Just listened to this. It's pretty good, but nothing I'd wax hyperbolic about.

never been obsessed with The Killers and so do I with Brandon. There are some good tracks but it's not a masterpiece.

It's difficult to accept the 96% considering how little the reviewer did to hide his love for The Killers/Brandon Flowers to begin with. But hey, these reviews are subjective so who am I to debate the final number?

I'd agree with a 96%. It's a great album.

Fantastic review!

After hearing clips of most of the songs, they all sounded pretty lame except for Crossfire. So it's safe to say I'm surprised at the score.

I really enjoy Brandon's music and this album is pretty good, but giving a 96% is just nuts. I think it ranks last out of all the Killers albums for me, all of which I loved.

that is an unbelievably high score. higher than Thrice, higher than Brand New, higher than really any band has ever gotten. i strongly disagree with the scoring.

Edit: and now you have changed the score? please explain.

The scoring is usually the hardest part for me, and with this release I perhaps went a bit overboard in my first assessment. I let the fanboy part of my brain get the best of me and I apologize. After further scrutiny on my part, the score has been slightly adjusted. Now please, talk about the music instead of the score. It's an amazing record and easily my album of the year so far.

I'm a huge fan of The Killers and Sam's Town and Flowers... but this album left a lot to be desired. I can't wait for the next Killers release.

One thing that really annoys me about people on this site is that they focus too much on the score an album gets. If I had things my way, there would be no score, that way people could read a review and see if it's postive or not, because that's ultimately what matters.

Rant aside, you've convinced me to check out this album, so job well done.

the problem with reviews is everyone's taste is different. no two people have 100% the same taste in music; it may be similar, but not exactly the same.

I love this album, I love the Killers, as well.

I definitely hear some Lou Reed on this cd, some lyrics and vocal arrangements just sound like something he would do, and it makes me love it even more.

The score might be a little high for my take, but fuck me sideways am I digging the hell out of this album. I've listened to this CD much more already than I ever will Day and Age.
