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 Buy It!!! 4 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
I've got to start by saying that I rarely give anything 5 stars, if I could, I would give this album 6! It is just fantastic. If you haven't heard it, what the hell are you waiting for!? The stand out tracks for me were, Jenny was a friend of mine, Mr. Brightside, Somebody told me, Andy You're a star, Indie Rock and Roll and Everything Will be Alright. Usually when I listen to an album, there are 1 or 2 stand out tracks but in the case of Hot Fuss, I've chosen about half the album and there are still a couple more that I feel should be in there. In conclusion, a truely amazing album that has barely left my CD player since I bought it. Every single track is very, very good (I nearly put them all as stand out tracks but that would have been a bit pointless...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Killers Hot Fuss and Sam's Town 29 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
These guys are the best band I have heard in 25 years. I'm 42 now and can honestly say this. Buy both CD's - Hot Fuss and Sam's Town. If anything, buy Hot Fuss for track 7 alone! Heard this song ("On Top") for the first time while watching their set at Glastonbury last week (June 23, 2007) and it made my hair curl!! Both CD's are filled with outstanding tracks. Buy both and crank up the volume and imagine your favourite bands of the 70's and 80's and you are there!! Brilliant - on CD and Live!

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchiest album of 2004 4 Mar 2005
By Jase
Format:Audio CD
The Killers are a deceiving band. Their debut Hot Fuss is an electro-indie-disco fusion, the kind not heard since prime-era Pulp. The guitars and synths draw heavily on quintessential british bands such as the Cure and New Order. Yet whilst singer Brandon Flower's hollered vocals sound convincingly british, the band hail from that most unenglish of places, Las Vegas. Knock them all you want for aspiring to be british indie heroes, but there's no denying that with Hot Fuss they've written one of the most addictive albums of 2004.
Singles Mr Brightside and Somebody Told Me have been filling dance floors everywhere with their pulsating energy and universal appeal. Thankfully much of the album's remainder is of a similar quality. Opener Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine sets the tone perfectly, the song describing a crime scene in the most danceable way possible, complete with Peter Hookesque basslines, and the first of many great choruses.
The momentum is maintained for much of the first half of the album. Yet whilst the second half is slightly slower to ignite, it is in no way the weaker half. Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll is the album's oft misunderstood anthem, with its sound, and cringe-worthy lyrics ("She plays the drums, I'm on tambourine" accompanied by shake of said tambourine") wholly intentional. On Top opens with a sequence which sounds worryingly like an Ibiza anthem, before developing into one of the album's highlights. Believe Me Natalie's glimmering guitars and 80s synths are reminiscent of the Cure at their poppy best (right to the point where the song introduces trumpets ala Close To Me), whilst the initially odd Everything Will Be Alright grows with every listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer 6 Aug 2004
I haven't heard an album so great for ages. I have to stop myself playing the damn thing, but it's the only one I want to listen to at the moment. If you like Franz Ferdinand you'll like it, reminiscent of New Order, The Smiths, but thankfully it is it's own thing and that's why I can't stop playing it. Great to cycle to if you like going very very fast! I guess if I still had a car it would be great car crash music, I mean driving music. There are great songs on this album, it's filled with hit singles. Oh, go on, get it and play it till it till its your album of the summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album of 2004 - no rivals 12 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
As someone who buys around 250 albums a year, it takes something very very special to be top of my list. Well, this is something very very special. Instantly hummable tunes. Their influences are obviously mostly wedged in the 80's, but their sound brings it right up to date.
The hit singles such as Mr Brightside are the tracks that'll be talked about with Smiths, Cure, Suede and Pulp references, but the crucial track for me is the mid-CD clincher "All these things that I've done", which shows their skill an aptitude perfectly. Not just one hummable tune, but three (chorus, verse and bridge) in one song, which takes a Strokes riff, raps bagpipe like Big Country guitars around it and sucks out your very soul so that you immediately hit repeat when it finishes.
Pure undiluted class from beginning to end. Buy this album if you have any musical sensibility in your body whatsoever.
I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier. Indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars what can I say- amazing! 14 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I cannot say enough how much I love this album! Brandon Flowers and his band have come up with a retro-inspired album full of classic anthems perfect for indie clubs, dancing, and just feeling great to. I just can't help singing along, anticipating the big rhythmic beats and dancing round the house to it.
Live the band are brilliant, and their debut cd is a clear and true depiction of what they are all about: you can hear all the words, lots of synths, lots of strumming, lots of anthemic drumming. The Killers ooze coolness in a smarter version of the Strokes, where laid back slouching about is replaced with wide eyes, keyboards, smart suits and waistcoats and a massive amount of appeal. If you liked the Strokes, Franz, anything like that, you'll love this. I'd almost say I had a crush on Flowers!
if you want to know what the Killers are about before buying this album, try and catch their videos on channels like MTV2. Somebody Told Me somehow epitomises everything about them with its flashing lights, Brandon's furtive looks and slightly rigid movements, and a real sense of presence.
The album starts with almost half a dozen beating anthems, one classic after another. After such a great start you'd forgive them anything, but they go on in a fantastic fashion, getting more and more interesting as the album progresses. One feels it is complete and perfect, and they fill you with all they've got. I really want everyone to go and support them, I think they're uberly cool and deserve a lot of attention and to be thought of as the band of 2004.
I can't wait for their second album, though I can't help wondering how they can come back after something so brilliant, clear, professional and complete on their first attempt.
