|I don't like too much music after '93, but Lit Up was fun to listen to. Well, without the editing.

|This album is so damn good. It's just really nice to have a new band come out that sounds like rock n roll! There isn't a bad song on this album. Terry Date (the producer) did a great job. He also produced one of the only grunge bands I can stomach (Soundgarden). I really like Buckcherry's second album aswell, but Terry didn't produce that one. I don't know if that is the reason why it didn't get the push like the first album did, but Time Bomb is a great album too.

|When this CD came out, I didn't understand what all the fuss was about. Now that I've had some time to really give it a chance...I still don't understand what all the fuss was about. Yes, compared to all the alternative crap on the radio at the time, this may have seemed like a breath of fresh air, but taken on its own terms, it's just a ho-hum hard rock album. Thankfully, the band improved on their 2nd effort, "Time Bomb," which could go toe-to-toe with some of G'N'R's best.

|I just got an acoustic version of "Check Your Head" and let me tell you, it's f##kin' great! These guys are so cool!!

|This is new age sleaze and it is brillant!, with the big production that the late 80's and early 90's bands didn't have...

|Great CD, Timebomb is just a little better. But These guys are just the greatest!

|Let me just say that I feel this is a classic album! When I listen to this album I hear heart and soul. I know that alot of people on this site like the 2nd album better but thats because they are hair groupies. The truth is, this album is very deep and I feel it is the latest 5 star album. It took alot of "miles" to make such an album. Good job guys!!

|I too like this one a bit better than the second, although both rock. My only concern is if they truly party as much as their lyrics would indicate, how many more discs can we expect from them?
||Date: August 15, 2002 at 10:34|
|i agree with jason on this album its really good to hear a modern band that plays rock n roll and not this shit grunge or the even more shit (hard to believe) nu-metal i dissagree with his views over the second album but this is what reviewing is all about and what makes it cool other peoples opinions

| A killer debut from a kick ass band! There's a little bit of everything on this album.From "Lit up" to "Dead again" this thing kicks some pretty mean ass-Too bad they broke up.
||Date: January 8, 2003 at 7:18|
|A mediocre release at best. Sure this album is miles above many of the stuff played on radio today,they tend to stick out in the current stale music climate. However, Buckcherry would have faced stiff competition and been lost in the shuffle back in '91.

|DEMOLEDOR,CAŅERO,UN AUTENTICO DISCO DE R,N,R,DE LO MEJOR QUE HA SALIDO ULTIMAMENTE."LIT UP" ES UNA BOMBA,"DIRTY MIND" ES OTRA BOMBA PERO CON MUCHA METRALLA,UN 10/10.SLEAZY TOTAL.

|A great release amoungst all the garbage rock that flooded the 90's market. Slightly reminds me of a cross between G 'n' R and Hanoi Rocks. Great debut which led to an even better follow up in Time Bomb. The first album was mostly sleeze in nature, but time bomb had a little more punkish vibe with it that I liked quite a bit. If you are a fan of the sleeze era club bands, these guys won't disappoint.

|i like buckcherry , marvelous 3, lit, motley crue, but i also like journey,foreigner, frontline, newman, ..and i'm from belgium too..i must be really sick... anyhow, pre - buckcherry slamhound was cool, but this was the 15 minutes of fame for joshua todd..some excellent songwriting on this disc: 'drink the water', 'lawless and lulu' , 'for the movies' and 'related'. this is my kinda rock n roll.. 9/10
||Date: August 24, 2003 at 18:00|
|This is probably one of the best CDs to come out in the last 15 years. Songs like Lit Up, Crushed, and Dead Again rock. There are also some good mellow moments with Check Your Head and Lawless & Lulu.

|Brillian debut, it is a pitty we've lost them after 2nd album, cause they were really one of the best bands in its style. This album, 9 from 10.

|For the record, everybody...Buckcherry wasn't a new band..they actaully formed in 1992 and called themselves "Slamhound"...in 1995 they changed their name to Buckcherry.

|Oh yeah!.... Well, do you know why they changed their name to 'Buckcherry'???.... Well let me tell ya... They got that name from a transvestite (or so they say).

|I'm gonna get it,cause I heard most of it and to me it is a breath of fresh air!!!!!Great 80's Hard rock sound!!!Worth the money.Guitars sound killer!

|This was supposed to be that album that brought back good old Guns N Roses type rock. The problem is you have a lead single, "Lit Up", that ends up having the chorus deleted when it was played on radio and tv due to the mentioning of Cocaine. That and also the reaosn that very little besides "Lit Up" and "For The Movies" stick out is why this album was a dissapointment. 4/10

|Nothing new here but Buckcherry is (was) 100% a great rock band. Joshua Todd has a great voice and charisma. This band deserves respect for what he delivers is pure rock pleasure. I'm dreaming of a band with Joshua Todd + Ted Nugent + Jake E.Lee + Tony Franklin and Brian Downey.
||Date: March 15, 2005 at 22:57|
|Not really my fave type of music, but this is a good one for what it is. 'Lit up', 'Related', 'Dirty mind' are all great, especially that first song. If you like Hardcore Superstar, Backyard Babies, New American Shame... well, IMO this is probably the best of that bunch and well worth your while. Solid rock n'roll.

|Nice cd..straight r'n'r in your face..A++!!

|anyone think this sounds like black crowes cranked up a few notches?

|ahh yes thank god for this at the time everything was all alternative at the time so when i first seen lit up on headbangers ball i light up! unfortunatly they never made anything that good again light up check your head and for the movies are my favourites i don't think this band would've cut it in the 80's but they came along at the perfect time and put some fun back in into rock again

|Yeah pie75 this band and their debut caused some fuss back when it came out..."Lit Up" has been the anthem of the band ever since,a killer track 4 sure..other killing shots are "Crushed","Dead Again","Dirty Mind"(my fave along with Lit Up) & "Related"..Josh Todd is a showman onstage but shamely as pie75 said their next releases never hit the big time like this one...recommended album 4 sure...92/100

|I actually read about these guys first in Rolling Stone, of all places. They were featured in some kind of "bands to watch" piece in late '98, so obviously, they had the backing to get into that magazine, and to get their songs on the radio. But for every review proclaiming the saviors of straight-up rock 'n' roll," there was another saying they were stale and overrated. I've always found them hit or miss, but this first disc is probably their best. Kinda reminds me of a poor man's Four Horsemen, more than the usual Crue or GnR comparisons. "Lit Up" is, of course, a classic, but really, the whole first half is good withthe exception of 'Check Your Head" (Buckcherry doesn't do "serious" very well), and some good tracks are sprinkled through the second half. I always thought New American Shame put out a better disc in this style back in '99, though.

|I don't know if you guys who don't live in America, like Rick or Charpenay, are familiar with the "white trash bash." Seems to be a uniquely American trend, where people will throw a party at whcih the theme is to pretend you're all ignorant, trailer-dwelling degenerate. You dress in your rattiest clothes, drink the cheapest beer you can find, and there's much debate about what the soundtrack for the evening's festivities should be. And these are people who would never wear these clothes, drink that beer or listen to this music under any other circumstances, except when they want to be "ironic" and pretend they're lowlife garbage that they actually look down on. In other words, the exact opposite of the kind of pale-ale-and-artichoke-dip parties they normally go to. Pretty lame, really. But, if you're going to host such an event, some Buckcherry MUST be on the playlist, absolutely.

|1999 was between Westworld and Buckcherry for my favourite release. Buckcherry gets the nod though due to a very cool album cover (yes it counts, it's a whole package...) and the song "Lit Up" which is about as drug-fueled sleazy as it can get. Just an amazing song and good album.
