Love the phonics and everything about them. But boys this is not a good moment in your career.
Listened to this album over & over but finally decided it’s not going to improve.
3 tracks are good but the rest are just plain and non descriptive.
Shape up lads, have a year off and reboot please
Don’t let the devil take away another day!!
I can’t stop listening their latest single from this great album. I hope they will play this song live when I see them in March 2020 at the O2. The album is more mellower than the previous ones but still enjoyably catchy. The band always deliver the goods for us to listen!
Keep it going boys!
Not my favourite

Very mundane album

Love this album can’t stop listening to it
Not their best work.
Listen to the album around a dozen times, and probably won’t go back to it anytime soon. 3, maybe 4 tracks are okay, the rest sound like fillers. Even the deluxe editions extra tracks are demos of the same material. Hope their next release will be of the creative excellence we have become used to.

Sterophonics are maturing nicely with age. The story telling and music are brilliant. Looking forward to seeing them live.
Very disappointing album and by far their worst in their repertoire of great albums. I am all for stripped back & at times a country slant but lyrically it is poor, songs lack any real punch and just seems like most of the songs would fit on b sides of their previous offerings. Huge fan since the start & lives every album even Kelly’s solo effort but first time I’ve skipped songs and even switched off partly through listening. Weak album
They lost the plot
What an awful album
Shallow, Lazy Song Writiing
Having followed Stereophonics since the early days, this album reaches a new low point in their portfolio. There are a number of tracks that are 'okay' in a simplistic background track sort of way, but almost every song consists of a couple of short and extremely basic musical phrases that are repeated time and time again. It sounds niaive, uninspired and lazy having come from somone as experienced as Kelly. The last couple of tracks are exceptionally poor. As a whole, as Morrisey once said, "it says nothing to me about my life" and as such I can't connect with this at all. Kelly should spend some time listening to Elbow's new album to remind himself about creativity and the beauty of meaningful, passionate song writing.
