[Two and a half stars] West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum RCA/Sony Music


This big-at-home UK band – which has cheekily avowed its own genius and been nominated for a Mercury Prize – calls its third -album a ‘soundtrack to an imaginary movie.’ With help from producer Dan the Automator, Kasabian cook up electro-tinged fuzz rock, druggy club music and tricked-out Brit pop. After being impressed by details such as the Middle Eastern violin on ‘Take Aim,’ you’ll wonder where the tunes are: Sergio Pizzorno’s simplistic melodies render the acid-drenched opener, ‘Underdog,’ underwhelming and make the string-swept, uptempo ‘Where Did All the Love Go’ sound like blurrier Blur.
