Black Country Communion – The son of the God of Thunder finally has the band he deserves.
Joining Jason Bonham are blues/rock guitarist extraordinaire Joe Bonammassa, metal vocalist supreme Glenn Hughes, and one of the most sought after keyboard players on the planet Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper) on one of the best rock albums since the heyday of Bad Company in the mid ’70’s.
Yeah, it’s that good.
Hughes voice sounds incredible, the songs really rock and Mr. Bonammassa’s guitar work soars.
The stick work by Jason Bonham is tight as is the rhythm section of Mr. Hughes and Mr. Bonham.
Nods to the great blues based rock bands and players of all-time, Bad Company, Zep, Stevie Ray, Jimi, with a pinch of Purple are woven throughout and sound fresh and exciting again. No small feat to walk in the shadows of giants and make yourself shine but these guys pull it off.
Stellar stuff gentlemen!
