I think this is the best Kasabian album. The tones throughout the album are superb and everything comes together to create something that is fun to listen to.
Underdog,Where Did All The Love Go?,Fast Fuse,Vlad The Impaler,Fire,Happiness
Just some fun, catchy indie rock/ dance punk. With some of Kasabian most memorable songs. Yh, it is a very solid record and I thoroughly enjoy listening to it even if it may not be the best record ever you will enjoy it
