Ten years ago: The Kooks Inside In Inside Out

Ten years ago today, The Kooks released Inside In Inside Out. It is such a solid album that is still among my favourites when the songs come up on my iPod. The Kooks' début shows them to be a highly accomplished group of musicians with an original yet infectious sense of song. There are influences from generations of guitar rock and pop mixed with danceable beats and delivery with just the right mix of ragged and polished.

Here are my favourite tunes from The Kooks' Inside In Inside Out:


"See The World"

"Sofa Song"

"Eddie's Gun"

"Ooh La"

"You Don't Love Me"

"She Moves In Her Own Way"



And Lily Allen's cover

"If Only"
