kings of leon back - but dramatically changed,
This review is from: Aha Shake Heartbreak (Audio CD)
Everyone liked the thrill of "youth and young manhood," but this is on a new level! The songs are much more meaningful and the kings see,m to have changed their attitude completely. The new songs are ooze that "yeah, been there done that" attitude. Now they are recovering from all their std's and stuff like that that they've accumulated on their travels over the past year or so. The kings have such a fantastic future though, they are still so young (ages ranging from 18 to the ripe old age of 24), and they are already producing such mature rcok, that seems to brag experience.
"the bucket" is the first single off the album and at the date this was written the next single looks likely to be either "four kicks" or "razz", but more likely "four kicks."
The uk version has a bonus track - "where nobody knows" and it isn't an irrelevant piece of rubbish like a lot of artists like to seem to add on the end of their albums.
Another thing about the album is that it has a secret littl epicture on the inside, like the booklet in Radiohead's "Kid A." The disc tray is white and if you prize it out then you can see a picture of the young Followills with the caption "to all who show our heartbroken smiles."
