There is no such thing as typos and this is exactly what it was supposed to say.
This is the highest rating any Stereophonics record has received from DiS. Spot on review.
I think that's fair. It's the organ.
But sadly the PR company only sent us the one disc version.
...I really don't see it as a criticism. The point of that phrase was to distinguish them from someone like Muse, who do something far more frilly. They ARE a 'meat and potatoes' rock band, satisfyingly so. There's nothing wrong with sounding a bit like the Foo Fighters.
To anyone spotting the nerdy reference to Robert Jordan's 'Wheel of Time' books here.
I gave myself a biscuit break when I wrote that.
Thanks for typo spots, we'll get that sorted. Regarding the other thing, it was a press conference/q&a/junket, not an interview, so unfortunately the questions were all vetted before hand. There was a 'free for all' at the end, but I didn't get to ask anything. There's quite a lot of stuff to ask about that didn't get covered. Soz.
Give it a bit of time. I can't see myself revisiting it that often, but it's completely...ok.
I meant 'Coral Blue'. Can't even read my own reviews properly.
...I'm not imagining that ‘Sadness Comes Home’ sounds like a prog-metal 'Enter Sandman' in the verses?

It's curious isn't it... In the case of 'Oh Love', maybe because it's a link to the last record, and in the case of 'Kill the DJ' possibly because it's the biggest leap forward, and potentially a radio hit. 'Nuclear Family' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHmSyGjf6BA&feature=plcp) and 'Let Yourself Go' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_8C3Z1W_HI&feature=relmfu) are MUCH more representative.
It's 'Dookie' meets the Fox Boro Hottubs album.
Totally disagree on the 'Way to Normal' leak tracks, I thought they were the best thing he'd done in ages, though I agree the actual album was largely disappointing. In fact, knowing that after finishing that album he went on to knock out tracks as good as those 'fakes' meant my faith in him didn't take the kicking it would have done, and I loved the Nick Hornby record... I remain cautiously optimistic.
Am I actually in the minority for marginally preferring CTB to EATT? Who knew.
I'm a fan of both- problem is this is neither. Sorry to be the barer of bad news- I really really wanted to like it because I think they could come out with something that taps all of the stuff they're best at and is still commercial- this isn't it though. If you'll excuse the Kermodeism, I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed.
