Kings of Leon delivers big in magical fashion, releasing their new album Mechanical Bull September 24th.
The deluxe version features thirteen new classics, an epic work of art that blends sounds of their early hits with the magic of Come Around Sundown.
In the opening track and single “Supersoaker,” this quartet creates a brilliant composition complete with catchy hooks, delightful vocals and a riveting backing section of bass and drums.
The album is chocked full of great music, as the band intended to deliver their best, giving their fans a
kind of “greatest hits”- like album this fall after they went through some demons and shortcomings during their 2011 tour.
Perhaps with songs like “Beautiful War,” the haunting “Don’t Matter” and the endearing “Last Mile Home” to close, Kings of Leon is at their strongest-four brothers who endured together in faith and
resilience. “Temple” is a gorgeous piece of music, featuring inside the melody glimpses of the great band The Strokes.
A landmark album in cinematic scope and sonic depth, the Kings of Leon always seem to excel and succeed at churning out an appealing album with that trademark sound the world over has come to know and love.
A world renowned band, Kings of Leon faced personal struggles and pitfalls during their 2011 tour. This record shows the growth they’ve found. With delight and reassurance we find this group to be a maturer, older, wiser Kings of Leon. Surely this quartet will conquer the states and the world as they unleash their messages through song on tour.
A riveting effort, Kings of Leon has recaptured the essence and passion of their legendary early work. The record as a whole plays with soaring spirit and power from start to finish. One can find great joy and peace in hearing Mechanical Bull. The angelic “Wait for Me” depicts the makeup of a theme they perhaps have stressed, writing music that helps the listeners discover hope.
