Album Review: Buckcherry - Rock 'N' Roll

"Trends have changed but their cocksure outlook remains."

More Buckcherry More Buckcherry

When breakthrough hit Lit Up registered, Buckcherry's primal, AC/DC-inspired swagger was refreshing amid a rock environment smothered by nu-metal and faceless post-grunge.

Several records later, trends have changed but their cocksure outlook remains. Bring It On Back boasts that distinctive groove, and The Feeling Never Dies taps into a similar sensibility as previous smash ballad Sorry. Tongue-in-cheek Wood elicits chuckles, but perhaps errs a little on the contrived side of bawdy. Bluesy Rain's Falling offers welcome variety. Filler detracts, but again Buckcherry provide the aural accompaniment to an evening of fast cars and heavy boozing in strip clubs.
