Black Ribbons (Explicit)

Black Ribbons by Shooter Jennings
Released: Mar 2010
Label: 429 Records
Various life changes and a new band inspire Waylon's outlaw scion to ditch country (save for intermittent hints of guitar twang) and dive full-bore into apocalyptic metal and nuclear-winter grunge in the general vicinity of Alice In Chains, Queensryche, Soundgarden, '90s Metallica, Use Your Illusion, or Buckcherry. Like The Who Sell Out, the set is ambitiously structured as a radio broadcast, only this time with mock DJ Stephen King reciting doomsday police-state rants between songs -- which manage to rage more coherently, and pump more melodically, as the album progresses.
