5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!, 1 Dec 2008
This review is from: Day & Age (Audio CD)
The Killers have been my favorite band since they burst onto the scene with Hot Fuss and i have looked at the output with great ernest ever since. On 'Day and Age' they have created an album that will still be ringing in your ears long after you have finished listening.

On opener, 'Losing Touch' they have created an epic opener with a chorus that grabs your attention and a ending that is driven by an incredible guitar piece by Dave Keuning. A simply majestic opener.

Lead single 'Human' follows and is a pure pop gem from the killers. A great return to the synthesizer which sounds like a 1980's pop song but with a modern twist.

Next single 'Spaceman' quickens the pace of the album and it is a true Killers classic. A great chorus and a pounding verse means it is sure to be a brilliant song when performed live. Classic.

'Joy Ride' is an unexpected tune. It has a funky groove to it and it's not typical killers sound but turns out to be a classic track with a really catchy chorus and imaginative lyrics.

'A Dustland Fairytale' slows the album down but has a 'lighters aloft' feel to it as the song gradually builds to an epic ending. Once again, with some rather brilliant lyrics.

'This Is Your Life' uses the bass to once again drive the song and it is perhaps the worst song on the album but is still worth many listens.

'I Can't Stay' gets things back on track with an acoustic guitar and classic Killers chorus and middle 8. Brilliant.

'Neon Tiger' is a glam rock power song which was written after the Killers tried to write like MGMT. It has brilliant verses and choruses which will make for a good song live even if it does have strange lyrics.

'The World We Live In' is a synth rock driven epic song. Stunning.

'Goodnight Travel Well' rounds things up perfectly with an epic feel to it.

All in all, the Killers have delivered for the forth time in a row. Buy the album and listen to something that will cater for al your moods!
