GRAFFITI ON THE TRAIN
Stereophonics
 (Warner)

The Welsh rockers' 2007 greatest hits album was called A Decade in the Sun and summed up their outdoor festival, beer garden crowd-pleasing, downright sexy style.

But the 2010 death of original drummer Stuart Cable has clearly hit Kelly Jones and the crew hard because although We All Share the Same Sun, it's obviously not from the same picnic rug.

Cinematic strings back tales of loss and death for their eighth full-lengther in which life is tough and cheap. It's not a fun listen, but it is a more mature listen and perhaps heralds the Stereophonics' arrival as a classic band.
