Buoyed by the popularity of hits "Sex of Fire" and "Use Somebody," the Tennessee four-piece transformed from ragged, post-punk upstarts into arena-bait arbiters of anthemic, mainstream rock uplift, exposing their abiding love for U2 in the process. In some ways, the tonal shift made sense to a band poised to storm the awards stages next to similarly grand-minded acts like Coldplay and the Killers. It's a stance the band has assumed unflinchingly, if somewhat doggedly on subsequent albums like 's Come Around Sundown and 's Mechanical Bull. Although those albums had their brighter moments the driving "Supersoaker" , there was a sense that just as KOL ascended to their rightful place in the post- U2 rock royalty, they became codified and predictable. The result is an album that does feel less claustrophobic than previous efforts, with a lean aesthetic that straddles the gaps between classic Tom Petty , '80s Fleetwood Mac , and more contemporary acts like Arcade Fire.

The boys were suddenly enormous, headlining the major festivals, selling out arenas, and going platinum in a dozen countries. Therein lies the tale of two fanbases.
