The Killers- Sam's Town (2006)

Boasted to be one of the most awaited and greatest album. Based on Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Las Vegas, where they were from. This album is not like HOT FUSS- it has stripped off the commercial vibes of HOT Fuss, and each track is unique, skillfully woven to entice. The album is slick, mature and different. I wouldn't have it any other way really, some expected the same kinda energy from HOT Fuss, but what would be the point of a 2nd album then? I love the way the album was presented: with the first track Sam's Town, and then and enterlude and the album ended with an exitlude. I thought it was very clever and makes the album all the more special especially to the fans. Just like Hot Fuss, you have to listen to Sam's Town probably about 2-3 times before you make a judgement. First time listening to it, honestly, I dunno what to make of it..the different assemble of sounds (trumpets, sax, violin) giving it an orchestral feel. I think that's what makes The Killers special. Consistently out to surprise u. Notable tracks : Sam's Town, When You Were Young, Bones, Uncle Jonny

This album's not bad at all, but not that great either (typical for rock albums these days). By the way, bought Franz Ferdinand's greatest hits, YUCK!
