Sound — 9
The latest Glenn Hughes creation has some awesome sound. Their are powerful bass and guitar lines. Some of the riffs are just fantastic. The riffs are a variety of bluesy Led Zep to heavy Sabbath. This mix of lighter stuff and metal is great and comes off really well. The metal songs are a bit of a break from the norm for Bonamassa but he hadnles it very well.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are well thought out and well enunciated. They fit nicely with the music and allow for the brilliant solos and riffs to be heard. Some tracks have almost sing-a-long style music. Their is true energy dispersed through Hughes singing which is excellent on this album. However Hughes did not seem to have a lot of vocal range. All in all the energy and quality of the lyrics was great.
Overall Impression — 10
This album has made BCC in my top 10 avorite bands. It is reminiscent of Zep, Deep Purple and Sabbath, it takes classic rock and sticks it into a disc of brilliance. From the riffing song Black Country to the nostalgic Song of Yesterday there is might in every song. The best probably being Black COuntry, Sista Jane and Song of Yesterday. Anyone who like classic and hard rock will love this album.
