Another good initiative as regards Compilation is Z Roxx’s one which offers to us a rather interesting range of current southern groups suppose to releive Lynyrd, Allman and more...? If however these great bands decide to leave what is far from being obvious, and it is so much better after all, there is place for everyone!! Right, now i think important to ear the groups following after Skynyrd, Allman’s, Hatchet, and more...and incontestably we find nice songs. And as thanks to this Compilation, we can have a rather precise idea of it, we would be thus wrong to miss these new bands.
It is not less than 15 bands which are proposed to us and which, overall offer Southern Rock of good level, difficult then to give preferences objectively but it is nevertheless rather logical to underline a little more Ghost Riders with Roots, (extracted from their superb and recent album Fortune Teller), Southern Rock All Stars with Stump Jumpin correspond rather well to the spirit of the disc, just as Dukes Nightmare (Yesterday is Gone), Bounty Hunter (The Bigger you Love) and Sulentic Brothers (South Bend), but my preference goes on 2 groups which I discovered thanks to this compilation, first of all Blackberry Smoke with Sanctified, perhaps more Hard that southern rock but superbly composed, and especially Medecine Hat with Too Far Gone, Classic Rock filled of feeling that I hasten to ear it again ; then, advised acquisition, risk of disappointment limited.
