5.0 out of 5 stars Stereophonics give all of us a rocking good time, 17 May 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: You Gotta Go There to Come Back (Audio CD)
Kelly Jones' songwriting has grown sice the last album "Just Enough Education to Perform" (which was mostly slow and acoustic - not the Welsh band's proudest moment) to a more rocky 60s/70s inspired collection of catchy guitar tunes. It opens with the long (too long in my view) "Help Me" - a fast moving rocky anthem. Also like this are "Madame Helga", "High as the Ceiling", and "Jealousy". These are mixed with calmer, relaxing songs, namely "Maybe Tomorrow" and "Nothing Precious at all" and these are pulled off. Mr. Jones' lycrics are however not up to their previous greats, commenting on lives going on around him in a story like fashion. More sex and drugs references are made here than before, and these I feel aren't necesary. But songs such as "Since I Told you its Over" and "Rainbows and Pots of Gold" talk of heartbreak in a personal way, and the words of "Getaway" are cleverly thought out and meaningful.
Overall, there is little to say thats negative about this album, good solid Stereoponics stuff. Shame about "I'm Alright" though. This is an album I recomend, it turned me into a 'phonics fan and I am sure it will get you dancing around to it. Well done 'Phonics!
