Editors’ Notes

Capitalizing on the stripped- and slimmed-down approach of Only By the Night, Kings of Leon come back with another lean and mean collection of serious rock. The Strokes-to-Stones ambush of their earlier records has mostly been forsaken for a cleaner, radio-friendly sound that wants the world and wants it now. “The End” comes snarling not out of their hometown South, but with the noir and glitter of Los Angeles. “Radioactive” channels the Cure and 1980s college-rock with vocal wails and guitar chimes. “Pyro” skips down the backroads with a rock star’s pose and a dose of homegrown Tom Petty. “Mary” throws the distorted guitars to the wall. “The Face” pulses with the feel that they’ve wandered into Chris Isaak’s bedroom. “Back Down South” is their quick trip to Exile-era Stones. “Beach Side” is the lighter side of Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer.” “No Money” throws the band back into a barroom battle of the bands with their sharpest moves out front. Come Around Sundown shows a band well versed in every decade of rock ‘n’ roll and beholden to none.

Customer Reviews

Dull and boring

I really hate it when this happens. A band who produced some absolutely brilliant work in their first three albums go on to bring out some of the most dull and turgid music imaginable. What happened to the life and the energy boys. I know you're older and making a good living, but come on. Surely in your position you can take some risks at this stage in your career rather than play it so safe. If ever an album was written for the 30 or 40 something dinner party, BMW driving crowd to wave lighters and mobiles in arenas, this is it. Yes, it will sell in bucketloads to fans of mainstream MOR rock, but when I go back and listen to Red Morning Light, Mollys Chambers, The Bucket, Charmer and Black Thumbnail, I could weep. My opinion counts for nothing in the grand scheme of things, but to say I'm disappointed in what were one of my favourite bands is putting it mildly.

Love it!!

I have been waiting for new kol for a long long time and it was definitely worth the wait. Enough rap crap, this is real music!

As good as ever

Amazing. seems a bit like aha shake heartbreak mixed with because of the times


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 hair, mustaches,...
