Album Review

Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones roars "Cuz all I wanna do/Is make a mess outta you" on "Doorman," one of many white-hot blowouts from the band's fifth album, Language. Sex. Violence. Other? The album title borrows from the classification code used on the backs of DVDs, and its blunt display instantly pulls listeners toward Stereophonics' nonchalant chutzpah. Jones and bassist Richard Jones have never sounded more brash. The punk-inspired spark that made their 1997 debut, Word Gets Around, so impressive is rekindled. This 11-song set, which features quick and curt one-word song titles, is matched with sex appeal and an unshakable confidence. Argentinean-born Javier Weyler, who replaced founding drummer Stuart Cable in 2004, is a great fit with Stereophonics' wicked yet sensitive personality. Songs such as the smoldering bass funk of "Brother," the crunchy drop-kick of "Girl," and the glossy guitar hooks of "Dakota" find Stereophonics' second coming to be a convincing one. Jones' signature vocal grit saunters around the bravado of "Superman" and slow wax of "Pedalpusher" particularly well. This is the studio record they've been dying to make. While their previous four albums all showcased great moments, Stereophonics never fully realized their full-throttled power until Language. Sex. Violence. Other? Previous singles like "Madame Helga" and "The Bartender and the Thief" were mere glimpses into what this Welsh rock threesome could do if they just built upon their thick, merciless riffs and Jones' rough-edged vocals. Language. Sex. Violence. Other? is such an intense studio record. Stereophonics could not have nailed it any better.

Customer Reviews

Unbelievable rock record----The Stereophonics at their best!

The Stereophonics are one of the best and most under-rated rock acts of the last 10 years! This album sees a change in the line-up for the first time as amazingly entertaining drummer, Stuart Cable exited the roster. Javier Weyler came aboard and stepped up to the task big time, This record is absolutely amazing from start to finish. 2001's "J.E.E.P" and 2003's "You Gotta Go There To Come Back" are awesome records seeing the Stereophonics mature in songwriting and technique, delivering impressive varieties of songs, proving they could tackle just about any style. Their crowning rock achievement of 1999's "Performance and Cocktails" however, was so intense, raw and pure rock and roll, that it left fans craving more.....The raw gritty rock flavor returned with a vengeance...... "Language.Sex.Violence.Other...?" is the Stereophonics at their strongest. Lead off track "Superman" is such a different feel for the Phonics' and it couldn't work better....So cool. The album came out in 2005 and would be just as important and relevant if it came out yesterday. Timeless is the word I was looking for! Intense, well crafted, gritty, loud and well written. Plain and simple. No current rock act can touch these guys!!!!

"feel" the love
