TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 13 June 2014
The Kooks second album is a solid follow-up to their highly promising debut 'Inside In/Inside Out' and, although there appears to be no real progression in the material delivered here, the band are tight and riff-driven in much the same way that 'Supergrass' were back in the mid-1990s. Luke Pritchard, who writes most of the songs, is clearly talented; this album is definitely worth investing especially at the highly competitive price of under £1!!

I was a little put off by the negative reviews on here but whilst on a long flight recently I decided to give Konk a whirl. I really isn't bad! If you like the singles you'll like the album, simple as. It's not a few good songs and the rest is pap.
Perhaps I'm wrong but the thing I find with The Kooks is that they're a pub band - I just don't see their music getting played at a huge festival somewhere and sounding good. In a small sweaty pub, excellent though! Don't think this is a bad thing though.

It's the not the kind of music I'd ordinarily listen to but good songs are good songs. This album is packed with them. It's really, really good. And that caught me as a massive surprise upon first hearing it. I still hate skinny jeans though.

I must be the only person who thinks this is better than the first (which I loved)

The first relied on 3 -4 absolute stand out tracks, this one doesnt its more consistent but still very uplifting.

And I recommend the special edition, RAK is mellow and slow but good. worth having.

Now for that difficult 3rd album :-)

this album has real kick, punch and the ability to cheer the party up,
such a spectacular sound from such young talent, the production sound is amazing,
tight and punchy, with great synergy between drums and bass, and guitar licks that
enter your head with brilliance and can produce ecstacy,

great album, highly recommended,
