Is it just me or is the new album a bit of a letdown ? Lacking in energy, overproduced, just one mid-tempo song after another.....

I really like the album and I wouldn't call it a letdown but it is definitely my least favorite of the four KOL albums thus far.

89.7 here in Omaha has 'Sex on Fire' in pretty heavy rotation, heard it twice just yesterday.

Actually, I think it's probably better overall than Youth and Young Manhood purely because of their maturation and improvement as a band but it just isn't up there with Aha Shake and Because of the Times.

I think it's there best album. For the maturity factor mentioned by GirlsAloudFan. It's got the energy of Because Of The Times, but this time it's more focused.

The hyperbole for this mediocre record is astounding.

No shit, I find it very flat and lacking in energy, the songs seem very samey in terms of tempo. I'm sure someone will do a detailed bpm analysis and show there is a greater than 12-sigma variation but that's just how it feels. The first 3 or 4 songs are pretty good, but it just never builds, it kinda peaks there and loses me afterwards.

BOTT is far superior imho.

just me but i think we are gonna look back at this album in 5 years time and say it was a classic!

I must say though after 1 listen i said blimey thats chilled out for kings of leon but once i had played it 5 or 6 times i was like this is the best album i have heard in years!

I've only listened to it a couple of time through, but I have to agree here with toscano. Because of the Times was *much* better. I'm kind of bummed; I was hoping this one would live up to the hype.

:meh:

Because of the Times and Aha Shake...they piss on this new album.

It's a shame, really. The songs just aren't there.

Really? This is my favorite album of the year. I've always liked the KOL, but never like this.
