Exclusive limited French two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) pressing includes three live tracks recorded during the French Festival "Transmusicales- Rennes" (in December 2006). These performances were not issued in the US CD/DVD version. Few in British Indie Pop have the charisma of Kaiser Chiefs' singer Ricky Wilson. The leader of this precocious quintet from Leeds, Wilson said as a youngster that he would not go to the Glastonbury Festival until he was on stage. Wilson led his band to the main stage two years ago on the back of their triumphant debut Employment, which shifted almost three million copies. So, to the notoriously difficult second album. That the band's influences (Madness, Blur, Pulp, the Smiths) are still transparent is not a bad thing. The first single 'Ruby' and the likely hit 'Thank You Very Much' are evidence. Yet it's 'Everything Is Average Nowadays' that is the album highlight. Wilson's descriptive, introspective lyrics with a social conscience come to the fore. Kaiser Chiefs dodge the "second album syndrome" bullet! Universal. 2007.

SCORE. Great power pop with a strong punky underpinning, but these guys get it -- they can PLAY and write good tunes. They teeter a little dangerously close to becoming too political for me, but they keep it generic enough so as not to spoil a good party!
