oasis/stereophonics

anyone else see the similarities?

both have a classic first album followed up by an ok second, followed by a number of below average albums where they are trying to recapture something they had years ago.

both supported u2

both sacked their drummer

both reached mainstream success at the second single from their second albums (just looking and wonderwall)

both have bushy eyed lead singers.

Well, personally I find "Definitely Maybe" grossly overrated and enjoy "Heaven Chemistry" quite a lot.

Another similarity could be, both received a gushing 5-star review from Q magazine for the least deserving albums.

Oasis had a stone-cold classic second album....














....The Stereophonics did not and are one of the worst bands of all time.

Lame question: What do the Stereophonics sound like? Or, more accurately, who do they sound like?

which bears odd similarities to:

tsunami by the manics
turkish song of the damned by the pogues
another bag of bricks by flogging molly

it's a similar progression...besides Noel was noodling around with it for years

both are excellent songs though

I don't think the Stereophonics sounds like anyone else. You should definitely check out some of their stuff, martha. Let me know if you'd like some song recommendations.

Can I have a few recommendations...I've only heard of them. I always wondered what they sounded like.

Okay, let's see...

I'm mostly familiar with their recent popular stuff, but that's good for starting out, I suppose. I'm sure a hardcore, longtime fan will come along and tell you some totally different songs, but oh well!

You might try:

Handbags and Gladrags
Maybe Tomorrow
I'm Alright (You Gotta Go There to Come Back)
Have a Nice Day
Madame Helga

I just recently got into them, and I like everything of theirs so far, but I'm still working on getting to know their music through and through. Apparently their older stuff is more rocking. Hope that helps!

If you like bland, generic radio-rock then you will love The Stereophonics...
