BATTLE BORN
BIOGRAPHY

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 Fantastic follow up 3 Oct 2006
By Bee
Format:Audio CD
I'd been waiting for the follow up to Hot Fuss and was worried that it would prove the 'difficult second album' and disappoint me. Thankfully I was wrong and I think this is a better album than the first. The band sound confident in their sound and Brandon's voice is as charismatic and unique as ever. Bones and Can You read my mind stand out as the best tracks to me (after 2 days listening!) but there is not really a weak track on the album. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars What's He On About? 1 Oct 2006
By Simpo
Format:Audio CD
Not sure what Nigel Wilson's on about, but this HAS to have 5 stars. Not quite sure about the influences that the Amazon writers level at the guys either. The Killers are CLEARLY influenced by The Cure more so than any other band that they are mentioned in the same breath as, although I have to agree that the U2 comparison with Sam's Town sits well.

OK, the album. Opens with Sam's Town ,which should be familiar to fans on Hot Fuss, great guitar and vocal melodies. Enterude leads really well into When You Were Young, a classic Killers song that could easily have been included on Hot Fuss without the apparent detachment from the last album. From here we move through Bling and into For Reasons Unknown, which I think is form where the simliarities with U2 stem.

The other tracks cross from one to the other with an ease that makes the listening experience PASSIONATE. No highlights. Every track is fantastic. Really fantastic. Love it or Love it, there's no choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different, but equally wonderful... 29 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
OK, so truth be told it took me a long time to come round to Hot Fuss - the New Wave look and heavy synth-pop sound was a little hard to swallow for someone who hated it all the first time around. Still, Mr. Brightside was clearly an amazing single and I found myself listening to the rest of the album without really meaning to. It ended up being one of those go-to albums, that you automatically put on when you can't think what to listen to. A great album, no doubt, even if it took me a while to realise it.

No such problems here. I loved Sam's Town from the first minute I pressed play on my CD player, and even though I've listened to pretty much nothing else for the last week or so, all I'm finding are new things to enjoy. Now, a word of caution at this point - The Killers are going to take a lot of abuse for this one from some critics, and probably some of their own fans (check the Rolling Stone review for a predictable example of the former) because the one thing Sam's Town is not, is Hot Fuss Vol. II.

The 80s influenced melodrama-pop is pretty much entirely absent, except for a in few bars of Bling and Read My Mind - what they have done instead is embrace the American musical heritage of Springsteen and Neil Young (and even, in a couple of places, the kings of the desert, QOTSA), amped up their choruses and unleashed an album full of soaring anthems, about highways and hurricanes, cocaine and casinos and girls with pretty names - and for me, it's wonderful. And I'm sure I won't be the only one who thinks so. I defy anyone to listen to Bling (even though it has a genuinely awful title), Bones or the jaw-dropping This River Is Wild without feeling your heart surge against your chest like it did the first time you heard Born To Run...

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Hot Fuss - but give it time! 17 Nov 2006
By A. Ross
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, after the the first couple of plays of this much anticipated album I was disappointed - it didn't seem to have the instantly memorable melodies of Hot Fuss and seemed darker and less accessible.

However, something changed after the 4th or 5th play through - the melodies are there, and are great - they just take more time to recognise. Played loud in the car, it really comes into its own - and the Razorlight album which follows it on my cd multiplayer sounds like a boy band in comparison!

I have to say that I now think this is just as good, if not better than Hot Fuss. It's got two dodgy tracks, but out of 13 that's ok and the rest of the album makes up for it.

This is a fantastic album - just give it time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Hot Fuss, but... 6 Oct 2006
By Matt
Format:Audio CD
Well as people have already stated, it's certainly not Hot Fuss. It never was going to be. It was always going to be impossible to recreate the same 'amazingness' of the first 6-7 tracks on that album, they were quite literally phenomenal.

Since 2004, music has changed, and quite obviously so have the killers. They've become more serious, and good on them to! They've changed their style a tad and in my opinion it's great that they can do this and still deliver an album of such quality... this is Sam's Town.

The great thing about Hot Fuss was that from the beginning, track after track was fantastic... not one poor song, until maybe the latter stages of the album when it eased up a little. This is where Sam's Town is different for me. I can't pick one bad song on of this CD. From tracks 1-14 (including bonus tracks aswell) I seen to be rocking to them all. Obviously there's going to be peoples favourite tracks and maybe i'm a tad biased being a complete Killers obsessive but i can't fault any of the tracks.

If i could give this album 6/5 stars i would, i really do believe it's that good.

This album may qualify as a 2.5 star album but is definitely far less good than Hot Fuss and Day and Age.
