Kings Of Leon Are Ancient History

Or not... I feel like it was a bajillion years ago that Billy & I were rocking out to Youth & Young Manhood & then Aha Shake Heartbreak, which were both so fresh & energetic. By the time Because Of The Times rolled around, to be honest, we were kinda over it. Not that that album and the subsequent Only By The Night were bad, it's just that they started to sound a little too slick. I guess we just like stuff better when it's raw. So, it's really weird now & kinda seems like a delayed reaction to see them finally coming to prominence in the mainstream. I mean, it doesn't get more mainstream than a morning performance on the Today show...
