So many times in the world of Rock and roll, there is the problem of a great group that plays well together, but has way too many conflicts behind the scenes. It happened to The Beatles and it happened to Oasis. I purchased "Stop The Clocks" so I could complete a Rolling Stone survey of something or another-I think it was the hot guitar survey-and I found myself immersed in this album, not necessarily wanting any others, but wanting to see what made this group so good for the late 80's and the 90's. I did a bit of looking through other material and found the group came close to cashing it in on several other occasions and thus I make the comparison to the Fab Four. The musicality is great, but something or another just didn't quite click for the group behind the scene and they fought from everything from solos to lead singer. Seems to me, if you know what you do best, then you should not try to take over all spots.
Anyway, every track on this disc is highly listenable. Many have great beats so you can dance, but I finds thew most compelling reason is that the band was original in everything they did. Good songwriting makes it all happen and these songs are indeed all written well. My suggestion is just pick up a copy for the nineties collection of your CD rack and see if you think the same. Some good Brit rock is always nice to have. Hopefully you'll get more turned on.
