I recently wrote a retrospective review of Kings of Leon’s third album Because of the Times, as part of Vulture Hound’s 10 Albums at 10 series. As you can probably guess it takes a look at ten albums from ten years ago, my choice being a Kings of Leon classic, with the likes of ‘Knocked Up’ and ‘Charmer’ on the track-list.
Though I listen to this album fairly frequently, I initially found it a little difficult to evaluate. I quickly realised that the first three tracks are the ones that stand out to me, and after that, the album just slipped into the back of the mind. Nevertheless, it’s a romantic little record and I really enjoyed revisiting it yet again.
