BTW - do any of you slippery fucks have a copy of Frontier City? I made the mistake of buying the actual CD before I looked at iTunes. I'm not buying it twice.

this is gonna be No1 both sides of the atlantic at the same time! that takes some doing safe to say i think KIngs of Leon can now say they are right up the top as one of the biggest rock acts at the moment in the world!

Fair play though it is a fantastic album! they deserve it!

Whats the quote they have in the record industry:-

'You need to break America to make mega bucks but you need to break the UK to see whether your any good or not'

Well looks like they might have done both now!

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.
BOTT is great album. I thought this new album was going to have that Black Thumbnail/ Camero feel based off Crawl & Sex On Fire.

After listening I'm pretty dissappointed in the album.

Tracks 1-3, good order/vibe

Tracks 4-8 it feels the song never changes. I understand change is important for bands, but this group of songs are some of KOL worst.

I do enjoy tracks 9 (favorite) and 11 (great song). 10 does nothing for me.

Fleet Foxes or Evil Urges (MMJ) are still up for my album of the year by a long shot.

It's not fair to compare KOL to MMJ or FF or TVOTR. The latter are so indescribably ___________.

That said, I am having a hard time not absolutely loving the new KOL.

Anything else good happen next Tuesday while you were visiting in your Tardis ?

I mean, that IS when the US charts come out.....

FWIW it's only #5 on the Amazon sales list and #3 on the tower sales list, so maybe #1 isn't as much a gimme as you think here in the US.

And as for the UK charts telling you if you're any good, don't even go there..........there's been some pretty embarrassing stuff there....

that quote was not my quote! it was someone high up in the music industrybut can't remember who off the top off my head but i remember reading it in the Q magazine.

But the UK chart is a much better gauge for rock/indie bands to know whether your any good or not

That assumes that Sales = Good. Definitely not the case.

As for the Q magazine quote, you DO realize those things go to print weeks ago and they have no insight whatsoever as to what ACTUAL sales figures are like this week, not unless they used their Tardises also.....

As I said, the fact that those aren't the best selling albums at those online retailers is not a good sign for the album going to #1. It could though, we'll know Tuesday.

The quote 'You need to break america for mega bucks but you need to break the UK to see whether your any good or not' is not just about album sales i think the person who quoted this means bands that can sell out 20,000 tickets in less than an hour and bands who headline the main UK festivals etc that what they mean about breaking the UK

They sold 220,000 in its first week of sales here in the UK!

I can't believe it! ATYCLB only sold 160,000 on its first week here in UK and HTDAAB sold 180,000

That's a bit unfair. It's just a classic rock song: verse chorus verse chorus

Nothing wrong with that as long as it's good. Weezer has made a whole career out of it, and I Weezer!
