Buckcherry – 15


2006, Eleven Seven Music
Rating: 4.5/5

Josh Todd and Buckcherry return with a long awaited follow-up album. Jam packed with high energy raw RnR songs that are guitar driven. Josh’s excellent and slightly unique vocals put the finishing touch on a real Rock record that will simply blow you away.

The opening two tracks are some of the best songs you have heard in awhile. The anthematic “Next 2 You” is sure to get crowds going at the live shows. It got that ‘Live’ feel to it and you can easily tell it will be a fan favourite in a live concert setting. The first release “Crazy Bitch” has one of those chorus’ that will stick in your head for days on end ( and it has). While the song is not the most radio friendly it is sure to become a fan favourite despite it’s simplistic lyrics. Another stand out cut is the bluesy yet funky “Brooklyn”, a truly unique song. With it’s bluesy guitar and funky rythmns this song gets the foot tappin’ and the head movin’ with it’s kick ass groove.

A real energetic and raw sounding album, the way Rock is supposed to be. Recorded in just 15 days ( Hence the title) without the input of direction of labels, A&R guys or managers. Josh and Co. made a true record. This is what it’s all about.
