Kings of Leon

Kings of Leon,

 it is the ambiguous title of their first single in two years, apparently sticking to much the same principle. Guitars are drenched in reverb, bass riffs ooze and mould themselves around the drums, and the lyrics are as damp as they come.

"I don't mind sentimental girls at times/ Miss don't walk away/ Walk away." On balance, bassist Jared Followill's claim of the new album having a "vibe" comparable to that of the band's early work rings true enough, with Caleb's buzzsaw-paced rhythm guitar making a welcome comeback.
