Product Description

Kings of Leon return with the release of their highly anticipated fourth album 'Only By The Night' on 22nd September through Columbia Records. 'Only By The Night' is a bold and expansive sonic statement that looks set to solidify Kings of Leon's position as one of the most important international acts of 2008 and beyond. It follows rapidly in the footsteps of the bands previous albums 'Youth And Young Manhood', 'Aha Shake Heartbreak' & 'Because Of The Times', which have quickly established them as one of the most prolific and acclaimed acts around.

I'm partial to the Southern jams and uptempo stuff that kicked off our relationship. These guys were breath of fresh air pickled with twang and moonshine when they launched Holy Roller Novocaine. This was a great start.

These boys were not content to rest idle on the twang groove... they step to new styles with each new album, and they do so with unmatched competence. Now - I'm not a fan loyal to a specific sound, I'm loyal to the talent and to the imagination they bring to the sounds they choose to explore.

If you're looking for Molly's Chambers, Knocked Up, My Party, Four Kicks, or California Waiting, you're definitely going to be disappointed. There are elements of those tunes on this album, but these elements don't define the experience. Instead, you'll see these new songs as a natural growth for the Followill Fellows.

The predominant flavour of the album is mood, a nice meandering jammy sticky sweet mood. The album is experimental yet accessible.

Reading some of the reviews, I see a lot of disappointment -- I hope you don't let that prevent you from discovering a solid album. It's a keeper -- I guarantee you that these hooks will stay strong for the next 5-10 years. This is something rarely accomplished by young bands these days, so take the risk and get the disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Night Music Oct. 30 2008
Format:Audio CD
Great album! For sure more slow jams than the last albums, but the don't call it "Only By the Night" for no good reason.
The quality of the sound is very good.
Worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best record of 2008? July 31 2009
Format:LP Record
Among the best records of 2008, if not the best. (Also listen to The Gaslight Anthem - "the 59 sound") This record brings the soul back to rock and roll.

Kings of Leon was on the verge of making this great record for a while, as their previous work dabbled more on the indie rock side of things. The songs just weren't there earlier in their career, no matter what the scenesters say.

This album is rock and roll, not no trendy indie crap. And that's why it's as good as it is. "Use Somebody" is an example, that track is timeless, and one of the few songs that will stand the test of time from this generation.

Grit, heart and soul is what makes this album better than the rest of rock and roll right now. It's unique, and it's honest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff! Sept. 27 2009
By Shell
Format:Audio CD
I was drawn to this group through "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody" and the unique lead vocals of Caleb Followill. Not being familiar with KOL's earlier releases, I was hesistant to buy this CD thinking those are probably the best two tracks and the remaining nine would be garbage, much like what you get with the junk that's out there these days. After taking a chance and buying it, the result has been a CD that's been listened to over and over again. The Followill boys have produced some decent tunes here! If you like "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody" at all, the CD won't disappoint.

I absolutely loved Only By The Night. I see it has some very bad reviews, but I'm not sure why. Its the kind of CD you can listen to over and over again. I would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Really are Kings June 29 2009
Format:Audio CD
The mix of homegrown Tennesee blues with modern grungy rock is a match made in music heaven. I didn't understand the hype behind these guys when "Sex is on Fire" was released. Until I picked up the album and gave it a listen. I was shocked and amazed at how good this album is. Sure their early work was different, but you don't need to be a hardcore Kings fan to enjoy this album. I look forward to there next offering.

Just really enjoyed this CD many of the songs I could relate too. I had listened to the album before when I downloaded it from iTunes. But my computer crashed so I needed to get the album again. Decided having the CD was the best option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something Missing ? Dec 25 2013
By Seeker
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I have 3 versions of this now. The CD which sounds terrible on my home system. The Control Group Vinyl which is better but still not great, and now the reissue from Music on Vinyl which is the best of the three. Still there is something about this recording that bugs me I can't quite put my finger on it. Some parts of the album sound more dynamic than others. Probably recorded and mixed in too many different places. Anyway get the Music On Vinyl version for best results and quieter vinyl.
