Guitarist and primary songwriter Serge Pizzorno has described Kasabian’s album as more “simple” than their previous work. It’s hard to imagine a pleasure more simple than ‘Club Foot’, a 2004 student union anthem that centred around the word “Ooosh!” being chanted over and over, or a set of songs less lyrically complex than 2014 single ‘Eez-eh’ (“Everyone’s on bugle /Now we’re being watched by Google”).

Yet ‘For Crying Out Loud’ is chockablock with massive tunes that make an instant impact. Pizzorno wrote the whole thing in just six weeks, in a bid to imbue the album with a sense of urgency. And it’s taken him to the songwriters’ Holy Grail: insistent new melodies that already sound weirdly familiar. See romantic banger ‘Wasted’ (“Summer is here once again… But you won’t catch me in my shorts”) and the glorious disco stomp of ‘Are You Looking For Action?’. These songs are the sound of joy, canned and compressed for your aural pleasure.
