Kings Of Leon

Pistol Of Fire

Ye gods, what dark sorcery is this? Tennessee’s hairiest and New York’s parpiest? What crazed chimera will be born of this ill-advised union?

Well, you know what, by some musical-genetic miracle, it’s a bonny baby. Capturing the Kings when they were less epic and more septic, old Rono’s reworking adds a Southern-fried soul feel with a sticky sleaze far less wholesome and far more exciting than his usual efficient radio polish.
