And really it is not a bias with their band name :)
I like some good old Southern Rock sometimes (Creedance anyone?) but this latest album has me listening at least once everyday with a song or two on my commute. Maybe their old fans won't like this "new" Kings of Leon (I call it improved), but it sure has gained them a whole lot more popularity in the States. Personally, I like this sort of arena rock thing they got going on now.
I am into them so much that we are going to see them in concert next week. This really will be my first "rock" concert and it is at a venue that is basically standing room only....Rock on!
