Apr 25, 2008 - think on Kings of Leon
Kings Rock!

Great Band and some feel good music. Live performance is awesome.

Apr 07, 2008 - supermatt on Kings of Leon
Huge Fan!

Tried to see them in LA with Bob Dylan but got lost and missed them. I would reccommend them to anyone.

Feb 29, 2008 - YogiBear on Kanye West
Impressively Clever Lyrics!

The beat to Kanye West's music is always pretty catchy and easy to get into, but if you listen carefully to his lyrics - you'll find that they are ingenious! He refers to the most random, yet clever topics/themes -- a lot of them with interesting sociological references. He's definitely an artist that's honing his craft.
