Love This Band
on May 8, 2014
Immediately liked a few songs the first time I listened to it. Runaway, Remember Me, Me and Mary Jane, and even Hollywood in Kentucky will all probably find their way to my iPod when I pull this out of my cd player.
By way of reference I am really digging VolBeat, Black Label, and Three Days Grace right now .. even still playing Theory and Hinder's last albums .. so take it for what its worth.
As BSC reference, some of my favorite songs would be Like I Roll, In My Blood, Fade Away, Things My Father Said, Soul Creek, Blind Man, Peace is Free, You, Lonely Train and When the Weight Comes Down .. so a few songs off the new record will mesh right in there.
If i had to have a complaint it would be how many of the songs are about dope. I dont smoke pot, so after one or two it begins to seem like they dont do anything but sit around on the couch at the practice house and pass the weed around. lol Peach Pipe, Mary Jane, Magic Mountain, and Blow my Mind are all about smoking weed, and several others mention it in passing .. so take it for what it is worth.
Overall, another solid album, if you like them you will like this record, if not then it will probably not win you over .. but I think they are the best thing going right now. Saw them a few weeks ago and they really bring it on stage as well ... nice to see a good band that is not just a studio band .. hung out after the show .. signed autographs for as long as the crowd wanted .. hope they come back soon.
