"For the most part, it feels like either overweening confidence or desire to snare rudderless Oasis fans has led to Kasabian attempting the sort of conventional guitar pop record that they've always so successfully avoided making."

"Neither the classic Pizzorno insists it is, nor the numbskull stadium rock cynics will presume it is. It sounds like a band still uncertain of exactly where they want to be, but determined to make the way there interesting."

"At over 50 minutes' long, 'Velociraptor!' is a big beast but by no means over-extended. And, like Kasabian's previous three albums, it carves out its own distinctively individual style... it is hard to ignore the brash confidence with which the band take another giant stride towards stadium dominance."
