|Sex On Fire|
|Lay where you're laying Don't make a sound I know they're watching They're watching All the commotion The kiddie like play Has people...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
The dreamy 'Cold Desert' is the perfect maudlin end to this short, sharp, 42-minute, no-filler album, revelling in every miserable blues-rocker cliché as Matthew's guitar goes all shoegazey and then briefly threatens to turn the whole thing into a 'Purple Rain' wig-out.
MojoOnly By The Night is best viewed as a transitional record from a band who have quite literally done their growing up in public. [Oct 2008, p.98]
ChKSep 23, 2008Pure greatness. It's almost as good as their debut.
MattL.Sep 30, 2008Sex on Fire, Be Somebody, Manhattan, Notion, I Want You, and Be Somebody are good.
Oct 11, 2013Simply brilliant. All of the band's albums before this were genius and nothing has changed. Only by the Night is diverse and unique. EachSimply brilliant. All of the band's albums before this were genius and nothing has changed. Only by the Night is diverse and unique. Each track is totally different and it will be known as one of the best rock albums of our generation. It's truly one of the best albums I have ever heard by one of the best bands I have ever heard. Well done, Kings of Leon. My favorite tracks are Be Somebody, Closer, Crawl, Notion, Cold Desert and Revelry.… Expand

BrianBJul 23, 2009When you consider their their first 2 records, this is a zero. But rating it against the field, I still have to give it some credit, there When you consider their their first 2 records, this is a zero. But rating it against the field, I still have to give it some credit, there are 3 or 4 songs I don't mind listening to. I call this record their "get laid and paid in America" record. Because that's all it's good for. Congratulations guys, you were my favorite band, and now you have 10x as many fans but they are all douche bags. So disappointing. Y&YM remains one of the greatest albums EVER!… Expand
