2.0 out of 5 stars Depressingly Deplorable......, 9 April 2009
This review is from: To Lose My Life ... (Audio CD)
Before reading my review I think its important for you the reader to understand when I first listened to this album I was looking forward to doing so,excitedly placing it in my CD player, I wanted it to be good I really did.

Unfortunatly dreams arnt always fufilled, I read White Lies where being likened to The Killers in their 80's influences. Now Im not sure about influences but certainly meaningless lyrics seems run a constant between both bands. I was warned it would be a depressing listen and it is, only its the level of song writing not the noise itself. It lacks emotion, direction and meaning. Theres prehaps to alright songs 'Unfinished Business' and 'From the Stars' but even their weak. It will undoutably fall into the genre of 'Indie' which is now nothing more than an extension of pop and be played non-stop by Jo Whily, who will of course love it.BUT DONT BE FOOLED!

All in all im sure there'll be a lot of 'hype' around this band almost all undeservingly, plaese dont fall into the trap, no one with a real ear for music would have let this band enter a recording studio...Let alone release an album.

To conclude they should have named this album "To lose my will to live" i think it would have been more accurate

How can you be so mean about this band and the killers?

If you listened properly to their lyrics you would find that they are not meaningless at all, and im not sure how you can dis
the killers at all, they are surely one of the most successful bands of all time, If you did more reasearch you will also find that
Indie and Pop have formed an entierly new brand of music called 'indiepop'. Whilst being completly made up, it was made up purely for brilliant bands like the Killers and White lies, who blend immaculately into both genres.

Whilst you are doing this reccomended research, Get some spelling lessons and listen to Mr Brightside, how anyone could say this was not an amazing song must have serious musical issues and probaly have spent their life listening to people like Britney Spears.

Also, why did you buy it before listening to any of the tracks? have you ever heard of music channels and youtube? Shouldnt have spent the money if you dont like it.
