The Killers - Sam's Town

Modern Music Review
Flood and Alan Moulder handled production for the popular Las Vegas band's second album.

Brandon Flowers (vocals/keyboards), David Keuning (guitar), Mark Stoermer (bass), and Ronnie Vannucci (drums) took the fashionista pop world by storm in summer 2004 with
"Somebody Told Me." The perfectly stylish song pulls from the band's influences --the Smiths, New Order, Oasis, and the Cure -- and it was just enough to get them on MTV.

Opening with title song Sam's Town which is a perfect start including determined vocals and different sound waves. It really shows that their music is growing. The different colors are dancing in the skies, fireworks running around, higher above the clouds (When You Were Young). A bit piano(Exitlude), a bit violin(Sam's Town) and marked guitar noises at the center. They also embrace some kind of metropol rock in their record. Close your eyes for escape exhausting lights of the city and listen (When You Were Young).

'Every time it tries to get real, it only winds up sounding fake, which means it's the
quintessential Vegas rock album from the quintessential Vegas rock band.'Amg

In fact i hadn't liked Hot Fuss (2004) which includes short lived songs commonly. Sam's Town
maybe kicks Hot Fuss, oh not maybe it truly kicks but it's not perfect too. Sometimes it turns
a kind of tiring air [Bling (Confessions Of A King)]. Still "Sam's Town" rescues the circumstance with the willing sound of it (For Reasons Unknown). We know that songs of these kind of band
(Muse,Strokes,Keane,Franz Ferdinand etc.) generally aren't durable. Because of the pop tunes. I hope this album ain't going to age and it'll be a way to love The killers.

It's not hard to pick the good songs (Bones,Why Do I Keep Counting?), but there are superfluous efforts in Sam's Town (Uncle Jonny,My List,Read My Mind). If you love sophisticated places, you'll have a couple nice word about this fresh bread.
