  1. Such are the highs, the weaker material suffers by comparison. [Sep 2004, p.111]
  2. Still waiting for the next Lo Fidelity Allstars album? Wish there were more Stereo MC's-like stuff in car ads? Wondering where great songwriting teams like Gallagher/Gallagher have gone? Then Kasabian were made for you! They offer all the same thrills of the aforementioned artists, and they sound like Primal Scream, too!
  3. Much has been made of Kasabian's attempts to blend electronic sounds within those of a more conventional rock outfit... Yet for all that, I'm not fully convinced that the attempts here are always successful. At times the band doesn't seem to have fully integrated it into their sound; the two elements often come off as separate entities.
  4. Kasabian need an aptitude for more than just attitude. [11 Mar 2005, p.104]
  5. Kasabian is brash, loutish, and seems liable at times to cut you; the consistent kick drum beat throughout it is like a great party's heartbeat. But like the roustabout in the corner, drinking all the lager and scratching up your old records, it can be more loudmouthed than substantial.
  6. Let it be said here first: Kasabian is indisputably one of the most important albums of 1997. Unfortunately, it’s 2005, and we’re left wondering just what the hell they're trying to pull.
  7. There isn't much substance to the band's secondhand dance rock.
  8. 40
    Their tedious bravado is more entertaining than their music. [Apr 2005, p.122]
