Editorial Reviews

They say you can't go home again, but Black Stone Cherry proves otherwise on KENTUCKY. The hard-rocking Bluegrass State quartet recorded its fifth album, and follow-up to 2014's MAGIC MOUNTAIN, at Barrick Recording in Glasgow, KY, where it recorded its 2006 debut album. The 13 tracks find BSC connecting with that same youthful energy (check out "Shakin' My Cage," "Soul Machine" or "Rescue Me") but demonstrates the wisdom gleaned from nearly a decade of recording and touring on tracks such as the reflective "Long Ride" and a brassy (and timely) take on Edwin Starr's Motown classic "War."

Black Stone Cherry is what I like to refer to as "Southern Fried Grunge," a combination of old school southern rock ala Lynyrd Skynyrd and 90's grunge ala Soundgarden / Alice in Chains. Personally, I think they are one of the best rock bands on the scene today. Many fans felt they took a step backward with their last album "Magic Mountain," and although I love a handful of tracks from that album, I pretty much agree overall. However, that was then and this is now. "Kentucky" is a very solid effort from BSC that seems to combine elements from all their albums to date: tracks like Soul Machine have that hard rocking party edge similar to "Blame it on the Boom Boom" from the "Devil / Sea" album, while "Born to Die" and "The Rambler" could have fit nicely on "Folklore & Superstition." In other words, there should be something for everyone who has followed BSC these last 10 years.

The album is diverse in its sounds and lyrics. Lyrically, "Kentucky" covers a wide range of topics from sex and binge drinking to war, politics, sadness and regret. Musically, BSC continues to impress. They are damn good musicians, and Chris Robertson is one of my favorite vocalists.

There are several songs that make the album worth purchasing - "Cheaper to Drink Alone" and "Feeling Fuzzy" are two of the bluesier hard rockers on the album, "Soul Machine" gets down and dirty with its hard edged riffs, while "Way of the Future" kicks off the album with a hard rocking message about the dark times we're living in. "In Our Dreams" is one of the early releases from the album, and it's another excellent track worth mentioning.

I've been a fan of Black Stone Cherry for about 6 years now and I am never disappointed with their music. I love the southern Rock sound and I love their energy all together! I'm so happy that this album came with a digital download so that I can instantly listen to it and not have to wait for my physical copy to get her. Currently, I'm loving the track titled "The Rambler". I would recommend this album to all my friends and family who are into rock/southern rock/maybe even some country. I think their songs have great messages and a lot of emotion behind them.

Tracks included on the album include:

1. The way of the future - Almost reminds me of "me and merry Jane" at the beginning, but moves on with a great message. My favorite lines of this song are

"Take back control Fight for your soul
Hang on, let's all get offended
Keep on, poisonin' the system
There's just wrong and there's right
No black and no white
No right in this fight
Throw away, everything You been told to believe
Break away, from these chains
We're supposed to be free
Yeah free"

This song just screams that something has to change and makes you really stop and think.

2. In our Dreams - First of all, if you haven't seen the video for this song yet, you need to get on YouTube right now and check it out! It has a kind of fantasy feel to it, and I LOVE it! I feel like this song also has a positive message about fighting for what's right and the video also goes right along with it.

3. Shakin' My Cage - This one is pretty catchy and has a great melody to it. Personally, it's not my favorite on the album but it's still a great song and I enjoy it enough that I don't skip it when it comes on.

I've given 'Kentucky' several listens and, simply put, it's a really solid album. There is not a weak track on the entire album and there are some amazingly catchy tunes, some straight forward butt kicking rock, and some truly heartfelt songs as well. It takes you everywhere a great rock album should. 'Kentucky' feels like a great balance of BSC's first three albums and is a nice return to form after the constant pot smoking reference laden 'Magic Mountain'.

As an old rocker from way back I prefer classic rock over today's newer bands. But BSC is a band I do like. And Kentucky doesn't dissapoint at all. I see one reviewer calls this "formlatic music" he has crap in his ears don't listen to him. He just mad The Fray doesn't have a new album out. This album kicks major ass from start to finish and is old rocker approved.

This was a very much anticipated album release; and boy these guys do not disappoint! If you've followed their journey, you know their souls and roots; and you know that they put them all into this album. If you listen to the album in its entirety, you will find there is something for EVERYONE.

"Soul Machine" is just that...S-O-U-L.
"Shakin My Cage" will get you to shakin that ass.
"Cheaper to Drink Alone" has a beat that will have you addicted from the first time you hear it.
The "War" remake will have some singing the chorus just as you remembered hearing it when you were a toddler.
"The Rambler" is hopefully going to be a hit right in line with Lynyrd Skynard's "Simple Man" and will get even some of the hardest-shelled folks to feel a bit of emotion.

Best thing these guys ever did was switch record labels....

My advice....BUY IT...and then recommend it to your friends!!!. You will NOT be disappointed!!! My other piece of advice is that if they come to a town near you, go see them. Their energy is contagious!!!!
