I care, Jason, I really do. And what's more is that I'm going to see them at the end of May in Cincy with H, Em, and Grant. Anyone else who wants to come better come. Albert Hammond Jr. is opening for them, so I guess Dan won't be showing up.

I've had it for a little while now. It's pleasurable to listen to.

I'm planning on going to the show at the Vogue in Indy; Cincy's a bit far for me. I'm totally jazzed about that new Albert Hammond Jr. album, dude!

I've had "On Call" for a while and love it. Rolling Stone gave it 4 stars, too. Not like that matter one little bit, though!

i just realized that i wouldnt have work or class on the date of the cincinatti show so i started to get all excited. then i map quested it and found that i was 11 hours away. might as well check 'em out in London.

I'm supervising in school suspension today. Maybe the kids and I will preview it together.

I'm starting to think that I should care...I remember listening to "Molly's Chamber" while I worked in the Electronics dept at Muncie's Target (shudder), and thinking it was really good rock...Tell me though--what album should I buy if there is only one chance for Kings of Leon to be loved?

tim, i'd say "aha shake heartbreak" though "youth and young manhood" is also incredible. There are sections on "youth," though, where it is very apparent that its their first record. "aha" is more developed musically and more bold lyrically. it seems on that record they have decided what kind of band they are and what they are gonna sing about and stuck with it. man, all of a sudden all the wreckless upbeat punchy jams on "youth" are floating in my head and i want to change my mind. both are great. maybe just buy the new one. then the other two later.
