    This seventh studio album doesn't find them doing anything much different but still doing it with grit and conviction. [Dec 2009, p. 113]
  2. Like 2003's electronic-based Dakota, their seventh album works when it breaks the mould.
  3. I Got Your Number is a sexy, snarling glam rocker, Wonder recalls Smashing Pumpkins at their sunniest and Stuck In A Rut has the strut of prime-time Black Crowes. [Dec 2009, p. 110]
  4. Stereophonics deserve doughty, workmanlike praise: they're a safe pair of hands, and this record does exactly what it promises. There are worse crimes.

    Keep Calm...is a perfectly good album, but it strives for nothing more. [Dec 2009, p. 90]
  6. This isn’t a particularly awful record--it’s simply a album full of typical sounding Stereophonics songs
  7. In the end, Keep Calm And Carry On is a forgettable, throwaway stopgap, a dog-eared blast of mediocrity in the career of a mainstay band.
