Album Review

Cinderella was often criticized as being too derivative of Aerosmith, so you know the pop-metal scene of the late '80s was getting spread thin when a band that modeled itself after Cinderella appeared on the scene, Britny Fox. Comprised of several members that were actual early members of Cinderella, Britny Fox's star burned out quickly, although they managed to score a Top 40 hit with their 1988 self-titled debut (which spawned such oh-so-challenging MTV favorites as "Girlschool" and "Long Way to Love"). But with outlets like VH1 Classic reintroducing many forgotten hair metal bands of the '80s to the early 21st century, Britny Fox was back in business, resulting in all-new studio albums, like 2003's Springhead Motorshark. The group's original focal point, singer/guitarist Dean Davidson, is still absent from the proceedings, as his replacement, Tommy Paris, remains onboard.

While they certainly won't be mistaken for Slayer anytime soon, heavy riffs replace the melodicism of their earlier albums, especially on such tracks as the album opening "Pain" and the title track (which contains some nifty Zeppelin-esque guitar work).

Naming themselves Britny Fox after one of singer Dizzy Dean Davison's Welsh ancestors, the band copped Cinderella's theatrical look and recorded their first demo, In America, with other members including Billy Childs on bass and Johnny Dee on drums.
