  • Summary: The sophomore effort from the Los Angeles rockers.

  1. Positive: 5 out of 11

  1. Time Bomb is loaded with two things that are markedly absent from most of today's hard rock scene: memorable melodies and a loose but swinging rhythmic foundation.
  2. While Buckcherry's second disc doesn't exactly advance the form, dirt-simple shout-alongs like "Time Bomb" and "Porno Star" make them real contenders for raunch rock's throw-up crown. [4/6/2001, p.120]
  3. Time Bomb packs an incendiary wallop that's as noisy as nighttime on the Fourth of July.
  4. Buckcherry now captures the decadence of seventies and eighties hard rock better than anyone who actually lived it.
  5. Ridin', Porn Star and Slammin' are as disposably trashy as their titles suggest, and even the trowelled-on angst of Slit My Wrists and Whiskey In The Morning sounds like a pool party at a Beverley Hills bordello.
  6. Although a less consistent effort as a whole, Time Bomb is a lot more fun than its predecessor and suggests capacity for songcraft not evident on the band's debut. [#154, p.66]
  7. 20
    Buckcherry aim to carry on the tradition laid out by the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Guns N' Roses -- extolling the virtues of sex, drugs, and rock and roll -- but listening to Time Bomb is a game of spot the rip-off.
