Black Country is the stunning debut from Black Country Communion the Anglo/American rock super group comprising vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple Black Sabbath, Trapeze), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner), Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Alice Cooper) and blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa. The problem with the albums released by most supergroups is that they tend to dissapoint a little, but theres no such fear here.
Opening with a furious bass line, Black Country sets the tone for the rest of the album. A brilliant song, executed to perfection, with Glenn Hughes and Joe Bonamassa dueling through out, a real call to arms. Glenn is in fine voice throughout this album, possibly the best he as sounded in years, and Joes guitar work is phenomenal. Jason, at times almost sounds like his late great father John Bohnam, to be honest I just cant say enough good things bout this album.
Stand out tracks include, Black Country, Great Divide, One Last Soul, the epics Song of Yesterday and Too Late For The Sun and Medusa.
A stunning album from the finest collection of musicians to grace a cd in years!
Very highly reconmended!
