Image of Kings of Leon


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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad hairdos, excellent band March 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Occasionally the critical buzz surrounding a band's big-time debut turns out to be more than justified, and I'm pleased to report that "Youth & Young Manhood" is one such release. It's rare for music this direct and free of embellishment to leave such an impression, but Kings of Leon pull off the trick quite easily because they manage to combine an abundance of emotion and songcraft with a complete lack of pretension. In fact, while Kings of Leon have somehow managed to draw some comparisons with the Strokes, the Strokes could take a few lessons from these guys. Instead of retro urban cool, the Kings offer a booze-fuelled good time, equal parts rootsy and rocking, that should have plenty of appeal for rock fans seeking a legitimate alternative to the prevailing trends of the day.
While I didn't hear any echoes of the Strokes here, that's not to say these guys don't remind me of anyone else, but you have to reach back a little further in rock history to find some parallels. If anything, their occasionally incendiary, slapped-together, southern-accented sound makes me think of the Replacements or Dinosaur Jr. cross-bred with Creedence Clearwater Revival. The Kings specialize in uptempo rockers filled with screaming guitars and hard-driving rhythms, topped off by the garbled drawl of singer Caleb Followill. Showing a grasp of dynamics to rival the mighty Pixies, the songs often pick up steam early on before shifting into overdrive for some of the most insanely catchy choruses in recent memory. And the guitar solos are models of efficiency, accomplishing more in a few seconds than you might think possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Hail Kings of Leon May 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I disagree with the reviewer from Colorado who gave this band one star. Like that reviewer, I too saw Kings of Leon open for U2 last week, and they were amazing. Their music is dizzying, exhilarating, and sometimes even heartbreaking. After the U2 concert, I bought KOL's recent "Aha Shake Heartbreak" and 2003's "Holy Roller Novocaine" (which features several of the songs on "Youth and Young Manhood"). I have been listening to both albums nonstop. This band perfectly embodies the crazy, anarchic, Dada spirit of rock that makes it worth listening to in the first place. They the real deal. Wait and see...

4.0 out of 5 stars It was only a matter of time August 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Kings of leon are a southern band who play country and
blues style rock 'n roll with punk overtones. You've
probably heard about their background already so I won't
get into that. The LPs opener, Talahina Sky, is a slow
bluesy tune, but after that comes the fantastic Red Morning
Light, a fast more punky tune. The albums tone changes
but still it all gels together. California Waitin' edges
towards The Strokes, Mollys Chambers is the most poppyish
they get but its still great of course, Joe's Head (the
highlight for me) would make Bob Dylan proud and then there
are plenty more upbeat rawkers like Wasted Time, Happy Alone
and Holy Roller Novocaine. If you're into the whole 'garage scene'you'll probably like it but remember its best for true
rock 'n roll fans. A great record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Pure Rock N Roll In Years May 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Amazing! These boys ROCK! It is hard to believe how young they are and when you consider their sheltered upbringing with Preacher Pa it is all the more amazing what they have accomplished in 2 years' time. This record is fabulous and the follow-up, Aha Shake Heartbreak is even better! They are both must haves. As an "older" fan from the early '80s REM Athens Ga era, I have seen and heard a lot of bands and it has been a long time since I have been this excited over anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars the real youth & young manhood. August 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Kings of Leon - Good old southern boy's from the home of porn - a delightful deluge of cross dressing, easy women and yarns from the murky subculture of their transient youth. So the obvious question in this day and age to ask is who are they ripping off? Lynard Skynard? Yes a little. Credence Clearwater? Yes a touch here and there, there's also a touch of the Velvet underground in the subject matter but they swagger with an exuberance and an effervescence that makes this a refreshing and vital recording. I can sense the sniggers, the chuckle as you point out the obvious clichéd reference points. But that just goes to prove even further what a triumph this debut album is, so here comes another cliché 'better to have people talking about you (good or bad) than not talking about you at all, ahhhhhh, yes, the kings are in the spotlight, they are again being lauded by the fickle music press you say and next month it'll be the hiss, or the rapture, or some other band named after a forgotten part of the human anatomy. Yes, a highly likely assessment but forget all that and just listen to the music. I then challenge you not to break out in an all over, foot stomping smile, that has you coming back for more and more of the same. In all their seedy glorious moment the Kings of Leon are just trying to get out, and get on, don't deny them their story. Those who thought American youth was all about sports jackets, candy floss, cheese burgers, red convertibles, Budweiser, coca-cola, Florida, Venice beach, surfing, Molly Ringwald, the Yankees, Joe Montana, cheer leaders and thickshakes - well think again.
