Sam's Town

So, The Killers album Sam's Town came out a week ago, and I've probably listened to it a hundred times since then. It's a really sweet album. The first single "When You Were Young" may have some Bruce Springsteen-esque lyrics, but people are way off when they characterize the album as a Bruce Springsteen imitation.

The synth-rock sound from Hot Fuss that people loved so much is gone now, except for the beginning of "Bones" which is very Hot Fuss sounding at the beginning and kind of Cure sounding afterward. (It's also, I'm pretty sure, my favorite song from the album.)

Also, the music video for "When You Were Young" is a pretty amazing piece of work, so you should watch it sometime. Tim Burton is in charge of the upcoming video for "Bones" so that's another one to look forward to. (As far as music videos go, The Killers tend to deliver too.)

So, I'm pretty sure I love every song from this album.

To heck with the sophomore curse.

I love The Killers.
