5.0 out of 5 stars Sticky southern garage rock ... Roll on summer nights!, 7 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aha Shake Heartbreak (Audio CD)
I did expect too much from this album. Way too much. I listened and I listened and couldn't quite work out whether it was a work of genius or just a load of bull. But soon after loading it onto my ipod to while away the hot evenings and night this summer I fell in love. The album itself has three aspects of a KOL album that, I think, needs ..

Firstly the classic tracks - 'King of The Rodeo', 'Taper Jean Girl' and 'The Bucket'.

Secondly the constants in all their albums old and new - Caleb Followill's '30-a-day' rasping southern drawl, the distorted guitar licks of Nathan Followill and the heartbreaking and sexually tainted lyrics.

Thirdly a new direction. I have found that within the 4 albums that they have produced there is a different inspiration - "Only By Night" was for the stadiums and the success of KOL in the music markets and "Because of the Times" was mainly 'going back to the roots' and success in England (I recommend both!)

They are a relatively new band and are still exploring their field within this album.

This album has it all! But I warn you .. this does need breaking in and playing through and through. All in all a beautifully crafted album .. do I expect any less from Kings of Leon?

Certainly not!

Well done Boys! x
