Keep Calm & Carry on by Stereophonics
excellent new cd by this band, good alternative rock. they've become one of favorite bands in a very short time. good rockin guitars, good drumming. vocals are still excellent, i have a few of their albums, their changing the style on albums as they mature. these guys need more support, remind me of u2/coldplay. check these boys out.

While this album didn't grab me straight away, I have really grown to like this album a lot because there is a lot to like all across this disc. With any Stereophonics album, there is always a little something for every mood which creates a really great balance from front to back. They know how to write a pop hook as well as anyone out of the U.K. and the evidence is all over tracks like Innocent & Could You be the One?
However, one of their greatest strengths lay in their ability to sell gritty, raunchy and edgy without sounding contrived and lame. Beerbottle, Stuck in a Rut & I Got Your Number are fantastic examples of this and all are personal favourites. Other highlights include 100mph, Uppercut & Live N Love...this album really is full of great tunes that get in your head and eventually find a home there.
I don't like making comparisons to other bands, i would much rather direct you to Youtube to listen to samples and draw your own conclusions. If Stereophonics isn't on your radar yet, by all means check them out! You probably won't be disappointed...

Every stereophonics album is different and this another one of those good albums from the stereophonics. Lot's off brilliant songs on this like innocent, 100 mph, could you be the one, live 'n' love and beerbottle are brilliant. The album is a combination of brilliant accoustic style songs and brilliant rock songs. You won't be disappointed with this album.
