An impulse buy, but WHAT an impulse!,

This might very well prove to be a 5 star CD.
I actually had never heard of the Kaiserchiefs before yesterday, when I was in MVC (Sorry Amazon) in town and heard this incredibly catchy, whimsical, clever and enjoyable music.
I hung around for track after track and they all seemed as good as each other, so I asked what it was and within minutes had a copy in my grubby hands.
Listening again now and it has elements of new wave, the Beach Boys, britpop and the latest art-bands like Franz Ferdinand, but with a distintive sound all of its own!
Just for the first 4 tracks alone this album is a 'must-have' 2005 CD, but what I really liked, above that, was
the packaging. I've not seen so much with a CD EVER - Quite took me back to the days of my youth and gatefold albums.
Great stuff, great music, great band, great packaging - Call it 4.5 stars!
