Only The Names Have Been Changed
Only the Names Have Been Changed is the solo debut album by Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones.
As Jones explains, "we were recording the sixth Stereophonics album...and in-between takes I started doing these songs off the cuff. Three or four tracks in I realised that this could actually be something…strange how it's always little things that makes big things happen. We didn't wait - it was recorded January 7 and 8 and mastered by Friday the 12th...every song is a live take...we actively decided to make it a bit more filmic. In two days we put down 10 tracks with 10 different girls names…we wanted to do something in the vein of Nick Cave's Murder Ballads or Johnny Cash's Blood, Sweat and Tears.
Keep Calm and Carry On
Keep Calm and Carry On is the seventh studio album by Welsh rock band Stereophonics. Released by Mercury on 16 November 2009, the album debuted at number 11 with sales of 42,771 on the UK Albums Chart, the lowest position for a studio album released by the band. The album was named after a British World War II poster of the same name. Keep Calm and Carry On was the first studio album by the band to feature guitarist Adam Zindani as a permanent member of the band. In the initial months after release, fans could access bonus content from the band's website with their copy of the album. This featured videos of a Track By Track rundown of the album, a Welcome Message from the group, the photoshoot for the album, and live audio of "You're My Star" and "I Stopped to Fill My Car Up" from the Greatest Hits tour.
Mother is the only album of British band Kubb. It was released on 14 November 2005 in the UK on the Mercury Records label. It reached a peak of 26 the week of 13 February 2006. The album was never released in the US, although some versions have surfaced stateside.
12 Memories is the fourth studio album from Scottish alternative rock band Travis. The album was released on 11 October 2003 on Epic Records. In comparison, the album is a much more mature and lyrically darker album, focusing on issues such as the 2003 Iraq invasion, politicians, psychological crisis and domestic abuse.
Wreckorder is the debut solo album from Travis frontman, Fran Healy. The album was released on 4 October 2010, on Healy's private label, WreckordLabel. The album was recorded in late 2009 in Berlin and New York City, before being completed in Vermont in early 2010. It was produced by Emery Dobyns, with contributions from Paul McCartney, Neko Case and Noah and the Whale's Tom Hobden. The album is available in standard and deluxe editions, and debuted at number 76 on the UK Albums Chart.
Time is Nigh
This New Day
This New Day is the fifth studio album by English rock band Embrace. It was released on 27 March 2006, being preceded by the release of the single, "Nature's Law", and went straight to number one on the UK Albums Chart. The single and album were enough to earn the band the distinction of performing "World at Your Feet", England's official 2006 FIFA World Cup song. The album was then reissued on 5 June 2006, with the song included on it. The album is also notable for being the first album ever to top the UK Album Downloads Chart.
"Nature's Law" had become the band's most successful single, having debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart. Their second single was "World at Your Feet". The third single from the album was "Target" released on 11 September 2006, and charted at No. 29 after being number 9 in the midweek charts. It left the charts after only one week in the top 75. The fourth single "I Can't Come Down" was released on 4 December 2006 and reached No. 54.
Notably, "Exploding Machines" was originally planned to be the title of the album.
Kingdom Of Rust
Kingdom of Rust is the fourth studio album from British indie rock band Doves. The album was released on 6 April 2009 in the UK via Heavenly Records. A CD/DVD release of Kingdom of Rust, originally announced when promotion started for the album, was pulled by the label three weeks prior to the album's release. The album follows a four-year gap between their last album Some Cities in 2005. Kingdom of Rust was met with generally positive critical acclaim, and entered the UK Albums Chart at number 2.
Dark On Fire
Dark On Fire is the fourth studio album by the British band Turin Brakes. The band spent 2006 writing and recording demo songs. These songs were tested live on a UK tour in November 2006. After this, Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian teamed up with their live band and producer Ethan Johns to put the album together. The album was recorded in two different studios in London in early 2007. The band took a break from recording sessions late January because Gale's wife was expecting a baby, but in March 2007 the band finished the recording sessions.
The album was released on 17 September 2007 and entered the UK chart at #36. Special edition copies come with the 5-track bonus EP "Something Out Of Nothing."
The album was released to mostly generally favorable reviews although some reviewers found the new highly produced full-band sound to be disappointing. Others hailed the album as a return to the quality of 2001's The Optimist LP. Though the album sounds more glossy than previous efforts, it is in fact a mostly live recorded effort. This is significantly different from the previous albums. The band credit Ethan Johns with the idea for this approach.
Slipway Fires is the third album by English indie rock band Razorlight. The album was released on 3 November 2008.
The first single from the album, Wire to Wire, was released on 26 September 2008. It was premiered by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 on 8 September 2008, and peaked at number 5 in the UK Singles Chart.
The second single taken from the album was Hostage of Love released on 12 January 2009.
Wilderness Is Paradise Now
Wilderness Is Paradise Now was the debut and only album by Reading based English rock band Morning Runner. Preceded by the release of single "Burning Benches", the album was released on 6 March 2006, and, despite failing to make a significant impact commercially, it gained generally favourable reviews.
The Back Room
The Back Room is the debut studio album by British post-punk revival band Editors, released on 25 July 2005. It entered the UK Albums Chart at number 13 in July 2005, before peaking at number 2 in January 2006. It was produced by Jim Abbiss, and was released by Kitchenware in the United Kingdom, PIAS Recordings in Europe, and Fader Label in the United States.
The album was nominated for the 2006 Mercury Prize.
Thirst for Romance
Thirst for Romance is the debut album by Cherry Ghost, released on 9 July 2007 in the UK. The album is available on CD, digital download, and double vinyl LP. It was recorded at Ape Studios in Cheshire and Moolah Rouge Studios in Stockport. The first single, "Mathematics," was released on 9 April 2007; the second single "People Help the People" was released on 25 June 2007, just two weeks ahead of the album's release date; and the third single was "4 AM," released on 24 September 2007. "Roses" was an iTunes "single of the week" for the week that the album was released. Thirst for Romance was co-produced by Simon Aldred and Dan Austin. Thirst for Romance entered the UK Albums Chart at #7 upon its first week.
Jimi Goodwin of the band Doves plays drums on "People Help the People" and "Mathematics." In December 2005, when Jimi was acting as a guest host on a BBC Radio 1 show, he featured the then-up-and-coming Cherry Ghost. Simon performed two tracks live and acoustic in the studio: "Dead Man's Suit" and "People Help the People."
Persistence of Memory
Manic Street Preachers
Lifeblood is the seventh studio album by Welsh alternative rock band Manic Street Preachers. Recorded in 2003, it was released on 1 November 2004 by record label Sony Music UK.
The album was met with generally positive reviews from critics, yielding two singles, "The Love of Richard Nixon" and "Empty Souls". The album peaked at number 13 in the UK Album Chart.
Roots and Echoes
Roots & Echoes is the fourth full-length studio album by English indie rock band The Coral. It was released on 6 August 2007, and debuted in the UK Albums Chart at No. 8, the lowest entry in that chart for the band. It subsequently dropped out of the top 20 in its second week and had fallen out of the top 50 by its third week in the chart. The band did not subsequently tour for the album very much, appearing at Glastonbury and supporting the Arctic Monkeys on a few dates around Ireland and the UK.
Unlike the band's first four albums, Roots & Echoes has yet to be released in the United States, only available there as an import or via digital download.

You Cross My Path
You Cross My Path is the tenth album by British alternative rock band The Charlatans, released on 3 March 2008 as a free download from the XFM website. The album was then released, in the form of CD and 12" vinyl on 12 May 2008. The album's cover art is drawn by Faris Badwan of The Horrors.
The Imperfect Ten
Later...When The TV Turns To Static
Later...When the TV Turns to Static is the third studio album by Scottish rock band Glasvegas. It was released on 2 September 2013 through BMG. The album was produced by lead singer James Allan. It received generally favourable reviews from critics but stalled at number 41 on the UK Albums Charts. A cascading failure, it is the first of the group's studio albums not to reach the Top 10.
Later...When the TV Turns to Static was released in three formats: standard CD, heavyweight white-coloured vinyl LP, and deluxe almanac edition containing the CD, extensive booklet, and a bonus DVD featuring a full-length 'stripped' version of the album and exclusive live performances. Part of the footage contained within the deluxe almanac DVD is still broadcast by Sky Arts.
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds (Deluxe Edition)
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Noel Gallagher bounces back with a solo album that sweeps away the excesses of his old band Oasis without straying too far from his trademarked melodic rock gifts. Gallagher’s limited vocal range possesses hangdog warmth and songs such as “If I Had A Gun…” hew closer to prime early-‘90s Oasis than later career bloat. Gallagher also branches out with arrangements that are flecked with rootsy Americana, British psychedelia and baroque orchestral surges. A brass band enlivens “The Death of You and Me” (which quotes both Paul Weller and The Lovin’ Spoonful), while “Stop the Clocks” starts as a power ballad before slowly going off the rails into free jazz craziness.
Falling Down - EP
Drop Down To Earth
My Way is the sixth solo album by British artist Ian Brown. The album was released on 28 September 2009. The album's lead single "Stellify" was released on 21 September 2009. In an interview with XFM Manchester he claimed that the song was originally written for Rihanna, but he realised he had created "a great sound" so claimed the track for himself.
The second single "Just Like You" was released on 30 November 2009. This was Brown's final album for a decade, until his comeback with his 2019 album, Ripples.
The National Health
The National Health is the fourth studio album by English indie rock band Maxïmo Park. It was released in the United Kingdom on 11 June 2012 by V2 Records. The album was the first by the band to feature a title track. The one-minute opening track, a ballad with piano and strings, has been noted by the band as a deliberate move to disorientate the listener.
Live At Brixton Academy
Live from Brixton Academy is a live recording from the band Kasabian, available only from some digital download services. It was recorded at Brixton Academy on 15 December 2004. This was the band’s final show of their momentous breakthrough year, and band member Sergio Pizzorno’s 24th birthday.
Cast Of Thousands
Cast of Thousands is the second studio album by English rock band Elbow, released on 18 August 2003 in the UK and on 27 January 2004 in the US by V2 Records. The album title refers to the song "Grace Under Pressure", whose refrain was recorded live at the Glastonbury Festival in 2002, as sung by the audience during the band's set. Participants were then invited to register their names at the Elbow website, with all responders gaining a 'credit' on the album sleeve. The US version of the album contains two additional songs: "Whisper Grass" and "Lay Down Your Cross". The Japanese version includes "Whisper Grass" and "Brave New Shave" as bonus tracks.
A companion film was also produced in conjunction with the album's release. It features footage set to all 11 tracks on the UK version of the album, as well as the music videos for the singles "Fallen Angel" and "Fugitive Motel". In the UK the film was released on DVD, whereas in the US it was released as an enhanced video bonus disc with the album.
Through The Windowpane
Through the Windowpane is the debut full-length album from the British indie rock band Guillemots. It was released on 10 July 2006 in the United Kingdom and reached number 17 in the UK Album Chart. The album was highly anticipated following the strength of the singles "Trains to Brazil" and "Made-Up Lovesong #43". It was nominated for the 2006 Mercury Music Prize. The band released the final single from the album, a re-recording of "Annie, Let's Not Wait", on 15 January 2007.
Faded Seaside Glamour
Faded Seaside Glamour is the debut album by the English electronic rock group Delays, released on 5 April 2004. The album peaked at number 17 in the U.K. chart. It features top 40 singles "Nearer Than Heaven", " Long Time Coming" and " Hey Girl". The album was produced by Graham Sutton from Bark Psychosis.
North Atlantic Drift
Ocean Colour Scene
North Atlantic Drift is the sixth album by Ocean Colour Scene.
The title track is political commentary on American cultural imperialism and its support by the UK government, particularly the then impending US-led invasion of Iraq, which was opposed by the majority of the British public. "Meanwhile Rome burns" appears to be a reference to the September 11 Attacks, analogy with the Sacking of Rome, "Between the Euphrates and the other river now the home of the Devil and the liar" is a reference to Iraq and US President George W. Bush and British prime minister Tony Blair, respectively.
The first track, I Just Need Myself was played by Virgin Radio and reached #13 in the charts, though the other two singles did less well but still charted inside the top 40. The folky Second Hand Car was released as a single in Germany and Holland. She's Been Writing is dedicated to Sandy Denny, one of Fowler's favourite bands being Fairport Convention
The U.S. version was released on 19 August 2003, and contained four bonus tracks, all of which were b-sides to the U.K. single releases of "I Just Need Myself."
The album was released to a largely mixed-to-negative reception.
Different Gear, Still Speeding
Different Gear, Still Speeding is the debut studio album by English rock band Beady Eye, released on 28 February 2011. It debuted at number three in the UK Albums Chart selling 66,817 in the first week. As of August 2012, the album has sold 174,487 copies in the UK. On Different Gear, Still Speeding, all members contributed to the instrumentation, much like the later albums of Oasis.
Hey Ma is the tenth studio album by British alternative rock band James. It was released on 7 April 2008. Receiving positive reviews from critics, the album peaked at No. 10 in the UK Albums Chart and charted for 5 weeks.
Stars And The Sea
Boy Kill Boy
Stars and the Sea is the second album by Boy Kill Boy. It was released on March 31, 2008. It was recorded in three recording studios in Cornwall, Brighton, and Los Angeles. The track, "Loud and Clear", was made available for a free download from the band's website.
Much deliberation was made over the name of the album. In the December 2007 edition of Uncut, the magazine claimed that it would be a self-titled album, also HMV had the title listed as Loud and Clear, although MTV2UK and Amazon had both named it Stars and the Sea. It was finally announced in early November 2007 that it would be called this.
It charted at number 98 on April 6, 2008. The relatively poor sales of the record and subsequent label issues have been claimed to be behind the split of the band later in 2008.
Funny Looking Angels
Smith & Burrows
Silent Cry is the sixth full studio album by rock band Feeder. It was released by Echo, on 16 June 2008, on CD, deluxe CD, vinyl, and digital download. It was the follow-up to 2005's Pushing the Senses and in terms of all albums, the highly successful singles album in 2006. The first single, "We Are the People", preceded the album, being released on 9 June. It was the last album to feature Mark Richardson on Drums before departing in 2009.
The album was recorded at the Crypt Studios in North London, England, with the help of long-time friend of the band Matt Sime. Like their 1999 album Yesterday Went Too Soon, the album was self-produced. Three tracks feature backing vocals by Sarah Clark- bassist and singer with Bang Bangs, a project signed to Sime's publishing company Black Circle.
Despite the problems that occurred behind the scenes at the band's then record label Echo, which resulted in their dissolution, the album managed to reach #3 on the UK iTunes album chart, and debuted at #8 in the official UK Albums Chart, but still became their first ever album not to go silver. The song "Miss You" is also credited to being featured on the video game Midnight Club: Los Angeles.
So Much For The City
Five friends who grew up together in Dublin, called the Thrills, have produced a remarkably neat debut album. At the heart of their sound is a professed love for the tunes of the American West Coast of the '60s and '70s. Set to a backdrop of Al Green, Carole King, and the Band, they quickly pieced together tracks for their debut album, So Much for the City, during a four-month holiday on a beach in San Diego. But the Thrills aren't afraid to display more modern influences: a small audience at an Abbey Road gig was handed a one-sided 7" single with a cover of the Smiths' classic "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me." Their band name is also partly inspired by Michael Jackson's LP Thriller, and they covered "Billie Jean" on the English television show RE:COVERED. The three singles stand out on first listen as being radio-friendly hits: "Big Sur" opens with a zap of electronic keyboards, is driven by a melancholic banjo riff, and reinterprets the lyrics from the Monkees' theme: "Hey, hey you're the Monkees/People said you monkeyed around, but nobody's listening now." "Santa Cruz (You're Not That Far)" has an inventive time-shifting melody and gorgeous backing vocals, but "One Horse Town," while being a satisfying slice of surf pop, is too repetitive and bland.
There are moments when the Thrills produce some lavish, well-crafted pop songs: "Your Love Is Like Las Vegas" is a glorious uptempo anthem that features an inspired choppy guitar solo. Unfortunately, the slower songs on the album break up the uplifting momentum of the LP: "Hollywood Kids" and "'Til the Tide Creeps In" just drag along and aren't as successful as the simpler, jauntier numbers like the Dukes of Hazzard-style country-pop of "Say It Ain't So." With its impeccable vocal harmonies, catchy hooks, breathy laid-back vocals, and upbeat simple tunes, this is perfect bubblegum music with a nostalgic sound that adopts the sun-seeking vibe and sound of the Golden State, but still manages to remain contemporary. As for the rest, the one-dimensional repetitive lyrics ("You said, 'Let's go to San Diego/Hey that's where all the kids go'" on "Deckchairs and Cigarettes") do begin to irritate after a while, particularly when vocalist Conor Deasy constantly name-checks American cities. So it comes as no surprise that the band should record its debut LP in Los Angeles. Tony Hoffer, the producer behind Air, Beck, and the Smashing Pumpkins, offers a competent helping hand but the album would have benefited from a dirtier, bluesier sound; the production is far too polished, giving the LP a somewhat sterile feel. Still, So Much for the City is at times a beautifully rendered album with surprisingly solid songwriting; it's an unashamedly nostalgic musical postcard from the American West Coast. As a first LP, it shows signs of real promise, but it remains to be seen what direction the Thrills will follow next. They simply can't keep on borrowing from the Americana musical gold mine for much longer, because they couldn't sustain listener interest across the space of a second album.
