Album Review

One of those British phenomena that has stayed distinctly provincial — talk all you want about Oasis or Blur never cracking the U.S. charts, Stereophonics never came close, never even managing to cobble together a cult of college students or Anglophiles — Stereophonics managed to carve out a nice living as workaday rockers in the post-Oasis age. They were guitar rock traditionalists in the time when Radiohead and their happy followers Coldplay ruled British rock, marching just outside of the Zeitgeist but appealing to thousands anyway, probably because they never tried to compete with Radiohead's spacy explorations. Instead, Stereophonics adapted the anthemic roar of their Welsh forefathers Manic Street Preachers, substituting the Manics' Guns N' Roses fascination with a love of Nirvana, and then made big arena rock, tempered slightly with rambling acoustic singalongs straight out of Oasis and vague electronica-flavored pop. All this is chronicled on Decade in the Sun: The Best of Stereophonics, the group's first hits compilation and one that traces its evolution effectively across 20 tracks best appreciated by listeners familiar with these tunes as part of the general cultural fabric. For U.K. listeners, this is a good sampling of what they heard in the background for a decade.

Best Band Ever

The Stereophonics are the best band + the best live act ever. I saw them open up for the Charlatans at the Comadore in Vancouver many years ago and have been hoooked ever since. This album is a great educational listen to those who don't know the band! + check them out if they land in your city..... cheers!

Nothing compares

My fiancé and I are getting married next summer and want to have our first dance to Stereophonics version of Nothing Compares but can only find it on YouTube. Would love to see them release this on iTunes for our playlist!!! Because nothing compares to their version!

A bright new noise in U.K. alternative rock in the '90s and into the new millennium, Stereophonics were comprised of vocalist/guitarist Kelly Jones, bassist Richard Jones, guitarist Adam Zindani, and drummer Jamie Morrison. They were formed in Cwmaman, South Wales, originally as the teenage cover band Tragic Love Company and with the late Stuart Cable on drums. Early reviews cited the Manic Street Preachers as their most obvious influence, and their initial batch of singles struggled to disabuse...
