Album Review

While Kasabian kick against the p***ks, their audience dances. The band raises a fist, the fans shake a tail feather, but even if they're a Happy Mondays without a current cultural need for a Happy Mondays, the grooving and groovy 48:13 is a great reason to pretend. Named after its total runtime, the album is a lean, mean machine of singalong revolution songs and baggy jeans dance music from folks old enough to be wearing fitted by now, but the hunger to survive and flourish is as palpable as it was on their debut. Maybe it's the loss of fifth member and rhythm guitarist Jay Mehler, but whatever the reason, Kasabian continue to challenge themselves and toss off the big beat sound of 2011's Velociraptor! with returning producer Sergio Pizzorno keeping things tight and upfront. As such, the uptempo strut of "Doomsday" makes a short journey out the speakers, grabs the listener's hand, and heads for the rock-rave dancefloor, while the bass-dropping "Eez-eh" is well aware of EDM's big bottom, even if the sequencer and the spirit all point backwards toward acid house. In 2014, that's rebel music for mums, but if the song's "Everyday Is brutal, now we're all being watched by Google" isn't a middle-class revolt, it's at least middle-class awareness and the out-of-time, out-of-place, full-of-spirit Kasabian play to their strengths, as always.

Customer Reviews

Better in whole context

This album is greater than the sum of its parts. In isolation, bumblebee and eez-eh lack the appeal they do when listened in their place of the album. For the life of me I cannot understand why they did not release Clouds, Stevie, or Treat first. Stevie and clouds in particular will live on well after the dust settles, similar to Fire, Club Foot, or Shoot the Runner, amongst others. On the balance, a strong album, but I could do without the quasi-rap in Mortis. This is the one true exception to the album - it could be easilly excessed without impacting the album. Overall, being a biased listener, a really solid album for fans. Four stars since it lacks the perfection of a couple of their previous albums. I do agree with an earlier post that in some ways it does harken back to earlier sound.

Umm...

..the above album review from iTunes makes little sense. It reads as if someone’s senile grandfather was given thirty seconds of rambling time. Anywho, I heard the album and its better than the last couple albums, still nowhere near as good as their debut. Sadly I don’t think Kasabian will ever top that first monumental album. Still worth a listen though.

Love it!

This album has very good flow from beginning to end. Serge is an absolute mastermind and this album is a great demonstration of how his creativity has grown since their debut album, Kasabian, 10 years ago. I've followed their albums throughout the last decade and they never fail to impress. They always have an updated new sound to each album, but also never stray too far from their Kasabian style beats. I also think that this album has the most in common with their first album. A+++++++ boys!!
