i think killers are overrated

after HOT FUSS which sold 3,5 million in the us, they were celebrated by critics and fans

they have good songs but also a lot of fillers on their albums

Totally disagree.


Hot Fuss got all the fan praise and everything else since has always gotten some form of generally unwarranted criticism.

And the only album with filler on it is Battle Born. I think that's why I love the Killers so much. They avoid filler crap so well.

I agree that with the Killers, album filler seems to really stand out more so than it does with other artists, especially on the first two albums in their latter halves.

I disagree, for the most part.

Sam's Town: My favorite Killers album. The only track I would consider filler would be "My List." The rest of the album is fantastic.

Day and Age: My least favorite album of theirs, but still pretty consistent. Songs 1-7 are solid and with some nice changes of sound/approach for the band with I can't stay, This Is Your Life, Dustland Fairytale. The last 3 songs are hit and miss with a lot of people, but are by no means duds IMO.

Battle Born: This is my 2nd favorite Killers album after Sam's Town, but I agree it's a little bloated. The album does a great job in telling a cohesive story, but would have been better had it been cut down to a more concise 10 song album.
