Vol. 10: Buckcherry's Reinvigorated Approach to Classic Rock 'n' Roll

Buckcherry's tenth studio album, 'Vol 10,' not only continues the band's legacy of energetic rock but also introduces an engaging, well-crafted musical experience. Opening with tracks "This And That" and the debut single "Good Time," the band immediately sets the stage for a captivating listen. Josh Todd's distinct vocals and the band's powerful instrumentation create an atmosphere of pure, unfettered rock right from the get-go.

Another standout track, "Keep On Fighting," serves as an exhilarating sonic journey—perfect for blaring on a car stereo. One commendable aspect of this album is its compactness; the band smartly opts for shorter, punchier songs without excessive solos or extended choruses, a choice that will appeal particularly to fans of the more straightforward rock music of the 1960s.

The album's sequencing is excellent. Following a melodic anthem in "Turn It On," the listener is treated to a slower, more thoughtful ballad, "Feels Like Love." This song is a refreshing pause and demonstrates Buckcherry's versatility, capturing the essence of classic '80s power ballads. The band doesn't shy away from showcasing their softer, more romantic side, revealing a multi-dimensional musical approach.

With "One And Only," the album moves in a more groove-oriented direction, echoing the rhythmic patterns of iconic tracks like The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil." Other singles like "Shine Your Light" and "Let's Get Wild" continue the album's high energy, combining solid drumming with engaging guitar work.

The album concludes with a bonus track—a cover of Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69," fittingly timed for summer listening.

Overall, 'Vol 10' is an impressively balanced blend of hard-hitting rockers and soulful ballads. With compelling musicianship and an ear for hook-laden melodies, Buckcherry delivers a record that not only reflects their past achievements but also sets the stage for their future.

In summary, 'Vol 10' is a worthwhile listen for both long-time fans and newcomers to Buckcherry's music, and it promises to be a summer staple for many.
