that i don't see... it's not a complete departure from their previous sounds the way achtung baby was for u2. it's almost like because of the times was like the unforgettable fire, the bridge between the punkish sounds and the atmospheric sounds.

i don't make the joshua tree comparison just because it's a great album. it's the way it sounds in comparison to their previous albums, and how the albums have led into each other.

Yeah, I agree.

That Kings of Leon message board is fucking awful by the way. Maybe the worst I've ever seen.

I don't know. They are already pretty damn big in the UK. But to reach Coldplay or U2 levels, as that article suggests, they'd have to hit the big time over here in the States, too. I do really enjoy the new album and I think Use Somebody will probably be a hit over here when it's released as a single, but I don't think it's enough to propel them to massive popularity in America.

Unfortunately.

I had heard about them in the past few years but never bothered to check them out.

Now I listened to the leak of their new album and I'm blown away. Awesome, awesome album. I can't wait until I can purchase a hard copy.

I'm so ready for this album to come out! I've been good and haven't listened to any leaked copies, so I can't wait to go out, buy it and play it to death next Tuesday!!!!

WOW! I thought that their last album was great, but this one is even better! It's EXTREMELY rare for me to listen to an album for the first time and like every song. The last time that happened for me was probably with Achtung Baby....Anyway, "Use Somebody" is one of the catchiest songs I've heard in years and I hope it turns out to be a single. I can't wait for the album to release officially so I can pick it up and lend KOL some support.

Also, if anyone has any Live versions of the new songs that they can share.........PLEASE!
