    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

    This album has a nice positive atmosphere. I love the songs, even the lyrics (they are quite funny). Don't know the former two albums though.

    not comparable with the first two albums. boring, too long songs repeating the same lyrics. they should sound more like rocknroll like in their beginning

    It's unfair to criticise this album as I don't think they could ever reach the dizzy heights of Word Gets Around again but at some points it seems like they've had to struggle to think of some new tunes. Having said that Vegas Two Times and Rooftop rank among their best ever efforts.

    It's the 'Phonics showing rock in a whole new way!

  1. With the exception of the swaggering "Vegas Two Times," Just Enough may not pack the same wallop as Cocktails, but tunes like "Lying In The Sun" and the soaring "Watch Them Fly Sundays" instantly stand out as some of the band's best to date.

    This is a record that delights in the contrast of the group's no-frills rock past and its radio-friendly, mid-tempo future.
  3. Songwriting low on insight, high on moaning.
