Sometimes you have to change everything, retool everything, rethink everything in order to move in the right direction. The Kooks’ Luke Pritchard knows this, in fact he positively delights in it. His band’s new album – their third, always a crucial moment – has always had one great goal. To reinvent the band from the ground up. Rather wonderfully, they’ve done ...

Product Description


On their debut album Inside In/Inside Out, Brighton band The Kooks demonstrate a real potential for greatness. That's because this young band have two crucial things going for them: a wealth of ideas and an awareness of their place in their musical lineage. Which is why it's probably so appropriate that Inside In/Inside Out was recorded at The Kinks' Ray Davies' own studio--Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard, like Davies, seems to have a knack for churning out catchy guitar-pop nuggets. So, after the brief and mellow intro of "Seaside", the album really kicks in to grab the listener by the ears, with each song better than the previous. Sofa Song" is a strumming, singalong bounce, but "Eddie's Gun" is a rough-around-the-edges jangly rocker, and "Ooh La" is a mellow and melodic stroll, all building up to the downright funky tracks like "Matchbox" and "Naive". nd so it continues, through 14 songs, propelled by Pritchard's hiccupping vocal delivery and Hugh Harris's rather excellent guitar playing. The Kooks had a lot of hype prior to the release of Inside In/Inside Out; rather impressively, they've more than managed to live up to it. --Ted Kord

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR ANY KOOKS FAN 18 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
This CD includes songs taken from two live acoustic shows (one at Abbey Road and one in Osaka, Japan).

I am a massive Kooks fan and it was great to listen to the songs from their album "Inside In Inside Out" acoustically, recorded live.

The above amazon track listing is not correct, but the CD does feature most of the songs listed, plus a brilliant version of "California".

There is even a bit of commentary between songs from Luke Pritchard, as he talks to the audience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Strong Debut 15 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is bursting with energy. It takes the excited, almost child-like glee and presence of pop-rock with the sound of great indie. What you get is music that sound great, even on repeat, and a band that is also highly likeable. They sound like the kind of people you would want to meet in a pub and have a light-hearted chat with. This album features some great songs ("Sofa Song" stands out, as well as "Eddie's Gun") and I would recommend it to anyone. It seems suitable for any mood or occasion. With that glowing praise I still can't give it 5 stars as that 5th star is reserved for albums of legendary status. This album is very good, buy it now and let it all go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb 20 Jan 2006
By Mic
Format:Audio CD
Having been introduced to the Kooks through a friend, and was even booked tickets to see them before I had ever heard a song by them - I was genuinely impressed when I was given an advance of this album by the same friend.
The album starts with an acoustic Coldplay-type track named 'Seaside'. Although at first this was the track I initially skipped, I find myself frequently reciting the lyrics in my head.
The album continues to be strong throughout. Luke Pritchard's vocal range is staggering and his Brighton accent remains an infectious attraction all through the solid album.
The standout track is without a doubt 'Niave' which has some superb vocal lines that are bound to stay in your head for days. The guitars sound great on this track, but again Pritchard sells the song with sheer brilliance.
Other standout tracks include the seemingly monotone 'Ooh La' - that eventually develops into a great middle track for the album.
Perhaps my only criticisms are the lyrics. Whilst some may find them straightforward and to the point, in my mind they lack any real depth. (Eg. "I want you back, please give it me back). Additionally, there are some experimental tracks - namely 'Match Box' that perhaps, whilst showing diversity, should have been left out.
Nevertheless, a superb album by some talented Indie lads. It is refreshing to see a young British band producing such catchy stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing I've heard in a long time 1 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'm not going to come on here and write a load of stuff thinking I'm some great music critic. Straight up, this is one of the best albums I've heard in my 23 years on this planet. It's not a grower, it's bang on the money from the first time you hear it. I'm going to see them in October and I can't wait. Naive is not the best song on the album, far from it. Buy it, I promise it will be the smartest money you'll ever spend. The first song is soooooo good. One last comment, 5 stars are not enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, Must Have. 11 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is amazing, forget the Artic Monkeys, Hard Fi's, Franz Ferdinands etc because the Kooks blow them all away with this stunning debut album.
The album is so varied with standout tracks "She Moves In Her Own Way", "Sofa Song","Eddie's Gun" and "Ooh La".
If you're a fan of Indie/Rock - The Kooks will be at T In the Park, Isle Wight, and Oxygen festivals this summer.
Finally if you've never heard of the Kooks they are releasing "Naive" on March 27th 2006.
Kooks Fans - lets hope it hits number 1!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 8 May 2006
By Jamer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on the back of hearing Naive on the radio. Naive is an amazing song but it's one of the worst on the album, that tells you just how good Inside In/Inside Out is. It's one of those imense albums where every song is amazing, the last (relitevly) recent album i heard that even came close to such afeet was Hot Fuss(Killers) or perhaps There's Nothing Left to Loose(foos).

Inside in inside out keeps you on your toes with lots of quite short (2-3min)tracks.(no short songs have been so good since the Britpop classic Song 2, Wooohooo!). They're constantly moving on to yet anouther amazing one, with great acoustic guitar,lyrics and vocals this is the best indie album for yonks

Get it!!!!
