released these days. I guess after the first two, I was just expecting
a bit better...

This is an AWESOME cd by BCC, and the best yet..I dig all of BCC's work, but this takes the cake and the person who gave this a 1 star rating is flatout of their mind..

It only took two albums, but Afterglow finally shows BCC delivering a stellar album! There are a lot of songs to like on the first couple of albums such as Black Country, Medusa, Save Me, Crossfire, and Song Of Yesterday, but Afterglow really shows the band hitting their stride. Joe Bonamassa sounds really relaxed and loosened up and his playing is more rock than blues which is a good thing! On the first two BCC albums, he sounded standoffish to rocking which I think held the band back making Jason Bonham, Glenn Hughes and Derek Sherinian work a lot harder at reminding the listeners that BBC is as much a hard rock band as it is a blues based rock band. But Afterglow also shows the band taking more musical chances which has improved the songwriting a great deal. The album reminds me of what Led Zeppelin was doing with Physical Graffiti and what Deep Purple was doing with Stormbringer and Come Taste The Band back in the mid 1970s. I have listened to Afterglow quite a few times and I am about to start listening to it again. Glenn Hughes has never sounded better and Jason Bonham has done his dad proud. Derek Sherinian is definitely carrying the torch started by the late Jon Lord and everyone is starting to gell. I have read about the drama in the BCC camp recently and I hope that it all can be ironed out so that this band can be around for another 4 or 5 albums. It is hard to pick a favorite song on the disc because each track is a killer! There are a long list of classic rock artists who are currently making the best music of their careers, and Afterglow is an album worthy of that list. Pick it up today!
