The only son of country legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Shooter Jennings literally spent his childhood on a tour bus. Born Waylon Albright Jennings, Shooter was playing drums by the time he was five years old and had already begun taking piano lessons, only to break them off and follow his own path to an understanding of the instrument. He discovered guitar at 14 and rock & roll ... Read more in Amazon's Shooter Jennings Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The acclaimed singer-songwriter is kicking off a bold new chapter in his career with new band HIEROPHANT and a mind-blowing 70-minute opus that completely obliterates genre distinctions. Narrated by Stephen King, this unprecedented work, twanging dobros coexist with Nintendo chipsets; brutally assaultive passages alternate with moments of unabashed tenderness, and surreal Floydian soundscapes float above smoking slabs of whiskey-soaked southern soul. It s an electrifying thrill ride across a dense, dark and gloriously decadent musical landscape.


3.5/4 Stars --People Magazine

Brilliant ... one wild, paranoid, anti-establishment mash-up of psychedelic theater --Los Angeles Daily News

Genre: Awesome. Okay, lets call it a concept album even though that doesn't even do it justice as to how much I love this album. --Stereogasm

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album, cerebral, relevant, eerie... March 2, 2010
Verified Purchase
This album is one of the most interesting surprises to come along in the music scene in quite awhile. Shooter Jennings and Stephen King have created an eerie, and extremely relevant, listening experience here. I don't buy many albums these days, but this ride is definitely worth the price of the ticket!

Stephen King plays the narrative on this album (yes, that Stephen King). He is a radio DJ the night before new draconian government broadcasting laws go into effect. It is the last free broadcast, and the dialogue hits the mood perfectly.

I recently heard an interview with Shooter Jennings discussing the narrative, and it is brilliant. For example, the D.J. (Stephen King) doesn't discuss martial law during the broadcast because, as Shooter explains, everyone would already know that martial law was in effect, thus D.J.s wouldn't be talking about it much. And the result of this foresight and attention to detail is a narrative that works; King's voice, the background music, and the narrative easily convince the imagination that it is listening to the last free radio broadcast in the United States, sometime in the near future.

King mentions "past" events that are happening now and reflects on the mood of the country as they occurred. Listening to this future broadcast discussing today's events in the past tense is an incredible experience, especially considering the brilliance of the spoken word.

So what music set does this last D.J. decide to play on the deathbed of free speech? This is where the music comes in and delivers the home run! King explains why he has chosen this music, for its resistance, its spirit. This music will not go gently into that good night!

5.0 out of 5 stars Giant Leap Forward March 2, 2010
Verified Purchase
I've always thought that Shooter had only one foot in the country scene. With Black Ribbons, not only does he lay down a heavier, metallic, sinister sound that could almost be called progressive, he serves it up in a creepy, mind-bending concept album with Stephen King narration and CD packaging that is pretty darned cool.

I saw Shooter and his kickin band play some of these songs a few months ago on tour, and they come through loud and clear here.

This is an album that has great songs, tells a story and actually has something to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breath taking March 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
To say this album is incredible does not do it justice. I've bought every one of Shooter's studio albums, save for Bad Magick as it was a greatest hits album and to me, all his songs are hits. When I first heard about this album and this concept months ago I wasn't too sure; I was worried because I felt that Shooter was straying from his roots. But after hearing the album and understanding his reasoning and ideas behind it all, I can say with out a doubt that this is by far my most favorite album of his.

Shooter has definitely found his sound and made it is own. Like a previous reviewer said, this album refuses to be classified into a genre, you can label it whatever you want but I can guarantee you it surpasses that. I can't get enough of this album, it has my favorite artist doing what he does best along with narration from my favorite author...This album is the total package for me, hell I may even buy the vinyl LP as well.

Shooter Jennings and Hierophant - Black Ribbons (Rocket Science)

Shooter Jennings, son of the great country outlaw Waylon Jennings, has made a marked departure from the country of his earlier CDs and has released a fascinating concept CD in which he has literally worked hand in hand with horror fiction author Stephen King.

The plot is a Dick Cheney scheme gone wild. The Patriot Act has resulted in a military dictatorship. Soldiers are on every corner. People are afraid to speak their minds. And in one hour, the last free radio broadcasts will come to an end. Will o' the Wisp, the host of Last Light Radio has devoted this last hour to playing music from the fictional band Hierophant (Shooter Jennings and his band), an outfit that plays a combination of punk and southern rock, basically Lynyrd Skynyrd to Nine Inch Nails. Between sets, Will o' the Wisp (Stephen King, in an original script) talks about what has happened to America and its liberties and lost freedoms, all the while knowing that the authorities are tightening the noose around his neck.

Will o' the Wisp is angry, yet hopeful that the masses will eventually overthrow this military regime, and he makes no bones about it during his between set raps. He has thrown chance to the wind and is daring the authorities to shut him down. And the soldiers are coming.

In the meantime, there are the songs. Songs of hope, songs of rage, songs of the way life used to be, songs of how the end came.

Shooter Jennings is the name on the CD, but it is truly Stephen King as the voice of Last Light Radio that you will remember, and the conclusion of his last show.

Shooter Jennings and Stephen King may well have made, rather early on in 2010, the CD of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. Extremely well done. March 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
I'm not familiar with Shooter, I stumbled onto this record after reading a review/interview on the LA Times website. I was intrigued the more I read about the making and concept behind the work and the influences that went into the record. Yes, it does have influences of Floyd (and it helps that I love PF), but more than that, the album touches on current events and ideas that are not often heard in popular music. The record is a journey from start to finish, a well orchestrated trip. Like one person on here said, you will either love it or not care for it. I for one, am glad I purchased the record.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware: the mp3 album is NOT the full version.
The Amazon mp3 album is missing half of the tracks (there are 20 total), including all of the spoken tracks - had I realized this, I certainly would not have bought through Amazon.
