I agree with alot of what you said, I 2 wish I was able to witness the fans reaction to Achtung...but I think U2's change was a bit more dramatic than Kings of Leons slow but steady progression
right and i don't compare the Kings change to that of Achtung... i compare it more to the Joshua Tree... U2 went from being a post-punk band to an Eno-ized atmospheric band with a touch of country western thrown in... but it wasn't over night, it was a slow record by record change that ultimately turned into The Joshua Tree.

The Joshua Tree sounds absolutely nothing like Boy in the same way that Achtung Baby sounds nothing like The Joshua Tree/Rattle and Hum.

of course music is subjective... i just think people who toss around the "sell out" line just because a group matures and writes a song that reaches a broad audience is incredibly lame.

KOL are so similar to U2 its scary!

Both bands started off with raw passionate music then U2 produced Joshua Tree and KOL produced Only by the Night. Sex on Fire & Use somebody are U2's WEith or without you & Still hav'nt found!

Can't wait to see KOL change to there Actung Baby days!

I love KOL so much!!!!

I wish Elton John and Eric Clapton had never "matured".

This FTW.

Only By The Night makes complete sense following Because Of The Times.

I c!

I also believe that OBTN is a more "structured" album... mainstream and more radio friendly than their previous work.

Caleb has stated that everything leading up to OBTN was mere experimentation...I guess the same could be said for U2 before The Joshua Tree.


While they may never release a song with the same gritty Southern feel as "Spiral Staircase" or "Genius", they couldn't have kept doing that shit forever!

I just wish it was someone like Editors who had this newfound commercial success, not Kings Of Leon, 'cause that FollowIll guy's voice sounds downright feral.
