CD Reviews

100% Bad to the bone. They could be called Badbone.

"Blackbone originated in Memphis, TN. Mostly playing the local club scene, band member ego's were the only thing keeping them from stardom. Listen closely, do you recognize the lead singers voice? You should! He is Josey Scott, lead singer of Saliva and co-singer of "Hero", off the Spiderman soundtrack. Only two of Blackbone's original four members went on to form Saliva. Lead singer Josey Scott and guitarist Chris Dabaldo. Just because Josey is lead for both bands, thier sound and lyrics are worlds apart. Homegrown's lyrics have many religious overtones. Don't let that keep you from listening. I myself am not real "Big" on religion, but find their use of religion very tasteful. If you've never heard them, you don't know what you are missing. I can only tell you to listen to the entire album. The song's are not the type that you hear the first time and love. You know the type. The type that get real old real quick. Blackbone should be playing on MTV, I would not miss Saliva. There is one thing that dissapoints me though. In their song "Falling Down", the lyrics read,"We are the brotherhood of Blackbone, and people we aint gonna ever change, backup, subtract, retract, or rearrange". Here we are, 7 years later, and they have changed, subtracted, and rearranged, into Saliva. Oh well. They still ROCK!!!!"
This is an awesome album!

"I met these guys in Dallas through a friend. The album, itself, is extremely alive and full of energy. However, seeing them live is so heart pounding that you can do nothing but jump around. They are heavy yet uplifting! They will get your body moving!"
