The Killers are Deadly - Brilliant Album
on 17 September 2012
Live from The Royal Albert Hall is probably the best DVD
that I have seen and heard from The Killers. No doubt
being a first live album makes all the difference.
This pack contains two discs, the DVD of course and a CD
offering 17 tracks recorded live, with over 78 minutes
on the CD alone. All of the old favourites are here.
Human, Mr Brightside, This is Your Life, When You
Were Young, Jenny Was A Friend of Mine, Somebody Told Me and
lots of incredible others.
I was doubtful about buying a live album, many of those that
I have bought in the past from all pop genres have had too
much crowd noise which can drown out the artistes. Not so
on this recording. yes, there is audience participation but
it is not intrusive, and is only apparent between tracks and
when Brandon calls out for it and eggs them on.
There are a few bonus festival performances included on the
DVD. Oxegen Festival, Hyde Park and the V Festival giving
tracks from each. Some backstage material is included too.
Brandon the quiet unassuming Mormon from Las Vegas becomes
something raw and alive on stage and along with his Killer
buddies backing him, the whole thing is very special and
recreates that concert atmosphere. The Killers at their
The whole DVD/CD experience is of 2 hours 40 minutes.
Well worth buying.
Well enjoyed by this 66 year old fart!
