I wasn't really sure what to expect from the Chiefs' second album. Their first album was a successful hit, and I wasn't sure they could improve on it. I was proved wrong.

'Yours Truly, Angry Mob', is a more guitar-driven affair, with catchy hooks and superb vocals. KC maintain their radio-friendly image but they also add a more rocking sound to their already accomplished sound.

'Ruby' was the first single to be released and it's not difficult to see why. Shot straight to number one in the singles charts and has a great chorus mixed with brilliant guitar riffs. Ricky Wilson's vocals are improved on 2004's 'Employment', and his vocals have always been strong. An excellent opener. 10/10.

'The Angry Mob' is another anthem, and a typical KC song. Catchy, memorable and brilliant. The part where Wilson begins to sing 'We are the angry mob, we read the papers every day....' is sure to be a highlight around stadiums wherever they go. Superb. 9/10.

'Heat Dies Down' is track three, and it maintains the intensity and purpose of the previous two tracks. This is more in the vein of 'Ruby' than 'The Angry Mob' to be honest. Excellent riffs, and an infectious chorus, coupled with superb, witty, sharp songwriting. This song is the Chiefs at their very best. 10/10.

Track four is 'Highroyds', which harks back to the band's youth. Wilson sings sharply about their teenage years. 'No need for ID with those dresses...' is one witty line among many. The 'woo's' are catchy and the riffs are equally as rememberable. The song finishes with Wilson singing about an ex asking for a song to be written about her...'I don't think so!' is Wilson's emphatic answer to that. Excellent. 9/10.

I liked 'unemployment' but like was as much as I ever felt of it. It was overhyped in my opinion and the songs got boring, if the singles weren't played as much then maybe I would of appreicated it more, but blame music TV for that.

I got this as a present for my birthday and thought that maybe the chiefs were going to be more than an 'ok' band after I listened to this, and I was right. Everyones heard 'Ruby' the catchy tune thats currently one of the best songs of '07, and as soon as that ends the rest of the album doesn't disappoint with more catchy tunes and riffs, on a whole they sound a bit different to the unemployed chiefs on some tracks but very very similar on others.

The music is just so chilled out and easy to listen to, and the lyrics are brilliant. You can hear that they have put much thought into this album, which is an uncommon thing for a modern band to do, and therefore I praise them for this album, its a great CD to put in my music collection,

recommended, if you are a fan of the fratellis, the killers and other indie mainstream music.

I'm surprised to read the negative reviews here, Unimaginative, and uninspiring are just some of the terms I've read that have surprised me. 'Rock' never used to be my thing, the kaiser chiefs among some others have changed my mind on that. This is a brilliant second album. Of note of course is the brilliant 'Ruby'. 'Everything is average nowadays?' not with this album my dears.

Yours Truly, Angry Mob surprised to see this is selling for £5 on amazon because this is a superb 2nd album from the Kaisers with the hit singles Ruby,Angry Mob and my personal favourite Love Is Not A Competition (But I'm Winning]. High energy Brit pop on steroids.

The second album from this English five-man band finds the Chiefs sticking to basic radio-friendly anthems like flies to flypaper. More Britpop than the first album Employment, most of the songs are instantly catchy, but share a certain "sameness" that may cause some tracks to be gone and forgotten before they get even fifteen minutes of fame.

First single "Ruby" is one of the ones you'll remember, especially if your name happens to be Ruby. The song has already become the band's biggest single to date, due to the cool intro and beat, but other than a lot of "da da daaas" and "ahaa, ahaa ahaas", and of course "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Rubys", there isn't a lot going for the song lyrically.

Second single "Everything is Average Nowadays" is another upbeat song, but there are better on the album. A track to note is "The Angry Mob", which although is actually an attack on the press, has a chorus that will stick in your head forever:

"We are the angry mob

We read the papers everyday day

We like who we like

We hate who we hate

But we're also easily swayed"

The others are "Heat Dies Down" - another great chorus; "Highroyds"; the slower paced "Love's Not a Competition (But I'm Winning)"; and the quirky "My Kind of Guy" (I like this one)

Kaiser Chiefs may have gone pop on this album, but the carefully baited hooks will have you coming back for more.

'Yours Truly, Angry Mob' was always going to be a very high-profile release given the outstanding success of their debut, 'Employment' and their second album has, without doubt, proved that The Kaiser Chiefs are no one album wonder, delivering an album that is, arguably, every bit as good as their first. The secret to the success is combining slightly dark, intelligent lyrics that many 'real' people can almost certainly relate to with some of the most annoyingly brilliant catchy mainstream indie (how's that for an oxymoron?) music. They combine the best elements of both the popular, rabble-rousing Oasis and the witty, subversive Blur very effectively and yet are always unmistakeably The Kaiser Chiefs.

I doubt if there are many people who have heard 'Ruby' on the radio and then have been left desperately trying to get that chorus out of their head and, if you listen to the whole of this album, there are many other hooks which will drive you crazy as you start singing it for perhaps the seventeenth time that day. It does, however, make me wonder just how many people outside the UK will be able to relate to some of their lyrics which are very typically working-class Britain at it's best and worst, whether it's talking about 24-hour drinking yob culture in 'The Angry Mob' or growing up hanging around the streets in 'High Royds', a song that is reminiscent of Blur at their 'Parklife' peak. Oddly enough, this particular album has received criticism from both Liam Gallagher and Damon Albarn who liken 'Yours Truly, Angry Mob' to 'bad Blur'. I respectfully disagree.
