The Kings Of Leon: Only By The Night

The Kings of Leon seem to be building on their solid musical foundation as I have found each of their albums to be better than their last. As this is now their 5th studio album and the first one was pretty good, then by applying some simple logic we can deduce that this must be a damn fine album. Album opener, “Closer” has the distinctive vocals accompanied by a pulsating siren sound behind which a noise of guitars gradually cranks up. The album continues with “Crawl” and its mix of heavily distorted fuzzy guitars with crisp overlays and rhythm section. “17” kicks of like a Christmas single with its chiming bells but soon settles down into the habitual Kings of Leon sound.
