Aha Shake Heartbreak simply solidifies the thoughts among many (myself included) that the Kings Of Leon are the best rock band to have come out of America for a long, long time. It is chock-full of lively, driving numbers, awash with Caleb’s Southern, twangy drawl, Nathan’s snappy and precise drumming and Matthew and Jared’s solid basslines and catchy riffing. Make no mistake, this is one of my favourite albums of all time!
This video is part of my Top 50 Albums on a ukulele project, if you enjoyed it why not check out some other albums that I arranged for ukulele. Like Nirvana – Nevermind or Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am. Or Some of Kings Of Leon’s early inspirations like Led Zeppelin or Fleetwood Mac.
