I mainly bought this as I like Ricky on the voice so thought I would see what his music is about. I could only name 'I Predict a Riot' as a Kaiser Chiefs track prior to buying this, I'm in my 60's, so not the demographic that usually follow this kind of music but I really like this album and have played it non-stop.

Great tunes, nicely produced and well played and sung.

Now, I have to admit that I really made Ricky Wilson's acquaintance on "The Voice" and loved "I predict a riot" which was part of the introductory music on some of the early episodes. I had heard of the Kaiser Chiefs but would not have been able to name any of their hits. So for me this album was a revelation. Great intelligent songs, catchy rock pop, a bit redolent of Squeeze and Madness and the Peppers but original and really worth listening to. Looking forward to "Education, Education, Education and War ".

If you only need one Kaiser Chiefs album - here it is!

'Souvenir' contains all the songs that you will most associate with the band, including modern day rock anthems like 'Oh My God', 'Ruby', 'I Predict A Riot' and 'The Angry Mob'. The songs aren't in any chronological order, but in an order which is pleasing to the listener.

Every single that the band has released from 2004-2012 is on here, along with the brand new song 'Listen to Your Head' and the previously unreleased 'On the Run'. It should also be noted that the version of 'You Can Have It All' is the 'light orchestral' version which was previously only available on an exclusive 7-inch single. Therefore, if you already own the four studio albums, there are three tracks on here that will be new to you.

The Kaiser Chiefs were massive around the time of their debut album 'Employment' in 2004, and their music from the start was loud, raw and aggressive. To someone who was almost teenager like myself, they always appealed to me. From day one, the lyrics to their energetic songs were always good, and almost impossible not to sing along to. Overtime, the material became more mature, which is apparent as you listen to this compilation in full, but the songs remained as uplifting as ever.

It appears that the band have unfortunately lost some of their popularity in recent years, but not their talent for writing and singing a good song (as 'Listen To Your Head' and the tracks from their fourth album 'The Future Is Medieval' testify), 'Souvenir' is a timely reminder of a great rock band who were part of my teenage years. If you enjoy indie rock music - you should be sure to give these guys a listen.

The Kaiser Chiefs made their name with loud, racuous guitar driven punk rock with a charming stripped-back simplicity that made their earlier contemporaries The Strokes and Razorlight so successful. Unfortunately unlike those bands they perhaps never had the same hipster cool and despite originally being the darlings of students across the country, latter albums saw them become maligned as a "Dad" band. A cruelly unfair prejudice against a band that had been so refreshing in its high energy fun that never took itself too seriously.

This collection shows just how much they developed from "Employment", in fact the only notable omission singles wise is from that Album with "Na Na Na Na Naaaa" missing for some inconceivable reason. Aside from that it is highly comprehensive with the big hitters from the first three albums getting things fired up nicely early on.

The new songs are absolutely fantastic and are on a par with anything they have released in the past. "Listen to your head" and "On the Run" are both syth rock masterpieces brimming with bouncing energy that conveys a clear message that despite drummer Nick Hodgson leaving, they still have plenty to offer.

Some of the later material was perhaps overlooked by many more casual fans, especially as "Future is Medieval" was released in such a fragmented way online. It was produced by a production team who have worked with David Bowie and the influences of his work are clear. "Man on Mars" is perhaps the most intelligently written song from the band and although harder to appreciate due to some complex synth arrangements, it is an enduring song as one of the few by the band that holds significance beyond a dance floor rock out.

Get several Kaiser Chiefs CD's and having all the hit singles on one CD just adds to the collection. Great music which is shared with my son and daughter - full family appreciation X

This is the first Kaiser Chief CD I have bought and I really like their style of music. Great to listen to and will get a lot of plays from me.
