Review: Kasabian – ’48:13′

Posted on 19 Jun 2014 at 5:42am

Unlike the Incredible Hulk, everyone does like Kasabian when they are angry. Or filled with rage, or political fervency.

But what on earth would a Kasabian filled with joy sound like? Their latest album, ‘48:13‘, goes a long way to answering that question.

The answer is not merely all sweetness and light. This is not an album filled with cute bunny rabbits and hearts with arrows through. It is instead filled with passion and joy and, more than anything, this is as near as Kasabian have got to a ‘party’ album.

Over 10 full tracks (and 3 very small ‘interludes’) the band rediscover their love of electronic beats and rhythms. A love they displayed so wonderfully on their self-titled debut, but one which has faded with each album since. The sound is revitalised, its intensity returned. They no longer need to rely sheerly on the huge, angry and intimidating pyrotechnics of recent releases – there are no frighteningly explosive ‘Switchblade Smiles‘ or the usual laddish romps.
