REFRESHINGLY, X Factor winner Reece Mastin co- writing his entire first original album means it sounds like a 17- year- old bratty apprentice rock star, not someone putting words in his mouth.
And Mastin’s ADHD sees him clash rock with reggae ( Addictive ), horror rock and dubstep ( Beautiful Nightmare ) and metal shredding on She’s a Killer. And the kid can wail. Rock$ tar channels Teenage Dirtbag
and Sk8er Boi, while loved- up ballad Stars doesn’t suck.
Sounds like teen spirit.
