Kasabian return with album number 4 the weirdly titled "Velociraptor", so it should come as no surprise that this is one of Kasabian's most ambitious albums to date, not bad for a band that has seen lazy journalism call Kasabian, Oasis clones and labelled them lad rock. While Kasabian might share some of Oasis confidence and swagger their music has always been more closely linked to Primal Scream, Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses and even 70's glam rock. A quick look back at their 3 previous albums would show a band not scared to experiment with different styles and sounds.

The album opens with "Let's Roll Like We Used To" which sees songwriter Serge Pizzorno looking back at the early days before they made it big. It's a good start to the album. On "Days Are Forgotten" the track starts off with some big beats and a funky groove and has Tom cheekily singing "You say i'm old hat, a f***in' dirty rat, call me cliche, how right you are", which is a nice dig at their critics. There's the brilliance of the Beatles-esque sounding "La Fée Verte" which is sung by Pizzorno. Add that to Kraftwerk sounding "I Hear Voices" and it shows that Kasabian are willing to experiment in as many styles of music as possible.

The title track "Velociraptor!" is a big sounding stomp that has Tom spitting out his lyric's, not to many bands could pull off a song about a dinosaur with out sounding stupid. There's the epic "Acid Turkish Bath (Shelter from the Storm)" which at over 6 minutes long sounds like Kashmir era Led Zeppelin. The album features two big tracks that are made for playing live the brilliant "Re-Wired" with its big chorus and the beat driven "Switchblade Smiles" a song that won't full be appreciated until it's played live.

If you like Kasabian it's a 'No Brainer'.

This is a really good album and they performed it brilliantly live but I cant quite bring myself to give it five stars as there is a few fillers on it for me.

I would still happily buy it again

Obviously Velociraptor! is the main part of this edition, but I already had it and Man of Simple Pleasures EP was the main reason to buy this item.
Absolutely recommended if you are a Kasabian fan, especially because of Narcotic Farm.

'Velociraptor!' (2011) is the 4th studio album by the British band Kasabian and, on this evidence, seem to have cemented their place as one of the top rock acts of the 21st Century. Sergio Pizzorno is on great form in the songwriting department; highlights include the frenetic title track, 'Days Are Forgotten', 'Goodbye Kiss' and 'Re-Wired' [I really enjoyed the mix of guitar and keyboards here]. Stylistically, the material is quite varied with the 'sounds of the Kasbah' used cleverly as a recurring theme. Definitely worth buying at a competitive price.

Mediocre at some points, definetely not as good as Empire or West Pauper, some good little tracks though like "Re-Wired" and "Switchblade Smiles". Have not really listened to it since the first time as it did not impress
