    It's a lot different from their previous albums, but different is not necessarily a bad thing. The pop-ish sound of Velociraptor!, with its catchy songs, is a solid, fun to listen to album

    It's retro and ridiculous; it's music that sounds like what tight trousers strutting down the boulevard with maximum attitude looks like, and it will likely sound even better in an arena filled with thousands upon thousands of partisan fanatics.

    The "big-in-England" quartet's fourth release is more of the same that made them so admired overseas;ie trippy yet expansive psychedelic Brit-pop sung and played with attitude (some may say ego), a whip smart attention to melody and an arena sensibility/swagger that screams "rock stars."

    For Kasabian fans this will be a fine, perhaps even happy result--another album in a similar vein to satiate your lust for new music, but the nagging thought catches as it wonders how new, interesting or innovative any of this really is; the short answer is no, it's not.
