5.0 out of 5 stars Stunned..., 14 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Day & Age (Audio CD)
...for two reasons . 1, - i can't believe that this album has recieved 15 one star reviews.
2, - I am stunned by how wonderfuol this album is , every time i play it , i love it more. It's easily my favourite Killers album , and i like the other 3 (sawdust) included , quite a bit.
I'm in a rush here, only typing these few words in the hope of bringing up the overall rating (with some other music lovers, i hope. not Killers lovers thats not what this is about) ,for this magnificent album.
I hesitated to buy it after seeing them perform 'Human' on Jools. i thought ,"if this is the best the new album has to offer ,it ain't up to much". i could not have been more wrong. This contains at least 5 of the best Killers songs ever. On the previous releases the vocals were fine, but nothing special,the songs were all so instantly catchy,the sometimes weak singing didn't matter, however on this cd,where ,yes,some of the tracks take a few listens to grab ya, Brandon's voice is beautiful, emotive and a pure joy to hear on ever track.
I adore this album , it was my album of the year, (and i buy a lot ,trust me). not only that ,it is..... along with Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker ,Bruce's - Magic,and releases by Idlewild,Satellite Party,The Music,Gaslight Anthem (off the top of my head,missing a few fave's in there i know)... one of my favourite albums of the decade/century.
I respect the opinions of the people who hate this album, but all it proves is that...they hate this album. It doesn't make it a bad album ,bad music, as they seems to believe. Nor does my endorsement make it wonderful...all i would ask ,is, if you have liked other Killers albums, or are simply curious...give it a listen.(3 listens would be better,ha).
It contains music that is wonderful ,to some listeners, that much is beyond dispute. Try it.
