Kings of Leon - Walls, album review

The Mechanics of a Recliner

The recliner is sprawled backwards fully, the band's feet resting above cushions on the front riser. It is a comfortable and cosy position. Benny Golson [see previous] has history for his residing in the zone, and Kings of Leon are fine furniture enough for this slight revamp of the lounge. What I miss, for example, is a track like Don't Matter from their previous Mechanical Bull where at least one raw and thudding song breaks through the norm of anthemic familiars, like classic example and opener Waste a Moment, and balladic additionals, like the fine closer WALLS.
