Stereophonics - Language, Sex, Violence, Other - Cd
Stereophonics' fifth album will inevitably provide more material for the band's critics, if only for the fact its title has clearly been rather lazily inspired from the back of a rental video case. The music within, however, is anything but laid-back: the employment of Argentinean drummer Javier Weyler, who replaces founding member Stuart Cable, sees the band venturing further along the hard-rock path that spawned previous denim-and-leather-clad tracks like "Moviestar". The first three tracks find frontman Kelly Jones is in downbeat mood, his vocals drawled and insouciant, and his lyrics distinctly sour--take the raging "Doorman", where he rails against some faceless bouncer with surprising and rather paranoid ferocity: "You like nothing more than to break my face/ You like to throw me out on the street!". Things sweeten towards the album's middle, providing two of the album's stand-out tracks: the chiming, electronic-tinged "Dakota" is a light, buoyant anthem that deserves to be a hit, while "Rewind" is a reflective moment that pricks memories of mid-period U2. But on the whole, Language. Sex. Violence. Other? isn't an album out to win new fans it's an album that caters to the Stereophonics' rock faithful, and it's them who'll really dig it. --Louis PattisonSee all Product description

"Superman" is a laid back, swaggering song, full of confidence. Kelly Jones sings falsetto excellently. "Doorman" instantly explodes into life, probably the heaviest, most rocking track on the album. Guitarists (like me) will love the scorching solo at the end. "Brother" and "Devil" are both straight up rock songs, catchy and full of assurance.
"Dakota", the first single, is a fantastic song, with hooking melodies and strong lyrics. "Rewind" is a slower paced song that still fits on the album and is more listenable than anything (except Madame Helga) off the last album.
"Girl" is a short, explosive song, full of thrashy guitars and agression.
Now for a suprise. Dakota is not the best song on the album. The best is lurking at track 10 and is called "Deadhead" Man, this song is awesome! The intro, carried by this bass, is full of menace, hinting at whats to come. There are wailing distorted lead guitar moments everywhere. The verses are sharp and melodic and the chorus is superb, very catchy. It ends with a cool guitar solo and an extended chorus. This is definatly the best song the 'phonics have ever written.
So there are the highlights, but all the songs are good. Buy this album, it rocks!
I've read previous reviews and I agree, P&C and WGA were awesome albums with excellent lyrics and catchy tunes. But I enjoyed JEEP and YGGTTCB as well. They weren't the same style and Language... is different again. But One thing that nobody can disagree with is that the 'Phonics have given their fans 5 good quality albums which cater for any mood you can be in.
Highlights on this album for me were Devil, Superman and obviously Dakota. I think this album should please current fans as it shows that Kelly etc are not getting stuck in a rut music wise, they are trying different styles and personally I think this one quite suits them. One thing's for certain, it shows up the manufactured pop that dominates today's chart for the rubbish it really is. This is music.
The reviews on here tend to be long time phonics fans saying this album rocks or "it sucks and they were far better back in the day when tv was black and white yadda yadda"
If you have no prior exposure to the band and want to know if this is any good if you aint a preformed fan then .... IT IS!
This album rocks, pure and simple. They may have made better albums and I will certainly be checking out their back catalogue but this album still rocks. Dakota is getting airtime now and I 1st heard it on tv, having got hold of the album there are a number of classic tracks - Rewind, Lolita, Feel and the winner Dakota. A thoroughly enjoyable ablum, has been playing non stop on my ipod for a week now, the sort of album that you can kill an hour with and not notice it pass.
For the people who claim to have hit the "next" button 11 times after 10 seconds of each track ..... well ok but thats hardly giving it a chance, the best albums I have ever heard have bitten me second or third play. if it hits you 1st time its usually disposable pop you will be sick of after half a dozen plays. This album has me hooked.
And if you happen to really hate it theres always ebay.
Highly recommended, by the way "deadhead" is superb also - playing now!!!!!
Fans of the Stereophonics earlier works like Word Gets Around and Performance and Cocktails were disappointed with albums like Just Enough Education to perform where the Stereophonics stopped being a "rock band" for a while.
However this album proves once again that the Stereophonics are the greatest UK rock band so far in the 21st century.
