You may like classic rock, but I bet you don't like it nearly as much as Tony Dallas Reed. The Mos Generator frontman's new project, the two man Stone Axe, is essentially a ten song lesson on what The Riff was like when mutton chop'd giants walked the earth. Highlights? The whole album, really. While Reed does an impressive job making it seem like the work of a full band knocking out the songs live in the studio (he's credited with all instruments), Brinkerhoff also deserves praise for his vocals. He falls somewhere between Paul Rodgers and David Corverdale back when he was taking orders from Richie Blackmore. It's a powerful voice that's as soulful as it is gritty. You like Cream, Free, Thin Lizzy, The Faces, AC/DC, and Deep Purple? You'll enjoy the hell out of this impressive debut.

Mos Generator frontman Tony Reed has released a very focused and to the point album with his new project. These guys lug out the massive sounds and they begin spinning them around, manipulating and pulling us with them. The music is basic at its core, but undeniably mesmerizing. Quite simply they know how to create the kind of music that celebrates the essence of what once made rock music great and craft the kind of guitar riffs that will pull in all who hear.
