From out of the wreckage of the American Civil War, the great state of Nevada came into being on October 31st, 1864. Its creation immediately helped to secure the re-election of Abraham Lincoln, the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment and, ultimately, the future of the union. Today, that proud but painful history is en-shrined in the two words emblazoned on the ... Read more in Amazon's The Killers Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's to the next ten years! 11 Nov 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Please note: This is a review of the standard single CD version, there is however a double set (Direct Hits (Super Deluxe)) available which contains ONLY three songs: 'Mr. Brightside (Original Demo)', 'When You Were Young (Calvin Harris Remix)' and 'Be Still'.

I found it quite difficult to believe at first that The Killers have been around for a decade, as I can still very clearly remember watching them perform 'Somebody Told Me' live on television as the song was climbing up the UK charts. I also recall rushing out to buy their debut album 'Hot Fuss', which became the soundtrack to my pre teen years. To celebrate this milestone, we now have 'Direct Hits', an eagerly awaited official compilation which consists of mostly just that - their greatest hits.

The songs are presented in chronological order, tracks 1-4 are from the aforementioned debut, 5-7 are taken the second album 'Sam's Town' (my personal favourite), 8-10 appear on 'Day & Age', my least favourite album but 'Human' is a classic, tracks 11-13 feature on the band's brilliant fourth album 'Battle Born' (2012), and the final two tracks: 'Shot at the Night' and 'Just Another Girl', are new songs which debut on this collection.

This CD is an excellent introduction to the band's music, with well chosen tracks. My only tiny criticism is that I would have preferred to have had 'Bones' (from 'Sam's Town') over 'A Dustland Fairytale' ('Day & Age'), it was a bigger hit and a superior song. If you haven't (God forbid!) bought an album by the Killers before, this is a good place to start.

3.0 out of 5 stars No DVD, what a disappointment. 14 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD
My husband pre-ordered this for me because I said I would like the Killers greatest hits with the DVD for Christmas. I am a Killers fan so already have most of the songs on here on my Ipod. However the promise of a DVD too was what made me ask him to buy me the more expensive super deluxe version which he did. I waited for this present for weeks and when it arrived today I was confused to say the least when it only had a CD in it. If we had been told clearly through an email that the DVD was being withdrawn, we would not have bothered pre-ordering or paying the higher price for it. This is the second time Amazon have let us down in a week as we tried to purchase something else that turned out to have been put on at the wrong price. I would like to know why the DVD was not there.

5.0 out of 5 stars description doesn't match item 13 Nov 2013
By nahemah
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of course The Killers are amazing and this greatest hits compilation contains excellent songs but be warned I pre ordered this version a while ago as it stated it included a DVD documentary and 3 extra tracks, on release day the description changed and the DVD part was taken off, I received it today and there are only 2 bonus tracks, if I had known this I wouldn't have ordered this expensive "super deluxe" version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killers Alternative/Indie Rock Singles 19 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
I admit that I originally saw the Direct Hits by the Killers featured online and was undecided on whether or not to get it. However, I went ahead with purchasing this after spotting a this type of cd at my job. By the time I finalized my decision on obtaining it I had went ahead with ordering Direct Hits by The Killers (deluxe version) through Walmart’s website online. I am a little familiar with this group after hearing a couple of songs on the radio around 2004/2005 when I was living in California (through the United States Navy). Direct Hits by the Killers contains some of their well- known hits such as Mr. Brightside and Somebody Told Me. Obviously, I like both of those songs. Although, Shot At The Night and Be Still are also some of the songs that caught my attention from this collection. Direct Hits by the Killers is great for those who are opening to listening to alternative rock music.
