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

Return to their Winning Ways.

No filler here folks, there were some good tunes on the last album, but the second half was pretty forgettable. Come Around Sundown see,s the KOL doing what they do best, pleasing themselves and it shows in the loose yet unstructured material here. When they do it like this it really is special. Really strong songs to be found this time round, and I am glad, I want to see them really flip the bird on the next one and give us some good thumping clutter again, I think they might just find thier way back there hopefully.

Good on its own

This album's tracks are good, but not great. This album stands fine on its own, but in context with earlier albums its only sub-par. None of the tracks on CAS quite hit the sound highs that everyone loves in Manhattan or the anthem quality of Use Somebody, and the overall sound seems like its drifting towards easy listening, even a little bit country. They hit the beachy tone they were going for, not sure it measures up in context though.

Come Around Sundown

kings of leon sound allot different from what they usually sound like although it is a great album.

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,...
