Biography

The Kings of Leon hadn’t even started to think about making a new album when they headed out to play shows in Australia and South Africa in late 2011. The four Followills -- singer/ guitarist Caleb, guitarist Matthew, drummer Nathan, bassist Jared -- had been on a fairly relentless grind for the preceding eight years, releasing five albums and touring the world dozens of times since ...

Editorial Reviews

RCA Records announces the September 24 release of the new Kings of Leon record, Mechanical Bull. Angelo Petraglia produced the album, which was recorded at the band s studio in Nashville, TN.

Kings of Leon are fresh off three acclaimed headlining performances at American festivals, Bottle Rock in Napa, CA, Hangout in Gulf Shores, AL, and, most recently, this past weekend's Governor's Ball in New York City, during which the festival cancelled the band's Friday night performance due to Tropical Storm Andrea. The band, upset over the cancellation, worked through the night with festival organizers and management to figure out a way to come back on Saturday. The festival found a place for them on the main stage right before the Saturday headliner, during which the fans were treated to the live premiere of Mechanical Bull's first single, "Supersoaker."

5.0 out of 5 stars They Did It Again. . . September 28, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As if I expected them to do anything other than create a great album. I purchased this a day after it released and couldn't listen to it til the next day and when I did, that feeling I get when I listen to Caleb's voice, happened all over again.

SUPERSOAKER is fun and a great way to open the album. ROCK CITY makes me forget I'm singing a song. DON'T MATTER had to grow on me (there is always one that does) but now that it has it flows with me, BEAUTIFUL WAR is a wonderful song, it opens up with truth from the first to the last word, TEMPLE is great reminds me of the 80's, I feel happy when it comes on. WAIT FOR ME starts off with that great opener that you can only get from a KOL album, FAMILY TREE is a solid rock song, COMEBACK STORY is Brilliance in music. There is always a few KOL songs that make me cry or feel some kind of way and this is one of them. The lyrics, the passion in Calebs voice, the production, it's brilliant and every time I listen to it, I drift off into a place where only music can take me, TONIGHT is the other song that gets to me deeply. I am so happy these were placed right after each other because when I repeat one, the other tags along. The lyrics are perfect, absolutely perfect. Sometimes I think when they are writing songs, that they are right up in my head. ON THE CHIN closes the album out nicely. It's soft, like a melody, it's sweet and charming. It's a KOL.

If you are a fan like I am and you know all of their music, have accepted all of their albums and it's differences, then you will LOVE, LOVE this album. Get It . . . listen and fall into that place that only KOL can take you.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality pressing / Album does not Disappoint September 25, 2013
By DoubleA
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Pre-ordered this album and received it on the release date and played it through upon opening. The 180gram pressing is really great quality vinyl. It sounds fantastic and looks good. The Kings came back with some quality songs that seem to show the growing up they have done since we last heard from them. More mature songs with deeper content and more thought invested. It's a little slower and more melodic than some of their previous offerings but I enjoy the change of pace. It's a great album to actually sit down and listen to as well as to have playing in the background. There's still a lot of that signature Kings sound with the melancholy guitar work that I really enjoy. I think there first release, Supersoaker, is about as mainstream radio as it gets on this album. It's a great song that will probably be a nice transition song for fans of the Only By the Night album. I'm glad to see the Kings have returned and brought with them some quality work!

5.0 out of 5 stars It Will Grow On You!!! October 3, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am going to keep it short and straight to the point. I am a big fan of Only By The Night, so that might tell you what I enjoy from Kings of Leon. At first I didn't enjoy this album very much. Not many songs reached out to me where I need to listen to it again right away. However, I went for a 2 hour walk and listened to the album again and I came away enjoying it. The more I listened to the album the more it grew on me. If you are a Kings of Leon fan, go buy this album. If you like rock music and want to listen to something new, I recommend this album. I am not going to talk about the individual songs because everybody likes something different. Just pick the album up and give it a shot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ride it or Buck it. September 28, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Having been a fan of Kings of Leon since "Youth and Young Manhood," it's been interesting to watch how they've changed and matured as each album comes along. "Mechanical Bull" is their slickest yet. Cleanly produced, vocals upfront, heck, even strings (on "Comeback Story"). It's also the Kings' most blatantly commercial album, even more so than "Come Around Sundown." If you found that album to be too much for you, you're not going to like "Mechanical Bull."

However, I do. It's OK for a band to progress beyond their roots. With all the infighting going on after "Sundown," I'm surprised we have an album at all. But, as they say, blood is thicker than water, and when Caleb Fallowill sings he'd "take one in the temple for you" (on "Temple"), he could easily be talking about the relationship he's got with his fellow bandmates. They're back to bringing out the best in each other, including some very tasty guitar on "Coming Back Again" from Matthew Followill, who is in top form throughout "Mechanical Bull." Be it the arena sized soloing ("Rock City") or even just using it for subtle coloration ("Beautiful War"), he's become a force to be reckoned with.

"Mechanical Bull" revels in that diversity. Between the aforementioned strings, the pedal steel on "On The Chin," and the album's leaner feel, Kings of Leon are finding their way to greener pastures. And that's no Bull.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding September 26, 2013
By Lisa
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the KOL album that most likely will drive hard-core fans of their first three albums completely off the rails. And by hard-core fans I mean those who simply do not want the band to grow and change with time. "Mechanical Bull" has some of their most beautiful music to date, along with some rather funky grooves that show just how much the band is willing to take risks and create music that will satisfy themselves as a band along with fans who are willing to take a chance with them. "Beautiful War" and "Wait for Me" are haunting both lyrically and musically; while "Rock City" and "Don't Matter" fall into a more edgy rock sound that is a bit different yet similar to what they've done in the past. "Temple" is noteworthy because it's just gorgeous. "Supersoaker" gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it and really is a standout amongst all the songs. Personally, I find this album to be full of surprises--good surprises--and an absolute joy to listen to again and again.
