Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE KOOKS

Konk

2008-05-12

This is the second album from this Brighton, UK foursome. Part of it was recorded at Ray Davies' Konk Studios, thus the album title. It has a nice British rock sound, similar to the Libertines. The best song is probably the second track, "Always Where I Need To Be", with its hand-claps and catchy do, do, do refrain. The fourth track, "Do You Wanna" won't win any writing awards for the lyrics, but it has some nice guitar riffs and sounds darn good. Both tracks five and ten sport some nice rhythm guitar and have a good groove to them. There is a hidden 13th track which is an acoustic number as is track 12. If you play track 12, be aware that it is a 4:25 min. song that actually ends at 3:25 and then has dead air. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth
