"On 2, you can hear the band own their music, own their sound, and it is an astonishing musical group unlike any other and they are absolutely the kings of their genre," says producer Kevin Shirley. "I wanted to explore more of the Bonham sound and more importantly each member of the band gets a unique opportunity to shine, but it has the distinct sound that is BCC."
