KOL continue to rock!,
This review is from: Come Around Sundown (Audio CD)Well despite all the negative reviews I actually really like it! On first listen, I found a few of the songs instantly catchy, while others took a bit longer to grow on me although this isn't such a bad thing. I've now played this album a few times since receiving it 2 days ago and I have to say it far surpasses their previous album 'Only By The Night' which saw Kings of Leon heading in a much more poppy & mainstream direction.
I've been a fan of KOL since Youth & Young Manhood, when a workfriend used to play the album repeatedly & I loved their unique style right from the start. Yes their music has changed slightly through the years, but if every album sounded exactly the same as the last there would be absolutely no element of surprise, and no doubt complaints would be made about the fact that they keep treading over the same old ground.
As another reviewer pointed out, it is still early days for KOL, after all they have only been around for the past 8 years or so, & I can't wait to see what the future brings from this impressive & talented young band as I'm sure even better is yet to come!
