    So happy they finally released their new album. My initial assessment is that it is a very solid effort although it doesn't have any particular track that strikes me as having clear hit potential like Mr. Brightside or Human. Still, some early favorites are Flesh and Bone, Runaways, Here With Me, Be Still, and Battle Born.

    I still think Brandon Flowers has one of the most distinctive voices around and looking at the album art, he is still has that wide eyed pretty boy thing going on! icon_wink.gif

    Anyone else listening? What ya think?

    Got to see them on their Day and Age tour and they rocked the hell out of this song.

    ^^^^ Sweet! I was starting to think I might be a freak or something being the only one into the band! icon_lol.gif

    Runaways didn't grab me at first, but it's really grown on me. Love it when Flowers wails "We can't WAIIT til tomorrow!"

    I'm a huge fan. I agree, Flowers definitely has that distinctive voice that you crave for sometimes.

    'Runaways' is Good but 'Flesh and Bone' would of been a bigger lead single off the album. FaB lols has that classic sound that can never get old no matter how much you listen to it. To me it came from the same sounds of Coldplays latest album, "Mylo Xyloto". Check 'Major Minus' and 'Charlie Brown'. The 3rd single without a doubt should be 'The Way It Was'.

    He could definitely make another hit i.e. Human, Mr. Brightside and Somebody Told Me. But I think they hit the high of their career with Hot Fuss.

    Flesh and Bone definitely has an anthem type feel to it. I can picture it being really good in concer with a lot of call and response with a live audience.

    I missed out on a live show that the Killers streamed on youtube this past Tuesday when Battle Born was released. Here it is if you want to see it. The first few minutes is behind the scenes stuff and the band warming up and talking to the director.Werner Herzog. The actual concert starts at around the 12:00 mInute mark.

    I like it, but it's a bit more mellow than I expected.

    Yeah, it does seem a bit more introspective, especially compared to Hot Fuss. Still, some of the more mellow stuff like Deadlines and Commitments has grown on me after listening a couple of times. They'll always still have When You Were Young to rock out to! icon_cool.gif
