Album Review

Stereophonics team up with Jim Abbiss for 2009’s Keep Calm and Carry On, hoping the producer of Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and the Music can freshen them up a little bit. Abbiss does strip away the gloss of Pull the Pin, guiding Stereophonics toward something a little more straightforward, where their Oasis obsessions are upgraded to a declawed Monkeys, the U2 swapped for Coldplay. The relatively stripped-down setting winds up letting the rockers of the album’s first half latch in, particularly the rather propulsive “Trouble,” the nimble “She’s Alright,” and rolling “I Got Your Number,” and does keep the succession of anthems and ballads on the second half from seeming too languid., Rovi

[Insert superlatives here]

One thing you can say about Stereophonics with no hesitation is that no two of their albums sound alike, and Keep Calm and Carry On certainly lives up to that. The album kicks in with some excellent punk rock and classic brit pop in the form of She's Alright and lead single Innocent. Beerbottle is very experimental with sounds which could have been inspired by The Clash but it is definitely a grower. Even the relatively lyrically poor Trouble can be forgiven as it's bouncy, classic rock will have you jumping up and down. Could You Be The One? then showcases Kelly Jones' beautiful voice at it's best. Then, just as you would expect most albums to fade away, Keep Carry and Carry On gets even better in sublime fashion. Standout songs include Live 'n' Love and 100mph which are both lyrically and musically among the best the Stereophonics have ever produced. Stuck in a Rut and Show Me How end the album in spectacularly, haunting fashion. Show Me How inparticular showcases a vulnerable songwriter at his very best. A must buy album which is probably the Stereophonics best work this decade.

Stereophonics at their best

First listen this morning.......great album.

Not a duff tune in sight. Absolutely their best yet

I'm a big phonics fan. And to be honest struggled with the "Pull the pin" and "you had to go there.." albums because there were some dark gloomy tunes in both these. (some nice upbeat ones too which makes it worth it) but even so, "Keep Calm" has all the variety of a great box of roses chocolates. I am so impressed with every song in this collection. Some sad melodic tunes, and some right good old belters to turn up in your car and embarrass yourself singing along to. I guarantee you will hear at least one tune on this that will stay in your i-pod for years and years to come. I on the other hand will not be deleting one of them. Look out for 'Could you be the one'. Just heavenly.

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...
