5.0 out of 5 stars
Less anthemic more epic, 5 Oct 2006
No this isnt hot fuss but to be honest whatever the killers did to try and emulate that was going to probably come up short. The killers havent just sat on their laurels they have changed their sound which some people will probably resent but then again if they hadnt theyd have been criticised to. This album is a real grower give it a few listens and you will fall in love with it. It has touches of early U2 and even the strokes mixed in with the killers sound. There are less shout out loud sing along at the top of your voice songs like Mr brightside but you still get that amazing warm happy feeling when listening to this album, guaranteed to put you on a high. Stand out tracks include the incredible For reasons unknown and sams town along with river is wild and when you were young.
