Youth & Young Manhood by Kings Of Leon

"The worst debut album of the last 50 years". That was our (ok my) review of Kings of Leon debut back in 2006. But just as Blueshammer have a bigger audience than Skip James, these Nashville brothers brand of punky Southern boogie did something to catch the ear of listeners everywhere and are now one of the biggest bands on the planet. Whoda' thunk?

NME review: - "the best debut album of the last 10 years' 9/10.
Our review:- " the worst debut album of the last 50 years" 0/10

Go to any bar, anywhere and hear this kind of stale rubbish. If anyone's seen the film Ghost World then the word 'Blueshammer' sums this album up rather accurately. Incredibly, incredibly bad beyond belief. Not one glimmer of any kind of idea, melody or anything....just.....nothing......blues rock of the dullest sort, out of tune singing(!) completely hopeless. What is the world coming to? (Fuckin' bad pub rock. Unbelievable!! x Brian)
