Kings of Leon

The new Kings of Leon album, "Only By the Night," came out today. I've already listened to it about 5 times in my car and I love it. It's quite a departure from their previous three albums. There are no "Four Kicks" or "Red Morning Light" type songs. The whole album goes along at a slower, more deliberate pace. KOL sounds grown up. I miss the hoarse, random yelps and would like a few more up-tempo songs, but the album is great. Here's a live performance of "Use Someone" (I'm not as crazy about their single, so I didn't post their first music video).

They are coming to Chicago on Reformation Day, can't wait.

my guess is that we'll be the only people at the concert who are calling the day "Reformation Day"

Not everyone celebrates Reformation Day? This is very upsetting information.
