Track Of The Day: Kasabian - 'Treat'

So Kasabian's new album '48:13' made it to number one in the UK album chart yesterday. I'd say that I'm quite fair and neutral when it comes to reviewing a Kasabian record. I'm not one of those critics that are too blinded by their hatred of the band to give their music a fair hearing, and I'm not one of the deluded hype mongers who believe they're the saviours of rock n roll. 

Like a lot of people, I find their arrogance ludicrously silly, and their habit of talking absolute bollocks doesn't exactly make me like them any more. But it doesn't prevent me from enjoying some of their music. So that's why I'm currently reviewing the album. My verdict will appear over the next few days, but in the meantime here's my personal highlight of an album that proves to be a VERY mixed bag. In terms of style and quality. The hard breakbeat funk of progressive centrepiece 'Treat' is exactly as the title says, progressing into a hypnotic house groove, another example of how they can get it right by applying fantastic, imaginative instrumentation. One of their best...
