Kaiser Chiefs

Album Title: Employment
Release Date: March 15, 2005
Genre: Rock
Take a base foundation of the Clash (it could really be any stripped down rock band, but since lead singer Ricky Wilson has a tendency to sound like Mighty Joe, The Clash works as good as any), add some New Wave synths courtesy of "Heart of Glass", and you're somewhere in the neighbourhood of The Kaiser Chiefs' sound - and it ain't half bad. Taking a stance somewhere between the early '00s garage-rock fetish and the '80s revival movement-of-the-moment, Leeds' Kaiser Chiefs have produced a rip-roaring good time for all - indie kid to hip soccer mom. Just like the catchy lead off single "I Predict A Riot", the entire album is instantly singable, especially when the large amount of "na na na" runs are factored in for people who have a hard time with real words (there's even a song named "Na Na Na Na Naa"!). Attention has been placed squarely on Bloc Party to win the most-popular-British-band-in-America race, but with their beauteous hooks and insane energy, Kaiser Chiefs may just pull through for a surprise finish.
