The 2012 Kings of Leon anthology Early Albums Box is an all-vinyl LP collection that includes the band's first three albums, as well as a fourth disc of rarities. Included is 2003's Youth & Young Manhood, 2005's A-Ha Shake Heartbreak, and 2007's Because of the Times. These are the band's formative works that found them moving from a punk and garage rock-sounding outfit to the more sophisticated and anthemic alt-rock band they would become. In some ways, Kings of Leon's 2008 breakout album, Only by the Night (not included here), and the accompanying hit single, "Sex on Fire" (also not included), were a new beginning for Kings of Leon that found them entering an era of worldwide fame. With Early Albums Box, fans get everything that came before that explosion gathered into one thoughtfully compiled set perfect for vinyl fanatics. Featured here are such cuts as "California Waiting," "Molly's Chambers," "Bucket," "Charmer," and others.
