Yeh, KOL are great. New album seems cool. Aha Shake Heartbreak is amazing. Nearly very songs could have been a single! Don't know why they got such a hard time here. It seems that many U2 fans preferred seeing Keane and similar rubbish to KOL on the Vertigo Tour.

I'm digging the new album. It's different for them.

America's finest band at the moment for me. 3 top drawer albums out of 3. Perhaps this will be the album where they finally make it big in their native land.

It's on my Target list for tomorrow. I'm too tired tonight after driving back from Grand Canyon.

I've always been impressed by how much KOL has evolved between albums. The songs that appeared on both their debut EP and on Youth and Young Manhood are so much better on the album, and Aha Shake Heartbreak was even better. They're not afraid to reinvent themselves and to grow and change, and I think that will give them staying power.

This album is taking a little longer to grow on me, but after listening to it all again this morning, I'm getting more into it. It's a really different sound from their previous work, but I'm loving the guitars

I think that would be a better venue to see them in than the big arenas that they played with U2.

To me, they sounded fine on the radio, but in the arenas he really did sound like "Dave Matthews getting ripped apart by wolverines" (I love that line) .

My favs:

On Call
McFearless
Black Thumbnail (savage, fucking savage tune)
True Love Way
Ragoo
Fans
Arizona (KOL do epic rock?)

Really good stuff. The Cletus who sings is learning how to use his voice, and the guitar player, well, he's fantastic.

And there hanging all that on some nice, surprising affecting songs.

I miss the backwoods boogie thing, but this is a nice step for them.

I agree with ya, Edge influence is all over this record.

Yeah but they aren't originally from Nashville or the area, just went there to get signed. They are all from a small town in Oklahoma.
