CD REVIEW: Love and the Death of Damnation by The White Buffalo

On Friday, February 12th, singer and songwriter Jake Smith of The White Buffalo released his 3rd album entitled “Love And The Death Of Damnation.”

I love the upbeat tone of the songs, the catchy lyrics and the deep, soulful voice of Smith paired with a guitar. You would never guess by his voice that he was born in Oregon and raised in California. His style is a great mixture of rock, folk and country music. I definitely feel like songs such as Dark Days, Go The Distance, I Got You, and Where Is Your Savior. The lyrics are amazing stories that leave a lasting impression. I found myself listening to Where Is Your Savior three times in a row. It is not my usual choice of music but I’m so glad I have been exposed to Smith and his unique talent.

Overall, I don’t have any criticism for this album aside from offering a clean version of the album for those listeners who may not want vulgar language a part of their listening experience.

Jake Smith has experienced success with his first two albums, landing his songson the hit TV show‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I have no doubts this album will bring additional success for The White Buffalo. Grab an ice-cold beer and take a listen. It’s available now for purchase online and on iTunes.
