    These Los Angelenos deliver a brash follow-up to 2006's platinum-selling "15." Spewing filthy oaths and sweet promises, sometimes in the same line, frontman Josh Todd does his best to give misogyny a good name.
  2. The LA quintet, fresh off the radio ubiquity of 'Sorry' last year, prove themselves masters of the form again with such generically sentimental anthems as 'Dreams' and 'Don't Go Away.' [19 Sep 2008, p.72]
  3. Even in the heavier material on Black Butterfly these guys make more room for melody than they ever have before.
  4. 50
    They fluctuate between those two poles while their by-the-book hard rock continues to split the difference between Black Crowes and Guns N’ Roses--though no longer with the wit that fueled their coke-y 1999 breakout, 'Lit Up.'
  5. Far from being the soundtrack to a raging party, Black Butterfly is the flipside of indulgence: Buckcherry is now the sound of a slow slide into the monotony of addiction.

    Personally I don't mind this album. I think their previous have been much better but it's definitely worth a listen

    These guys seem to do well with every other cd they put out. 15 was solid, start to finish, maybe even more so than the self-titled. i gave this one a coupla tries but it doesn't hold up. rescue me was really the only stand out. don't go away sounds like an attempt to get back on pop radio but it doesn't have the hook that sorry did. most of the lyrics are sappy and predictable if you are one to listen to lyrics, which i am. Unimpressive. Expand

    Really disappointing. I'm not sure what cd the critics listened to but it wasn't this one. And as far as putting Buckcherry and GNR is the same sentence...ridiculous! GNR was a great band. These guys are average at best. LISTEN before you buy this. Expand

    This album is terrible. The lyrics are trite and the music is Appetite for Destruction aping at its worst and most over polished.

    Bands like this need to give up, and further more those that think bands like this have talent need to take the time to understand music and then discover or make their own. Expand
