The Kooks: Inside Out

I’ve only just got around to getting this album, so this review is based solely on my first impressions which means that by the time you read the list it may have moved up my chart or possibly off it altogether. The album starts off gently with the short and mellow “Seaside” before moving into the more powerful “See the World”. “Sofa Song” is a great track consisting of high Speed acoustic guitars and cranked up vocals. The rest of the album is in a pretty similar vein sounding a bit like Coldplay in a hurry. For some strange reason I found myself drawn towards track 12, “Jackie Big Tits”. Unfortunately I was more inspired by the title than the content.
