Top 10 Records Of 2007 - Number 1
I wrote a long post extolling the virtues of my top pick, Because Of The Times, by Kings Of Leon, on the flight from Melbourne to Cairns, but its stuck on my laptop as there's no Internet service here in Dunk Island.
But there's good cell coverage so I am posting this from my blackberry.
Because Of The Times is the third stellar record in a row from the best young american rock band. And I mean rock band. These Followhill kids (yes KOL is a family act) deliver the kind of roots based rock and roll that launched the art form back in the late 50s/early 60s. Their sound is a bit more modern, but they've got the basics down
Top tracks include On Call, Ragoo, Fans, and Arizona.
I wish I could post some music for you all to sample but you'll just have to head over the the hype machine (hypem.com) and search for kings of leon and hit play and turn it up loud
