This is a far cry from the rattling, almost punk-like rhythms of Aha Shake Heartbreak.

This album is a slow-burner.

Not what I wanted to hear. I thought the first two albums were great, the third one was a little too mellow, and now this? Perhaps I don't need to rush out and get it the day it comes out.

Either one of the first two are fine.

I've been listening to this a lot the last 48 hours and it really is growing on me and I'm starting to love it. I think the same thing happened when I first heard Because of the Times, too.

This one, though, is a definite departure. Way slower and more deliberate. But there are gorgeous moments throughout and I only think it will grow on me even more.

Use Somebody is the best song on here and is one of the most immediately likable songs I have heard all year.

I've listened to the album twice now and I'm still gonna wait till judgement. Where did the rock go from Kings of Leon ? I've seen this band 5 times llive (seeing them again in October) and this is a major departure. I understand bands need to grow, but this was a depature I was afraid of based on some of the promo pictures for this album. We went from bringing switchblades & guns to a fight to a soundtrack you can use while looking at your old highschool yearbook. Tracks I enjoy:

Crawl
Sex On Fire
I Want You
Cold Desert (Great song)

I'll listen to it a few more times

I've never heard this song 'Cold Dessert' but the Kings of Leon song 'Cold Desert' is pretty good, yeah.

i'm only through 5 songs of the album, but thus far it's spectacular.

much more polished, mature recording.

i hate using the u2 comparison but the way their sound has progressed really does remind of the way u2's sound progressed over the years... from the post-punkish sounds to a more atmospheric feel.

This album is amazing. I've been listening to it pretty much exclusively for the last 4 days and it keeps growing on me. I think the only track right now that I don't flat-out love is 17. And even that one has its moments.

Anyone else loving this shit right now?

Oh, Headache, right on cue. Glad you like it. Yeah, I really love the way this band has progressed. And they haven't even been around that long.

That's funny because actually on the kingsofleon.com message board someone created a thread suggesting that this album is their Achtung Baby. No joke.

Also, even though their sound has changed...their lyrics haven't. Caleb is still singin about boozin and bangin girls.

I can dig it.
