POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

May 09, 1999|Steve Hochman

** Buckcherry, "Buckcherry," DreamWorks. An unapologetic ode to cocaine? A raspy-voiced singer begging "do it to me all night long"? Sunset Strip rock, complete with circa-'73 and '83 guitar drive and un-PC attitudes, is back with this Angeleno outfit--though not the hair, fortunately. Think of them as younger cousins to the Black Crowes. And forgive them some sins in light of the earnest spirit and arena-level ambition evident in every vibration of Joshua Todd's craggy vocal cords.
