Album Review: Youth & Young Manhood by Kings of Leon

Absolutly essential, Based on 1 Critic

The Guardian - 100
Based on rating 5/5

Sons of a preacher man and disciples of punk, the Kings of Leon are Tennessee boys who rejected their religious roots in favour of sex, drugs and old-fashioned rock'n'roll. Clinging to their retro influences with a toddler's tenacity, their debut is a Kerouac-styled, lust-propelled journey into emergent adulthood. Using and abusing passionate gospel, country sweetness and filthy guitar licks, the Kings of Leon are the kind of authentic, hairy rebels the Rolling Stones longed to be.
