Sound — 10
Ever since I've heard their single, "The Bucket" and "Four Kicks," I knew I was gonna like this band. So I went to the music store and picked this up and all I have to say is wow. I'm really impressed with this CD and their overall sound. Their sound is mellow garage type with a little funky attitude placed in it.

The frontman Caleb Followill voice is very different from what you hear. He sounds a little weird at first but when I heard the whole album I thought he's a pretty good lyricist. Caleb makes catchy rhyming schemes and funny lyrics, like "Four Kicks" which is about some bar fight. He sounds calm during the whole album and with a good rhythm to it.
Overall Impression — 8
Compared to the other garage bands like The Strokes, The Hives and all of them, Kings Of Leon is my favorite. They're one of a kind and I don't think no one else can compare to or be like them. Songs that I especially liked in this album are "King Of The Rodeo," "Taper Jean Girl," "Soft," "Velvet Snow" and "Four Kicks." If this album were lost of stolen I would definitely buy it again. Aha Shake Heartbreak was totally worth the money and I'm happy with it.
