I thought 2 would take some beating but here we are again with yet another belter and sustained improvement from the previous. This is a real classic album from a great band. JB as great as he is has started to become predictable in his own band, GH great lyricist singer and front man but has not peaked like this in his other outings. Keyboards and drums as great musicians as they are will only ever supplement the 2 goliaths here. Stop the arguing guys and get this album toured - don't let this special arrgt slip into what could have been - turn on the news and get your disputes into perspective.
Great Band and Album

  On Fire !!!!!

I feared "Confessor" may have been the highlight. But this album rocks. I will not spoil by reviewing each track as I want the listener to enjoy the journey like I did. Some songs could easily fit on a classic Zep or Purple album and you will hear why. The pedigree of the band has that line in its genes. The songs writing combinations are many yet still it sounds like a band that has lived and toured in a bus together for decades. The first two BCC albums were just off the mark for maximum points but this is a gem that has texture, dynamics, lyrical and riff hooks and each song sounds as good as the last. It took me back to the 1970's when the new 12" vinyl album slipped out of the paper inner cover and had the glow and smell of excitment. Then the album be it Zep or Purple or Heep or ELP etc lost its virginity to my ears. This album is that great. Every one of them is on top form and it is important to tip a nod to the fifth member of the band Kevin Shirley who is the George Martin of the heavy rock division. This album overshadows the latest from Muse, Lynyrd Synkyrd, Van Halen, Chckenfoot and the first T.C.V albums. This band is a top bill band with top notch tunes and deserves to be remembered in the same vein as the greats of old. I know the boys in the band have been at each other over silly matters that may see the end of BCC. What I would like to say to them is I want a fourth album from you all. So except it, you are so good you will have to put ego's and petty differences aside and go out and show everyone who has not heard of you how great rock is now. You are the shot in the arm we needed for our dulled and bland filled ears. As the last notes on the album fade in the air you will want to play this time and again. Come on boys lets have another album from you.
