"ACL has never been this hyped this early. At three in the afternoon, you had the Clear 4G tent packed in anticipation of Kings Go Forth, while Swedish techo-rockers Miike Snow had what seemed to be 30,000 kids jumping up and down to the beat.
Milwaukee's nouveau soul band Kings Go Forth no longer has the element of surprise: folks are expecting them to blow the roof off. But the band's weakness- fresh songwriting- became apparent four songs into the set when every blaxploitation film score had already been remined. KGF has been together less than three years and should beef up their reprtoire in the years to come." [Austin 360]
