iTunes Review

Waylon Jennings’ son Shooter abandons the alt-country his genes all but demanded from him and joins up with a new group of musicians who put the pedal to the metal. And suddenly Jennings is fronting a band that’s one part Soundgarden, another part Queensryche and a third part Jesus Christ Superstar. Black Ribbons is assembled like The Who Sell Out or Roger Waters’ Radio K.A.O.S. with Stephen King serving as the doomsday DJ in between tracks that swing into a variety of studio-enhanced styles. “Triskaidekaphobia” and “Don’t Feed the Animals” move in mysterious ways towards different forms of prog-metal, while “The Breaking Point” slims down to a bluesy quiet that explodes into a regal, choir-induced chorus just shy of hitting another galaxy. This is weird, freaked-out music that plays like a studio experiment gone mad. Jennings is obviously having a great time playing up to the apocalypse. Even “God Bless Alabama” keeps away from the standard issue boogie riffs. “All of This Could Have Been Yours” plays like a ballad under the influence of the Flaming Lips. One of 2010’s most ambitious and delightfully experimental albums.

Customer Reviews

Shooter hits his mark

Never has an artist strayed so far from his comfort zone and the typical expectations of his established fan base to produce what may ultimately be considered a masterpiece of it's era. This album should eventually go down in music history as one of the greatest concept albums of all time

completely underhyped

This album is brilliant. Haunting, resonant tunes layered between poetically narrated segments.

The Truth from Shooter Jennings & Stephen King, for those with ears to hear...

This is a very interesting album, presented in the form of a radio broadcast, with DJ King spinning Shooter's tunes and offering words of wisdom for the near future as liberty draws to a close. It goes without saying that the music is top-notch. But it’s the message that is most important here. “Hierophant” refers to an interpreter of esoteric knowledge. And that’s what is happening here. In “Wake Up!” we’re warned about the TV in the corner that poisons our minds with state propaganda. He describes how they divide us to conquer us from within. And we’d better be careful, or the controllers will edit us out of this movie called life. “Summer of Rage” warns of chaos, death, gas masks, mass graves, mandatory vaccinations, and a budding police state. As Shooter says, truly, our only weapon is total defiance. “Triskaidekaphobia” encodes the enigmatic lives (and deaths) of Jack Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Diana (the Jack of Hearts, the King of Hearts, and the Queen of Hearts, respectively).

Biography

Born: May 19, 1979

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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 (particularly Southern rock and the loose-limbed hard rock of Guns N' Roses) at 16. Soon he moved from Nashville...
