We Know It’s Only Rock N’ Roll But We Like It

OF YOUTH AND YOUNG MANHOOD: Kings Of Leon, Electric Factory, Last Night

EVA SAYS: When the Brothers Followill arrived on stage wearing jeans so tight they made even the hormonal 16-year-olds blush, I was skeptical. Admittedly a little flushed as well, but skeptical nonetheless. (I mean, if I wanna watch bone smugglers in painted-on Wranglers, I’ll go to The Cave, right?) But as soon as the drummer kicked in with the throw-me-down-and-fuck-me beat to “Taper Jean Girl,” and Caleb opened his mouth and out came that sweet, snarling whine — well, I was bouncing right along with the all the other drunk dolls around me. Until the ballads. They made me sleepy. Message to Dudes Of Leon: Stick with The Rock. Your ballads are a snore. Also, the pants are ridiculous. B+
