Biography

Kelly Jones has been in this London pub before. But that’s probably not surprising seeing that Jones, and his band Stereophonics, have been nearly everywhere before.

In the past 15 years they’ve toured virtually all over the world, chalking up five UK Number One albums along the way. They’ve headlined Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium and hung out with rock’s ... Read more in Amazon's Stereophonics Store

Stereophonics have been churning out albums (and singles) pretty much like clockwork since their 1997 debut album: every 2 years fans get a new album, and after 6 studio albums (and one live album), the band finally gets the greatest hits treatment.

"Decade In the Sun: Best of Stereophonics" (20 tracks; 79 min.) brings the greatest hits of the band, and rightfully, this compilation focuses on the first 3 studio albums. The very promising 1997 debut "Word Gets Around" has 4 tracks on here (Local Boy in a Photograph; Thousand Trees; Traffic; More Life in a Tramps Vest). The band's best album ever, 1999's "Performance & Cocktails" also gets 4 tracks (Bartender and the Thief; Just Looking; Pick a Part that's New; I Wouldn't Believe Your Radio). And 2001's "Just Enough Education to Perform" also gets 4 tracks (Have a Nice Day; Mr. Writer; Step On My Old Size Nines; Vegas Two Times), plus this includes the non-album single from the same sessions, the Rod Stewart-cover "Handbags and Gladrags". The rest of is filled out by singles from the last 3 albums, with the 2005 "Language" album getting 3 tracks (including "Dakota", the band's biggest UK charting single ever). 2003's "You Gotta Go There To Come Back" is represented by "Maybe Tomorrow", and 2007's "Pull the Pin" features "It Means Nothing". There are also 2 new tracks, the so-so "My Own Worst Enemy" and the much better "You're My Star".

In all, this is a very generous serving of Stereophonics' greatest hits (and they've had plenty of hits in the UK). I don't like the sequencing of the tracks, to be honest. There is no rhyme or reason to it. A chronological sequencing would have served the listening experience better. While the band's output after "J.E.E.P.

Stereophonics have been churning out albums (and singles) pretty much like clockwork since their 1997 debut album: every 2 years fans get a new album, and after 6 studio albums (and one live album), the band finally gets the "greatest hits" treatment.

This is the deluxe version of "Decade In the Sun: Best of Stereophonics" (2CDs; 40 tracks; 158 min.). CD1 (20 tracks; 79 min.) brings the proper greatest hits of the band, and rightfully, this compilation focuses on the first 3 studio albums. The very promising 1997' debut "Word Gets Around" has 4 tracks on here (Local Boy in a Photograph; Thousand Trees; Traffic; More Life in a Tramps Vest). The band's best album ever, 1999's "Performance & Cocktails" also gets 4 tracks (Bartender and the Thief; Just Looking; Pick a Part that's New; I Wouldn't Belief Your Radio).

There are also 2 new tracks, the so-so "My My Own Worst Enemy" and the much better "You're My Star".

CD2 (20 tracks; 79 min.) brings a much greater hotch-potch, which I suppose is geared towards the more rabbit Stereophonics fan. "2003's so-so "You Gotta Go There To Come Back" gets a generous 4 tracks (it only got 1 track on CD1). 2007's "Pull the Pin", which also got only 1 track on CD1, gets 3 more (including the excellent Bank Holiday Monday). Rightly, the first 2 albums each get another 3 tracks.

Loved the whole cd, but I bought it for only one song. I listened to it the whole way through and then the second time listening to it, it felt familiar. The songs are really catchy and I fell in love with them right away.

While I am a fan of Stereophonics and was glad to see the band finally get a greatest hits CD, I have to question half of the songs that made it to the list. Being not really known much here in America, I would have to assume most of these were probably chosen by the amount of airtime they received overseas. But come on, really? I have to certainly disagree with several of the choices made here. What happened to gems like "Hurry up and wait", "Rewind", "Lolita", "Nothing precious at all", "Getaway", "Pass the Buck" or "Lying in the Sun"? Songs like these really show the complexity of the band, and their craftiness for being able to create very catchy & intriguing melodies. While I realize that everyone has their own idea as to what should have been considered a 'hit', I just don't think this compilation is a very good representation of what this band is completely capable of. "Vegas two times" also has to be one of the most horrendous songs I have ever heard before and should never have made the label of being a 'greatest hit' (or maybe I just missed something). But, alas, this is simply my opinion, and I am still very much looking forward to their forthcoming 2009 release.

I heard and saw Dakota live on the Jools Holland Show - Later and bought this CD. The CD is more "pop" and not really what I like. It's not their fault and I enjoyed the CD.
