Remarkable albums from the past…
‘Word Gets Around’ by STEREOPHONICS
Released: 25 August 1997 / debut longplayer
DROWNED IN SOUND review: “In the late ’90s, a rash of Welsh rock bands emerged, among them Catatonia, Super Furry Animals, 60 Ft. Dolls, and the Stereophonics. On the surface, the Stereophonics’ gritty rock & roll seems relatively uninspired, but upon close listen Word Gets Around proves to be a very accomplished debut. Vocalist/guitarist Kelly Jones’ vocals are raw and rip the songs apart, as his loud, arena-ready guitar assault gives every track a gritty edge.”
Score: 3.5/5 – Full review here.
TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Tons of passion, guitars and briskness.
