Modern rock? Not a bad thing, unless they didn't write the songs.

I noticed on Wikipedia the other day that Black Stone Cherry has gone the route of using outside songwriters. I noted a while back that their recent stuff sound much more radio-friendly and not as good as the early stuff. Seems the be the way of things these days.

I think they were referring to my use of the "N word"; "Nickelback". Seriously, a couple songs on this new one remind me of the theme to WWE Smackdown which is by Nickelback.

And you know, I bought that new Black Stone Cherry and have never listened to it because the more I read the reviews, the more I figured I'd be wasting my time.

Well, I've spun this about 4 times now and it's definitely different when compared to Let's Rock N Roll. Other than "Man Of Constant Sorrow" and "Devil Is A Woman" (one of the best songs they've created IMO) the bluesy vibe is all but gone; this album is much more "modern rock" than the last album. I still hear echoes of Nickelback (especially in a song like Walk Away) but I also hear a Disturbed vibe in songs like Spite and Unstoppable.

I like it but it's definitely a change in direction and not what I was expecting.

Here's a link to "Devil Is A Woman" if anyone is interested:

Been listening to this one. Definitely an industry album. Nearly everyone has been co-written with an industry songwriter (aka hit-maker), and it sounds like it. I don't mind modern rock like this, but John Allen is a great songwriter so I'm not sure why this was necessary.

Disappointing considering how good the debut and the Forty Acres (pre-Charm City Devils) albums are.

I started spinning this again today because of Eye's post.

I don't care what anyone says, I still like this album. Yeah, it's not the same as their previous album but I still love it.

Oh, it's good. These songwriters know how to craft catchy tunes, and I love catchy tunes. My disappointment comes from simply knowing that none of it was necessary.

Anyone heard anything recent from these guys? I recently spun their debut, Let's Rock n Roll, and wondered if they're still a thing. Looks like they put out another album, Battles (2014) after Sins (2012), but it didn't seem to make much of an impact. Not 'round here anyway.

Thoughts?

Yea, I read through this whole thread and the general consensus was that Sins paled in comparison to the debut.

I don't know that I'll be adding anymore to my collection. The debut's ok enough, but it's not making me jones for more.

I still really dig the "Let's Rock N Roll" album a lot and I thought "Sins" had its moments (Man of Constant Sorrrow, Unstoppable, Devil Is A Woman for example) but that shift to a more modern rock sound didn't grab me like the first album did so I never even bothered with them after that.

I like quite a few songs on Sins, especially the opening three tracks. The shift in style didn't seem all that drastic to me for whatever reason. I still haven't heard Battles yet.
