Album Info

  • Release Date: March 31, 2014
  • Label: Fiction
6 / 10 Lesser bands would have called it quits if they lost a founder member, even more so if he was the one who wrote all their songs, but Kaiser Chiefs have rallied admirably on fifth album 'Education, Education, Education & War’. Initially, things seem positive: the epic 'Misery Company' twins theatrical flourishes with rock muscle, while 'Cannons' boasts a chorus custom-built for Ricky Wilson’s energetic live singalongs. However, only the subdued, melodic 'Coming Home' steers away from the bluster and delivers something deeper. Overall there is a sense that this is the sound of a band brushing their hair and fixing their make-up, trying to convince the world they're OK while secretly crumbling on the inside.
