For too many 'flash in the fan' acts, the second single can be awfully disapointing. Luckily, this is far from the case as regards Las Vegas Synth rockers The Killers.
Mr Brightside is a truly catchy, mutli genre song. If you like bands like Stellastarr*, Interpol, Jet, and Franz Ferdinand. Buy this. It is an elegant suffusion of all the best bits of indie rock, and sexy synth backing akin to Duran Duran, and Dexys Midnight Runners.
Both Mr brightside sinlges also have excellent B-sides. Change your mind is an excelent track, upbeat and dripping with gorgueous synth rifs and great basline. Very catchy and in my opinion worthy of its own single.
The 2nd version contains a special version of the fantastic track Midnight show, the most angry of all the Killers songs, wailing guitar and pumping lyrics. Add this to any Indie giants album and it would not be out of place. The killers provide excellent value for money.
Look down the back of the sofa, find £4, and buy this CD! you will not be dissapointed.
