Editors’ Notes

Is that David Byrne’s worldbeat fluctuating through “Joy Ride”? Is that the Kinks’ Ray Davies being summoned in the neurotic vocal attack of “A Dustland Fairytale” or “I Can’t Stay”? Musically, The Killers are centered on the widescreen soundarama of the ‘80s, from New Order to the Pet Shop Boys. Considering the ‘80s are but a wistful dream to these young rockers, their attempt to re-invigorate that lost era with enough tough poses and careening stadium rock — all while writing a new chapter in post-punk rock in the process — is quite ambitious. Singer Brandon Flowers revels in the garish and overblown, turning this Las Vegas quartet into a Britpop band with fangs, as he continues to ransack the flamboyant poses of singers as heady as Bryan Ferry and Morrissey. The band has teetered between its Brit and American influences in the past, but for 2008’s Day & Age they’re waving the Union Jack and having a blast. “Neon Tiger” is a track worthy of David Bowie’s reinvention, while “Spaceman” could be the band’s autobiography, as they clearly have no intentions of settling for music rooted at an earthbound level.

Customer Reviews

Day & Age

The Killers have done it again with another incredible album. I have to say that this album is their best work yet. Their first single Human is one of the best songs i have heard from the Killer since Mr Brightside and When We Were Young. They seemed to have blended the sounds of their last 2 albums, Hot Fuss and Sam's Town, and it has worked out brilliantly. The songs were inspired by artist such as Elton John, David Bowie and Lou Reed. The standout tracks on the album are Losing Touch, Human, Spaceman, Joy Ride, Neon Tiger, The World We Live In and A Crippling Blow. Day & Age gets 10/10. Top 5 1 - Human 2 - Spaceman 3 - Neon Tiger 4 - Losing Touch 5 - Joy Ride Song Ratings Losing Touch - 10/10 Human - 10/10 Spaceman - 10/10 Joy Ride - 9.5/10 A Dustland Fairytale - 8/10 This Is Your Life - 8.5/10 I Can't Stay - 9/10 Neon Tiger - 10/10 The World We Live In - 9.5/10 Goodnight, Travel Well - 9/10 A Crippling Blow - 9/10

Its a grower

On first hearing the album I thought it didn't rival Sam's Town to any extent. However on listening to it even once more has led to me to believe that this is one of the greatest, catchiest albums I have ever heard. The Killers have managed to retain their style whilst producing something fresh and exciting.

Superb

Another amazing album from The Killers. Well worth buying.

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...
