2008 In Music: Kings of Leon

These songs embed themselves in my soul more each time I listen, and in my book that's a damn fine album.

My next installment - Kings of Leon's Only By The Night. What can I add that hasn't already been written by others? This is one band where I definitely agree with the majority, popular opinion - they are fantastic (even though they were nominated for a Grammy :) Only By The Night is a real creeper. The first time I listened, I thought, "Eh, it's alright but not as good as the last one." Then it snuck up on me - BAM - and I wanted to hear it everyday. Even the massive amount of radio play hasn't turned me off yet, so that's saying something.

I too love these guys! Great stuff here. Different stuff. I really like what they are doing.

Had to laugh out loud at your "even if they were nominated for a Grammy" comment. haha ;)

The Grammys are such a sham these days! Haha. These guys are awesome. I'm glad I got to see them a few years back before they became huge rockstars.

I saw 'em about this same time last year. Great show. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club opened.
