Their best album by far I would say. "The Bucket" and "Slow night, so long" are my favorite songs that they have done. Shame KOL sold out so badly. In my mind they are still the band that made this album. I try to filter out that Reading performance and the fact that they are on "Now that's what I call music 73". £3 is a bargain, though!

The set was going badly so Caleb had a strop and complained that the audience were not making enough noise. He did the rest of the show with the bare minimum of effort. It was a diva display that would be more fitting if Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston did it, not from a rock band that weren't selling out venues 5 years ago. I don't think that is even fair to Whitney or Mariah. At least they make an effort with their shows. It is the rock fans in the U.K that made KOL so it is pretty disrespectful to bitch at them because they don't like your pop songs.

from wikipedia
"Kings of Leon caused minor controversy at the 2009 Reading Festival when Caleb Followill tried to get the crowd going by asking "I thought this was supposed to be the loudest crowd in the world?" Picking up on a perceived hostility towards the band, he announced "we know you're sick of Kings of Leon, so for all those who don't give a f*ck about us, I understand. But we've worked f*cking hard to get here. So anyone that has anything to say to us, f*ck you. We're the goddamn Kings of Leon." The band later smashed their guitars in anger and made rude gestures before leaving the stage."

Who says that to a crowd? Can you imagine Muse or The Flaming Lips doing that? They would work twice as hard to get the crowd back on side. Play some sing-alongs or something.

That was a bit of a rant but I think it is symptomatic of the fame going to their heads. The first two albums are so good that it is just depressing.

Interesting. I drove from Bristol to see them in Swindon only 3 years ago and that was at a gig in a Sports Hall! That was awesome but I suspect that they are so tired of touring and playing pop songs they'd otherwise not have written, that they are now a bit sh1t live.
