Kings of Leon have a daunting task. They have to follow-up a monster successful album and tour without a lot of time to prepare. Even though the guys seem up for the challenge, the overall album will disappoint fans of their Only By The Night album. There is no “Sex On Fire” or “Use Somebody” in this album, in fact, there aren’t really any hits in it at all. It sounds more like a poorly produced garage band jam session than a polished sound they’ve previously put out. There are a few exceptions to this. The songs “Birthday” and “Beach Side” got my attention in a good way. I had high expectations for this album but was sadly let down. If you like the album be sure to grab your copy when it comes out on October 19th. Check out all the tracks below.
