3.0 out of 5 stars Honestly a little disapointed 2 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
I loved Employment, found Yours Truly, Angry Mob a bit boring and I feel this album is a decline from that. One or two tracks stand out as OK (Never miss a beat and Half the truth) but the rest sort of blend into a mish-mash of disappointment on my point. It's just such a shame because I think Kaiser Chiefs have so much potential to be so much better. Early efforts such as I Predict a Riot and Every Day I love you less and less were completely brilliant.
Don't get me wrong, it's not awful, any hardcore fans will probably still enjoy it, but it's not for someone looking for a nice bit of catchy indie rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you might expect it to be 21 Oct 2008
By Richard
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So here we are nearing the end of another decade, and just like we were all fatigued with dance music by the very end of the 90s, we are now all starting to get indie fatigued out. And with a lot of modern guitar bands, they do outstay their welcome, with a law of diminishing returns as the albums go by. So I wasn't expecting a great third album from the Kaiser Chiefs, but you know what, it's not half bad.

Their debut 'Employment' had the killer hit singles but it was a bit patchy. 'Yours Truly Angry Mob' was more consistent but lacked the killer hit singles - although they were still quite good and were highly successful. 'Off With Their Heads' is closer in spirit to 'Employment' but this time it has more of a New Wave sound to it - as opposed to a Britpop one with XTC, The Stranglers and The Clash (it's those Joe Strummer style vocals on 'Good Days Bad Days') springing to mind. This album has the best of both worlds, it's got the punchy power pop energy of the first one and the polish and consistency of the second (with perhaps the only exception being 'Addicted To Drugs' which is, let's face it - pants!). Plus it doesn't outstay it's welcome being about only 35/36 mins long. This has great tunes on it like: 'Never Miss A Beat', 'Like It Too Much' (has wonderful late Beatles era string arrangements to it), 'Good Days Bad Days', 'Tomato In The Rain' and 'Always Happens Like That' etc. So I don't think it's time to be "off with their heads" just yet. Also, they seem really up for it on this. Treat yourself, you may be surprised at how good it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reassuringly Familiar 16 Oct 2008
By Z
Format:Audio CD
Just been listening to the new album and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nothing terribly new in there, but if you like power-pop with catchy riffs and neat hooks (as I do) you'll like this. The production is maybe a little bit slicker, but Mark Ronson has resisted the urge to put his own, er, mark on the recording at the expense of the band's well-established vibe. The familiar lumpen-political rantings of "Never Miss A Beat" (What do you want for tea?/I want crisps - take that, Jamie Oliver!) are a sign of the bands continuing critical affection for the good old stereotype working class lads and lasses oop North, but in a strictly take-no-nonsense way. Foot-tapping songs with articulate lyrics, a combination not to be sneezed at. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars AUTO-PILOT OVER-RELIANCE 28 April 2009
By Kelvin J. Dickinson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The third album in any band's career is usually an important milestone, sort of a pointer to the future, having taken stock of the past. Not so here. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS is simply the KAISER CHIEFS treading water with no significant evidence of musical progression. Why should that matter? I'm not exactly sure...probably because I've yet to become indifferent towards the band, although I hope that never happens.

However, the production is clean and uncluttered and sounds good played loud. And it's a largely enjoyable, upbeat listen too. Standout tracks include NEVER MISS A BEAT, LIKE IT TOO MUCH, CAN'T SAY WHAT I MEAN and 'The Odd Couple' theme-reminiscent TOMATO IN THE RAIN. Standing out for all the wrong reasons, GOOD DAYS BAD DAYS sounds like The Skids on an even worse day and should really have been left off the album. Perhaps there was a shortage of alternatives.

The sing-along choruses remain intact (always thinking about the live gigs) but one nice touch which won't be reproduced too easily on stage is the ELO-ish string section on LIKE IT TOO MUCH. It works and it's the only real indication of something different going on. The fact that it's a firmly retro touch doesn't surprise but one thought which occurs, and which I haven't been able to shake, is that this album would not have seemed out of place in 1980; 12" vinyl in a small independent record shop, in the section marked 'New Wave'.

Ricky Wilson, Nick Hodgson, Simon Rix, Nick Baines and Andrew White have other ideas in mind, however: they all want to be The Beatles - and Wilson even said in an interview that they were looking to make their own 'Abbey Road' - well, not here and not now, Ricky, not with this much reliance on the auto-pilot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bland and not much of it 30 Oct 2008
By Al
Format:Audio CD
I was very disappointed with this album. There are no stand-out tracks other than the hit single Never Miss A Beat. Some other tracks may grow on me in time, but haven't done so yet (after several plays).

The album only contains just over half an hour of music, which is very short by today's standards. I wouldn't mind if it was half an hour of quality without the filler tracks you get on many albums, but this is half an hour of mainly bland, boring tracks. It suggests they were struggling to write enough material for this album.

Nowhere near as good as their previous albums.
