As already stated, Coldplay, Oasis, Radiohead and Kings Of Leon are all bigger than Stereophonice here.
They're at a strange level in the UK, there's no doubt that 'Language Sex Violence Other?' and the huge single 'Dakota' saved their career here after two DIABOLICAL albums in 'JEEP' and 'You Gotta Go There To Come Back'.
But i can see them happily doing a yearly/bi-yearly arena tour without ever troubling the singles chart again. I can't see them getting any bigger now, they have definately peaked.

Lyrically, Kelly has always had the gift. But sometimes the actual 'songs' don't do the words justice. 'LSVO?' reinvented them a little with a slicker image and sound and the songs benefited immensely.

A pretty ok band, but dissapointingly they don't reach thier full potential often enough and have definatley passed the peak of thir career. I'd still take the time to catch live if they were at a festival that i was at though.

ps. I have met Adam (the recently recruited 2nd guitarist) numerous times (he's from Birmingham and i've played a few gigs with him), and that whole set-up is a bit wierd. His band supported Stereophonics a few times. He looks like Kelly, his onstage mannerisms are exactly like Kelly's. He properly idolises him. Now he's a fulltime member.
Tenner says sucking Kelly's cock was the deal-maker.

I got it yesterday and I liked right away "I Got Your Number" "100mph" and "Stuck In A Rut"

I really hope they will tour outside the UK with this album, I want to see them live

It's almost the only album I'm listening to since I got it and I can say that I really like it. There's not another "Stone" or "Lady Luck" for me, but it's really good.

And good news for me, they will play in my town in February. Tickets will be on sale Friday. I hope I will be lucky...It's a really small venue, 2000 persons when it's sold out.

I am so happy we have a Stereophonics thread.

I've liked them since I first heard from them.

Carli, I am finally going to see them live at the O2 in March after I arrive from Argentina. I can't wait!

Aloha !

I'll be seeing them for the first time as well, I've got tickets for their show in Amsterdam. I might go see another show if I can get someone to join me.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan
