8/10 Staff review, 15 August 2014

Blackberry Smoke are, against all odds, a band from the oughties. Their brand of super-charged Southern rock and country journeying suggests that Neil Young's "Southern Man" clearly passed them by; they probably still ring in radio stations to hear Lynyrd Skynyrd songs. The dudes in this band all have either a beard, super greasy long hair, or sunglasses -- you have to pick one.

Self-imposed cliches aside, though, 'Leave a Scar Live: North Carolina' is a perfectly fun record, full of guitar rawk showboating, twinkling piano and vocals that recall Dave Grohl's venom tempered with Jerry Garcia's softer tones. In all honesty, it's the hard rock cliches that make it all so enjoyable: the guitar riffs sound as laboured over as picking food out of your teeth is, and the showy cadences at the end of each song are a must -- the thundering drums of course lead to an audience cheer and a friendly howl of “HOW YA’ DOIN’” from the band. If Blackberry Smoke are suited to any setting, it’s a live one, where they can sing their hard-edged songs about partying (that would otherwise fit snugly into the discography of Rascal Flats -- it’s a country conspiracy) and have the crowd sing them right back. Even with all the organ in the world, Blackberry Smoke sound more traditional than a newer country band like Wilco, but that hardly matters. A good time is had by all.
