Stereophonics keep up the good work on Oochya!, with a few surprises.

Record Collector

As Oochya!'s onomatopoeic title implies, Stereophonics are still having as much fun as anyone.

Oochya! is undoubtedly one of Stereophonics’ better albums in recent times even if, at 15 tracks, it’s a little too long.

Under The Radar
Appreciating a sense of the dramatic marked by emotive gestures is a pre-requisite for embracing this band. What it provides is a powerful and uplifting musical statement.

Gigwise

Stereophonics, now a quarter of a century into their impressive career, are ticking boxes on Oochya! with occasional and well-needed sprinkles of inspired zest.

The Telegraph
The songs themselves may not be complex but the simple and sincere emotions expressed on anthems such as the chiming indie epic Forever, the rip-roaring AC/DC-style rocker Running Round My Brain and the Rod-Stewart-flavoured piano ballad Every Dog Has Its Day carry a potent weight of feeling and offer euphoric release.

The Guardian

Kelly Jones’ band revive their trusty formula, making songs that at their best hit the sweet spot between emotional and anthemic.

The Sydney Morning Herald

They are the embodiment of meat-and-potatoes rock, but now they skimp on memorable choruses and exhibit a deficiency of thrills.

Good balance between refreshing feeling and astringency.
