Album Notes
Stereophonics: Kelly Jones, Richard Jones, Stuart Cable.Additional personnel: Nadia Lannman (cello); Richard Payne (accordion); Marshall Bird (keyboards).The Welsh pop trio Stereophonics' 1998 debut is a fine, hook-filled Britpop platter. While the clear highlight is the UK hit "Local Boy in the Photograph," an insidiously catchy though lyrically elliptical tune, WORD GETS AROUND contains several tracks nearly as impressive, such as "Not Up to You," with an absurdly over-prominent electronic snare that eventually gets overtaken by Kelly Jones' big, crunchy, Cheap Trick-like guitar. "Check My Eyelids for Holes" and "Same Size Feet," which has one of the catchiest choruses on the album, are also excellent, but perhaps the most affecting track is "Too Many Sandwiches," a sharp but sweet examination of a small-town wedding reception. WORD GETS AROUND is an exceptional debut.
