Product Description

Kasabian ~ Kasabian

Amazon.com

There's nothing particularly original about Kasabian. The hirsute Leicester band swaggers like the Stone Roses, plays dance-rock like Primal Scream, and mouths off like Oasis. Singer Tom Meighan even once famously derided Strokes singer Julian Casablancas in an interview with the NME as a "posh f---ing skier." But these are also the things that make Kasabian's debut so endearing. It's an album that spills over with personality and confidence, delivering massive club anthems in the form of songs like "Processed Beats," "Cutt Off" and "L.S.F. (Lost Souls Forever)," where the band finds just the right balance between primitive riffs and space-age grooves. -- Aidin Vaziri

First off let me say that this band and album are excellent but the other glowing reviews should make that clear to you. I want to take this opportunity to warn everybody about the grossly unfair restrictions that BMG has put on this CD. I made the mistake of buying this CD and now I am screwed. I can only play it on a CD player. When I put this in my computer, it immediately crashed it so bad that it immediately rebooted and I'm running Windows XP. I know it was the CDs fault because when Windows booted back up and I ran the executable on the CD, it immediately crashed again. But that isn't the worst of it... like millions of others, I have stopped listening to CDs and prefer using an iPod or my computer for listening to MP3s. Well these ingrates have made the music on here completely incompatible with an iPod. I can't rip the music and the enclosed format is only in WMA format which isn't compatible with an Apple product. I am now refusing to ever buy another CD by BMG and will support it's artists by going to thier own websites and buying the digital version from them directly or find the music illegally on the internet and them tell all my friends about the band and then see them in concert, which will do them a lot more good than buying a CD that mainly serves to fatten the pockets of the record lable...
--------------------------------------------------
So if you wanna rip this CD you need to diable a driver that this CD will maliciously install on your computer without your consent. The driver is called sbcpHid and you can find in in the Device Manager by turning on "show hidden devices" adn "device by connection" in the "View" menu. Double click SbcpHid, click on the Driver tab, press the button labled "Stop" and click the drop down list and select "disabled". Reboot and then you should be able to rip the cd with anything software you like (I highly recomend Exact Audio Copy).

I can't even comment on the music on this CD--I'm sure that if it had been on a normally functioning CD, I would have loved it. But my experience has been brusquely hijacked by Sony's stunningly crude "copy protection" scheme, which insists that you "enjoy" the CD in an inescapably fullscreen (or absolutely invisible) application with--apart from a cheezy Windows Media plugin--two controls: "minimize" and "close".

I don't copy CDs. I don't rip them. I don't have an MP3 player. All I like to do is listen to the music I paid for, as a conscientious customer, at work, while I work. WinAmp's "windowshade" mode is perfect for this, allowing me to change tracks, adjust volume, etc., with minimal interruption of my flow, and its intelligent design is in stark contrast to the Neanderthal user interface Sony-BMG has seen fit to inconvenience us with. I refuse to believe that the mercenaries who designed and marketed this atrocity actually use it to listen to their own personal music collection. Foisting it on us is therefore a glaring crime of business ethics, and I feel like a chump for not having read the ultra-fine print on the back. But it won't happen again, I learned my lesson. But you don't have to learn the hard way: do NOT purchase this experiment in consumer debasement.

When an industry begins to see its paying customers as adversaries, we are surely witnessing its demise.

I have to agree with the reviewer who points out how annoying the MediaMax software is on this CD. But don't let it ruin your listening experience.

Here's a hint for those not in the know: hold down the shift key when you put the CD in and your computer will ignore the software install. Then you can listen to the music *you paid for* - and copy it to your hard drive uninterrupted.

As for Kasabian, they're a fun band that as others have pointed out, owe a lot to the Stone Roses, Primal Scream and New Order in places, too. Definitely worth a listen, even if it is all pretty derivative.

I've read some online reviews that slag on this album as being unoriginal or derivative of other bands. But I say Kasabian sounds better than 99.9% of the so-called "original" bands out there. And besides, you're kidding yourself if you think The Strokes or White Stripes are anything but derivative.

Kasabian is a welcome update of the late 80's/early 90's Madchester sound. The album is absolutely flawless from beginning to end, and I can say that about VERY few that I've heard or purchased in recent years. Trust me, I would never take the time to write a review unless I truly felt this way.

The critics can have their totally-esoteric-Icelandic-electro-atmospheric-flavor-of-the-week-BS. I'll take Kasabian any day.

The last few years has seen a retro revival in alternative music, from Franz Ferdinand and The Killers to The Strokes and the entire NY seen. It's been a breath of fresh air for a genre that desperately needed it.

Kasabian (named after one of the infamous Manson members) enter the game with a revival of the infamous 80's Manchester sound made famous by Inspiral Carpets & Happy Mondays with a dash of The Stone Roses thrown in for good measure.

However its not just style that Kasabian bring to the table, the songs are catchy, memorable and likely to make you move at some point in time.

Highlights are the 1st single, "Club Foot" as well as "Lost Souls Forever", "Processed Beats" & "Reason Is Treason".

Overall a very solid debut from top to bottom and early contender for debut record of the year.
