Is this what we call rock’ n’ roll these days? Or is it a pop song? I mean these guys fill up huge stadiums and have rock ambitions right? The song is catchy and dynamic, with booming guitars and a fast upbeat tempo behind Caleb Followill’s slightly broken vocals, and it sounds like the Counting Crows vaguely trying to imitating the Strokes,…. so it’s not that bad you’re gonna say? Yeah … if you like that kind of easy stuff which offers no surprise and doesn’t offer anything really new, stuff which will keep you right in the middle of your comfort zone like the purring of a cat. It’s very listenable, you may even tap your foot but, at the end, it sounds like a million things you have heard before and you smell the formulaic song before reaching the middle of it. I haven’t spent any time listening to Kings of Leon, but I get the feeling this one sums them all. And oh boy, these repetitive lyrics are so lazy! How many times do your want to hear ‘I take one in the temple? I take one for you’, before you effectively want to shoot Caleb in the head? – according to what I read, the song is about how he would take a bullet to the head for someone he loves.
‘Temple’ is a song off their new album ‘Mechanical Bull’, and curiously it wasn’t any of the two previously released singles. This sounds like a song (and probably an album) for people who think Mumford & Sons are too folky or for people who think drinking Red Bull is too edgy. Where is the pigeon poop when we need it?
