Kula Shaker may play well - they have a powerful rush that makes you temporarily forget how classicist their music actually is - but they still have trouble coming up with hooks. About half the record ("Hey Dude," "Tattva," "Govinda," "Grateful When You're Dead") has strong melodies, while the rest just rides by on the band's instrumental skills. Consequently, much of K doesn't stick around once the record is finished, but the singles remain excellent blasts of colorful neo-psychedelia.
The following is a comprehensive discography of Kula Shaker, an English psychedelic rock band formed in 1995.
