iTunes Editors’ Notes

"Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas" opens the solo debut of the Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers with twangy tones rubbing against the grain of an anthemic modern-rock ballad. Throughout Flamingo, contrasts provide palpable tension while retaining some of the Springsteen worship that peppered the Killers' sophomore album Sam's Town. Jenny Lewis sings harmonies on the theatrical sounding "Hard Enough" where her warm and dusty vocals run perpendicular to Flowers' icy lulls. "Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts" sounds highly inspired by Born to Run-era The Boss until the tune's bridge breaks down into a bout of post-punk ambience, but both worlds collide nicely at the end, making for a triumphant conclusion. Standout tune "Crossfire" is a perfect example of Flamingo's formula: start off with a melodramatic verse that climbs and claws its way to a fist-pumping chorus while scattering Americana appreciation like the shells of sunflower seeds. Try walking away from bonus tracks like the countrified "The Clock Was Tickin'" or the more Killers-esque "Jacksonville" without a memorable melody stuck in your head.

Customer Reviews

Decent But Is Lacking Something

Solid album with fantastic singing by brandon...But the music itself leaves alot to be desired. Would have been a much better album with Mark, Dave & Ronnie. It doesnt really earn its 5 star rating...But gets one anyways because the killers are the best band in the world.

Perfect Album

I have always been a big fan of Brandon Flowers' voice. He has one of those sounds that are just so definable. I love that in an artist! However, I can't say that I've ever been a fan of his band The Killers. Still, I gave Flamingo, his first solo effort, a fair chance -- and I'm glad I did! This is an excellent album! I love every single song and I can see myself listening to it for a very long time to come. Check it out! Excellent lyrics, vocals, production, etc... You can't go wrong! Great job, Brandon.

First REVIEW!!!

Absolutely jawdropping. I waited all summer for this CD and actually wanted school to come so that this CD would come out.
Best songs on CD are Only the Young, Crossfire, Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts, Magdalena, and Jacksonville. Every song is a must buy.
Viva la Killers and Brandon Flowers

Brandon Flowers was the most popular frontman of the new wave revival, which swept through America and England during the early 2000s.

Flowers also proved to be a super-sized...
