Buckcherry - Jackhammering Corporate Rock From Under The Bank Vault Page 2
By Martin Popoff

Time Bomb is more a case of subtle adjustments than a full-scale overhaul. Josh makes it clear that the band want people to always recognize a Buckcherry song when they hear one. Oddly, the album might contain a few more pop (or even 1973 glam!) melodies, and it might be a little bluesier, but then again, there's something more vicious about it as well. Maybe heightened emotions of all types is what happens when you spend more time on things, which seems to be the main operative versus the self-titled debut.

"Well, I think we took a little more time in the actual recording process. When we made the first record we just tried to capture the band," laughs Keith, suddenly aware he's talking interview clichˇs, which prompts Josh to say "excuse us; we just know we've got a lot of interviews. This is the first of a lot..."

"But we like talking about ourselves," says Keith recovering his composure. "So when we made the first record the goal was to just kind of capture the band, the essence of what we were doing live and get that across. On this record, we spent more time with the instrumentation, more time working out parts. Obviously Yogi (new guitarist) joined the band after the first record, so having him in the fold brought a whole new sense of musicality to what we were doing, another voice on the guitar and other instruments."
