Kings of Leon: Aha Shake Heartbreak
Buy! - (RCA)
This Nashville-based band branches out a bit more on their second album, though many of the highlights still recall the metronomic jangle-rock of the Strokes filtered through a more classic-rock sensibility. Still, the band works in quite a few more influences this time, from dark ‘80s post-punk to atmospheric folk-rock. While the lyrics often range from bizarre to just plain disturbing, the songs are more musically ambitious than the primitive charmers on their debut, and the band has gelled into one tight, potent unit. 1/3/2005 - Don Yates
