Review #74: Kaiser Cheifs - The Future Is Medieval
Posted by Pancccake
For me,the Kaiser Chiefs epitomize the noughties. It was their young fresh sound that resounded out of my teenage earphones, egging me on to be pretty much what I wanted to be.
But now it's new times. I've grown up. They've grown up. And really, 'The Future Is Medieval' is exactly what they should have done, and more.
Okay, so it's no masterpiece, and there aren't any huge anthems lining the track listing, but what there is, is a new sound. Fresh, (Yes, we know 'Little Shocks' sounds like Maximo Park's 'Our Velocity', but we will give them the benefit of the doubt here. If they come out with a new song called 'Magazines From Cardboard Boxes' we will know something fishy is going on!) and a generally crisp piece of music. Track 2 'Things Change' pretty much sums up what the 'Kaiser Chiefs' have done, and done well at that. Another two albums of the same after this would be too much. So as long as they keep advancing, I will keep listening!
Best Tracks: 'Little Shocks', 'Starts With Nothing', 'Dead Or In Serious Trouble'.
