This review is from: Graffiti on the Train (Audio CD)
In my humble view, this is the best Stereophonics album they've produced by some way. I like their other work, but I find that only certain songs get played after a while (More Life in a Tramp's Vest being one), possibly due to the 'hooks' taking something from the sentiment of the songs, which end up at the far end of my 'soft rock' playlist, with the CDs in a box in the garage. This album is an altogether more mature affair that immediately hooked me, but then offers more with each listen. It is layered, expressive and durable, as well as being one of the few albums that I listen to from beginning to end each time. At a time when lots of my favourite bands from my youth have become worse, comfortable and more desperate, the Stereophonics have become stronger & have grown with me. Great stuff. The other albums have now moved back up the playlist, by the way, and the CDs are in the car... well worth a re-listen if yours are gathering dust like mine were.
