Overview

While few of the songs on Come Around Sundown are as blatantly commercial as Only by the Night's "Use Somebody," the track list is still filled with super-sized, guitar-driven, modern rock pomp. Kings of Leon are acutely aware that loud, booming anthems are the best way to fill a stadium, and Come Around Sundown is engineered to sound as immense as possible. Nowhere is this more evident than in Caleb Followill's choruses, which emphasize sustained high notes, and Matthew Followill's guitar lines, which split their time between moody textures and cyclic, reverb-heavy riffs. The few diversions from that template are some of the album's best moments, but "Use Somebody" has become the band's benchmark, and most of this album is in that same commercial vein.
