Kasabian - West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum


The Leicester band's third album was the first without former guitarist and writer Chris Karloff and has been seen by many as their strongest effort yet. Recorded with help from Gorillaz producer Dan the Automator and described by the band as "a soundtrack to an imaginary movie", it's already topped the UK album charts.
