The ten-track collection was written in London, Los Angeles and Nashville, recorded at The Maze Studio in Atlanta, Georgia and mixed at Electric Lady Studios by Michael Brauer (My Morning Jacket, Coldplay) with producer Ben H. Allen III (Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, Deerhunter).The record shows an evolution in maturity of songwriting and sound, and deftly executes a wide array of the bands influences.

There is a genuine reason why this album is top of the UK charts.

I have followed the Kaiser Chiefs since 2005 and their release of Employment. Until now I have been disappointed with their follow up albums but this one hits it out of the park. Very rarely do I listen to an album from start to finish and want to listen to it over and over again and this one fits that category. I can't even pick a favorite yet. The Kaiser Chiefs stay true to form with their social commentary of life in England in catchy songs alternative rock that is enjoyable as it is uncomfortable in the observations put to song. Do yourself a favor and buy this album and listen to it. Listen to the music, listen to the lyrics, and understand the beauty in the grittiness.

This is a must for any alternative rock music collection.

Once again, the Kaiser Chiefs would release another great masterpiece when
they impressed the music world in 2014 with this highly successful CD that blend
the elements of social media, activism, optimism, protest and bright outcomes as
this evocative artistic formula made this one a true bonafide success. Education,
Education, Education & War is a challenging testament that boldly confronts and
looks at the outside world that took place at time, as the band from Leeds makes
their vitality-driven return to their social and political rebelliousness which they up
the ante on this piece de resistance with its array of fresh ideas, sonic shout-outs
and slick musings. Beginning with the opening track The Factory Gates, the high
pitched track set concludes with stunning force on other noted songs like Coming
Home, Misery Company, Ruffians On Parade, Meanwhile Up In Heaven, My Life,
Bows And Arrows, the thought-provoking classic Cannons, Roses and the bonus
hit Song For Stephane as they keep the optimism up to date with the fun and the
frivolous rapport they gave to the uproarious tracks. With the music co-written by
Fraser T. Smith (who wrote songs for Adele and Sam Smith) and the band mem-
bers, Education, Education, Education & War embraces the fierce originality and
vigor that briefly addresses the concept of facing some of the important issues at
the time of the CD’s release that give it the high energy listening experience that
is worth a good honest listen. With Vijay Mistry as their new drummer, their lead
singer Ricky Wilson heads the band with power and integrity that even make this
labour of love one of the most politically-charged and outspoken albums to come
out of the 2010’s. Just take a clear listen and you will really learn the difference.
Note: make sure you rip both Song For Stephane and Nerve on I-Tunes.

I have been listening to the Kaiser Chiefs since their debut "Employment" in 2005. They're sort of a replacement for Blur who went missing in action after 2003. They also have elements of Oasis as well. They are Britpop at its finest. Sharp lyrics and melodic songcraft--something very much missing from American artists these days.

Not entirely certain about the 'theme' of the album, but when you open the lyric booklet you see that each song is given a year starting with "The Factory Gates" in 1921. There appears to be references to work, technology, government, war, education, love, relationships. Again, the band doesn't explain just how these songs are supposed to connect to one another, and they are also out of chronological order on the album. Still, it's a good album, but.....but it seems to me that their last album, and now this album are just missing something. Both feel incomplete somehow.

Wisely, the band keeps this album pared down to ten tracks, but not all of them stick with you. I like the first single, "Coming Home" and "Misery Company" the best of all the songs here. "The Factory Gates" and " Ruffians On Parade" were also decent. Outside of those, though, it's a tough call. I thought "Cannons" was interesting with the poetry reading by actor Bill Nighy. That was unusual, something different, something new, so I give the band kudos for that one. It just seems that "Meanwhile Up In Heaven", "One More Last Song", "My Life", "Bows & Arrows" and "Roses" didn't really do anything for me after multiple listens this week.

This most recent Kaiser Chiefs album is definitely great. It's perhaps a bit more pop sounding than their previous efforts, but it's still brilliant and keeping with their style. One standout is Cannons, featuring Bill Nighy. It's a bit of a departure from the rest of the album, but it's a great song. I purchased this album on vinyl. It has amazing sound quality and I appreciate that I can still receive the mp3s to play the album on my computer and ipod. I'm sure these songs will translate brilliantly live, especially as Kaiser Chiefs put on a terrific live show.

If you miss the rebel sound of their amazing debut.. then you'll love this. The last two cds were a bit experimental and musical direction was all over the mixing board. Their wasn't much cohesiveness to the sound. On their latest release, they're lyrically back on fire. It's still a departure from their debut but now it has a nice mature evolving sound. One or two tracks sound like classic Kaiser Chiefs but the feel in general is more alternative. There is even some balladry mixed in... It's a rocking cd especially for genuine fans, not just the ones that love the single "I predict a riot". Some songs take a few listens but after a bit ..you'll be hooked!
