The Words to Transpire

Kings of Leon – Only by the Night

The Kings are back just over a year since their last album, Because of the Times, with another release.  According to Peter, Nathan Followill beat up his brother Caleb at some point in time.  While Caleb was recovering, he took painkillers which inspired him to write what he calls some of his best songs.  Knowing that and having enjoyed the songs I had heard, I came into Only by the Night anticipating quite a lot.
This album rocks a lot harder than Because of the Times, with a huge sound and lots of catchy riffs.  The band deliver a big, stadium-filling feel to it.  But it has the same problem that their last album did, it starts out really strongly, but can’t deliver a proper climax.
The first half of Only by the Night is incredible.  “Closer” starts things off really well.  “Crawl” rocks your socks off.  “Sex on Fire” is really catchy.  “Use Somebody” evokes the ’80s power ballad.  After that, it gradually goes downhill in quality.  “Manhattan,” “Revelry,” “17,” they’re all fine tracks, just not as strong as the first few.
With Only by the Night the Kings of Leon have put together another strong release.  One of 2008’s best.  If they were able to achieve so much in just over a year, I can’t wait to see what they can do next, hopefully when they spend a little more time on an album.
Favorite Tracks: “Closer,” “Crawl,” “Sex on Fire”
