5.0 out of 5 stars FULL MARKS AND BANG ON 3 April 2014
By Kelvin J. Dickinson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
So, just imagine you're sitting an exam and this question comes up: Summarise in bullet points the KAISER CHIEFS' new album, EDUCATION, EDUCATION, EDUCATION & WAR. Yes, happy to do that, makes a pleasant change from Lord of the Flies. Okay, thirty minutes, shhh, here we go...

* Tony Blair probably won't appreciate the clever title, so that's a good start. In my opinion, of course.
* Unusual WW1 and beyond-style artwork for the insert but it does reinforce the working-class call to duty theme throughout. No pics of the boys this time around either, unless there's more to those line drawings than meets the eye. No offence, but if so then your guess is as good as mine (suggest no-one lets the artist into any high court proceedings as it could only end in confusion and disappointment).
* Ten songs, seven of which are simply excellent. The remaining three 'Coming Home', 'Meanwhile Up In Heaven' and 'Roses' are okay but bordering on the bland. And 'Coming Home' is a poor choice for a single, too mainstream and lacking in character (GQ magazine's 'Made for summer stadiums' is hardly a recommendation). Opening number 'The Factory Gates' would have been so much better.
* Bill Nighy may be the new, er, Pete Best (the sixth Kaiser?), judging from his performance in 'Cannons'. Heavy and quite weird, Bill, was there a temptingly helium-filled balloon nearby? 'Cannons' is also the almost-title track, a major pulse-thumping epic. Note to all dwarf-druids: this could turn out to be the new 'Stonehenge', so don't knock it.
* Hard and driving pop music permeates the majority of this album and thank God the quirkiness is still there for all to hear (see directly above). It's what makes the Kaiser Chiefs special.

4.0 out of 5 stars A return to form.... of sorts. 31 Mar 2014
By Buzby
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It has seemed for the last few years that the Kaiser Chiefs had become a little, well, predictable. An excellent live band, but suffering from the law of diminishing returns when it came to new material. After their excellent debut Employment and it's follow up Yours Truly, Angry Mob, their subsequent offerings have been increasingly disappointing.

With the release of the greatest hits offering Souvenir, you could be forgiving for thinking that would be that and they would shuffle off to be remembered fondly by their fans and those who had enjoyed a sing-a-long at a festival or two. It seems Nick Hodgson (their drummer and the main creative driving force behind the band) agreed, announcing his departure to pursue new projects.

That there is a new Kaiser Chiefs album at all is therefore something of a surprise, and it has been written and recorded by a band who feel they have something to prove - to their former drummer, to the public, and perhaps most of all to themselves.

And prove something they have done, with one or two reservations.

At times the album feels like standard fare for the Kaiser Chiefs (The Factory Gates and Bows and Arrows, for example) and such offerings they have done better previously, although that's not to say these are bad tracks - far from it. But they are no "I Predict A Riot" or "Ruby".

But elsewhere on the album they exhibit a willingness to take risks and try something different. Coming Home is certainly a departure in style for the band, but such safe middle of the road territory is thankfully atypical - in fact, despite being the lead single for the album it feels rather out of place here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on Form! 6 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must admit I was astonished. This is a return to The Kaiser Chiefs' roots. In my opinion, it's on a par with Employment which is something I never expected. The fabulous tongue-in-cheek lyrics are still there, Vijay's drumming is alive'n'kickin'. The keyboards have matured - very similar to The Stranglers' - a good thing. The guitars and bass are even better rockier than earlier albums. "The Voice", Ricky's that is, has more ethereal quality than in previously released tracks and increasingly powerful and energetic. "The Factory Gates" is a fabulous choice for the opening track, and to be perfectly honest, the rest of the album keeps up the pace and the haunting track, "Roses" closes the album with giving you a lot of food for thought. If anyone was in danger of thinking "The Kaiser Chiefs" were past it - THINK AGAIN - they've definitely still got what it takes!!! Lookin' forward to the festival season to see them again! Keep on rockin' boys!

Personally, I found this album slightly hard to approach. After the first listen I didn't quite understand what they were doing with the whole concept of war and day-to-day working class hardships, and I thought the whole thing somehow didn't feel relevant... But I couldn't have been more wrong. Honestly I think it may be one of the best albums they've done (certainly better than the last two, although I liked them lots), it's a very well polished collection of songs that takes the Kaiser Chiefs to whole new level of brilliant. Every single song gets better and better each time you listen to it (terrible cliche I know, but seriously, I've never known anything to grow on me so much). Maybe this isn't the best album for the casual listener, but to a Kaiser Chiefs fan it's pretty damn good.

What is it about bands beginning with K? Keane, Killers. Great first album. Not so good second. Deterioration on albums 3 and 4 and then a return to form on the 5th. Read more

This album is definitely more of a sequel to Yours Truly, Angry Mob than their last once which was a little more playful. Read more
