Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

Band: KINGS OF LEON

Album: YOUTH & YOUNG MANHOOD – debut LP

Released: 7 July 2003 – 15 years ago

NME said: “There aren’t many guitar bands with such a clear cut line etched down the middle of their career as Kings Of Leon. Their first phase was all grotty garage and country shakedowns and the second – post 2004’s ‘Aha Shake Heartbreak’ – a raft of ambitious widdles, grandiose riffage and some seriously intense vibes. Some fans are loyal to the former and others to the latter, but whichever side of the fence you fall on, it’s hard to deny the sheer brilliance of their very first effort.” – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Red-hot rawk ‘n’ roll thunder from the bad-ass start to the shaking finish. An avalanche of nasty riffs, swirling hooks and filthy licks. Brawny shit!
