Follow up to the 2002 debut, sees 12 Stones continue in a similar vein. Crushing guitar empathising with commercial melodies ensures that those who follow the Wind-up roster closely won’t be disappointed. On the downside originality is somewhat lacking and the brute force on offer will alienate those with a penchant for the more textured retro alternative music. But lets not argue the finer points this record rocks! 12 Stones have presented themselves favourably in the public shop window as a result of tours with the likes of Creed and 3 Doors Down and vocalist Paul McCoy appeared alongside Amy Lee in the Evanescence video ‘Bring Me To Life’ receiving a vocal Grammy award as a result. The debut album has been steadily climbing the Billboard charts ever since. The release of ‘Potters Field’ is thus a well timed release showcasing the bands strengths on the excellent ‘Photograph’ or ‘Bitter’ where they come across as a more aggressive 3 Doors Down or on the opener ‘Shadows’ where the Nirvana undercurrent is given a modern rock twist. What 12 Stones lack in originality they more than make up for with consistency and conviction. The result! An unpretentious album that does exactly what it says on the tin
