'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' is, you know, a Kasabian album, which isn't a crime in and of itself. It was originally released in 2009 and saw a changing of hands in the song-writing department, as Christopher Karloff took the record as an opportunity to fuck off forever and left Sergio Pizzorno in charge of things. And so "Where Did All The Love Go?" happened.

This is a really interesting album. That isn't always a good thing, but in this case, it certainly is. I LOVE putting an album on, and not knowing where it's going from one song to the next, or even from the verse to the chorus of the same song. Only a very few albums have surprised me that way in the past decade or so. Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot comes to mind, but it wasn't as riddled with wonderfully infectious pop hooks as West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum is. I really want to see these guys live in a small club.
