    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]

    I hate Buckcherry. I really hate Buckcherry, and not really for the reasons you think. I hate Buckcherry because 20 years from now when I sayI hate Buckcherry. I really hate Buckcherry, and not really for the reasons you think. I hate Buckcherry because 20 years from now when I say Buckcherry sucks my kids will confusingly argue, " What are you talking about Lit Up is a great song." I really can't argue with that, I thing Lit UP is a very good song. Now if today I say Buckcherry is a good band people will be even more confused because they are know as a terrible band. Well, which is it Buckcherry? If we were just going off Black Butterfly I think the answer is obvious. They would be considered one of the worst bands of all time. After about 10 minutes into listening to this I wanted someone to Rescue Me from this tsunami of garbage. The only way one could possibly enjoy this music is if he or she is Too Drunk to stand. There is just a large degree of emptiness that consumes the tone and sound of the songs. It almost sounds like they spent 35 minutes writing the music. The lyrics are stupid and the overall sound is lame. I you want repetitively empty music in your life Buckcherry has you covered. Full Review »

    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 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. Full Review »

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