You Gotta Go There to Come Back (2003)

Details Release Date: Sep 09, 2003; Lead Performance: Stereophonics

The Stereophonics are stars in their native U.K., but that fame has yet to translate overseas. This CD is unlikely to change that. Kelly Jones' weatherbeaten rasp suits his band's guitar-heavy riff-rockery, and his occasionally catchy songs are besotted with American-style blues-derived stomp. But few Americans prize American-style blues-derived stomp these days.
