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

so how do you follow one of the greatest albums around

not like this....Ive listened a few tiems through and it just isnt clicking. Dont get me wrong its not bad but its asif they've tried to go in a whole direction and just got lost. Their is very little of what made Hot Fuss such a great album whilst at times the music start to sound a bit coldplay. To me this seems like the kind of album that will either strike you straight away and will be a big part of your life for the next few years or one you will put on your computer and stick the CD in with the rest of your collection. Theres the odd song on which will go on my playlist but the rest ill just dismiss as a load of filler for the album. The musicals are muffled at timed, the lyrics don't seem to make a whole lot of sense and just don't inspire me and it's just as if they have lost their way I really did expect a lot better than this Tom

Sams Town!

WOW i got this album last week and iv bein dying to write a review ever since! I mean i loved hot fuss and the killers anyway but this album is great for any muic fan. From Hot Fuss (Their last album) were they wore dior and eyeliner, to this sams town were they have ditched that and gone for leather and cowboy goods! This album is totally different to their first album changing style completely but then still totally killers! With highlights of the album Sams Town, When you were young, Bling, Read my mind and Bones its truly a great album, in my opinion an amazing follow up considering all the pressure this album was under, A must buy!

Sam's Town - Sounds like my Town

The Killers have grown up and produced an amazing album, surely to be a mega platinum selling legend. Brandon Flowers has become a Keyboard wielding Cowboy - fronting the best Band on the Planet. Keeping their synth style and adding more rock ‘n’ roll to enhance their already brilliant sound, they smash out some cracking singles which are all too perfect, such as When You Were Young, Read My Mind, and Bones. Also the track This River Is Wild is another contender. With more personal tracks such as Why Do I Keep Counting? which obviously deals with Flowers’ fear of flying. You can’t help feeling closer to The Killers then before. Sam’s Town gets even better every time you listen to it, and is definitely the Album of the year. All Killers' fans should be thoroughly impressed by their new direction as they are now giving us their true work. - Kieran James


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 and illicit...
