Buckcherry, 'Black Butterfly' (Atlantic/Eleven Seven)

7
Black Butterfly
Critical Mass
Label: Atlantic/Eleven Seven

by Jaan Uhelszki

Dirty-minded, unrepentant, and awash in bad-boy charm, Black Butterfly makes you forget hair metal's demise was more than 15 years ago. Boiling over with twitchy guitars and naughty propositions that'd make Steven Tyler blush -- if he didn't demand a cut of the Aerosmith-indebted "A Child Called 'It'" -- these Los Angelenos deliver a brash follow-up to 2006's platinum-selling 15. Spewing filthy oaths and sweet promises, sometimes in the same line, frontman Josh Todd does his best to give misogyny a good name.
