Kings of Leon - A-Ha Shake HeartbreakThey came on like cartoon hillbillies, rural Ramones, with each member sharing the same last name. Only the Kings of Leon were for real: three bearded brothers—sons of a southern preacher man—and their cousin. The band’s rowdy debut, Youth and Young Manhood, drew favorable comparisons to Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers. The group’s followup is even better, with raw, adventurous tracks like the frenetic “Slow Night, So Long,” the gorgeous “Milk” and the wacky “Razz.” A wild and wooly gem.
