outstanding debut makes a possible album of the year,
This review is from: Kasabian (Audio CD)
4 blokes from Leicester competently take up the legacy left by the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays. A finer example of "neo-baggy" grooves you'll not find anywhere.
Sporting infective hooks and beats that will have you shuffling like Ian Brown, Kasabian have surely got to be the antidote to Coldplay and Keane.
Evidencing clear influences from the aforementioned muscial heavyweights, Kasabian weave an intoxicating brew of fine British music. Their style is not limited just to Manchester's flavour though; Ovary Stripe could easily be found on a DJ Shadow album.There's even the odd obscure nod to Kraftwerk in some of the synth lines too.
Outstanding stuff, a compulsory buy.
