I saw KOL open for U2 and they were loud and they scared me.

I like U2 more.

I listened to Because Of The Times for the first time today. It's very good and they deserved the nomination.

Have you listened to their albums? I saw them with U2 and thought they sucked too. The albums are much better.

albums don't necessarily always do it for me.. it's seeing them LIVE is what counts..

They played way too loud and had too many guitars when I saw them; I didn't know what to think quite honestly

Most of my friends who saw KOL open up for them thought they sucked big time, said stuff like worst band ever and stuff.

I personally enjoyed them quite a bit, but I don't think I'll ever buy one of their albums.

Count me in the group who likes them on album but found them a bit ear-piercing live. Although I found when I was in GA, they weren't as painful as when I had an actual seat. Weird.

I didn't much care for their latest album.

they are a rock n roll band however in the truest sense of the phrase. anyone expecting "where the streets have no name" shenanigans from them will be largely disappointed.

their sound isn't really suited to arena's and that's why i think they didn't exactly go down a storm during the supporting U2 slots. i saw them this year at 2000 capacity venue and i got right to the front. it was loud, dirty, sweaty and brilliant. best gig ive been to

I saw KOL at the 2006 Big Day Out and thought they were pretty decent live. I'm pretty mmeh on them though, mostly because their lead singer's voice puts me off.

Too loud and too many guitars?

That's like complainig "The party had too much good beer, and too many hot, naked, loose chicks."

How old is your soul?

There's a good kind of too loud, and there's the kind of too loud that makes your ears bleed.
