But it's still a great album! You can actually get the re-release with an extra DVD with the videos for 'Madame Helga', 'Maybe Tomorrow', 'Since I Told You...' and 'Moviestar'. That might be more interesting to buy for fans who already have the album...That's what I did :)
I am a huge Stereophonics fan so ofcourse I love their album... But I also have a very broad taste in music. That might be why I think this is the BEST album from the band. I have been a fan since 'Word Gets Around'. Ofcourse I loved their raw rock style on both WGA and P&C, and their small town lyrics. That is definitely one of Kellys strong points as a songwriter.
With that said. I would be really dissapointed with a repeat of WGA or P&C for every new album. Wouldn't you?
With the 'JEEP' album they did change their style. They've just carried that on to the 'You Gotta Go...' album.
Ofcourse they'll change. They're older, have seen a lot of the world. A whole lot of new experiences. They probably get influenced by new music like everyone else. That's why I don't like comparing new albums with old ones, not with any band or artist...
Some of my favorites on 'You Gotta Go...' is 'Maybe Tomorrow' wich I fell in love with the first time I heard it. 'Rainbows and Pots of Gold', there's just something about that song that touches me. 'I'm Alright' have the same feel to it.
'I Miss You Now' are one of my favorites. Could've been even better with more blues influenced piano I think. Maybe hired in Jools Holland for the piano part :) 'Nothing Precious at All' is more like the earlier Phonics lyrically. Where Kelly is making up a whole story about this girl working in the coffee shop. A bit like 'Traffic' really. I also like the rockier stuff like 'Madame Helga', 'High as the Ceiling' and 'Jealousy'.

first off im a big rock and roll fan... always have been. favourite bands include oasis, the beatles, the jam, that kinda stuff. and ive followed stereophonics since word gets around.Because this album seemed to be the only one from what id call a rock and roll band coming out all year i snapped it up immediately. after been disapointed with the JEEP and reading the mixed review on amazon i approached with some sceptisicm. However i was left somewhat suprised with the results. Il take it track by track...
1.Help me! - this song is not exactly the most inspiring first track ever - personally vegas two times for me was the perfect way to kick start JEEP but this doesnt have the same effect and isnt ever going to be anyones favourite. its ok but its not anything special.
2.Maybe tommorow - now this is more like it. this one is showing this new direction Kelly Jones seems to be taking the band and one word comes to mind...smooth. you'll be humming it for days. great lyrics - very soulful.
3.Madame Helga - its just rock and roll innit?!?? loud, brash and exciting. excellent first single. should have been track 1...
4. Climbing the wall - good, nice song. keeps the momentum going - not really much to say about it - its just quite good.
5. Getaway - i really like this song its definately my 2nd favourite. it really hits the spot when your feeling down - lifts you up in the way a good rock song should. great lyrics, nice riff everythings in place... very good.
6.You stole my money honey - this is ok - tho i think will go the way of track 1.. very unspecial really. doesnt really grab youu but its likeable enough.
7.Jealousy - brilliant!!! very grungey.

Let me start by saying that not everyone is going to like this album. My friend who has seen the Phonics more than any other band doesn't like this album. If you're looking for a hard rocking, easy to listen to album, then this probably isn't the album for you, maybe try the Vines first album instead.
This is a very different album to Word gets Around, slower, more melancholy but with subtle touches that make it suberb. Almost every song builds up in some way, an extra instrument added in each verse, a slight change in tempo, or an extra tension in Kelly's voice.
Stand out tracks, for me at least, are Getaway, Jealousy, I'm Alright (Absolutely brilliant track, full of mood and emotion) and Since I told you its Over. The only downside to this album are the lyrics to some of the songs, they can make you cringe a little. "Sitting here playing with myself again/ It's turning me on" and "I'll make another pound for you/ so you can drive your motor car/ and drive you to the moon" and a few other examples. Not overwhelmingly bad, just not great to sing along to!
I bought this album when it came out, and whilst I haven't listened to it non stop, its certainly is one of the most played albums I own.

Firstly I have to say that this album is very different. The opening track 'Help Me (she's out of her mind)' is great, it's a good old phonics rock song and opens the album in style. There are 3 or 'typical' stereophonics songs on this album ('Help Me', 'Madame Helga' and 'High As The Cieling').
But most of this album is completely new ground, with songs like 'I Miss You Now' (a slow bluesy John Lee Hooker type song) and 'You Stole My Money Honey' (an Oasis type song, and one of the best on offer). But if you're a fan of the classic anthemic 'Traffic' then you'll love 'Nothing Precious At All', although this song is musically very different, lyrically it is very simelar, opening with the line 'I've been people watching again' I emediately picked up my ears. We hear Kelly describing the life of a young girl who has just started a new job, he describes her in great detail with the line 'She's got fine lines round her tired eyes, they're painted blue', this song doesn't dissapoint - it's perfect. Then theres the brass band in the beautiful song 'Climbing The Wall', This song has Kelly asking his questions again, 'what makes you and what makes me?' and 'what makes women lie throught the teeth?'.
There's a lot of anger in this album too, Jealousy is a guitar-led rock song and quite sad, but nothing compares to the rage and lump-in-the-throat of 'Rainbows And Pots Of Gold' where Kelly is singing about an old friend who upset him somehow, and possibly stole his girl 'How's my friend? When's she gonna be your wife?'. You can hear the emotion in his gravelly voice, and you can't help but feel sorry for him.
In conclusion, this album is excellent, it desserves 5 stars, not just for the great music and clever lyics, but also for the willingness and want by the Stereophonics to move on from the excellent but old fashioned 'Word Gets Around' songs.
