Kings Of Leon – Walls

      Matt Collar : ‘On their seventh studio album, 2016’s WALLS, Kings of Leon clearly attempt to crack the surface of that codified shell, hunkering down in Los Angeles with producer Markus Dravs (Florence + the Machine, Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons), purportedly taking a looser, less critical approach to recording. The result is an album that does feel less claustrophobic than previous efforts, with a lean aesthetic that straddles the gaps between classic Tom Petty, ’80s Fleetwood Mac, and more contemporary acts like Arcade Fire. It’s a brief album, clocking ten songs in just over 40 minutes. There’s also a handful of catchy, pulse-pounding cuts here like sanguinely ecstatic “Find Me” and the swaggeringly heavy-browed “Reverend,” both of which find lead singer Caleb Followill retaining his position as the band’s biggest asset; his emotive southern yawp rife with poetry and lyricism.  …. Ultimately, with WALLS, Kings of Leon have struck a nice balance between the garage band passion of their early work, and the large scale bombast that made them stars.’
