Kaiser Chiefs – Employment (2005)
The Kaiser Chief’s debut studio album, released in March 2005 on B-Unique Records. Employment takes its inspirations from the Britpop and new wave movements, 1970s-era punk rock and Beach Boys-esque West Coast music.
The album originally charted at number three in the UK Albums Chart on 13 March 2005, but charted at number two almost a year after its release, due to the band’s success at the Brit Awards. Employment went on to become the fourth best-selling album in the United Kingdom that year
