Biography

Biography by Andrew Leahey
Initially embraced as "the Southern Strokes" for their resurrection and reinvention of Dixie-styled rock & roll, Kings of Leon steadily morphed themselves into an experimental rock outfit during the 2000s. The Tennessee-bred quartet debuted in 2003 with the Holy Roller Novocaine EP, whose blend of raw, unpolished boogie rock was further explored on ... Read more in Amazon's Kings of Leon Store

Mechanical Bull is the sixth studio album from Kings of Leon.

It's been about ten years since the Followill's showed up here in the UK. I distinctly remember the freshness and vitality of 'Red Morning Light' and 'Molly's Chambers' from their debut Youth And Young Manhood performed so authentically on Later with Jools Holland.

Bassist Jared (the one who had a pigeon drop one in his mouth during a show in St Louis) seems to think that the music of this album is some of their most complex yet but also has a youthful zest comparable to their first two albums. Of course, he would say that. Because enough has already been made of how the band have detoured down the stadium rock back route at the expense of musical originality.

On first listens, Mechanical Bull is perhaps a better description of albums four and five - and stands as one of the more intriguing of their more recent work. But ultimately it remains more in line with a low-risk formula that has haunted the band since the success of 'Sex on Fire'. It's a step in the right direction and the aptly titled 'Comeback Story' shines a glimmer of hope that the band are rediscovering their original delight ('Family Tree' will get the crowds chanting too), but there are too many ineffective tracks in the middle that leave it still short from what they should be achieving.

So much better than Come Around Sundown but I am beginning to think we may have already seen their best.

after one listen i thought ,yes a good kings of leon album , i then put it on in my van and listened to it on the way to work and on the way home ,by the 3rd time i realised what a fantastic album it is with some good tracks and some pure classics , the base line on "family tree " is amazing . i would recommend any person buying this album will be totally hooked as i was by the 3rd listen . Enjoy .....

By the fifth album, It would be conceivable to believe that Kings of Leon might be getting tired, not so. The first half of the album seems to hark back to their earlier albums, whereas the second half of the album seems to be closer to that of the previous two. I would recommend the bonus edition for the three bonus tracks as they really do add to it. It looks like the lads from Talihina Sky have plenty more steam left in the engine.

The Kings of Leon have crafted one of the most distinctive and recognisable rock sounds of today. All fans of the band will enjoy this album as it continues in the vain of previous work. It's not an outstanding album and not as good as previous releases but still a worthy addition to your music collection.

I have only recently started listening to Kings of Leon. They are so talented and the sounds they make are amazing. Caleb's strong husky voice is compelling and the instruments dynamic. This album will not disappoint fans. Anyone who needs a boost of life giving energy listen to Mechanical Bull. I love it.
