I must say that KOL is probably my second favourite band right now, I'm having Only by the night on heavy rotation, I love that album. I also like their previous work, but I didn't really get into the band until I heard their current album. I've never seen them live but would go as soon as they play here.

Honestly, I bet they kicked ass back in 2005. Sound sucked? Maybe. But it was at least before they sucked. I've never seen them live (and now with the consistently fantastic YYY going opposite them at ACL, I probably won't ever), but I bet those shows where they opened for Shuttlecock were actually pretty good.

Awesome? Nah. But he knows exactly who he is. He knows he's goofy and geeky, a sense of humor the entire band has about themselves. A lot of folks think they take themselves too seriously. That couldn't be farther from the truth.

I don't mind some of their music, but I think their singer's got one of the worst rock voices I've heard in ages. Makes me think of two rusty saws dragged against each other. It may stop grating on me one day, but until then, no thanks.

Yeah, I can understand people who really can't stand his voice because it's so unique...if it's not your style, I can see how it'd be really grating...I guess he has one of those voices you usually either love or hate....oh well

I'm not entirely sure how Caleb managed it, but he's both whiny and mushmouthed on Use Somebody. If his phrasing was as irritating as Liam Gallagher or Axl Rose's, he would have nearly every irritating vocal tic known to man.

One of the most annoying voices in rock and one of the most generic bands out there. Never liked them but I have to admit they had a few good songs at first but from what I've heard it's been a steady descent into awfulness. Use Somebody sounds okay until the vocals kick in then you realise the only person he needs is a singing coach. Sex on Fire was an average song when it was released and now after I've heard it a million times...it sounds like shit.

What's that song again Molly's Chambers or something? That's a good one

Plus Kings of Leon were audible over Cat Power when I saw her, not cool at all. I'll never forget some guy stopping me at a festival to say "Where do you think you're going Kings of fucking Leon are on next!"
