Reseña de álbum

Most Kasabian albums are bloated pieces of work, having been created by some of the most self-assured, loudmouthed rockers since the Gallagher brothers. West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum is more demented than outsized, however, replacing the ego rock of Empire with a barmy blend of electronics, acoustics, horror movie ambience, and industrial psychedelia. Producer Dan the Automator adds touches of hip-hop to the mix, too, highlighting the band's rhythmic base by stripping back the layers of guitar and synth samples. The result is an interesting, unexpected piece of work, devoid of a militantly commercial single like Empire's self-titled track, and lacking the shaggy Madchester vibes that Christopher Karloff brought to 2004's Kasabian. If the band's eponymous debut was the soundtrack to a drug-filled night in England's trendiest club, then West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum is the soundtrack to the subsequent walk home, when the club has kicked out its last patrons and the streets are dark and forbidding. There's enough psychedelia here to partially thwart the shadowy electronics — for every "Vlad the Impaler," there's a trippy counterpart like "Secret Alphabets" — and Kasabian often augments the new approach with old habits, like the dance-rock chorus that bisects the anxious, minimalist shuffle of "Fire." Most of West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum canvasses unfamiliar territory, however, a wise move for a group has routinely struggled to escape the shadow of its influences.

This is how to rock

While rock is pretty much dead in the U.S. with bubblegum bands like My Chemical Romance and All American Rejects infecting the airwaves, in Britain rock is doing better than ever. Even decent American rock bands, like Kings of Leon do better in England. Kasabian may not be all that popular in the U.S., but they had pulled out two solid albums before this one and both have been megahits. However this one is closer to their debut, which was catchier and more electronic than Empire. Possibly the best rock album in 2009 aside from Franz Ferdinand's "Tonight". If you're into 00s British rock check also Bloc Party, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys, The Fratellis, Hard-Fi, and perhaps the best rock band in the world today: Muse.

"Asylum" Is Their Best Yet

I've been awaiting this album since I first heard "Kasabian," their first album, a few years ago and even more so with the (mostly) disappointment of "Empire." It wasn't that the second album failed, but that it left me unsatisfied, wanting more, with only giving a few great tracks ("Empire," "Shoot The Runner"). This album is quite different. It flows better and sets a better mood than any of Kasabian's albums. "West Ryder" presents more varried Kasabian with tracks spanning from the beautiful acoustics of "Thick As Thieves" to the incessant rave "Vlad the Impaler" culminating in the nicely mixed "Take Aim," which is one of the best tracks of this album. Kasabian has out done itself: they have created a coherent album with well played guitar and soft, strong lyrics. Their maturity as a band is evideniced in their ability to compile such a well varried album. Congrats from America, Kasabian, please come visit New Orleans sometime.

Awesome Production

Not only am I, now a fan of Kasabian, but the solid , brilliant production laid down by Dan the Automator is supurb! I highly recommend this album.

Kasabian took the British press by storm in the early 2000s by mixing traces of the Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, and Primal Scream with Oasis-sized confidence and DJ Shadow-influenced electronics. Named after Linda Kasabian, Charles Manson's getaway driver turned state witness, the Leicester-based group also stole a page from the Band by moving into a remote farmhouse to brew its music. Communal life and a slew of shared influences produced an electronic, rock-oriented sound that harked back to the...
