RR44 Kings of Leon – Youth & Young Manhood

(Originally released to Patrons via https://www.patreon.com/riotactpodcast on 1st October 2020)

Steve and Remfry head back to 2003, to a time when Southern Indie rock quartet Kings of Leon weren’t a boring band … or maybe they were? Thanks to Michael Perry, who suggested we cover the band’s debut album (although kindly, he gave us the choice between this and the band’s 2004 follow-up Aha Shake Heartbreak).

17 years on, does the album live up to the ***** reviews and proclamation in The Village Voice that Youth and Young Manhood was “2003’s finest rock debut?
