You were expecting a Brandon Flowers thread solo album to be about music? He plays keyboards and that's about it. The one time the band let him play bass on For Reasons Unknown was the highlight of his life and he refused to let go of it.

Tinnies have a strange ability to suck out any semblance of taste out of a beer.

Also Brian Followers or whatever his name is

yes. i'm a fan of TEDs; in a can they're just disgraceful.

i think, in addition to the Killers, he's also a member of the People's Front of Judea?

That new instrumental that has been put on his site sounds very good, can't wait for his album

EDIT. it seems the full song has been played on the radio already: http://onethirtybpm.com/2010/06/11/l...ers-crossfire/

So, I've listened to it about 5 times now, and it's not like it's the greatest song ever written or anything, but I'm quite pleased with it. Has me a lot more excited for Flamingo than I ever thought I would be. My only real problem with it is that it kind of fades off into nothing, like it's a little long and wanders a lot at the end.

song is solid, without being totally amazing. Love the 2nd half of the chorus.

It sounds like it belongs on Day & Age, but it is stronger than about half that album

I swear to God there should be a DNA test done involving Bono and Brandon Flowers. There are times when he seriously looks like he could be Bono's son. It's kinda spooky.

I like the Killers, too-only heard their singles, but I like them. "All These Things That I've Done" is still a personal favorite of mine. Interesting news regarding the solo album-that new song's all right. Doesn't sound all that different from what the Killers have done, which, if you're going to do a solo album, I'd imagine you'd want to deviate from that a bit, but eh, well. Really sounding like some '80s artist at times throughout, but I can't think of who.

Like that Cyndi Lauper cover, too, that was cute. The band looks like they're getting on all right there, so who knows what the reason for the hiatus is. Sometimes bands just need a break. It's like any other job, some days you just want to get away from your co-workers a bit (or forever, if you really hate them ). Will keep an ear out for the rest of the album, see what else he has to offer as a solo artist.

Also, I'm sorry to hear about his mom . That's a shame.

The reason for the hiatus is simply that they pretty much toured or were putting out music for about 5 years straight. They really deserve a break.

For what it's worth, if this can be taken for gospel, the album will be coming out in September:
