Shooter Jennings - Summer of Rage

Waylon Albright "Shooter" Jennings (born May 19, 1979) is an American singer-songwriter formerly active in the country music and Southern rock genres. The only child coming from the loinfruit of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter.

Today i will put some focus on the album "Black Ribbons" the new concept album by Shooter Jennings with his band Hierophant. The album features dialogue written by horror author Stephen King, who also narrates the album. The album was released on March 2, 2010.

I have to admit it. Black Ribbons is a record i never saw coming from Shooter Jennings. But yet, here it is: Twenty tracks and 72 mins. So, is Black Ribbons a great record? Well, It's a challenging record, certainly, Shooter definitely deserves a tip of the hat for having the courage to undertake this project. This record has a futuristic sound with spaced out progressive rock but with a great feeling, but some country rock elements still peep through from time to time. Its a big risk the this record ends up in the bargain box as it's not the country rock as many fans expected this should be. When it works, it really works. And even when it doesn't, it's still pretty damn good. Enjoy todays tune.
