Gordon has a first listen to the new Kings Of Leon album, which is trailed, oddly, as
First listen to musical new albumMusical? Is it really? I had so been expecting another spoken-word one. Or perhaps Gordon was fearing that they might have put together an industrial noise record?
Gordon doesn't really have very much to say about the record, and what he does say is a bit vague:
The new songs have "No1 hit" written all over them.To me, that sounds like it's a hotch-potch. Although to be honest, I'm not really expecting the "chilled-out numbers" to be anything other than slightly more plodding Kings Of Leon tracks.
There's something for everyone - classic rock, chilled-out numbers and anthemic epics.
As he can't really think of much to say about the record, he instead files a 'what I did on my holidays' sort of piece:
My listen to the precious new album, out on October 18, took place in dramatic secrecy.Fancy someone from The Sun not being trusted with secret materials.
Sitting at their label HQ, I wasn't allowed the full track listing, nor could I look at or handle the promo CD - which was removed from a safe and escorted into a locked room.
Gordon also has a go at trying to turn 'Bono hangs out with Bob Geldof's dad' into a story. It isn't one.
