Kasabian: Empire

Empire kicks off with the very bouncy title track, a sort of electronic rock in roll that really needs a hanger full of sweaty party goers on pogo sticks and a very powerful amplifier. “Shoot the Runner” continues the high octane vivacious tempo with an almost Spirit in Sky-ish riff underpinning the song. The best however, is saved to last with “Doberman”, which starts of delicately before building into a masterful cacophony of guitar, drum and bass and then from out of nowhere some sort of Spanish/Mexican style brass- Stirring stuff.
