Really haven't come around to this new album yet. As a fan of every Killers release - especially Day & Age - I was really let down by this release. Maybe I'll come around later, but for now it just has too much of a boring adult contemporary vibe for me.
Brandon's a killer vocalist, but this song has yet to grow on me. It's a shapeless mass, no tune, no hook, no direction, nothing to keep my attention really. Lots of bluster and bravado, no real substance. And this coming from a huge fan of their songwriting.
i couldn't disagree more. first time i heard this song the structure blew me away.
it is unarguable tho that he is in fact a "killer" vocalist.
Yeah, at first I really did not dig this song, but I think the more and more I listen to it the more I enjoy it. I think I really enjoy the song structure. It's different. I'm happy that they are playing some really good tunes on this tour, too.
I suggest to anyone that has the album on their computer to go to youtube and look up will ferrel gymnastics. it's the clip from old school with that interpretive ribbon dance thing. now put on Miss Atomic Bomb, switch over to youtube and watch the muted Will Ferrel video on repeat until the song is over. It's hilarious every time.
