I don't agree, but it's your opinion. Hip hop is laughable bad from what I've seen. Kelly Jones has more then proven to be a good song writer over the years. In most of their songs there's always a little story in them, which can sometimes add more on repeative plays. To call them a rock band in the traditional sense is a bit silly though. They've had few songs over the years that are rock in the traditional sense.
Yes. Just yes.
No. Just no.
Everything the Stereophonics ever put out.
Bunch of talentless hacks, rock music for people who don't like rock music.
You want to see talentless? Go watch X factor or the simon cowell idea of music, or hear any "artist" that goes under the name of rap. Not many people can write, sing, perform and try and change styles as they do it. You may not like them, that's fine, but they are definatly not talentless.
Shit like the X Factor doesn't even come into it, it's a school talent show run by rich people.
The Stereophonics are a band that have made a name by peddling their own wares as artists and songwriters, thus presenting themselves as credible artists and inevitably inviting comparisons against a whole world's worth of creatives. And in that comparison, they are at the bottom of the heap. Shit songs, shit musicians.
My main genres are metal, rock and jazz. Stereophonics are a shit rock band, but I could name a list as long as my arm of good hip-hop artists. There's a pretty discernible difference between being outright shit and just not doing it for someone.
