Kings Of Leon released their seventh studio, 10-track album “WALLS” on Oct. 14.
“Walls” is a collaboration of calming acoustic guitar and a lead singer Caleb’s soulful voice, creating plaintive feelings throughout a slow tempo.
“I really liked the song ‘Walls’ by Kings of Leon, even though it made me feel depressed,” said student Marissa Ramiret.
“It has a nice, slow rhythmic beat and peaceful message,” continued Ramiret.
“Waste A Moment,” is suggestive of their first single released “Sex On Fire”. They both have similar tempo and melody.
“Around The World” entices listeners to dance with the reggae rhythmic drum sounds and lively harmony. The music video shows different landscape and traditional performances of different countries around the world.
“Find Me” which is a fantastic ensemble combined with a powerful beat, an intensive sound of drums and electronic guitar sound creates an image of a living room filled with countless balloons, snacks and beverages.
“’Find me’ evokes a sense of happiness and relaxation. I love putting that song on when I drive home from school or when I’m driving to Los Angeles,” said alternative pop aficionado Claudia Avila.Move this sentence up after the first sentence about “Find Me”. Out of place
Through a reinvented sound and style, Kings of Leon provides a rhythmical sense and impressive flow.
“Kings of Leon wasn’t really my favorite band, but they are slowly growing on me. Their albums, ‘Only by the Night’ and ‘Walls’ have been on a constant loop since the group both have songs that make driving less painful,” said Claudia.
