Great follow up album. I've heard all of the songs and I can't say there is a song that I dislike. Great when you are driving and the sun is shining...

Yes, pretty good. I wouldn't say it compares with their first album, Inside in/Inside Out.
But still about 4 very decent songs.

Seriously, i absolutely adore this album. To be honest i prefer this to inside in/inside out! Gap has some of the best parts i have ever heard in a song, with every other song being so catchy as to take turns to be stuck in my head since i bought it. A few of the lyrics are a ...bit off, but thats only a minor gripe :D. Everyone who enjoyed the expressiveness of the first album (as this one is slightly lighter in my opinion) has to buy this! Along with everyone else for that matter.

Brill Follow Up Album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 14/08/2008 19:32:27
a lot of people have said this album is not as good as the frist, which is true, but when a band produce such a classic first album, producing a second, just as good album must be hard but i think they have done a great job as this is a great follow up album, good job lads

This is another good album produced by the Kooks. However it did not live up to the first album; every song on the first album was a classic.
Good but not as good as Inside In Inside Out.

Puzzled by offical reviews

I think this is a really really good album. Ok its not up to inside in inside out but that was an exceptional album.
There are a lot of catchy tunes but the only thing that lets it down are the lyrics 'wasnt it you who said life is like a plastic cup'...
Looking past this it is a really good come back from the Kooks and i cant understand why there are such bad reviews coming from NME and such.

Nice summer album

OK, critics will say this is another very regional accent sounding album, one of many artists like that at the moment (artic monkeys, reverand and the makers etc.) but saying that, this is a very good album for me. Nice easy listening, catchy without being nasty pop music. Dont expect anything too deep, but good iPod music, especially when the sun shines. Follows on nicely from the last album. It's on my playlist!

Konk, not the kooks best album ever really! I was rather disapointed when i was listening to their new album as there were only two good songs, Shine on and Always where i need to be.
Average album 5/10

Complete Let Down..
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/07/2008 13:59:30
I bought this album expecting it to be great after their excellent first album but found myself disapointed. Most of the tracks are extremely similar with only a few stand out tracks, it seems to have lost the originality that the first album has, just buy their first album and forget about this one, its so terrible its actually put me off them.

This is a tremendous album, the only criticism was it was released too early in the year as it deserves to be played in blazing hot sunshine in the middle of the summer, with a cold beer in hand and a barbecue on the go!
Mr Maker is an absolute classic, as is Love It All. Two standout tracks beyond doubt. See The Sun and Stormy Weather are not far behind.
My only criticism of the Kooks is that they are obviously in thrall to their record company execs, because (carrying on a trend from their debut) they always choose some really bad singles!!! Shine On and Do You Wanna are examples of this - average dross that would never capture the floating voter.
But hey who cares, if pop genius is about moments/one off tunes, then once again, the Kooks have more than delivered. No danger of this lot 'konking' out anytime soon......
