What on earth happened?  I have advocated... no, actually I have celebrated and ranted about my Nashville Boys since they burst onto the scene seven years ago.  Where has the gritty country twang gone to?

With each album it seems the Kings of Leon have watered down their Johnny Cash Grit 'n' Spit for a mainstream cache of ever acceptable blandness.  "Use Somebody" undoubtedly utilises Caleb's sexual yelps and howls and will make a drunken stadium more than happy, but let's face it - the song is all mouth and no trousers.

Some call it selling out [coughs] but others want fame and riches for their favourite bands - and it seems whilst Muse made their stadium album bigger and better than ever before, the Kings air-brushed their quirks for the "greater good".

It is a sad day for the die-hard fans who worship their back catalogue.  Perhaps they lost their essence when they cut their hair... Grow it out boys and get back on the 'trani' wagon!
