God they are cute

I know this album is a lot more pop and produced- but I cannot get enough of The End and Immortals. I don't even have a chance to get to know the rest of the album well yet cause those 2 just have me obsessed!

try listening to it from the middle( back down south). i dont know how but it sound more southern. i think too that by the time you get to the middle it starts to sound all the same on the first listen.

BATTLE OF THE HIPSTERS! KINGS OF LEON SLAMS ARCADE FIRE!

We're surprised that he had the gall to say this.
Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill recently took a cheap dig at the AMAZING band Arcade Fire in an interview when he essentially called them
famewhores!

He said:
“Now it's cool to have 14 people in your band doing everything but contributing musically, running around with a helmet on your head, hitting it with a drumstick. You gotta look at what you're in this for: the love of music? The fame? You can have all that if you're smart and play your cards right and don't become a dick."
Apparently, he's referencing something that bandmember Richard Parry has done in various performances.
We think that this is a pretty unjustified blow, especially considering that Arcade Fire has consistently put out three unbelievable albums and seem completely committed to their music as well as their listeners. Kings of Leon, on the other hand, have disrespected their fans by complaining about their mainstream popularity while simultaneously displaying diva behavior during gigs.
Inneresting, no?

what do you think?!?!

^I don't even know who Arcade Fire are All I know is that Nathan already apologized for that comment on his Twitter. I really couldn't care less about all that KOL gossip stuff. KOL have always said weird things in interview, they keep contradicting themselves so I can't take them too seriously anyway.

But I don't see anything wrong in Nathan stating his opinion, it's just that now that they're super-famous everything gets blown out of proportion and he should have done it without mentioning other bands. But he's hardly the only one to do that. Oh and by calling KOL hipsters is Perez trying to diss them, too?

You do not know Arcade Fire

I agree, they allways say wierd things but sometimes it just makes them sound stupid. Altough it must be part of their sense of humor and trying to be bit bad*ss...
Anyway, I like them but I absolutely adore Arcade Fire

^^I agree

Arcade Fire is an amazing band whose music is pure genius.
God I hope Nathan didn't say something that arrogantly stupid. For a band who say that they only ever wanted to be respected as musicians to turn around and say something so disrespectful about true artists really turns me off. Here's hoping Perez sources are as unreliable as always or Nathan was completely buzzed out of his mind when he say that.

i dont even understand how that quote exemplifies famewhoring. the quote is literally surrounded by other people's opinions and their interpretation of the quote.

I think Arcade Fire can come off as the sort of 'pretentious indie rockers' upon first impressions..but I am a fan of their music and imo - they are quite dedicated to their music. I don't know where the comment is coming from.. but it's probably just taken way off context. KOL's and their styles are completely different anyway . Musicians comment on each other all the time though and they're entitled to their opinions.. justified or not. Don't we all ?
