    This band needs to pull the pin--- and jump on the grenade.

    I was really excited for this album after Language Sex Violence Other, which ranks right up there with Word Gets Around in my book. This was entirely disappointing.

    Positively the most turgid, plodding and pointless band ever.

  1. Wham, bam, rock and glam, it's Marshall stacks turned up to 11 and Kelly riffing away in the steps of a heap of bands who do it better.
  2. Pull the Pin possesses nothing more than stale and horribly bland rock that will most likely leave even die-hard fans disappointed.
  3. Pull The Pin has urgency, a sense of menace and though it deals with issues like war ('Soldiers Make Good Targets') and the London bombings, there's little of the sanctimonious rhetoric Stereophonics of old were guilty of spouting.
