Customer Reviews


The Killers "Sawdust" has go to be the biggest, most pleasing surprise of the year for me. I wasn't really sure what to expect from it, but I was glad they had a new album coming out, so I simply held out hope that it would be a good album. By the time I got to the fourth music clip "leave the Bourbon on the Shelf" I simply thought this is not to be believed, it was inconceivable to me that The Killers were inspiring awe. It was not what I was expecting to hear at all. I don't know why because I loved "Hot Fuss." Hearing "Mr. Brightside" for the first time brought me out of a hiatuss of probably a good three, maybe four years from music because I had been so convinced when all the "boy bands" were coming from everywhere that everyone had simply forgotten what good music was, so I just quit listening to it. So, it's not that I didn't like The Killers, I loved 'em. I thought they were remarkable. And despite what some may have thought about The Killers after Sam's Town" came out, I liked it,.. still do. "Sawdust" is just an amazing piece of musicianship and with a variety that has to and with a variety of musical styles that are on it, that has to make anyone happy. You've got all this music compiled from '02 up to the present, and they've got some outstanding music that they've compiled and fine tuned. Not to mention bringing Lou Reed and Mark Knopfler was genius. You can really hear Mark Knopfler's influence on "Romeo and Juliet." I thought I even heard some music in "R & J" that went back to Knopfler's "Roller Girl" years. In "Tranquilize," featuring Lou Reed, I thought the idea of adding Lou Reed with Flowers for embellishment or completion on that tune worked beautifully. The Killer's have aimed high from the beginning, but there were those out there who thought we were seeing the beginning of the end with "Sam's Town," and The Killers may have felt some pressure to prove or confirm themselves. If that is the case, then putting up an album as fine as "Sawdust" establishes them as true and genuine. They have thoroughly authenticated themselves to all of the doubters out there. They have triumphed and produced an album that marks an important state of development and growth for The Killers, and with that I think they have also put themselves at a height or level above other bands or musicians within the same genre.

Incredible as ever

Even though I only didn't have 5 of these songs thanks to a buttload of hunting on mp3 sites, this CD is still the thing I've been looking forward to for the past three months or so. The wait was worth it. A taste of each of their earlier albums and sometimes a combination, this album can appeal to pretty much any listener in some way. For Hot Fuss fans, I'd particularly recommend: Leave Your Bourbon on the Shelf Under the Gun Mr. Brightside remix Sweet Talk Daddy's Eyes Sam's Town fans: Tranquilize Shadowplay All the Pretty Faces Where the White Boys Dance Move Away Sam's Town (Abbey Road version) Non-fans: Sweet Talk Romeo and Juliet - these two are soft openers if you're not used to TK's style. To any hardcore fan, I'm sure you'll love every song just as I do. Good luck!

Even though no one will ever ead this...

I still have to write it in honor of the killers. This album is hands down the album with the most raw emotion in the songs, wich is a welcome change in today's world. Some of the songs, strangely, are U2-esque... You can tell they really put their hearts and souls into this one. Fantastic! If you like music, this album is worth buying. period. If you like the killers, just move your curser up and click "Buy". You'll thank me later when this is one of your favorite albums. Don't try to prevew them and buy the catchy ones... just buy it. Worth every penny and more.


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...
