So I'm listening to this new hits album, and it seems to me that there is a dramatic decline in quality as soon as the Day & Age tracks pop up. It's almost like the moxy just drained out of the band. Those first seven tracks are all bangers, though.

Sorry, meant to actually say something in that post, but my comp crashed. Not sure how it submitted.

Anyways, it's not my favorite of the singles, but the video's great, so that's always nice. I love that they do this every year. A little extra something special to look forward to. Plus, how can you go wrong with Harry Dean Stanton?

I very much enjoy Day n' Age, in some respects more so than the first two albums.

Aside from the final track, I don't sense any filler in the first 9 songs.

Meanwhile, the filler on Sam's Town (Uncle Jonny, My List, Why Do I Keep Counting?) and Hot Fuss (Andy, you're a star and the atrocious Indie Rock n Roll) seems all the more striking in how they disappoint and undermine the broader album.

Thankfully gir&r isn't on the album, at least not the American release. Yes ayas is horrible

I wouldn't call gtw filler, it just drags on for way to long before it gets where it's going, so to speak.

I love uncle Johnny and wdikc? My list is the weakest on st yea

I can't speak for the albums, having never heard any of them all the way through.

Welp, it's official. This will be the first even year since the band existed that a new album by either The Killers or Brandon solo doesn't come out.

I say that becauseeeeee:

Brandon Flowers Is Recording A Solo Album With Ariel Rechtshaid - Stereogum

Glad they kept this one mostly under wraps, because the feature on it was a nice little surprise.

I was getting a little nervous when this didn't come out yesterday. I thought they usually release the single on World Aid's Day.

The Killers release Christmas single, “Joel, The Lump Of Coal” - Alternative Press
