Today is an exciting one for me, because the new Killers album just dropped. I have been a huge Killers fan since their first major album came out when I was 16. Listening to Brandon Flowers' captivatingly melodic voice and heartache inducing lyrics always brings me back to my first serious high school boyfriend. Don't worry, they are happy memories of a silly little girl who fell for every bassist she ever met, not sad emo eyeliner diary entries.
Battle Born has a lot of the melodic song qualities found on the Sam's Town album of 2006, but brings back some of the dance hall feel of Hot Fuss (2004). It creates a nice intersection between rock n roll and club beats making it catchy enough to get you dancing, but also unique enough to make you stop and listen to the poinent lyrics.
My favorite tracks include:
Miss Atomic Bomb
Here With Me
