Kings of Leon – Crawl

This is quite ‘heavy’. A nice big heavy, distorted to breaking point bassline sets the pace and tone of the song. With some nice thunderous drums in support. Then some crunchy guitar layering over the top before Caleb comes in sing.

It’s the same sort of big venue conquering stadium rock with a garage rock/Southern Rock’n Roll twist to it. The refrain/chorus of ‘You better learn to Crawl’ is a bit poor in comparision and the song doesn’t seem to go anywhere in terms of melody progression. Like Beck’s Vampire Voltage the guitar solo at the end could do with being a bit longer, but maybe that’s just my indulgent Pink Floyd/Led Zeppelin fan speaking.

A good start to matching the greatness of Because of the Times nonetheless.
