Kings of Leon | Aha Shake Heartbreak
This is the best album I've heard in a long time. Well actually since Arcade Fire - Funeral, and before that TV on the Radio - Desperate Youth, Bloodthristy Babes. This one is up there though, a gem. These guys sound like the Rolling Stones ran over The Cars with with 2 models on board and a big bindle of cocaine. Their sound is raw with nasty lyrics to match about male impotence from long nights of partying, sex with groupies and girls lots of bald guy references (not sure I get that one). Did I mention that they can write a hook that will get caught in your head for days. And oh yeah, Caleb Followill might have the best voice in rock and roll of the 00's. I can't say enough about this album, I liked it upon first listen which made me think it would grow stale fast. BUT NO, 50+ listens in and I understand why the Brits (and U2) have been crowning them as the new "Kings" of rock n roll for two years now. If they keep maturing from album to album they way they have from their Youth and Young Manhood to this one, they will eventually replace the band they are opening for as the biggest name in rock and roll. Do yourself a favor and check out the Kings of Leon's Aha Shake Heartbreak. An addendum, the order of favorites on this album over the last 4 months has gone -> King of the Rodeo -> Milk-> Taper Jean Girl -> Bucket -> Soft. Yes, I'm 5 singles deep. Enjoy. -G$
