10 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

An album of moody, moonlit arena rock from the Followill clan. WALLS revisits the anthemic heights of their 2008 breakthrough—Only By The Night—while also showcasing a side of the band that’s often been obscured by bluster. You can hear it best in the “No Surprises”-like shimmer of “Conversation Piece” and feel it in the dark imagery of “Over,” a convincing, six-minute reflection on death and fame.

WOW

Been a fan for long time, listened to new song and love it. Sound is great, song is great, band is on their game.
Looking forward to release of entire CD.

Top Notch

There seems to be two camps on KOL. Those that feel that everything has gone down hill since their first raw, underproduced (and amazing) first album. And those that love the band and will support their music no matter what. I'm of the latter. I still think the first record will always be their best but each new album is a gift from arguably one of the greatest bands of their generation. Having listened to the new album a few times, without knowing for sure, it sure seems that the lyrics and tone indicate a love letter diary entry of sorts to themselves, reminiscing about how far they've come, the struggles and personal turmoil they've had within the band ("Over"), the desire to hash out and find again what made them amazing in the first place ("Conversation Piece") and a renewed commitment to being the best band in the world ("Walls").

Ditch This Producer!

I've been a Kings Of Leon fan for quite some time and I have rolled with the changes throughout and they've been exciting and enjoyable. I guess I made the mistake of listening to all of these songs when they played the album in its entirety live last week. The album just sounds FLAT. Either the producer or the engineer completely dropped the ball on the mix. "Over" sounds awesome live but on the album Matthews guitar doesn't sound like its cutting through glass at all. It's just muffled and almost sounds like a bass guitar. "Eyes on you" is played much slower on the album and Calebs raspiness that the song calls for is buried back in the mix. I mean it's borderline infuriating. Caleb's voice makes you guys unique. He should be front and center, not buried, and not washed with effects. The songs are there! Please guys, reconsider who is producing on the next album. If your thinking of going with Dravs again - don't!
