This album has to be my all time fav album...why you may ask, well their music is catchy, good to listen to at any time of the day, and overall a fantastic album. Govinda is exceptionally cool, as the use of indian lyrics just makes it superb, spiritual and something you'll want to listen to again and again...this album is definately worth buying....kula shaker are simply dudes themselves.

K is one of the greatest albums produced ever. It's so sure it's virtually official.
Mixing rock'n'roll with mystical Indian spiritualism, Crispin Mills creates something that no single genre can really describe. The mix of exceptional 70's style tracks like the explosive, bursting-with-energy opener, Hey Dude and the sublime and unorthodox Hollow Man (surely one of THE trackes of the 1990's) and songs that take their cue from Hindu spiritualism, like Govinda and Temple of everlasting light, makes this album stand out from is comparitively mediocre rivals in the Brotpop era. Smart Dogs and Tattva are the perfect mix of rock'n'roll and Hindu spiritualism.
There will certainly never be an album quite like this one ever again. BUY IT!

A mixture of classic rock & 60's psychedelia, an obsession with Eastern mysticism, and complete boredom with grunge and indie made this the fastest selling debut since Oasis' Definitely Maybe. Despite this Kula Shaker manage to stamp their own identity over the whole thing and actually succeed in building something spiritual and sensual. Hey Dude opens the album and is a full on rocker. Knight On The Town continues that theme and then Temple Of Everlasting Light acts as a bridge to the sweet spot of the album. Govinda is based around a chant and hypnotises nicely. Tattva is similar but more epic. Weak pun aside Grateful When You're Dead / Jerry Was There acknowledges their roots with appropriate gravitas. Out of time and still a classic.

This album truly is excellent, melding many different influences in such a seamless way producing an extraordinary album full of unique moments and showcasing very special talent. Hollow Man is the best track, and there isn't a weak track to be seen. All this for a debut, and listening to this makes you rue the bad second album and subsequent implosion of this wonderful band

This album provides the best in indie-rock along with eastern sitar type music. An interesting hybrid but works amazingly well in this album. Every track has a good part to it. From upbeat rock such as "hey dude" to tracks such as "govinda" and "tattva" as well. Their other album Peasants, pigs& Astronauts is not as good but is still well worth buying. It's this type of music we want to hear when we switch on the radio, not cheesy pop.

One morning in 1996 my radio alarm woke me up with a blasting classical guitar riff. I just could hear the words ‘grateful when you’re …’ played by the Dutch 3fm station. In the following weeks I did not hear the song or saw the clip on one of the TV Music channels. Suddenly there was a song with mysterious India influence. I have founded the band: Kula Shaker.

“K” is one of those strongest debut a rock band can have. In 1995 and 1996 British rock music provided an enormous fresh creative breeze in the world of music. Some of the 1996 albums stand like a rock in a bay. “K” is one of those. Some have described “K” as the LSD-driven psychedelic sitar-rock. Then, that is not totally true. It is not LSD driven, it is not a hippy album, it is not psychedelic, it is not sitar. It is just a combination of different styles smoothly put together.

The sitar is there, but it’s not a sitar album. The melloton is there, but it is not a mellotron record. It is still very refreshing to hear the song ‘Govinda’ and ‘Tattva’ starting in slow, mediation-style, to be pulled and mixed into faster rock song. The combination gives “K” the rocking mysterious touch. ‘Hey Dude’, is the outright fast swing-a-long shoutalong rocker. ‘Temple of Everlasting Light’ is the even more Indian-influenced style, but still rockmusic: acoustic guitar with Indian rhythms but heavier sound. ‘Grateful when you’re dead’, I consider it a nod of the head to Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac ‘Oh well’. Blasting powerful guitar rock in the first part of the song suddenly changed into beautiful more mellow second part.

Not before have I heard or will you hear such a creative mix of traditional rock music with heavy influence from India. It’s a mix of late 60’s rock, Indian themed pop, meditation style influence and straightforward Indierock. Unheard in 1996. At the time considered retro-tastic. Now I consider “K” as classic britrock.

I just felt compelled after reading the dia review before me. Kula Shaker were a great band and K is a very good Brit Pop album. Listening to the tracks, you can't fault the rifs. I understand that some people may find the indian physicadellic a bit too obscure for their tastes. But for me K will always be an album that could be my Desert Island disc. It never strays from the top of my CD collection. 5 stars all the way!

This album is amazing! Everything from the haunting tradional Indian sounds to the insane wah guitar blend together perfectly to create one of the musical master pieces of the 90s. K is an instant classic. I havent stopped listening to it since I got in 1996! To travel deeper in to the depths of the Indian mystiscism get there second album which is also amazing!
