About this deal

Como siempre he abrazado y amado la vertiente electrónica y psicodélica del grupo no he tenido "problemas de digestión" con el estilo del disco, que es algo totalmente subjetivo. Kasabian’s future seemed very much in doubt without their former frontman to sell the band’s unique brand of psychedelic party anthems. If this feels like a lot of complaints, at least it’s because Pizzorno offers up so many things that it is very easy to find bits that don’t work. Now, bands can thrive when a replacement singer comes from within the ranks: Pink Floyd and Genesis seemed to do OK for themselves after the loss of Syd Barrett and Peter Gabriel respectively.

Rocket Fuel rolls in like the Prodigy, Pizzorno declaiming over a Middle Eastern-style riff, with a bassy thud that hits in the chest, resolving into a soaring refrain.

Folky acoustic jig ‘Letting Go’ twinkles with the magic dust we’ve come to expect from co-producer Fraser T. They require some sort of attitude to transcend their meaninglessness, and Pizzorno can only really reach that when he’s rapping (on Scriptvre and Rocket Fuel, notably). Da spart sich die Record Company tatsächlich noch das letzte Gramm Papier weg – bestimmt aus Nachhaltigkeitsgründen. Para los amantes de la parte más guitarresca y/o a los que tengan menos ganas de abrir su mente, puede ser un disco generador de displicencia.

And that presence is needed when you’re delivering lyrics such as: “Jet packs / Life in a simulator / Drip feed / Straight to the incubator. Of the new album, Kasabian’s seventh, he adds: “One thing about this record I feel over the other ones, is it definitely feels like a body of work that belongs together.Produced by Serge Pizzorno and Fraser T Smith, mixed by Spike Stent and written by Serge, ‘Scriptvre’ is one of the many standout tracks on their eagerly anticipated new album The Alchemist’s Euphoria on Columbia Records.
