Album of the Year,
This review is from: Youth and Young Manhood [Digipak] (Audio CD)
After the recent 'What I Saw' E.P. featuring the awesome Red Morning Light, I was expecting something special from this album and it doesn't disappoint.
Youth & Young Manhood wears its Retro influences on its sleeve - Bob Dylan, Lynyrd Skynrd, The Stones, Zeppelin, even a touch of Tom Petty - but, like The White Stripes and Strokes before them, Kings of Leon take these influences and make something that sounds new, fresh and exciting.
Dirty vocals, great riffs, simple yet powerful drums combine to stunning effect.
Best new band of the year.
