Album Review

On the 2006 follow-up to their wildly successful debut, the Killers continue their torrid affair with 1980s new wave, but manage to incorporate the sounds of that era, particularly heavy use of synthesizers, more seamlessly into the mix. This is due, at least in part, to the presence of veteran producers Flood and Alan Moulder (Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, U2). While the Las Vegas-based act's Britpop-influenced songs are still marked by Brandon Flower's emotive vocals and bold synth lines, Dave Keuning's guitar riffs are amped up on much of the record. Other highlights of this brooding album are the dramatic "Bones" and the yearning title track, songs that prove that the Killers may have unforeseen substance lurking under their carefully rendered style., Rovi

Customer Reviews

Fedt album

Hvor er det fedt når man oplever et album med 12 sange der bare er super fede. Der er simpelthen ikke en eneste dårlig sang på Sam´s Town. Men hvis jeg skal nævne en ynglings sang, så er det "Read My Mind". Hvor er det bare et fedt album.

Good album, with some very good tracks.

The album is not as good, as Hot Fuss, theyve replaced the synthesizer-sound, with guitar. Good tracks: Sam's Town - Has as much speed as Mr. Brightside, and a killer chorus! When You Were Young - The first single, that pretty much sums it up. Good lyrics, and nice guitar. For Reasons Unknown - It has a lousy intro, but makes it up by having one of the best choruses I've ever heard! Read My Mind - A little boring, but it will grow on you, and then you actually find yourself screaming along. My List - A very long track! Maybe too long. But again, nice chorus. All in all a good sophomore album, but doesn't have the Hot Fuss standard. However, I think their next album, will be bigger than the world.

Its a KIller...

Good album that I am sure after a few more listens is going to grow into a great album. Hard to find a bad track. Recommended!

Biography

Formed: 2002 in Las Vegas, NV

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Few bands in the early 2000s rose so quickly to the forefront of pop music as the Killers. With a mix of '80s-styled synth pop and fashionista charm, the band's street-smart debut, Hot Fuss, became one of 2004's biggest releases, spawning four singles and catapulting the group — particularly their dandyish, 22-year-old frontman, Brandon Flowers — into the international spotlight. Hot Fuss reveled in the garish glitz of the band's native Las Vegas, spinning tales of androgynous girlfriends...
