Pop music throws up vast numbers of bands like the Kooks, who have a few years’ worth of hits then drift out of fashion because, in essence, they never really had more to offer than a decent tune and the right haircut. The Kooks have come out fighting though, completely re-evaluating and overhauling their sound and the result is an exuberant fourth album bristling with character.
Drowned in sound hingegen scheint ganz und gar nicht begeistert:
It is, quite possibly, the worst thing you’ll hear all year – my only retort to the imperative contained in that cocky title is 'don’t bother.'
