5/10 Tom Customer review, 25th May 2018
If Performance and Cocktails was a bit of a dud then this following factoid should tell you everything you need to know about their third album Just Enough Education to Perform: Wayne Rooney has the album's name tattooed on his arm.
Listen, Rooney isn't paid insane amounts of money to give out music recommendations or to scour the earth looking for them - he just needs to smack that fucking ball into the back of the net. However, it is slightly hilarious that this is apparently Rooney's favourite album.
This is the album that spawned the inane "Have a Nice Day" and the mawkish "Step on My Old Size Nines" (small feet there, Mr. Jones...) and while it promised to rawk and give the finger to the critics ("Mr. Writer) it was a damp squib that permanently derailed the Stereophonics from the promising path of their debut album.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 8th December 2016
This has fewer rock songs than you would expect from a rocking group like the Stereophonics. If you want songs like 'A Thousand Trees' or 'The Bartender and The Thief', you already have the first two discs for that. Kelly Jones doesn't do his usual amount of screeching and screaming but he still turns on the gravely rasp on the fine opener 'Vegas Two Times.' The slow to mid-paced songs here have a carefree lilt, as though the band is finally managing a little smile. The Stereophonics still know how to make an interesting, pithy tale out of a rock song.
