Unless U2 produce a masterpiece i think U2 have no chance of even getting close to outselling this Kings of Leon album in the UK.

The Bomb sold 1.2 million and Kings of Leon have sold a million so far; if the album has some good singles it might match it.

Thats 1 million sold in 3 months though! Bomb sold 1.2 since 2004. Kings of Leon still have 2 more singles to be released from album and another UK tour in June i predict Kings of Leon to sell nearer 1.5m in the UK so for U2 to beat this they will have to out sell there last 2 releases which i feel would be unlikely unless they have some massive radio friendly tunes!

Kings of Leon are absolutely HUGE in Australia at the moment; they have the biggest selling album of the year unless Pink catches up to them and you hear them on just about every radio station. Whether this "It Band of the Year" thing will translate into a long-term success and Telstra Dome shows a few years down the track is anybody's guess.

Personally I'd like them more if their singer didn't sound like he's got ten layers of rust coating his throat.

Kings of Leon are selling huge amount in the UK, they're one of only four acts to hit a million this year. I'd bet on them outselling U2, although I hope U2 could sell more

It's bizarre to me that I'm feeling a really strong sense of nostalgia for a band that's been around less than 10 years. The new album isn't bad, but there's nothing really remarkable about it. It has a very generic, mass-produced sound to me, and I think it pales in comparison to all of their previous work. KOL suffered because of opening for U2--certainly not financially, since they've got a huge fan base now and are selling plenty of albums, but I'd argue they've suffered creatively. I keep listening to it, hoping it will be a grower, but it hasn't been. If nothing else, it's made me realize what a good album Because Of the Times was, though.

I just saw them live at the O2 here in London and honestly they were sensational reminded me of U2 in the late eighties. I am a massive live music fan and U2 are simply the best live but these guys are brilliant too and i can only see them going from strength to strength. Their next tour is now bound to be the big stadiums (but i prefer the smaller venues)

I saw them live on this tour. I thought they were good, maybe even really good, but nowhere near great. And I can name 5 bands off the top of my head that I've seen in the past couple years that were much, MUCH better live than Kings of Leon, starting with Bloc Party.

U2 are great.

Kings of Leon are good.

Bono was at the side of the stage for the kings of leon gig at the O2 in Dublin on Friday night. Reports says that he was really into it and singing along to every song!

He must have great taste in music!

There's already a KOL thread (started by you, amazingly enough ) on the first page of this forum. Why start a new thread for this?
