5.0 out of 5 stars Graffiti on the Train, 8 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Graffiti on the Train (Audio CD)
Quite simply their best album yet, how some critics can refer to this album as typical Stereophonics meat and potatoes pub rock is mind boggling. Every song is incredibly strong, but stand out moments are Violins and Tambourines, Graffiti on the Train, the superbly odd yet catchy zombie soundtrack esque In A Moment, all of which are amongst their best stuff and feature diversity by the bucket load. Catacombs is an opportunity for them to flex their guitar muscles, Take Me is beautiful, haunting and odd, and the end minute or so of Roll the Dice is superb, comparisons by reviewers to any Muse track with strings and rolling drums are completely lazy, it really isn't anything like Muse, but is brilliant despite this. The only track that I would give four stars is Caught Cheating, but only because I personally didn't much like You Gotta go There. Oh and Indian Summer is one of their best singles for a while, not sure why people are not liking it to be honest. Overall their most impressive album since Sex. Violence which is one of my all time favourite CDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Comeback!, 1 Jan. 2009
This review is from: On The Outside (Audio CD)
I understand why some people don't like this band- the vocals are fairly shrieky, but to me it proves that he can sing. Too many bands say the words, Kaiser Chiefs among them, but i think his voice is very good.

To start off is In The Crossfire. Like most of the songs on this album it leads to a rocking chorus, a wall of barelling sound. I would give this song 10/10.
Counterfeit Life again has a brilliant chorus- 9/10
In My Blood is more cheery than the previous two songs and is more "bubbly". Still a fairly good attempt though, would give it 8/10
Faith Hope Love is amazing from the start beat from the guitar, then mellows with the first verse, and then stomps back again with the chorus, which is amazing. Gets really good at around 1:50. Possibly too short though, however would give it 10/10.
I Don't Know starts off quiet and relaxed, then smashes into a great chorus with a chorus of backing "oooh"s. Brilliant. 9.5/10
Way Back Home starts off with a great beat, then loses momentum slightly as it leads into the verse, then regains its splendour in the chorus with a very cool sounding clashing guitar. 10/10
Keep Us Together doesn't start off too well and seems to race through the first verse as though it wants it to be over quickly. Having saying that, there is yet another spectacular chorus (This album is full of them). 9/10
Get Out While You Can is not as good as the other songs and plods along a bit, even in the chorus. However there will be those who see this song as a welcoming break from the baraages of sound before it. I would give it 7/10.
This Time starts off very promising, then fades slightly. But all is not lost! the chorus kickstarts after about a minute and reveals itself as yet another fantastic explosion of guitar and backing vocals,and really explodes at around 2:30 with a string of "when the beats run dry there's gonna be some blood", opening up a chorus of "ooooh"s again. 10/10.
White Light is calm and gives you the false impression it's going to stay like that for the entire song. However, the chorus is once again spectacular, as is the ending minute of the song. Yet another 10/10.
Jeremiah is the only song on this album that I hate, unlike the other songs it never seems to actually go anywhere. 5/10.

In conclusion many people will hate this album when they liked the previous two, but i like the previous two and find this one to be their best. Almost every song is like a rocket, the verses are the rocket streaming into the sky, gaining momentum, the explosion of sound that is the chorus is the explosion of the rocket, and the spectaclar endings and final choruses are the brilliant lights that expand from the explosion.
I love this album and it's rocking choruses, and I hope you do too.
