Album Review

The U.K. may have struggled to find anything approaching an authentic rock star during its eight series of The X-Factor, but it's played a huge part in finding one for Australia's version in the shape of teenager Reece Mastin, who won the 2011 third series six years after moving with his family from Scunthorpe to the other side of the world. Following the formula of previous winner Altiyan Childs' debut, his self-titled first effort is a covers-heavy affair recorded in a staggeringly quick three days, but despite its rushed and predictable approach, it's a far more encouraging listen. That's partly down to Mastin, who possesses both a self-assured swagger far beyond his years and a powerful gritty voice, impressively showcased by the Steven Tyler-esque howls on his faithful take of Aerosmith's "Dream On," and a convincing Jared Leto impression on the rousing emo rock of 30 Seconds to Mars' "Closer to the Edge." And it's partly down to the production, which either instills the familiar material with a surprisingly raw energy, as on the proggy blues-rock of Wolfmother's "Joker & the Thief" and Guns N' Roses' glam-metal anthem' "Paradise City," or offers a new spin, as on "Stayin' Alive," which borrows the iconic guitar riff from Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" to transform the Bee Gees' disco classic into a dramatic slice of symphonic rock, and Maroon 5's "She Will Be Loved," given the stripped-back treatment with the aid of some melancholic Celtic violins. Mastin doesn't always manage to translate his talent contest promise so successfully. Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" and Alanis Morissette's "Ironic" are turned into obnoxious, early-2000s-style, bratty, pop-punk rackets, the Script's "Breakeven" and Bon Jovi's "Always" are nothing more than glorified karaoke, while the only original composition, the winner's single "Good Night," might as well be a cover, such is its blatant similarity to P!nk's "Raise Your Glass." But considering its hurried inception, this is a surprisingly strong debut which suggests the apprentice rock star is capable of turning into the real deal. ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

Good Night

Although there are some similarities between Reeces' 'Good Night' and Pinks' 'Raise Your Glass' , there are lots of songs that have a similar sound out there, but are quite different. (None come to mind at this time, sorry) However, I think if Pink had been in the 'X Factor' series, she would have lost to a number of the final contestants and she has been in the industry for some time. Here is a young man entering arguably one of the toughest industries there are and showcasing his incredible talent for the first time. He deserves the chance to grow into this industry and make something of his gift. In all too many cases these days, some artists have maybe two good songs on their albums with the rest being less than average and expect the general public to purchase these, while all the songs on his album are great and performed in his own original style, ie., making them his own and I will buy the cd as soon as I can get my hands on it. Well done.
