Well worth a listen. The more you listen, it grows and grows on you. Less chart, more rock, country and hillbilly.

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.

LOVE this album. Nothing much else to say, just a great album with some songs going back to their roots, sounding more like their first album.

A must for any Kings of Leon fan, by far their best album to date! Sadly though, the case (which is cardboard) had an enormous crease down the front. Normally I wouldn't mind, but it was a xmas present for my husband, who asked (jokingly) if I'd picked it up from a pre-loved dealer. Poor show there Amazon, a bit of a disappointment, hence the 4 star rating

The album has been out for the best part of two months, and we can now agree the dust has settled. The initial hype has died down - as have the usual criticisms that the band have sold themselves out - and I feel we can now subjectively look at what is, in truth, a very good album from Kings of Leon.

The album opens with a traditional KoL radio-friendly stomper - "Supersoaker". It is essentially a hyped-up rewrite of Radioactive, the lead single from the previous album, but it's poppy demeanour and fun-sounding energy mean it could quite happily slot anywhere amongst the band's material from 'Because Of The Times', which remains one of their most-loved records. It's definitely a stadium-designed song, and the sing-along chorus will ensure it asserts itself as a fans favourite in very little time.

It's a strong opener which then slips into track two: "Rock City", a bluesy number that echoes of the band's earlier work. Following this is one of the album's definite highlights: "Don't Matter". Distinctly heavier than the vast majority of the band's previous work, this is an absolute stomper that will get the crowds going. It's an eloquent mix of Sex Pistols-meet-Queens of the Stone Age punk, and it boasts some of the best guitar work we've had the pleasure of hearing from the talented Matthew Followill. Caleb, the lead singer, sounds absolutely evil in this song. It ranks amongst the band's most enjoyable songs yet.

"Beautiful War" follows; a song which is arguably the best of the lot as far as KoL are concerned.

Disappointing. I think this is going to be my last Kings Of Leon purchase, unless I hear something from them that changes my mind. This album is a very tame, unexciting version of the band, almost like a modern-day Eagles. In fact, I almost feel as if I'm insulting the spirit of The Eagles by making the comparison, but the soft-rock/country feel of this album really warrants the comparison. Believe me, I don't enjoy criticising a band I really like, I've been a fan of the Kings Of Leon since the very first album and have very much enjoyed much of their output, especially their first three releases, but "Mechanical Bull", despite the rather macho title is a damp squib. I've given this a few listens and, although it's fairly decent, there aren't the riffs, the leftfield arrangements or the sheer adrenaline rush present here that made their earlier material so vital.

There are a few songs on here I've grown to really like which make this album almost worth buying - "Rock City", "Don't Matter" and "Family Tree". They all contain some of the Kings Of Leon sound and attitude that made me a fan and the latter, despite its compositional simplicity, is probably my favourite from "Mechanical Bull". It's funny, but "Supersoaker", one of the supposed hits from the album, really hasn't grabbed me at all and too much of the album is simply average. I'm sure the diehard Kings Of Leon fans will defend this album, calling it "amazing" and I'm resigned to the negative votes for this lukewarm review, but it just doesn't measure up to their own standards, let alone other brilliant albums you can buy at the moment. This is one Kings Of Leon fan who will need a lot of persuasion to spend hard cash on any further release. Back to the drawing board, gents.
