I'd say the latest is the BEST of the lot. Certainly their most successful. Almost a year after it's release, and it's four singles deep, and could keep going with more, too. They haven't even gotten to some of the albums best tracks yet. You don't see that kind of thing much in modern music anymore.

Up until this past album, I always thought they were lacking something - or at least something that held my interest. I liked a song here on there on the earlier albums, but "Only By The Night" is a solid effort all the way through. Is it a more commercial sounding record? Sure - but it works for me. I prefer the more anthemic (or U2esque) sound over the stripped back raw stuff. This album sounds big, and it is. One of the best things about it is that you finally get to hear Caleb Followill actually sing on it, instead of the mumbled garbling he used to do.
