Kings of Leon’s ONLY_BY_THE_NIGHT remains one of my fave albums in recent years.  There is nothing better than that undeniable inflection in a singer’s voice that makes you recognize him/her from the hint of one note.    And it’s front man Caleb Followill’s distinctive voice that truly takes this album’s well-written and masterfully-produced songs into a total different stratosphere.  Honestly, I hadn’t felt this blown away by an album since Radiohead’s OK Computer!

So it is no surprise that I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for what Billboard and MTV report will be the release of a ONLY_BY_THE_NIGHT remix album.  Both sources report collaborators would include Linkin Park, Pharrell Williams, Mark Ronson and Justin Timberlake.

I am not one for remix albums.  As the old adage goes: don’t try to fix something that ain’t broken.  However, I have a sneaking suspicion that this Leon project will take some errant course much like the beloved and very successful Bjork remix album, Telegram — which was comparable and in some regards even better than its predecessor Post.
