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

  1. 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.

    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.'
  3. 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]
