Album Review

After the release of 2005's highly enjoyable Employment, it looked like the Leeds-based rockers were set to take over the planet. The band's explosive mix of blue-collar, pub-style indie rock and classic Brit-pop felt both timely and nostalgic, and tracks like "I Predict a Riot," "Oh My God," "Everyday I Love You Less and Less," and "Ruby," the latter of which appeared on the group's decent yet uneven sophomore outing, Your Truly, Angry Mob, proved to be durable stadium singalongs that would follow the band well into the next decade. Subsequent records like the likable but gimmicky Mark Ronson-produced Off with Their Heads and 2011's fan-sculpted Future Is Medieval and its 2012 American counterpart, Start the Revolution Without Me, suffered from a severe lack of the infectious hooks that drew listeners into the fold the first time around, which is probably why Souvenir: The Singles 2004-2012 begins with their three most notable hits. Ultimately, it's a winning strategy, as Kaiser Chiefs have always been the kind of group that was going to be better off compiled, as their best stuff was always sandwiched between veritable loaves of filler, but front-loading the collection with the cream of the crop makes wading through the rest of the playlist, despite some solid tracks and a brand-new song in "Listen to Your Head," a little laborious.

Great album

Souvenir- The Singles 2004-2012

Without a doubt the most distinctive and music changing band of their generation. How many anthemic tracks can one band produce...But the Kaisers have been doing it album after album since Employment hit the music scene 8 years ago! Cannot believe it is 8 years ago already. Timeless tracks, and a band that can enjoy the music they produce in a typically Northern way, and although their approach to music is deadly serious and their songs contain very strong and personal messages, they are not a band whom take themselves too seriously, and have never dissappeared up themselves! ... "Loves Not A Competition" was not their biggest hit, but is a very haunting and catchy melodic 3 minutes of music.

"Ruby" is their biggest selling hit and will probably always be their most popular hit, but there are so many memorable pieces on "Souvenir", with my personal favourite being "The Angry Mob", a very astute song in light of the dawn of the "phone hacking scandal" era, and the rise of Social Networking sites on a global scale.

It is hard not to love this album and revel at the simplicity of the genius of the Kaisers, in years to come they will be credited with changing modern music, and in the current era where they maybe dont sell as much, they will be known as one of the last massive sellers of the physical album product!

Specializing in a muscular and melodic blend of classic Brit-pop, post-punk, and new wave, the Kaiser Chiefs' blue-collar, pub-style take on indie rock managed to split the difference between timely and nostalgic. Comprised of vocalist Ricky Wilson, guitarist Andrew White, bassist Simon Rix, keyboardist Nick Baines, and drummer Nick Hodgson, Kaiser Chiefs resurrected the mod spirit of the Jam in "I Predict a Riot," a supercharged class-of-1977 power pop single that quickly electrified the British...
