iTunes Review

Their hooks are on fire. The Followills double down with a masterclass in monumental choruses and sweeping prairie rock on songs that pack devastating pop precision beneath their ragged soul. It’s hard to look beyond “Sex On Fire”—an audacious cocktail of anthemic uplift and unbuckled raunch—but from the crackling stomp of “Crawl” and the soaring harmonies on “Use Somebody” to the triumphant chimes gilding “17”, this fourth record (released just a year after their third) is a near-flawless showcase of Caleb, Jared, Nathan and Matthew’s songwriting supremacy.

Wow, seems like everyone else loves it. Sadly, as a huge KOL fan, I'm massively disappointed.

The rolling basslines and crashing guitars of earlier albums have given way to a more radio-friendly mid-tempo rock as they've matured, and I feel that this album is the conclusion of a road they threatened to go down in the last album: more Bruce Springsteen than Rolling Stones. Admittedly, 'Because of the Times' was a grower, but it was also their weakest album 'til this came along. I hate to be the guy who stops liking a band when they get massive, but where's the 'Charmer', 'Four Kicks' or 'Spiral Staircase'?

Initially embraced as "the Southern Strokes" for their resurrection and reinvention of Dixie-styled rock & roll, Kings of Leon steadily morphed 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 hair, mustaches, and tight-fitting...
