After a few short years away, the KOL return with a new album, so is it any good? well yes and no.

There's nothing on Mechanical Bull that really grabs you first time around. Lead single "Supersoaker" is a decent effort but hardly earth shattering. Sadly, this and the frantic "Don't matter" is about as good as it get's. Someone else mentioned in a review on here that the songs kinda blended into one another, i can see their point, it's all rather one paced and laid back. Now before the haters step in, i don't hate this album at all, it's decent...just not as good as we'd come to expect. I was hoping after a few years away the Kings woulda recharged their creative spark but seems that i was wrong. There's no doubt this won't attract any new fans but if you've been with the boys this far, then you'll no doubt find something on here to like.

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.
