Kasabian, 'Velociraptor!' (Columbia/Sony)

Velociraptor!
Critical Mass
Release Date: September 27, 2011
Label: Columbia/Sony

by David Menconi

Kasabian's fourth full-length commences on a cinematic note: A gong sounds, followed by a minute or so of moody trumpet fanfare, at which point "Let's Roll Just Like We Used To" morphs into a bouncy little pop tune straight out of mid-'60s swinging London. That sets up an album that feels like 11 mini-movies, with producer Dan the Automator as auteur. The driving title track does nicely for the chase scene, followed by the chill-down exotica of "Acid Turkish Bath (Shelter From the Storm)," with "Goodbye Kiss" as the end-credits theme, of course. Roll 'em!
