EDITORS’ NOTES

The third studio album from Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry is dominated by massive post-grunge riffs with a distinctly Southern flair. "White Trash Millionaire" is a distorted classic-rock boogie powered by sleazy grooves, while the plaintive "In My Blood"—which pledges allegiance to the touring lifestyle—ends in a torrential downpour of bluesy, headbanging licks. Even the acoustic-flecked "Stay," which was later covered by Florida Georgia Line, is a wrenching power ballad whose guitars burst forth on the heart-wrenching chorus.

Going Mainstream

For the most part this is a really good album but it is lacking the original quality Black Stone Cherry delivered on their last two efforts. Songs like White Trash Millionaire and Blame it on the Boom Boom should finally get them on the radio and open BSC to a brand new audience. Lyrically speaking, it might be the worst album of the three. However, to make it into the mainstream world most bands have to dumb down their lyrics and sing lovesick ballads, and talk about very broad topics that appeal to everyone. It is nice to see Chris's guitar work finally be showcased on an album and the production value of this record is by far the best Black Stone Cherry has released. Still one of my favorite bands, and I don't miss any live show within a few hours of my home. Overall, I give this album a three out five because of the lyrics and the direction the music is taking to appeal to a mainstream audience. The album is worth buying but for fans of the first record it is a little bit of a let down.

Simply Amazing.

Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea shows the versatility of Chris Robertson on vocals, along with awesome guitar and drum solos. Black Stone Cherry continue to put out great albums by staying true to their roots instead of 'going mainstream.' This is my favorite band, and this is now my favorite album!

black stone cherry has created a masterpeice! this album is pure genius from start to finish! i am so glad i ordered the bonus version, because the three extra tracks are just as good as the rest of the album! i can't think of one track that i would skip over! after hearing this album, i can tell that this is the huge breakout that this band has deserved for a long time now!
i won't even attempt to pick any favorite tracks. but i can say that i am really impressed by the whole album!
this could easil be the best album of 2011 ! i'm not kidding! it's that good!
