5.0 out of 5 stars There is HOPE for modern MUSIC, 22 July 2010
This review is from: West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum (Audio CD)
As a 41 year old I would like to think i'm quite open to what I listen to, whether it be; Reggae, Pop, Rock, Soul, Dance, Dubstep the list of genre's is endless..... lol. But over the last ten years or so, i've been quite disappointed in the decline of much of today's modern music. Why? well! most of today's music has lost something, can't exactly put my finger on it, it could be because it's lost it's soul, it's irony, it's power to provoke whatever it is I find myself drifting to the classics, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix etc, etc... The last group that really spoke to me was Radiohead which had passion, intrigue, soul and most of all it was music that you couldn't ignore. GOOD MUSIC to me, whatever genre it is, is suppose to move you, either emotionally, physically, or intellectually.
This ALBUM is one of those albums, I can happily say. If you are after an album which makes your feet tap, brain think, heartpound and most of all put a smile on your face, BUY THIS MAJESTIC ROCK ALBUM. THANKS BOYS.

Agreed. Good review.

And it's not age. I'm 22 and totally agree with you and have been listening mostly to classic rock for the last 8 years(ish). I think its because most modern bands seem scared of using their instruments and simultaneously dislike lyrics which aren't vapid and cliché. I think at some point the music industry noticed that streams of mediocre songs will still sell so why risk dividing the market with anything different or progressive. It seems to me that all new songs are about love/sex or a sort of self indulgent list of reasons the person singing/rapping is justified to increase the size of their ego, or in some case simple nonsense with no meaning, combined with either a backing track of the same re-used electronic bass noise sequence or the most basic chord progression a guitarist can find. That gets boring and is also where Kasabian differ because they seem to be willing to experiment with sounds more and make riffs. The start of Underdog or Vlad The Impaler for example have powerful opening riffs like modern day versions of AC/DC or Deep Purple and fire has those explosive sections which quickly disappear like american bands Kiss, Aerosmith or Foreigner used to use. Kasabians lyrics sound like meaningless gibberish to me though lol.

Or maybe I'm wrong, full of rubbish and just saw an opportunity to rant.
