Astounded that any Kasabian album is in the top 10 for a year on BEA, but this is by far their best release.

Looking to discover great music from 2009 I naturally checked out this highly rated album from that year. And the verdict? It’s good! . Really good! . Of course I knew Underdog and Fire (who doesn’t ?) but the rest of the album blew me away with how awesome it is . I listened to it on a recent long drive and as soon as the final track finished I went back to track 1 and started again, I very rarely do that. In 2009 I somehow completely missed this album & I am so glad that 8 years later it’s on my radar. So do yourself a favour if you haven’t heard this album make sure you do.

I really like this album. It's their best. At first it seems like just cool rock music but then you hear the synth parts in the middle of most songs and you see what makes Kasabian Kasabian.
Best tracks: Underdog, Where did all the Love go?, Fire
Worst track: Swarfiga

As good as their self titled debut album in many of the songs, but their debut has that special place in my heart. I do love every song and think the album songs are as good as the singles.

Favourite songs are probably: Fast Fuse, Underdog and Where Did All The Love Go?

Starts out with a lot of energy that carries through the first four or so songs. The second half feels a little less organized but is mostly good nonetheless.

This album is really good, it starts with a bang with Underdog, WDATLG? and Fast Fuse, all fantastic songs. Take Aim, Thick as Thieves, Vlad the Impaler are all pretty good too, and of course Fire is the killer track.

Some weak tracks like West Ryder Silver Bullet and Secret Alphabets, but other than that, this album is very recommendable, nothing revolutionary (it's Kasabian, after all), but super enjoyable, which is what music is about after all

The first album listened from Kasabain is incredible, technically art work is awesome, lyrics are beautiful and really creative, this album really can be one of the bests of the decade, it´s just incredible, completely well maked, well writed, well composed, excellent

Best song: Thick As Thieves
Worst song: Swarfiga

Their usual lively swagger, maybe not as solid as earlier stuff but it's hard to hate.

can't decide whether tyis or their debut is the best album. Guess I'll just have to love them both equally.
