Harsh? post 1
comment by greasycaesar    Mar 15, 2007
This is a harsh review but as an owner of this album, I would have to say there is some truth in it.

It's quite good, but actually really quite boring. Nothing tops "Ruby", a single I really love unfortunately backed up by a somewhat shameful album; and I never complain. There are god songs on here, just not many.

Not heard the album. Have no intention of ever hearing the album. Irritating. Inane. Sh*te.

I really liked the first album, and went to see them live which was great. However, if Ruby is the best song on the new album I think I'll give it a miss, as I didn't enjoy it at all.

As many others, I'm fond of the first album, but not satisfied with the second. They had a good mix on "Employment", they found a good formula (those little stupid keyboard-melodies are just great and the lyrics were enjoyable). Clearly, they wanted "Angry Mob" to get successful (and maybe it will), so they decided to go on in the same manner, not changing anything (less stupid keyboard-melodies, maybe)...
An uninteresting album is the result.

kaisers post 7
comment by superirons93    Apr 2, 2008
are you all mad?
this is a great album and yes, it has less obvious hits than employment but it's far more consistent. and yes, ruby is the best song on it but that doesn't matter because ruby is a classic anthem.
the kaisers are arguably britain's best live band (either them or muse) and that brilliance DOES translate into TWO good albums.
so there
