LATEST: Kaiser Chiefs' frontman Ricky Wilson has hit back at Damon Albarn after the Blur frontman called their new album "empty".
Albarn compared the Kaiser Chiefs new album Yours Truly Angry Mob to Blur's much maligned record, 1995's The Great Escape.
Referring to the Ruby hitmakers release, he said, "The Kaiser Chiefs' new record sounds a bit like The Great Escape in that it sounds a bit empty. Sometimes records are like that if you try too hard to repeat your success."
However, Wilson has hit back at his former pop pal.
He says, "I don't give a s**t what Damon says. It's one man and his opinion.
"Of course we tried hard - it was our second album. He can say what he likes."
