“It’s a word that looks and sounds beautiful,” says Luke Pritchard. “I love the roundness of it, the simplicity of it.” The word the Kooks singer is extolling is “Listen” – which also happens to be the title of the band’s new album. Luke’s reasons for choosing that title become clear the moment you dive into the new record – as ... Read more in Amazon's The Kooks Store

Product Description

Product Description

April 14th will see the release of `Konk', the eagerly awaited new album from The Kooks. It is their second album, and the follow-up to their hugely successful 2006 debut `Inside In/Inside Out' which sold some two million copies worldwide and spawned massive singles `She Moves In Her Own Way', `You Don't Love Me', `Sofa Song', `Eddie's Gun', `Ooh La' and `Naïve'.

`Konk' was recorded over a six week period at the tail-end of 2007 in Ray Davies' Konk Studios in north London, plus a week at Los Angeles' Sound Factory. The sessions once again united the group with esteemed producer Tony Hoffer (Beck/Air/The Fratellis). Explaining how he came to suggest the album title, guitarist Hugh says, `I just started thinking how cool the studio is, and how much of a part of our sound it is.'

`Konk' features twelve tracks. There's `Gap' which is classic Kooks, and `Shine On' which finds Luke exploring hitherto unchartered lyrical territory over the loveliest of melodies. It's destined to become another lynchpin in The Kooks' live set. First single `Always Where I Need To Be' is a tumbling rocker with a `do-do-do, do-do-do-do' refrain that might just be the catchiest thing they've ever done. `Sway' and `Mr Maker' are other album highlights.

The Kooks release 'Konk' on April 14th on Virgin Records, preceded by their new single `Always Where I Need To Be' on March 31st.

5.0 out of 5 stars great album 23 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
this is a great album, almost living up the the greatness of the kooks's first album. All the songs are catchy and well written, my favourite have to be Mr Maker, stormy weather and shine on, recommended for people who haven't listened to the kooks before, and also for their previous fans

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the extra few quid.. 19 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, Rak is brilliant. I've listened to it more than Konk infact, I was just amazed at how the Kooks have progressed and how they are experimenting with some really different sounds.. if it weren't for Luke's voice on a couple of tracks you would never guess it was them, they've really broadened their sound on this cd.

Shows this band have really got talent, so DEFINITELY go for the double cd version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets more boring with each listen 27 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is ok, strangely on my first listen I (thought I) instantly loved it, but the more I listen to it the more often I find myself skipping through tracks. Track 1 is perhaps the best, a number of others (maybe even the whole second half of the album) are pretty bland and are second rate versions of tracks off the first album. Plus Luke's voice begins to grate after a while. I've no doubt I'll give it more of a chance yet but I'll do that at the risk of becoming even more bored with it. Finally I can't see myself still listening to this in a year's time, whereas, thanks to 'Konk'(which is possibly the best thing about the album), I've rediscovered their first album and have found myself listening to it all over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars good album and a great new sound! 3 May 2008
By Graham
Format:Audio CD
i loved the kooks first album, and this is an impressive return. luke pritchard writes pretty much all the songs on the albums and really steps up to the always difficult second album. there's a different feeling with this new album and the sound is more mature and developed! the songs are more creative guitar wise and luke's vocals are very impressive! the second disc is a good effort and has a few different sound i hope they incorporate into future albums. the most exciting band around in british music at the moment and a solid effort!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy! 22 Jun 2008
By Marcus
Format:Audio CD
The Kooks have prooven with Konk/Rak that they've developed greatly from their first album.

Every song is distinguishable and keeps the joyful feel whilst listening.

Watching The Ships Roll In is a truely beautiful song and in my opinion is worth the extra 3 for the double CD album alone.

All the songs give the feeling that they have all had an even ammount of time put in to them, I couldn't find a bad song!

Konk/Rak is definitely worth every penny!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album with great extra CD 19 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
'Rak' is very good, i'm even tempted to say that it's better than Konk itself. On a few of the former's tracks Luke Pritchard doesn't sing but rather the lead guitarist Hugh. His voice has much more depth than Pritchard and makes for some amazingly emotive and deep songs. I think that Watching The Ships Roll In and No Longer are truly fantastic and much better than anything on Konk. These two tracks are worth the 12.95 or whatever it is that the album costs, and are definitely good enough to warrant buying the limited edition copy rather than the normal version.

Trust me, the progression of the band and the use of Hugh's amazing voice is something definitely worth listening to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid second album 13 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Kooks second album is a solid follow-up to their highly promising debut 'Inside In/Inside Out' and, although there appears to be no real progression in the material delivered here, the band are tight and riff-driven in much the same way that 'Supergrass' were back in the mid-1990s. Luke Pritchard, who writes most of the songs, is clearly talented; this album is definitely worth investing especially at the highly competitive price of under 1!!
