As nu-metal moshed its way off this mortal coil a decade ago, Pontypridd's Lostprophets stepped into Britain's rock arena with ambitions and songs to fill that gap. They've largely succeeded, selling millions in the process, but Ian Watkins and gang's fourth album sounds as if it could have been written in 1999. That's not to write it off though: it is polished, but loud and occasionally pleasingly raw. The vowelly challenged Dstryr and Dstryr's cracking chorus remembers the pop elements that have helped the band create such a big (and young) fanbase. The speedy ska of For He's a Jolly Good Felon is catchy, too – but its lyrics about young thieves are so hamfisted they would even make Kelly Jones's "No" pile. Never mind: there's enough going on sonically to justify the reported half a million quid spent on it, and enough gruff pop moments to ensure continued teenage adoration. But if your eyeliner doesn't belong to your mum, you'll probably find it hard to love.
