Our Review

As the Followill brothers (and cousin Matthew) grow up their sound matures in unexpected ways. Their first releases promoted a group tough on guitars and infatuated with a southern-slinging garage rock; their more recent work has turned its ears towards an anthemic arena rock that singer Caleb Followill embraces with the messianic streak of Bono himself (or at least the Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson). “Use Somebody” twirls in a splashing of guitar riffs and reverb-ed atmospherics, the backing vocals merging with the indistinct drones of the wispy keyboards. “Manhattan” most directly recalls the soulful screed of the Crowes’ Chris Robinson, while the band show unusual restraint leaving silences and space where they once would’ve come out with all guns drawn. By expanding their influences and options, Kings of Leon, for better and worse, have left their roots behind. The primitive, angry growls have turned to pensive moments of calm introspection (“Revelry,” “Cold Desert”). When they do ramp things up, it’s with a jazzy precision as “Crawl” and “Sex on Fire” employ a musical intricacy that would’ve been unthinkable back in the days of Youth and Young Manhood. It’s this band’s natural evolution, but there’s no denying it’s a shock to the system.

Give this a 4.8 (5 stars)
The Kings of Leon have achieved something great with "Only By the Night." Hardcore fans will complain they have lost what initially made them stand out, and that is true. KOL's early days were marked by a rawness and intensity unparalleled in the underground and indie scenes. "Youth and Manhood" and "Aha Shake Heartbreak" carried unchecked , yet driving tempos and the wholly individual voice of Caleb Foll

OH NO! (1 star)
It saddens me deeply that this great band has drifted away from the southern rawness that used to set them apart from every other band. Like the Stones before them, the Kings were great because they were real. Their records were never overly produced or polished. They were raw and the band displayed a synergy of noise that is rare in the music world today. On this record, to my dismay, they have steered in a direction that has been thoroughl

Album of the Year (5 stars)
Finally REAL MUSIC in 2008!! Folks... Lil Wayne, Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana is not music.

Biography

Formed: 2000 in Nashville, TN
Genre: Alternative
Years Active: '00s, '10s

Initially embraced as "the Southern Strokes" for their resurrection and reinvention of Dixie-styled rock & roll, Kings of Leon steadily morphed themselves into an experimental rock outfit during the 2000s. The Tennessee-bred quartet debuted in 2003 with the Holy Roller Novocaine EP, whose blend of raw, unpolished boogie rock was further explored on their debut full-length, Youth & Young Manhood. Such revivalist music was matched by a similarly revivalist appearance — including long...
