a sound for a new year.,
This review is from: Sam's Town (Audio CD)
'Sam's town' is certainly an interesting album and the one that I personally love and admire. The sound achieved on this record is grandiose in terms of style, but they lose none of the accessibility that gave the killers worldwide acclaim. The obvious brilliance of 'when you were young' should not be underestimated because of its popularity; the melodies of the vocals blend seemlessly with the power of the guitar solos (the guitar work is, as a whole, superb on this album)to create a song that somehow relates to everyone. The rest of the songs on the album are certainly more introspective than on hot fuss, uncle johnny being a prime example, but I see this as a positive factor for a band that have obviously wished to explore new territories with their songwriting.
In short, approach this album with an open mind and you will love it.
