Finally had the time to listen to the iTunes stream. Battle Born and Flesh and Bone were early favorites, but I'm loving the overall sound. There's still a touch of awkwardness here and there lyrically, as there was on Day & Age, but there's not a lot of it in the music or vocals, as there was on Sam's Town. Very ready for this release to happen.

Didn't really like Flesh and Bone on the first listen. Had to stop listening on the first album listen though unfortunately only 3 songs in.

Gonna sit down in a bit and start over from the top.

Flesh and Bone would make such a good instrumental track. Still waiting for a specific track to really strike me like Runaways, only been through 1.5 listens though. Starting again.

Jacques Lu Cont mix on Flesh and Bone is FIRE! So was the trailer with Flesh and Bone.

So maybe I'm a critic, but they really screwed up the Flesh and Bone track in my opinion so far. Could've been one of the best Killer tracks.

Songs I'm liking:

Battle Born
Miss Atomic Bomb
A Matter of Time
Runaways

Oh, also...

I don't know why The Killers bother with these 'bonus tracks'. They should be considered regular tracks on what is a long album.

Just like how Tidal Wave was a freaking great song, Prize Fighter is a great song.

Gotta say I didn't like this much on my first listen through, but now some of the tracks are starting to click.

Flesh and Bones
Runaways
Miss Atomic Bomb
Battle Born

are my favorites


Still, I don't think I like Battle Born better than Day & Age or Sam's Town at this point. This wasn't really what I was expecting from the new Killers album.

Carry Me Home rising. Miss Atomic Bomb falling.

Can't get over the Flesh and Bones disappointment.

The Killers are really confusing me right now...

Unless they plan on doing something in October, I'm not quite sure why they wouldn't be supporting their album here in the United States...

Yeah, and for all of the month of October they're not doing anything. 1 date. The album comes out tomorrow. They have 1 tour date until the end of October. That seems really strange.
