I'm not sure it's better than Crossfire, but it's dope. I love the little changes from the live version, especially that pre-chorus in verse one. I don't think that was there live.

Brandon Flowers - The Desired Effect

Really good song; I'm not gonna quite make full judgements on it yet. But I would rank it somewhere in the middle of Flamingo. Can't wait to hear the rest of the album, though.
Magdalena, Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas, Crossfire, Clock Was Tickin, Jilted Lovers, etc. are all such great songs. I hope that this new album can be just as good, but Flamingo set the bar high.

Yep. A little bit of Haim's Falling meets Edge of Seventeen meets Running Up That Hill... or something like that.

After a few more listens, this song is awesome. Reminds me of the Crystal Ballroom, but better. Huge hooks and great vibe. And Brandon's vocals, as always, are superb.

Reminds me of 'Deadlines and Commitments' from Battle Born. But better

It's not bad. I didn't care for anything on his last solo album.

To be honest, after a big CD purge, I have finally realized that I only don't really like the Killers; I only really like their first album.

Only that first album survived my purge.

How about Pearl Jam, did only "Ten" survive the purge?

That's pretty random, RBW.

 
I never had too many PJ CDs to begin with. I still Ten and their greatest hits collection.
