For their sizable fanbase, Stereophonics will be for ever be synonymous with good times, Chris Evans's TV show and hands punching the air. For their detractors, they remain purveyors of meat-and-potatoes musical gruel. It may be too late to change many minds now, but the 2010 death of their former drummer Stuart Cable has brought about a metamorphosis. Although their eighth album isn't necessarily about him, his presence hangs heavy over it. Singer Kelly Jones delivers dark, melancholy songs of sadness and contemplation, the title track and Violins and Tambourines pondering the transience of life over touchingly simple guitar motifs.
