Reason Is Treason
Pinch Roller (Interlude)
Few records have defibrillated multiple rock subgenres with quite as much style and verve as this debut from English rock heroes Kasabian. Led by primary songwriter Sergio Pizzorno and hyperactive frontman Tom Meighan, they breathe mega-chorused life into Baggy (“L.S.F.”), chugging Britpop (“Reason Is Treason”), rap-infused electronica (“Cutt Off”), and more. Big, strange, and served with bags of swagger, Kasabian delivers revivalism with a dash of freshness and stadium-ready melodies that are begging to be bellowed.
