前阵子的全英颁奖看到Blur很欣慰~哈哈,永远的Girls Boys~不由的想到这一票英伦团,这里必然得有Stereophonics~翻出这张重听,他们成立十周年时候出过的唯一张合辑,顺手补上Deluxe,DVD文件太大,把两张CD贴贴.这张取得双白金销量的合辑成绩卓然,在英国TOP 100专辑榜单上悠悠哉哉呆了94周.选曲有条不紊囊括了众多新旧经典,很好的带我们梳理了这支岛国旗帜乐队的发展历程.

This is a fantastic selection.
Stereophonics are the latest Brit band to bring out a greatest hits, but unlike Oasis and Radiohead, Decade In The Sun was the band's own decision to, in their own words, ''celebrate ten fantastic years''. In a recent interview, Kelly Jones said people are quick to be negative about ''some exec making a compilation on his laptop'', but that the new songs included here (and more of that later) show rather than dying quietly, Stereophonics are focused on new material.
So this is the story of how Cwmaman's Tragic Love Company became 2008's nine-million-selling global superstars - via being Branson's first ever signing to V2 records – and with just the one major line up change on the way. But with Cable or without him, this disc shows what most won't realise: just how many hits Stereophonics have had.
The best of six albums (five of those chart toppers) are here, starting with their only number one single Dakota and ending with the inevitable – the hit that isn't theirs, Handbags And Gladrags. All moods of the Welshmen are here, from the flippant, whiney classic Have A Nice Day to the more political A Thousand Trees with its incendiary line: ''It only takes one tree to make a thousand matches, it only takes one match to burn a thousand trees''.
There are two new tracks on the album, You're My Star and My Own Worst Enemy. The former is stylish and steady, more Superman than Just Looking.
The balance from across the ten years in the 19 tracks is good, though notable exceptions are two of their biggest hits, Madame Helga and Moviestar. You have to question the decision to overlook the pair in favour of their dirgey, lowest ever charting single, More Life In A Tramp's Vest. True, it was their debut, but it's the rare occasion when an exec's choice might have beaten the band's sentimentally-clouded judgement. Nitpicking aside though, this is a fantastic selection sure to thrill Stereophonics superfans and new recruits alike. Sophie Bruce 2008-11-07 bbc


被冠上「威尔斯王子」名号的主唱兼吉他手Kelly Jones、贝斯手Richard Jones两位携手闯盪至今的好伙伴,加上历经Stuart Cable、前Black Crowes鼓手Steve Goman担任巡迴演出鼓手一职,以及现在第三任阿根廷籍鼓手Javier Weyler等三人简单机制,把玩出最不简单的音乐触感。陆续发行『Word Gets Around』(1997)、『Performance And Cocktails』(1999)、『Just Enough Education To Perform』(2001)、『You Gotta Go There To Come Back』(2003)、『Language. Sex. Violence. Other?』(2005)、『Pull The Pin』(2007)等六张畅销专辑,其中五张皆夺下英国金榜冠军,然而『Just Enough Education To Perform』发行第39週后,反衝英国专辑金榜桂冠并蝉连三週榜首,创下英国流行音乐史上,同一张专辑发行后相隔近十个月再度夺冠的卓越成就。
Stereophonics汇集所有能量与迷醉人心的情歌特质,以首张完整精选特辑【Decade In The Sun: Best Of Stereophonics】,回顾这一路走来的辉煌足迹,为十週年画下完美惊嘆号,更期待下一个璀璨十年的到来
