About this item
Kings of Leon burst onto the music scene in 2003 and were (bizarrely, from this vantage point) lazily compared to TheStrokes. Something to do with youthful exhuberance, perhaps, but the similarities end there. Here was a preacher raised band of (literal!) brothers, hell bent on bringing Southern, good-time rock'n'roll back onto the radio and into our hearts. They had the bar-band groove, a cool as you like attitude, but most importantly some massive pop songs to help them stake their claim. It was thrilling debut.
Andy says: Superb debut which brought country-rockin, Southrn-frazzled booginess right back into the mainstream.
