[BRITPAP] Likely consigned to relative footnote status this side of the Atlantic—touring near the height of their powers 10 years back, the Welsh troupe couldn’t even sell out Berbati’s—Stereophonics strode forth that blighted age following the thaw of Cool Britannia as rockier, manful country cousins hawking a guitar-based counterpart to Coldplay’s middlebrow pretensions. Their crowds swelled to the low six-figures, they joined enviable company with five consecutive chart-topping LPs and their trademark anthemic inanities evidently stroked some ancestral yen for empty bombast among their countrymen that even our most committed Anglophiles fail to understand. Eighth album Graffiti on the Train slathers productive sheen atop another collection of dully rousing balladry oversold by frontman-songwriter Kelly Jones’ Rod Stewart-esque soaring rasp. One of two founding members remaining (alongside the bassist), Jones possesses a voice to shake the terraces, and a muse fit to brighten the commute.
