    This was the 1st Kasabian album that I have listened to in full, and the more you listen it the better it sounds, Where did all the lover go, Fast Fuse, Fire all great indie classics,

    totally amazing, they become more sophisticated at lyrics and music, althought a little too mainstream for the band

  1. The result is an interesting, unexpected piece of work, devoid of a militantly commercial single like Empire's self-titled track, and lacking the shaggy Madchester vibes that Christopher Karloff brought to 2004's Kasabian.
  2. One suspects the end product here may have had more to do with the record's producer than its creators, and as a result, this album is as unconvincing as the band's hollow assurances that they're open to embracing new horizons.
  3. Sounding more like Animal Collective than The La’s, in these times when one wrong move is seeing bands of Kasabian’s stature sink like stones, it seemed a brave comeback.
