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

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 .....

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.

At the price I paid for this album it is a snip , my musical tastes are very varied , but probably a bit dated , I don't listen to the radio so it takes me a long time to catch on to the latest hot sounds , which perversely is good thing as I don't have to listen to a lot of dross . Artistes , generally not always , who last beyond 3 albums are usually a class act , and the Kings of Leon are no exception , not really a bad track on this album , and some outstanding ones , always a bonus when buying an album , so grab a bargain.

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.

I got this CD as a fathers day present and I was not happy with the quality of the product. It had a big scratch right down the front of the plastic and it was filthy and had little scratches dotted about. I got the dulexe edition for the 3d front cover but unfortunately due to all the scratches you could barely see the cover. Like I said this was a gift so I had to explain to my dad and offer to return it making his gift late.
Very poor quality product!

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 am a huge fan of KOL and love this album. Its a real sing along album and one to turn up loud in the car.

Bought this expecting to only like a few tracks and was very pleasantly surprised to discover just how good the whole album is.
