Editorial Reviews

Redefining Southern influenced, roots-rock with an edge for a modern
audience, Black Stone Cherry have sold upwards of 110,000 copies of
their 2006 self-titled debut and have shared the stage with Buckcherry,
Hinder, Staind, Three Days Grace, Finger 11, Shinedown and more. With
a soulful driving attack, few bands this young sound this powerful or
versatile. The band' s sophomore effort for Roadrunner Records, Folklore
and Superstition was produced by famed rock producer Bob Marlette
(Ozzy, Shinedown) and recorded in Nashville' s infamous Blackbird
Studios, that has housed everyone from Kid Rock to The Raconteurs.

Customer Reviews

Great effort for a band that continues to mature and perfect their sound.
P. Collins
I didn't love every song on the CD, but the good tracks are SO good than I can easily overlook the two or three weaker tracks.
M. Pattison
I love this album and would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves rock music.

Of all of this year's hard rock and heavy metal releases, I've probably been looking forward to Folklore & Superstition, the sophomore album from Black Stone Cherry, the most. The Kentucky-based band took me completely by surprise with their 2006 self-titled debut, which sounded like the illegitimate offspring of Black Sabbath and Lynyrd Skynyrd (or maybe Black Label Society and a case of bourbon), and since then I've been dying to hear whether that album was a fluke, or whether Black Stone Cherry was the real deal.

I shouldn't have worried. Much like the song Rain Wizard off the debut, album opener Blind Man starts things off with a bang, reminding you at once of everything you love about this band. Please Come In and Reverend Wrinkle continue in the same vein, with that perfect combination of doomy Soundgarden riffs and Skynyrd's southern integrity. Soulcreek is just a great, Southern fried, beer raising anthem. The album stumbles a bit with the ballad Things My Father Said, which, despite its obvious emotional content, sounds like a Creed b-side. Fortunately the high octane rocker The Bitter End puts the album right back on track. The rest of the album is in the same vein as the first half, with hard rocking songs (Long Sleeves, Devil's Queen, The Key, and the thundering closer Ghost of Floyd Collins) balanced by anthem-like tracks (the sing-along Peace is Free) and slower, heartfelt numbers like You.

Folklore & Superstition is a fantastic hard rock album from a band that deserves a LOT more attention. It's the kind of real rock & roll album that you can totally sink your teeth into, and it's authentic in a way most bands only wish they could accomplish. If you missed this great rock & roll band the first time around, this is your chance to see what you've been missing.

I'm very impressed with both albums from this band. Finally a rock band that does NOT sound like Nickelback.(I like Nickelback but I don't need 10 different other bands that sound just like them) This has a little southern flair without sounding country. Great solos, great changes, great rhythms. Overall I think these guys are better musicians than some of the other bands people want to compare them to. I can listen to both albums all the way through and enjoy every song.
PS: I originally stole this from the internet but it was good enough for me to later seek out and purchase. Why would I do that? Because I want the industry to know that I'll support them if they produce good music.

This Special Edition is Blastin Fast and Loud from my stereo speakers as I type this. It sounds great and holds several never before released Gems from one of the best up-and-coming artists in the industry. Some of the tracks were released on the digital EPS only, so this set is perfect for those who would rather have a physical (legal) copy of greats such as Big City Lights and Drinkin' Champagne. If you already own Folklore and Superstition I don't know if this album is worth the price for you, but it is a must have for hardcore fans like myself. Maybe in the future BSC will release Disc 2 independently. But for now, Ive got to Rock N Roll!

BSC are a great band! They got the sound. They got the skills. And better yet, they got the FEEL! Their first album was solid. This one picks up where that one left off! All around great album!

I have mucho respect for this band as they are one of VERY few newer bands that can still carry the torch for real rock music. This is not over produced trash. They all can play their instruments and they play them very well, and they play them with FEELING......something most bands these days lack. Check it out!!!

I've been a fan of Black Stone Cherry for a while, and now have all three of their albums, but I got to say, this one's my favorite, if only for the song 'Blind Man'. Fantastic sound, fantastic songs, all wrapped up in one of the best male vocalists in the world.

I like it but its not as good as the 1st or 3rd albums! Saw them open up for Chickenfoot in Portland OR. 2012 put on a great show! Cant wait for the next album to come out!

Black Stone Cherry are a very young Southern Rock band out of Kentucky who burst on the scene with their debut album in 2007. This, their sophomore effort, combines classic southern rock ala Skynyrd or even closer to Molly Hatchet, with modern heavy guitar rock. This band shows tons of promise and although I think this album has its share of flaws; overall it is a solid release. When these guys are on, they are really on, as reflected by strong tracks like "Blind Man", "Reverend Wrinkle", "Soulcreek", "Devil's Queen", "The Key", and "Ghost Of Floyd Collins". Songs like "Collins" could have come straight out of the hey day of 70's era southern rock n roll. The band even throws in some reggae with the track "Sunrise" which probably should not work, but surprisingly is the perfect fit for the song. The album contains its fair share of ballads, some of which stand out with some not working as well. The lyrics on the album are a bit inconsistent; with some impressive southern storytelling sitting along side some trite cliché's. One of the best tracks on the album "Devil's Queen" starts off as a great rocker and concludes with a spirited jam, but just as things really start to take off the track fades out. This one could have easily been stretched out for several more minutes enabling the guys to really show off their chops, but unfortunately the producers decided to cut it mid stride. Maybe it is the progressive rock / jam band fan in me, but I really think several of these tracks could have benefited by letting the guys go on a little bit more. Criticisms aside, this is a solid album that although not perfect, is well worth a listen. If you have been looking for a new band to emerge in the tradition of classic hard southern rock, these guys may be just what the doctor ordered.
