iTunes Review

The Las Vegas Anglophiles headed by Brandon Flowers return with a vengeance on Battle Born. With songs that recall the glamour and glitter of their synth-dappled debut—but with the epic, organic quality that made the follow-ups Sam's Town and Day & Age so successful—The Killers have crafted something truly unique. "Flesh and Bone" is a pulsating, triumphant opening cut set to a mixture of dance-floor thump and guitar. "Runaways" is something else: a huge anthem that sounds like it was recorded by the combined forces of '80s-era Tom Petty and David Bowie. All in all, this is gigantic, cry-your-eyes-out alt-pop with a real soul peeping out from under the synth pulses and waves of post-production

Customer Reviews

A Journey of EPIC proportions!

The Killers return and they deliver! From open to close, the album is crafted around some of the best Guitar work I've heard in a long time. The Killers prove they are more then just a frontman band! The whole band has contributed so much here.

Flesh and Bone: 4.5/5 A great anthem once again by The Killers. This one is sure to hit the radio.
Runaways: 5/5 The single is still a solid track, bringing back the days of Sams Town. This is a track I can jam to!
The Way It Was: 5/5 The best song they have to offer on this release. It is perfection of music.
Here With Me: 4.5/5 Solid ballad, The Killers seem to be testing the waters of very slow songs, and they nailed it!
A Matter Of Time: 4/5 Good sound, and we get to hear the rest of the band in the back bellowing this anthem.
Deadlines and Commitments: 4.5/5 Reminiscent of Flamingo, pure lyrical genius.
Miss Atomic Bomb: 4/5 Sure to be a crowd pleaser on its name alone. Very fun, catchy little tune.
The Rising Tide: 4.5/5 Fast paced, charging, and full of life. Songs like this are what made the Killers what they are today.
Heart Of A Girl: 3.5/5 Another good ballad, but it struggles to hit as hard as the other (Here With Me).
From Here On Out: 4.5/5 The lyrics, the music, and the atmosphere make this one that all Killers fans will love. Very reminiscent of Sam's Town!
Be Still: 5/5 The 3rd Ballad from The Killers, and it tugs at your heartstrings more then any before it. This song moved me, well done.
Battle Born: 5/5 A song that could be a hit if it weren't last on the album. One of the strongest tracks here; fast and emotional, but it should be placed at the head of this musical journey.

Came up short

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...
