The MJ Show #34 (Kings Of Leon - Only By Night)

The last time I gave you a chance to listen to a complete album right here was with John Mayer's "Battle Studies".
The reason I gave you all the songs is because I think it's one of the few "albums" these days that you can enjoy COMPLETELY. From the first song to the last song! There are so few few brilliant complete albums these days. This is what makes such a show concept a rarity when I'm talking about new artists.
Old artists, I could give your hundreds of complete albums and I will do that as well, like I did with ACDC's Back In Black but when I find a new artist with a GREAT album...it's really exciting.
These are the albums you really should go out and pick up...and not listen to just the single that is promoted on tv or radio. I would encourage you to listen to the whole album from the start to the end. It's the only real way to show respect to the artists and bands who put in the effort to make the whole album brilliant...and not just one or two songs.

Today, I have one such album for you.
The album I'm talking about is the last Kings Of Leon album. It's called "Only By The Night" and it is absolutely astounding!!

Kings of Leon is an American rock band that formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1999, consisting of brothers Anthony Caleb Followill (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Ivan Nathan Followill (drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Michael Jared Followill (bass guitar, backing vocals), with their cousin Cameron Matthew Followill (lead guitar, backing vocals). Each member of the family group is known by his middle name (second given name) as opposed to his first given name.

Let me take you through the songs on this album and then you decide for yourself if I've got a "hot one" or if it's just all hype :)
Here we go...

1st Song - Kings Of Leon - Closer #TheMJshow

5th Song - Kings Of Leon - Manhattan #TheMJshow


This next one's for a brilliant Indian rocker and I'm quite pleased to say that my band has opened for his band once :) I'm talking about one of the most ass kicking Indian bands - Pentagram and of their singer Vishal Dadlani better known these days on twitter as @V1SH4L. I saw a tweet of his saying that this is a great song to start off a morning...and so I checked out the song. And I agree with Vishal...this is a BRILLIANT way to kick off a day.
Another incredible song on this album! :)
