What's on your ipod?


[Tags|, ]

I've been meaning to buy/download this album for ages.
Does anybody have it? What's it like.

Hmmm...I was a huge Killers fan last year, Hot Fuss was amazing really...However I found Sam's town really disappointing. The singles are good, but I got the impression that the other songs are just filler...there's no Jenny, or Midnight show and even though the singles are good they don't have the same impact as Mr Brightside or Somebody told me, but then I guess, they'd be hard pushed to match that. There's a sort of intro/outro thing aswell, which I think is a waste of 2 track space on the album...it's not very good, just a nursery rhyme type thing...
All in all, I'd say, download the singles...the rest of the album isn't that good. It's a shame, because they obviously had the potential to be amazing, maybe the 3rd album will pick itself up where Hot Fuss left off.

I'd like to update that Where the white boys dance has a great bass line, so the album has gone up in my estimation because of that alone :)

Best. Album. Ever. It's seriously awesome. While Hot Fuss was more British pop and great in its own right, Sam's Town has a completely different feel. It's more Americana and is completely different. It's nice to know they can be versatile style-wise. The songs are fantastic and if you like, say 'Bones' or 'When You Were Young', you should like the rest of them, too. Then there are the enter/exitludes. I wouldn't say they're a waste of track space. I see them more as the way the band says 'thank you' for buying the album. They're only short and they're kind've airy but they have a very nice feeling about them.

I'd say buy/download it. It's completely worth it :D

Hope I didn't go overboard there, I'm kind've in love with them lol I saw them live two days in a row a couple of weeks back and they were AMAZING.

It takes a couple of listens, but it grows on you! I kind of didn't like it before but 3 months + one bottle of wine changed everything. lolz.

I'd say, overall it's not quite as good as Hot Fuss. On Hot Fuss, every track was great. On Sam's Town, about 85% is great. Download it, see if you like it, then you can buy it if you like it.
