Description

Couple of good tracks on there that would feature well on other Kasabian albums, but it’s just not the same without Tom.

And that presence is needed when you’re delivering lyrics such as: “Jet packs / Life in a simulator / Drip feed / Straight to the incubator. Smith (who’s worked with Stormzy and shared knob-twiddling duties with Pizzorno), but there’s darkness there too. Reviewing the album for The Guardian, Michael Hann felt that the album "goes for broke" and "teems with ideas that don't always land", and despite Pizzorno's "imagination elevat[ing] them above their lad-rock leanings", as a vocalist he is "adequate but unremarkable". It’s the kind of thing you might more readily expect to hear on the Calm app than on the new one from the tub-thumping lad-rockers who barreled in with the rifftastic ‘Club Foot’ back in 2004.It is Kasabian's first album in five years, following For Crying Out Loud (2017), and first to feature Serge Pizzorno as a sole lead vocalist after former frontman Tom Meighan was fired in 2020 amid his domestic assault conviction. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The seventh Kasabian album nods in those directions without stepping conclusively towards them, and offers up some of the bullish, uptempo rock that sets moshpits roiling. The Alchemist's Euphoria received a score of 74 out of 100 from nine critics' reviews on review aggregator Metacritic, indicating "generally favorable" reception. Pero tras cuatro o cinco escuchas solamente puedo decir que me parece un álbum muy interesante y con algunas canciones sobresalientes.

Of the new album, Kasabian’s seventh, Serge comments: “One thing about this record I feel over the other ones, is it definitely feels like a body of work that belongs together. In 2020, the day after his departure from Kasabian was announced, he was convicted of assaulting his partner, and in due course Pizzorno decided he was going to take centre stage. On digital services, "Alygatyr" is only 3:23 due to the single version being supplied instead of the album version. The group’s resulting seventh album, ‘The Alchemist’s Euphoria’, is a whipsmart collection that pings from classic Kasabian piss-up chant-alongs (scything lead single ‘ALYGATYR’; the tellingly titled ‘ROCKET FUEL’) to starry eyed ballads – with, perhaps surprisingly, the emphasis on the latter. Como siempre he abrazado y amado la vertiente electrónica y psicodélica del grupo no he tenido "problemas de digestión" con el estilo del disco, que es algo totalmente subjetivo.Kasabian have always been about having a good fucking time, and although this is understandably their most introspective record yet, it does point to euphoria ahead. Later, on the marching ‘STRICTLY OLD SKOOL’, Serge champions those outside-the-box thinkers who can’t be contained by other people’s expectations: “You’re Dr. Smyth described the album as "punchy", writing that "Scriptvre" has "crunching breakbeats and snarling guitars" and "Rocket Fuel" is "a bit silly really, with its mix of rave synths and chanted vocals". The Alchemist's Euphoria is the seventh studio album by British band Kasabian, released on 12 August 2022 through Sony Music.

The songs that feel more conventional – Strictly Old Skool, for example – come as something of a relief as a result.Hann found The Alchemist's Euphoria "offers up some of the bullish, uptempo rock that sets moshpits roiling.

Produced by Serge Pizzorno and Fraser T Smith, mixed by Spike Stent and written by Serge, ‘Scriptvre’ is one of the many standout tracks on their eagerly anticipated new album The Alchemist’s Euphoria on Columbia Records. Serge, always the chin-stroking auteur to Meighan’s endorphin-inducing rabble-rouser, had to – as he puts it on this album’s ravey ‘SCRVPTURE’ – “reach for the mic as I walk from the shadow”. Now, bands can thrive when a replacement singer comes from within the ranks: Pink Floyd and Genesis seemed to do OK for themselves after the loss of Syd Barrett and Peter Gabriel respectively. Meighan, on the other hand, provided the visceral connection with their fanbase – the simian frontman in the Liam Gallagher mould, the embodiment of the audience’s aspirations.Kasabian’s future seemed very much in doubt without their former frontman to sell the band’s unique brand of psychedelic party anthems.
