Biography

Stereophonics release their eagerly awaited new album ‘Graffiti On A Train' on March 4th on their own Stylus Records label.

Kelly Jones has been in this London pub before. But that’s probably not surprising seeing that Jones, and his band Stereophonics, have been nearly everywhere before.

In the past 15 years they’ve toured virtually all over the world, ... Read more in Amazon's Stereophonics Store

Product Description

Product Description

Eighth studio album from the Welsh rock band. Featuring the singles 'In a Moment' and 'Indian Summer', the album entered the UK Albums Chart at #3. The album has been described as being 'more grown up' than previous Stereophonics albums. All songs are written by frontman Kelly Jones. This deluxe edition features a second disc with six bonus tracks.

BBC Review

The eighth studio album from Stereophonics finds Kelly Jones at a crossroads.

Post-greatest hits, Graffiti on the Train comes out on the band's own label Stylus Records and presumably affords Jones the time and space to carve a new niche.

And somehow, just about, he does. This is, inevitably, a more grown-up record than we've heard from him before.

Not that Jones has ever been anything less than serious. But Graffiti on the Train feels relaxed, at terms with its place in the world – and if that risks longueurs of steadfastly ordinary rock, then them's the breaks.

Its opening is typical, with We Share the Same Sun turning a bluesy guitar over and over against sinister keys – no quick rewards here.

Later, the album broods, as on the semi-gothic Take Me, or the doo-wopping trad-rock Been Caught Cheating – the latter eventually erupting into a more familiar, anthemic chorus. Not exactly deft melodically, it nevertheless rouses like all the chunkiest Stereophonics favourites.

Some tracks display greater focus, with Catacomb in particular trying to find some common ground between Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Radiohead's Electioneering, and achieving something close.

It's followed by Roll the Dice where a Supergrass-y vamp morphs into the kind of quasi-operatic shapes Muse might reach for, and both songs border on the exciting. Similar is the motorik last minute of Violins and Tambourines.

More representative though is the Traveling Wilburys chug-along of Indian Summer, with its vague, unobtrusive appeal and sense of weathered comfort. It feels as if it should come from a band a generation older, but Stereophonics are heading in that direction.

For all the occasional pyrotechnics, Graffiti on the Train is clearly the work of a man and an outfit that's done the rock'n'roll thing and is now easing into the next step. This is a solid enough start.

This album marks a departure (no pun intended) from the previous write - record- tour cycle and the extra time taken to develop the sound is very evident. This is a diverse, melodic, discordant, filmic album spanning from vocal led ballad to blues to strings to rock. It is well worth a listen...but take your time and have a little patience it is a grower.

I have been a fan since hearing the first note of Word Gets Around but to be honest I had been a little disappointed with the recent album releases of late. I think I was almost ready to give up on Jones' song writing abilities, but alas, Graffiti on the Train comes out!

Again, its different! But its not rushed this time. Im humming nearly every song off this album to myself constantly and had the album on loop since receiving it in the post. Each listen brings new depth to the songs. If you're after quick 3 minute rock songs liken to WGA then this isnt for you... but what this is is properly constructed mature songs with a story and a edge. Out of ten songs there are atleast 6 songs that could be singles.

Do not listen to NME! this is quality! Enjoy

This is an excellent album with some strong tracks. Especially like the story telling aspect and the wonderful moving sound of 'Graffiti on the Train', just beautiful. Of course Indian Summer is the reason I initially bought as such a catchy tune that stays in your head all day.

For years now I've been of the opinion that Kelly Jones is the best Rock Vocalist the UK has to offer, and on this album he has the chance to prove that. The guitar has been reined in quite a bit, compared to other Stereophonics albums, which gives Kelly the chance to show off his remarkably soulful voice to its best effect. The title track is an instant classic, and the bluesy ballad "Been Caught Cheating" is another stunner. If, like me, you've generally preferred the band's mellower tunes, then you will love this album.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By New Kid in Town on 29 July 2014
Format: Audio CD
A little uneven and disappointing.

Having thoroughly enjoyed the bulk of their pre-greatest hits work, they seemed to ran out of steam and like many fans, despite a lingering fondness for their best (though always unfairly critically maligned) work and of them as a great live act and a very likeable band, did not feel inspired to buy their latter albums.

Having seen such good reviews for this album, my hopes were high, but I have to say - I am a little disappointed. Some tracks work better than others and some almost work ('In a moment' and 'Been caught cheating' stand out to me as album highlights), but this album lacks a certain sparkle which made their best work so likeable, no matter what those darn critics said. There is nothing quite so convincingly bluesy as 'Maybe tomorrow' or rousing as 'Bartender and the thief' or rocking as anything on the 'Sex, language, violence, other' album or as moving and soul searching as 'Traffic' or sarcastically but infectiously cheery as 'Have a nice day' - get the picture?

Not a bad album, but nothing to rival them at their best.

I loved this album from the first time I heard it. I am a huge fan, so I know my opinion is biased, but I believe this is a great piece of work by the band. It has something for all emotions, it rocks, it soothes, there are happy tunes and sad, dark ones, but truly wonderful in all. Great bass lines, superb guitar solos, the drumming (by Javier Weyler) is immense, and of course Kelly Jones vocals. For me, a stunning album. Stereophonics have their haters, but don't listen to them, make up your own mind. I have had the priviledge of hearing these tracks live now too, and they sound fantastic! Five stars from me, well deserved.
