    If you have enjoyed the last 2 albums by Kings of Leon, then you'll probably find pleasure in this as well. Cold War Kids are not a bad band and that's why this album is so disappointing.

    If you're going to have your producer recreate all the same sounds as the last record he produced, you should probably write some killer hooks to set you apart. Instead, this album just wreaks of KoL's new arena / beach frat stench, leaving behind the sonic magic of Cold War Kids' past records. Horribly boring sounds. God awful lyrics. Maybe they can all buy a big house and a hummer now- I'll rent a bulldozer to destroy this record. Expand

    What the hell happened?!?! I mean.......seriously, what the hell just happened?!?!? This can't be the Cold War Kids. This is the freaking Kings of Leon with a better singer. Awful. Pantently, mesmerizingly, stupefyingly awful. Someone ship this producer off to the south Pacific or something. He's ruining perfectly good bands.

    For better or worse, this album is polished and mature -- words that never would have described Cold War Kids' music before.

    Former soul-punks return with rough edges removed and hearts on sleeves. [Feb. 2011, p. 99]

    After uniting with Kings of Leon/Modest Mouse vet Jacquire King, the band has emerged with a set that's more inviting than its first but just as catchy.
