^You're so right Rob33....you really have to heard them live to really understand just how powerful Caleb's voice is.

It blew me away, and I just don't throw that term around.

I saw KOL headline at the Greek a few years ago and it was the best concert I saw that year. BRMC club opened and sucked big time.

That said, I don't want to buy the new album because every single thing I've heard from it has been shit. The first two were masterpieces, the third was ok, and now this. When they get back to making music that doesn't suck, I'll be there.

Oh, and Chris Martin is shit. Not the shit, just shit.

Like Brian Eno said... (Talking about U2) "There's a tendency for people who are in the business of art - critics, writers, people who consider themselves insiders - to distrust anything that is easy to like. There's an assumption underlying this that people are quite stupid, and if a lot of them like something then it too must be quite stupid".

I want to catch KOL's concert in October, but sadly I don't think I'll be here by that time.

And Caleb shits on Chris Martin....Caleb is in another universe...Chris Martin isn't even a good rock singer...he's fucking Chris Martin.
Caleb obviously has some bow problems then.

His voice destorys my ears too, so you're right there. Who is better than him? To name a few; Bono, Brandon Flowers, Billie Joe can carry a tune live, thats for shizzle.

Again, he's good....but he's not the best.

Saw them open 5 times for U2. They have some good music, but their live performances didn't make much of an impact on me. Of course, that was 4 years ago.

My first experience was them opening up for U2... and the poor guys either never had a chance to sound check or their crew sucked because their sound was just mud.

Never gave them a chance until recently and was blown away, I think they have a great sound and given a proper gig are damn good live...

Sometimes I enjoy his voice, sometimes I wish I could have an entire album with the vocals stripped away (Because of the Times instrumental would be some fucking awesome dirty rock music).

I'm kind of peeved the only decently priced seats left to their show in Massachusetts next month were 'obstructed view', and they weren't even using the general admission lawn... waste, that's what summer concerts are all about for me.

Like I said...this is excluding Bono and excluding U2...and the only name that comes to mind in this discussion is Brandon Flowers...but still, after seeing KOL, I think Caleb has a more powerful voice than Mr. Flowers

i can't even say "i like their older stuff" for this band. use somebody is quite seriously the song i hate more than any other i've ever heard. sex on fire was good once or twice, as was revelry.

woeful.

and as for his voice, well that's just shit too. he sounds drunk on revelry. i tried to rock up late enough to sound relief so i would deliberately miss kol, but i got there just in time.

I hate it more than most songs. It was being played on radio while I was at work at least six times a day.

It's a pretty good album, the second half is much better than the first. Fader
