Stone Cold Love
Label: Spinefarm Records
These teen Brits seem equipped with chops to support their throwback pop-metal: "Lady of the Light" has a dynamic intro, and they're versatile enough to handle Black Crowes country funk, Free blooze or junior-varsity Zeppelin for a bar or two. "D***k, F**k, F***t" and "Road Rocket" are hard and speedy, there's exuberant Helix-type shouting, and the ballads are bearable. But sadly, every pocket the rhythm section finds has a hole to slip through. Memorable tunes might take a few more years seasoning. Meanwhile, somebody please introduce would-be Tyler-esque yelper Matt Jones to '70s Aerosmith.
