Editorial Reviews

From the small clubs of Nashville to London's biggest arenas, Kings of Leon have established themselves as one of the biggest modern rock acts of the 21st century. Now, as they prepare for their first live outings in more than a year, RCA/Legacy will issue The Collection Box, the definitive KoL compendium featuring all of their studio albums - and some special extras - in one package.

The Oklahoma-based family band - brothers Caleb Followill (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Jared Followill (bass) and Nathan Followill (drums) and cousin Matthew Followill (guitar) - have earned critical raves from the beginning. Debut album Youth and Young Manhood (2003), which deftly combined Southern-fried boogie with a helping of garage-rock stomp, was named one of the top 10 albums of the year by Rolling Stone and NME. Follow-ups Aha Shake Heartbreak (2005) and Because of the Times (2007) continued to build KoL's enthusiastic fan base and critical cachet.

But it was 2008's Only by the Night that established Kings of Leon's place in the modern rock canon. Loaded with some of their most urgent tunes to date, including "Sex on Fire" and "Notion," Only by the Night also turned out a worldwide smash in the anthemic "Use Somebody," which won the band three Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year, in 2009. The stage was set for 2010's hard-driving Come Around Sundown, their most recent studio effort, to take audiences by storm thanks to fiery cuts like "Radioactive" and "Pyro."

The Collection brings together, in one custom collectible box, all five KoL albums - all featuring bonus tracks previously only available on international pressings - as well as 2009's Live at The O2 London, England DVD. This set is your one-stop guide to Kings of Leon as they embark on exciting new ventures in the coming year.

By Paul Allaer TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 15, 2013
Format: Audio CD
Ahead of Kings of Leon's new album (expected later this year in September), their record label has issued this handy collection box. Plain and simple, "The Collection Box" (2013 release; 5 CDs; 1 DVD) brings you all of KOL's studio albums: 2003's Youth & Young Manhood, 2005's A-Ha Shake Heartbreak, 2007's Because of the Times, 2008's Only By The Night, and 2010's Come Around Sundown. Also included is a concert DVD called Live at the 02 London, England. All discs are packaged in LP replica mini-jackets.

Just a few notes on the CDs (5CDs, 66 tracks; 237 min.), the first four albums are a straight-forward reissue. But note that the most recent album "Come Around Sundown" is included here in its 'deluxe edition', with 3 additional tracks (a terrific "Celebration", which is one of the better songs of the entire album and by all means should've been included on the regular album), and remixes of "Radioactive" and "Closer", the latter being completely redone.

As to the DVD, it is a straight-forward reissue of the 2009 release "Live at the 02 London, England" (22 songs; 100 min.), and I'm guessing that this inclusion could be quite enticing to those that 'like' KOL but wouldn't otherwise be bothered to buy their only concert DVD to date. This was recorded at the height of their tour in support of the band's monster-breakout (in the US anway) album "Only By the Night", and the selist reflects this (8 of the album's 11 tracks are on here).

Bottom line: if you have the urge to buy most of KOL's output in one fell swoop, you cannot go wrong with this. No, this is NOT the entire KOL (tons of B sides and one-offs such as the excellent 2006 live EP called "Day Old Belgian Blues" are MIA), but this is not the intent of this box set.

I am slow to buy alblums until I know theres more than say one song that I want, which means I missed a lot of good music from KOL. I didn't really become a fan until a year after Only by the Night was released and have since watched alot of youtube with my granddaughter, both of us becoming avid fans (ok so at 1 she's just there to rock to sleep with gramps but she does like the music).
This set was made for someone like me. I couldn't get enough KOL but the only record store I'll buy from is quite a distance and I'm on a tight budget. I couldn't be happier with this box set and wish that more bands had such a great deal for their music library.

If you are looking into this set you probably know the bands hits and are wondering what else may be good and to that I say "A Lot!". Kings of Leon may be a classic southern rock band in their style but they do so love to experiment. Many songs I have found don't jump out at you as great until a week later you're still stuck on that cool bass beat (I play around on the bass so thats my thing) or odd guitar riff. Every alblum of theirs deserves multiple listening and you may find that a song that you didn't even like grows on you and takes ahold of you and won't let go. Such is the nature of good rock bands.

So take a chance. It is a very good deal if you don't already have their alblums. I bought it even though I had one already and it's still worth it.

I live for music..all music...I believe every genre from classical to country and everything in between has some beauty and value. Kings of Leon are in my opinion the most amazing, talented band around today. Yeah, first song I heard was Use Somebody. Wasn't one of the lucky "indie-hipsters" who discovered them way back when, so what? It changed my world. I went back...listened and bought everything this band has given..Youth and Young Manhood to Come Around Sundown and every hidden treasure track in between. Seen them Live 4 times...this is not a studio band..these guys sound amazing and bring it. Sound biast, obsessed even? Maybe but name me a band who has over 80ish plus tracks that are awesome? These guys don't stay stagnant..they have grown evolved and changed! If your like many who think KOL are just 2 hit wonders...it's ok..not your fault. Kings don't bow down for the radio love. Please, trust me...research, buy this collection or any other to experience goose bumps. Their music, their story and their sound is haunting. Try it you'll like it! So hard to pick favorites but here goes...Cold Desert, Arizona, California Waiting, The Bucket, Four Kicks, Taper Jean Girl, Red Morning Light, No Money, Revelry, Manhattan,Pick Up Truck..I could go on but I think you are picking up what I'm putting down ;) New CD coming soon...sneak listen..Wait For Me...Beautiful stuff. Oh yeah and last but not least...price on this collection...amaze-balls!

Every song is awesome on this greatest hits collection. From the first song "Knocked Up" to the last song "Talhina Sky" it's just wall to wall super sounds. I'm really happy to listen to these songs play on my iPhone going to and from work.

Kings of Leon are my favorite group from this century. They have a sound that is very retro (early 70's rock, country and punk influences) but definitely with their own modern twist on songwriting. This is a great collection of their earlier CDs, and I love the DVD. They are so good live, it's scary. If you are a fan of KOL, you can't go wrong with this set. One of the things that set them apart is Caleb's distinctive vocals and the lyrics in their songs. The drumming is fantastic, the bass lines are expressive and inventive, and the lead guitar solos are sparse but perfect for each song (reminiscent of Tom Petty's lead guitar player). KOL can rock with the best of them, but when they slow it down, their music is so haunting it stays with you for days after listening.
