First thoughts? Think it's gonna be a grower...
Love the first three albums but this one does absolutely nothing for me.
they're the songs on this album are a little too forced, perhaps? I'm not sure, it feels quite, not so much contrived, just forced and over-thought.
I actually like Kings of Leon but on this one they're clearly TRYING REALLY HARD to be EPIC. It's just soooooooooo forced. Pure cheese.
now that is some slating.
"Throughout the record, the lyrics are drift from brainless to worthless, and often in the same verse."
"Now, even though Caleb is one of the worst singers and lyricists this side of Paris Hilton and Ashlee Simpson, ..."
I think his voice carries a lot of the songs on this album, (especially 'Closer') and often has been one of the best/most distinctive things about them. I'd go as far as to say he might have one of the best voices in rock today....
I agree his lyrics are poor, but I don't think many people have ever listened to KOL to experience profound sentiments.
if he has one of the best voices in rock today, then that doesn't really say a lot about rock today.
This doesn't sound too hopeful. I was looking forward to purchasing this
way to make me disregard your opinion, mr or mrs reviewer.
I adore it. One duff track out of 11 for me!
love Sex on Fire and Crawl. Going to order this now
but then i am totally gay for this band.
has just finished downloading THIEF THIEF THIEF
I wish I hadn't read the thread the second it finished, I am now CAUTIOUS and BIASED.
'cos I just meant it so damn much.
in the charts.
Jo Whiley LOVES it.
I quite like it too...
a bit like a Because of the Times b-sides collection. I mean I do like it, but all of the songs have that similar feel to them. Closer is a tuuune despite it sounding a bit like 'This Is Why I'm Hot' at the start. It's not their strongest album and that 17 song is already a surefire skip when I listen to it but it's still a decent album.
couple of bright moments but have only heard it twice so lets see...
whats exactly cheesy about it?? is it the lyrics, you dont like they way they dress or its a bit rawwwk for you?
will be played on the end credits of a reality show by the end of the year. £10 on it.
film/tv show by the end of next year too. Still it's a tuuune.
It's a good album.
at the moment, and I loved the first 3. Will give it a few more listens, but do't think that will change the fact that's sterile as fuck.
sweet jesus its crock of blad meandering shite.
Unfortunately I've barely listened to it as its so fucking dull I kept skipping tracks!
I'm so stuck on whether to buy it or not.
I do like it when the bass comes in on the intro to 'Crawl' though.
about skipping tracks I mean. As for buying it, I wouldn't bother personally.
funny though, as i have not heard it yet.
the intro to 17 reminds me of christmas.
then power off, much like BOTT in fact
