This record should come with a case of Harp Lager and a picture of David Cameron to throw your empty cans at. Kaiser Chiefs' fifth album is full of frothingly pissed-off working-class British rock, with shades of glam, pub rock, the Jam's lefty-mod broadsides and Oasis at their most soccerhooligan-y. The wry Brit pop of Blair-era hits like "I Predict a Riot" has been displaced by dourness; that's what a few years of Tory rule will do. But the charging stomp of "Misery Company" and "Ruffians on Parade" will send you out of the bar and into the streets with a smile.
