I like Battle Born the more I listen to it. Just wish it had a few more guitar solos and a slightly harder edge.

The good news is the songs are a bit harder live.

I'm now fully back on the Killers bandwagon having seen them live recently.

No way.

I listened to Battle Born on the way to work yesterday and kept thinking, "Song after song, this album makes Brandon Flowers sound like he's in his 50s or 60s, looking back at his youth." The Miss Atomic Bomb video pretty well confirms that.

That is good news. I love this band so much. Am really bummed they aren't doing a proper Australian tour. Damn festivals.

Oh well, we are getting a Springsteen tour so that helps to make up for it. Plenty of time for The Killers to get their act together.

Nice review Ashley.

Glad you had a good time. I wish I would have gone when they played here last month. I watched a few youtube clips and it looked awesome.

'Here With Me' is the only track I still can't get into on Battle Born. 'Miss Atomic Bomb' looks like it really takes off in a live setting.

Re: Dustland Fairytale, I think the lyric: 'Cinderella don't you go to sleep, its such a bitter form of refuge' was referencing his dying mother, but yeah I don't think he mentioned it specifically until this tour.

Miss atomic bomb built so strongly live it was one of my favorite parts of the show.

That lyric makes sense, maybe it's a rear view mirror type song.

I strongly recommend going if they come back.

Saw the Killers Friday night in Vegas. Haven't done general admission at a rock concert in 20 years, but I survived, and got a great spot about 25 feet from the stage, dead center.

They blew the roof off the place. Amazing show- way better than I expected, and I had high hopes going in. Runaways was 100x better live.

Good stuff- hope to catch them again.
