    Album number eight from Zakk Wylde sees him cranking up the macho guitar heroics to superhuman levels. [Oct. 2010, p. 103]

    Order Of The Black will keep diehard Black Label Society fans happy, but it's still some way from being a truly classic release. [28 Aug 2010, p.53]
  3. As pure music, Black Label Society remain as effective as they ever were on Order of the Black.

    Giving this bad boy a 9 because all I hear about is people complaining when bands "try something different". BLS doesn't do that with thisGiving this bad boy a 9 because all I hear about is people complaining when bands "try something different". BLS doesn't do that with this album. They stick with the basics like in the first few BLS albums. Nothing but metal with no BS to comb through. I commend Zakk Wylde & BLS for releasing a bare bones, heavy metal album with no frills.
