    Soulful indeed. They have some other great songs as well. I caught on to them through Pandora Radio out of all places. :)

    been listening to their last album for months. very good band. did'nt like some of their earlier stuff as the singer grated a bit, but he is maturing vocally.

    Ya, all of the newest stuff is really great, I have not heard much of there older stuff. I just caught on to these guys about a week ago.

    I frequently listen to Pandora Radio while surfing the net and when this song popped up I was like this band is awesome and been listening to them ever since.

    Glad to see I'm not the only guy here who enjoys there music.

    I listen to everything from norah jones/Diana Krall to killswitch engage/machine head. keeps the mind active I think if you challenge it with different genres.

    been really enjoying some sigur ros lately - not something I would listen to often, but at night when im trying to chill out in bed really quite hypnotic.

    I revert to Mike Oldfield quite often, guess im showing my age but how can you not be impressed by someone who plays over 100 instruments - he creates some clever instrumental music. the 3 lunas album is very special (and a great test of speakers).

    I ripped all my CD's recently and between those and my downloads ive over 40,000 Mp3s. :duh:

    I listen to pretty much everything as well from the heaviest going to folk ... I just love music. Less than a month til I see Lamb of God live :cool:

    On this band I missed them somehow but really liking what I am hearing from them so far ... you always have to have an open mind.

    I caught them on SNL and normally I don't pay attention to the musical acts but I was enthralled by "Closer" and got their recent album which I loved. Their previous albums are also good though they vary in tone and generally aren't as solid. Still, they're an awesome band and people are always asking me who I'm listening to when one of their obscure songs comes on.

    very popular here in the UK, I enjoy it on the way to work and back, and a good live act as well. Better than Snow Patrol IMO.

    Sure are better than Snow Patrol even though i quite like them...

    It was during last years BBC coverage of Glastonbury brought Kings of Leon to my attention..One Group i will certainly be looking out for future releases.
