It takes all of 10 seconds into opening track III Ray (The King) to bring knees to the ground, and the energy doesn’t let up until the last note expires from your ears. Gone are 48:13’s interludes and back is the emphasis on psychedelic guitars. Kasabian’s presence has always felt large, and through new gospel highlights, subtly eerie moments and massive rock bellows, you can feel their electrifying aura in stereo. Tying listeners deer-style to the front of a crazy rock and roll-a-coaster, the English five-piece show no signs of stopping.
For Crying Out Loud is out April 28 on vinyl, limited edition deluxe CD and regular CD via Sony.
