Being an older music fan (over 35 but only just) I usually have very conservative tastes but when my 15 year old son bought this album I immediately confiscated it and have been playing it ever since. I'm even accompanying him to their Birmingham gig in December. The sound is reminiscent of the 70s American rock I had played to me by my dad when I was growing up and so I felt immediately at home listening to this album. I can't say I have a favourite track as they are all equally excellent. I can't wait for the next album.

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.

Brilliant. Truely is. I managed to get hold of the Holy Roller Novocaine E.P on initial release (after hearing Molly's Chambers on Rollingstone.com) and was blown away. I think California Waiting is bleeding gorgeous! HOWEVER, on the album -California waiting has been re-mastered and has lost some of its magic for me (track the e.p down its worth it)
Track for track, every song is really good (not a massive fan of Dusty - but still like it), Best tracks here are 'Joe's Head', 'California Waiting', 'Trani' & hidden track 'Talihina Sky'(also a b-side on single 'what i saw')......This album should be bought by everone.....& if you like this album: wait till you see them live!

I bought this album on hearing only one of The Kings of Leon's songs - Red Morning Light. What a buy! Not only was this song brilliant (the opening song to the album, luckily), but as I continued to listen, I liked the album more and more.
Never have I heard 12 (including the hidden track) more bluesy rock songs so brilliantly sung, with such raw talent, on a debut album.
The songs on the album range from upbeat-rocky ones, that make you want to dance like Mick Jagger and play air guitar, to some more soulful ones, that make you want to sit back relax and enjoy the soulful rock tunes that have been created by these new Gods of Music.
An album that will surely go down in history as one of the greatest debut albums ever, listened to, by people who truly love music.
Can't wait for the next one!!

I've been re-listening to this lately, a lot. While I love all their work (Aha Shake Heartbreak is a very underrated album) this album is the pick of the bunch in so many ways. It's so raw yet so visceral at the same time, repeated listening rewards with new discoveries.

Sure, their later stuff is great but I was a bit underwhelmed with 'Only by the night' - I just think they've lost something in bringing their sound so far, and in listening to this after their latest stuff the clarity of progression is huge. I guess they had to move on but maybe they lost something when they dropped the spit and sawdust rock for stadium filling anthems.

Buy this, it's a total classic.

I'm disapointed, not with the actual content of the CD (which is very good) but with the so called copy right protection on this CD. I object to the record company dictating to me how I should listen to music I've paid for. It won't work on my ipod, I can't burn it for use on my portable mp3 player either, and I can't play it in the player of my choice on my PC. The music itself was very good, but it's no good to me if I can't listen to it, so I returned it to the shop. It's no wonder that record sales are slumping, who wants to buy a CD that they can't use.

This album is possibly the best debut ever - while the Kings Of Leon sound almost classic, and their older influences can be easily heard, Youth And Young Manhood still manages to sound fresh, new and modern. Stand out tracks are 'California Waiting', 'Mollys Chambers' and 'Genius'. However, the rest of the album is just as good, and even the bonus track, 'Talihina Sky' (fast forward the last track) is brilliant. Infact, it is also one of the best on the album, with beatiful piano and lyrics to accompany. The solo's are also awesome, and the riffs suprisingly catchy. If anything, I think 'Wasted Time' is the one weak point on the album - but then again a lot of people like this the best. Buy this album if you like feel good, upbeat rock mixed with serious.. ballads, almost. Be warned, however, that the UK version is definitley copy protected - although I'm not sure about others.

Fact: If Red Morning Light doesn't get you dancing, you don't have a pulse, and its just one of the brilliant party anthems on Youth And Young Manhood, and album so good even my most cynical friends who are obsessed with the opinion that real music is dead have been raving about its excellence since it came out in 2003.
Kings Of Leon manage to bring the old rock 'n' roll and American country music they were brought up on to a modern audience by keeping the old skool structure and funking it up with crunchy guitars and some great riffs. Lead singer Caleb Followill's deep, rasping vocals (loved by some and dispised by others) help make the kings the most unique band around in a time of boring Morrissey wannabes and Strokes impersonaters.
There isn't a bad song on this album, though Trani is somewhat unremarkable compared to tracks like Happy Alone, Spiral Staircase and Molly's Chambers (the kind of brilliance Jet tried and failed to recapture in Are You
Gonna Be My Girl). Even the hidden track, Talihina Sky which follows Holy Roller Novocaine is an absolute treasure and well worth the wait.
