    Love them or loathe them, it is hard to ignore the brash confidence with which the band take another giant stride towards stadium dominance.

    For the most part, Velociraptor! is a stellar representation of K-sabes magnificence and dexterity.

    Kind of album you'll hear while getting high. Everything here seems very drug-alike, the voice, the lyrics or the sound of the music. I really enjoy chilling to this album with songs like "Acid Turkish Bath", "La Fée Verte" or "Days Are Forgotten". The best track on the CD is, of course, the 2nd single "Re-Wired", which is a great rock track, in contrast to the rest of 'Velociraptor!'. The tunes are catchy and the songs are diversive. It's nothing really spectacular but defintely good work. Full Review »

    It's still just bass driven rock and roll but its a big improvement on it's predecessor "West Ryder..." which was as strange a record as it's title. Velociraptor is Kasabians best record closely followed by Empire. Although there's nothing here that matches "Fire" in terms of anthems, the album as a whole is quality stuff from beginning to end. Would recommend to anyone who likes their rock with a bit of atmosphere to it. Full Review »
