Kings of Leon: Because of the Times
Buy! - (RCA)
The eccentric Nashville rockers continue to stretch out on their 3rd album, which is easily their most ambitious and diverse to date, and also their best. The band sounds more confident than ever on a wide variety of great songs ranging from punkish blasts of noisy pop and propulsive post-punk to epic guitar rock jams and even some poignant, beautifully crafted ballads. While some folks tried to tag them before as the southern Strokes, they sound here like a great modern rock band steeped in the classics, but now fully coming into their own. 3/29/2007 - Don Yates
