Kings of Leon Only by the Night VINYL



Only by the Night may have been the closest thing to a pitch-perfect album to drop in 2008. Granted, Tennessee’s band of brothers (and one first cousin) takes a turn for the heavily polished here, but what the album lacks in rough-edged raunch, it more than makes up for in earnestness, and yes stunning, beauty. From the opening notes of “Closer” to the listing balladry of “Cold Desert,” Only by the Night hardly misses a beat. Highlights abound, particularly in the trading off of melodic lines between instruments, and in this regard, bassist Jared Followill is the album’s quiet MVP. Above these gorgeous instrumentals, singer Caleb emotes with a dramatic grit that never loses its command. A model of melodic rock composition, arranged and produced with a warm, inviting veneer, and performed with aching sincerity, these 11 tracks coalesce into a sanguine whole that eclipses the band’s much-discussed rock posturing and yields more with every play.
