Kooks - Konk Konk
Pop New - LP 5099951937515 Virgin
Factory Sealed, Long Out Of Print 2008 Import Housed In A Gatefold Cover. Start Of A Top Seam Crack. “The Kooks' Debut Album, Inside In/Inside Out, Was A Sleeper Success Story, Going On To Sell A Whopping Two Million Copies. It Was A Fabulous Set, But Their Follow-Up, Konk, Wipes The Floor With It. The Title Takes Its Name From Ray Davies' Studio, Where The Quartet Recorded Most Of The Set. This Direct Connection To Britain's Past Obviously Inspired The Band To New Heights, Because The Kooks And This Album Are Positively Electrifying. Across A Dozen Songs, The Quartet Explores Pop And Rock In All Their Glory, With Every Number Set Apart From Its Neighbor In Sound And Feel. Singer And Rhythm Guitarist Luke Pritchard Is On Fire Throughout. His Performances Are Magnificent, But Even So, Konk Belongs To Lead Guitarist Hugh Harris, Who Swaggers Like An Epic Hero Right Across This Set. He Struts Out Like Achilles Onto The Plains Of Troy On The Infectious '60s Pop/Rocking Album-Opener, "See The Sun." His Leads Are Absolutely Incendiary On "Do You Wanna" While Adding Subtle Shades Of Color To The Crash-And-Bash "Always Where I Need To Be," And They're Positively Joyous On The Bright, Bouncy Beatlesque "Mr. Maker" And Utterly Irrepressible On The Pop/Rock Perfection Of "Down To The Market." Harris' Show-Stopper, Though, Is "Shine On," A Midtempo '60s-Tinged Number That Pushes The Band Into New Territory, And Pritchard To New Heights. The Album Sounds Phenomenal, With Producer Tony Hoffer Giving The Entire Set A Warm Glow That Heightens The Band's Retro Elements. That Glow Turns Luminous On "One Last Time," An Acoustic-Styled Ballad With All The Majesty Of Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)," And Burns Just As Brightly On The Sway-Along "Stormy Weather." Everything About This Album Shouts Masterpiece, A Set That Will Thrill Listeners For Years, Nay Decades, To Come.” Jo-Ann Greene, AMG.... more details
