All too often these days bands are laelled with the title "the new Stone Roses" or "the new Oasis". The same has been said of Kasabian, as one glance at the sticker of the CD case will soon show.
The big difference with this band is that they are not trying to be the new anything.
Rarely have I heard a debut album of such quality. One of the truly difficult things for a band to do is meld the standard Guitar/Bass/Drum/Vocal sound with that of heavy Electronica, but Kasabian have pulled it off with a stroke of genius.
Other comments have focused on the lack of real songwriting ability. It is true that the vocals, whilst very well delivered, do lack some substance; but then this band do not seem to be trying to give us Ocean Colour Scene quality lyrics, and have focused more on their undoubted talent at writing songs to pull you in an hook you. And they have done that very nicely, thank you.
The stand out tracks on the album include the storming "L.S.F. (Lost Souls Forever)", sure to become a festival anthem in the summer, "Ovary Stripe", perhaps the best instrumental I have heard since the Melody AM album by Royksopp, and "Reason is Treason".
The real question, and one that so often leads to disappontment these days, is how good the follow-up will be. Whilst this album sets them apart from so many bands, can their second album do the same? On the basis of this album, I truly hope that there is much more to come.

I think Kasabian are one of the best acts around at the moment. I normally get bored very easily, however I bought this album a good while ago and I still listen to it all the time.

As with most albums the first few tracks are definitely the strongest songs, but the entire album is very strong.

I would not skip through any o fthe tracks on the album......and on the last track if you let it play on theres a banging version of Reason Is Treason which will blow you away!!!

I'd not heard much about Kasabian before buying the new album. I'd heard 'L.S.F' and 'Processed beats' and this was enough to convince me to buy! U know how it is though. You hear a track or two off an album, go and buy it and feel let down when the rest is below average.
NOT, however, with this! From the opening 'Club Foot' with its tribal chants, guitar heavy licks and phat beats, all the way through to the epic-sounding (if short) 'Ovary Stripe', this album needs a minimum of 3 spins a day! Their use of conventional music production mixed with the synth based side, and the way it mixes and drops in and out of these different genres makes this a real 'thinkers' record (see 'Reason is Treason). One minute the track is pounding alond, beats-heavy and sounding very rock-like, the next it breaks down into an ethereal swirl of pads and synth stabs before dropping back into the beats once again.
My personal fave from the record has to be 'I.D', it has everything that a song should have. Emotion, drive, decent lyrics and a completely awe-inspiring feel. Press that repeat button!
Tom Meighans vocals slice into you with (dare I say it) an almost Gallagher-esque resonance mixed with the attitude of Shaun Ryder. The rest of the band follow suit, with Sergio Pizzorno's guitar twisting and churning out the riffs. For an album mixed by Jim Abiss (the guy behind DJ Shadow), you can certainly hear the input he's brought to this disc.
So, all in all I highly recommend this disc. Buy it, play it, enjoy it.

The swing of modern music towards the banal and predictable has become an increasingly frustrating issue today, so it is certainly rewarding to uncover a unique and progressive sounding band like Kasabian. In this debut album they incorporate electronic backing with ethereal second coming-era stone roses guitar to produce a mix which although indie in style, is also as meaty and thought provoking as say, Radiohead or Muse. "John he was a scientist/he was hooked on Lsd," the psychadelic humour that opens the inspiring Cutt Off, and "all lying across the ground/try not to make no sound," the bleak, apocalyptic call of Running Battle show a range in subject matter, whilst still reinforcing the ever present social conscious and drug-addled craziness that run throughout.
LSF and Processed beats blare like the most established of anthems and in reason is Treason the album finds its fulcrum and focal point, sounding like love spreads for a new generation. Overall, if you Like Primal Scream, The Stone Roses, Muse and you're bored with Keane, Feeder, Embrace and the like the chances are you will certainly get good mileage from this CD.

This album came to me from a friend and i was relatively unaware of the band, but since hearing singles such as LSF and Processed Beats Kasabian have since become a favourite in my music selection. With a fantastic live show this band are set for stage glory. The album itself is very unique with a small hint of Primal Scream here and there but overall a very special and groundbreaking album. This album is not for everyone but for fans of Franz Ferdinand, The Stills and possibly Million Dead. It is fantastic to see bands like Kasabian being part of the new wave of fantastic music coming from Britain.
