Not Hot Fuss, but...,
This review is from: Sam's Town (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.
