  1. Mind you, Kelly Jones' voice is an acquired taste. If you warm to it, however, you'll then enjoy a wealth of simple country-tinged pop songs.
  2. The problems are compounded by the sheer awfulness of some of Jones’ lyrics.... What often redeems them is the music. On that front, Stereophonics have undoubtedly progressed...
  3. Considerably tamer than their stadium-rocking, chart-topping previous albums, Just Enough Education to Perform sounds less like a band voluntarily growing into their new-found maturity, and more like a pet's first, forced visit to the castration clinic.
  4. Songwriting low on insight, high on moaning.

    Good, but still the weakest of all the Stereophonics albums. When its good its very good (Vegas Two Times, Rooftop, Lying In The Sun) but a Good, but still the weakest of all the Stereophonics albums. When its good its very good (Vegas Two Times, Rooftop, Lying In The Sun) but a couple of poor tracks bring it down (Have A Nice Day, Everyday I Think Of Money). To get a true feel for this band, listen to Word Gets Around and Language Sex Violence Other instead Full Review »
