From madnesstocreation.net:

Listening to the local modern rock radio station, sometimes I get tired of this worn out genre, yet on occasion, there comes across a band that captures your attention.  For that to happen, the arrangements and lyrics have to be well-thought out and crafted together nicely.  Here comes Walsell, United Kingdom’s one Stone Broken who have released their album entitled “Ain’t Always Easy” via Spinefarm/Universal Music Records.

Stone Broken is composed of Rich Moss on vocals/guitars, Chris Davis on guitars/vocals, Kieron Conroy on bass, and Robyn Haycock on drums/vocals.  They have an arena rocking sound combined with well thought out arrangements and they are making waves as they have been sharing the stage with Adelitas Way on a nationwide American tour.

“Ain’t Always Easy” begins with the track entitled “Worth Fighting For”.  It tells the story of Rich Moss about how he fought tooth and nail to get into the music industry and play music for a living.  Based on the guitar intro and Moss’s strong vocals, Stone Broken is well on its way to accomplish just that, the guitar layering between Moss and Davis.  The chorus is that electrical charge that is needed to ignite the whole damn place as it will cause people to rise up, stand up and be counted, and make their voices heard in a generational battlecry.  It is that kind of song where the more you hear it the more you like it, and I’ve learned that’s how Stone Broken operates, because they are so infectious.

Not only is the theme of persistence explored but the themes of sensual lust and love are explored in the tracks “Let Me See It All” and “Anyone”.  While, “Let Me See It All” has that feeling that one would get while listening to “Something In Your Mouth” by Nickelback, “Anyone” brings back that cool rock ballad that a metalhead wouldn’t feel ashamed rocking out to because it feels genuine coming from the vocals and lyrics of Moss in the song.  That’s what a good love song should do and Stone Broken could break out if more people know about this song.  It has that feeling of sunsets and embers dancing about a fire alongside the beach to it.

The guitars and that feeling of having this life worth fighting for is still explored in the track “Doesn’t Matter”.  The guitars are loud, the rhythm is at its perfect timing, and the chorus soars, and let me tell you, the guitars in the bridge will send that frisson down your spine and allow you to get lost in the music.  Again, that’s what a good rock song does.

Stone Broken might be the one that tells the music world that rock music is alive and well with their offering of “Ain’t Always Easy”.  Madness To Creation rates this album an 8.5/10 stars because it will continue to grow on you with each listen.  Check out the track listing below.

Nickelback, dat U?

Ha ha, I was just typing this same thing. 

They do a fine variant of NB, but isn't one enough?

 

The girl drummer is a nice bonus however.

    • Wow... this one sounds really good. Especially that first song. I hear HEAT in that too.  Will listen to this ASAP.
    • Just wondering why you choose a couple songs from an album, and not all the good songs from an album. Also, I see you picking one album from a band that falls in that timeframe, and not all the albums. How comprehensive do you want this playlist?  Anyway, I see you have nothing from Transit, so you should add some from them. I know their albums are on the Spotifies. Also, I wasn't aware the Brunette demos were on there, so that's good to know. 
    • This is hilarious, and finally seeing one of these phony liberal pussys getting whats so coming to them. Blaming it on Trump supporters. LOL love it    
    • HA HA HA I FUCKING LOVE IT MAN!!  
    • These are a few more I just heard off my cassette tapes my step dad gave me, quit a bizarre mix of music, though all stands in the Pop/Hi-Tech/AOR/Rock field, but really is all over the road as far as being specific, I will remind you, these are all bands and songs I have never heard of, or heard ever before, so I'm sure there will be bands you have all heard, and I'm just a fucking idiot, and my musical knowledge is a 2 on a 10 scale, none of these are off my you tube channel, I haven't had the chance to record a lot of the tapes onto my computer yet, so I am going with the ones I could already find on You Tube, which there aren't many, the 1st one is off a soundtrack from a movie I think I saw in like 1st  grade called The Sluggers Wife, it was sang by Rebecca De Mornay, who was also in the movie(the hot bitch from Risky Business) it's an extremely plain and simple pop song, like most pop songs, but for whatever reason, I'm a fan of brainless pop songs, especially when sung by females, and from the 80's, so I'm just including it on the off chance any of you are fags like I am, and like cheesy pop songs, the rest are just bands I never heard of, and dug the shit I heard on these tapes, I'll try and get all the bands that weren't on YouTube uploaded and put on here, shit takes time.     Never even heard of this dude, but i didnt hear a bad song on the whole tape, i gotta look into this guy, I might be a huge fan.              
    • Oh WORD? Where the hell did this come from?! Great stuff!
    • Goodness me, the man is back with a bang!
