Biography by David Jeffries
Kasabian took the British press by storm in the early 2000s by mixing traces of the Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, and Primal Scream with Oasis-sized confidence and DJ Shadow-influenced electronics. Named after Linda Kasabian, Charles Manson's getaway driver turned state witness, the Leicester-based group also stole a page from the Band by moving into a remote ...

Product Description

'We're all wasting away!' barks vocalist Tom Meighan on the opening, title track to Kasabian's second album, Empire. A quick peek at the sales figures, however, proves that lean times are most certainly not on the horizon. After clocking up close to a million sales of their debut album, Leicester's post-baggy rock troupe have returned with an album that ramps up all their key hallmarks: the swagger of the Gallagher brothers, the wide-pupils euphoria of acid house/acid-rock, and the crushing, propulsive dancefloor heaviness of beered-up disco rabble-rousers Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim. From "Last Trip (In Flight)", a sort of gospel-enhanced remake of Hawkwind's "Silver Machine", to the driving, techno-engineered "Stuntman", it's heavy on the choruses, heavy on the fireworks, and seemingly custom-made for a festival crowd – which is, of course, no bad thing. "British Legion" is a surprising stand-out, an Lennon-esque ballad accompanied by acoustic guitar. And while the mystic-tinged "Sun/Rise/Light/Flies" suggests that shimmering Indian strings might be becoming as much of a cliché as the bolt-on orchestra was in Britpop times, you somehow doubt Kasabian are at all bothered by the prospect of being too obvious. After all, it's the job of Empire to stamp Kasabian's name onto your face with a hob-nailed boot, and it succeeds in its mission admirably. –-Louis Pattison

3.0 out of 5 stars Just about ok 11 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is a mixture of good, bad and ugly songs. There are a few great songs on here, such as Shoot the Runner, and Doberman, but the rest seem to range between average and poor. It doesn't feel like a complete album actually, more like rushed together set of 'fillers' with a couple of potential singles. I was pretty disappointed really, but if you're a big fan of Kasabian it's probably worth getting, just about. If you didn't think that much of their first album then don't even look at this one!

Not as good as kasabian's debut album in my opinion. The singles from the album are good but there's not much else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kasabian empire 27 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
all i can say really is i really like this cd though music is pretty subjective and what i like might not be by the next man,but there isnt a song on this cd that i dont like as usually you have 2 good songs per album and the rest is pretty much filler, sadly. ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality incapsulated 9 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
The guys from Kasabian have dug right into the heart of what it is to be kasabian. The sound is theirs, you know its theirs, the melodic stomping at the heart of every song, almost a heartbeat itself. Quality album, sheer British Class!!

Quick charlie baton down the hatches, KASABIAN are coming!!! Rock n Roll !
