Album: Kaiser Chiefs, The Future is Medieval (Fiction)

With their fourth effort, Kaiser Chiefs are pioneering the music industry's latest attempt to revive the CD as a physical product: from a longlist of 20 songs on their website, you can choose your own tracklist and pick your own artwork.

If you can't be bothered with all that, the "official" version is also available from tomorrow. Gimmicks aside, any version of TFIM with a core of "Little Shocks", "Start with Nothing", "When all is Quiet", "Man on Mars" and "Heard it Break" won't go far wrong.
