Music: Kings of Leon album appealing to rock music fans

On Kings of Leon's new album, "Because of the Times," the band takes lots of risks and stretches their sound into a new universe.The band's first album, "Youth and Young Manhood," released in 2003, sounded like a band of kids playing in your living room.

On "Aha Shake Heartbreak," released in 2005, the band's sound was a little more refined. Singer/guitarist Caleb Folowill's lyrics and hound-dog singing voice made fans out of girls everywhere, and it was one of the best party-rock records ever.

Even though the women's golf team didn't finish as well as they may have wanted, the coach said none of the players are getting down about the team's 11th-place finish at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown.Head coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin said while the team's finish doesn't look too great on paper, it doesn't reflect the game played.

"Our finish doesn't show that great," Ravaioli-Larkin said. "But it is not that we played badly. Everyone in the league are really good players, which makes for a very competitive game."

"All you can do is keep your nose down while you are looking up."

Patterson said the team's position in the Mountain West Conference standings, sixth place, is nothing to be happy about.

CD Review: Unevolved, over-the-top third album unimpressive at best

If you have never heard of My Chemical Romance, it is probably because you are not a regular watcher of MTV's TRL.Following its huge 2004 smash album, "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge," MCR is back with its new record "The Black Parade."

As the title suggests, the record is full of heavy guitar-driven tunes complete with morose, dark lyrics.

The song titles speak for the album's overall lyrical meaning. With songs such as "Dead!," "I Don't Love You," "Cancer" and "Disenchanted," it's easy at first glance to understand what this album is all about.
