Great news about Flowers' new album; Flamingo was great! On The Floor and Jilted Lovers are phenomenal.

Flamingo was stellar so hoping for more of the same.

Jacksonville and the bumpkin Clock was Tickin' were great bonus tracks.

Those first five tracks off the debut were stunning. Amazing opening. Here's hoping this album lives up.

Good news for The Killers fans. They've been playing a few concerts together recently and there's speculation that a new album is in the works.

They've taken decent-sized breaks before and after Battle Born's released, but there was never any indication that it represented anything more than that. In fact, Brandon has said that his solo releases are only out there because the rest of the band wanted a break from The Killers and that those songs probably would've been recorded with them if not for that. Weirdly enough, I know that Still Want You was rejected by the others when it was a demo for Battle Born too.

There were a lot of rumors based on the band's comments they may call it quits post-Battle Born Tour. I am glad that they are back together and Brandon said they are getting back in the studio this month. Very encouraging.
Plus, they also acknowledge that Battle Born wasn't up to their standards. The album has some good songs, but bears an obvious musical resemblance to Sam's Town. Hopefully they get a bit more experimental.

Considering that Battle Born existed after that break after Day&Age and Branden solo release and all that, i probably shouldn't have been surprised.

Hope so! I really liked Battle Born.

I do too. They've dissed the album since, probably because it wasn't a smash hit.
But "Flesh & Bone", "Rising Tide" and the title track are awesome. Hard not to like "Heart of a Girl", it's almost too happy and sappy, but works. Runaways, Miss Atomic Bomb, Matter of Time, etc are all really solid efforts as well.
I actually decided to give this one a spin for the first time in a while tonight. Better than what I last remembered. I was super into The Killers when it first came out and wore it to death, which is probably why I haven't listened to it in a while.

I essentially consider Flamingo and Desired Effect to be a part of the The Killers discography. If you listened to Hot Fuss, Sam's Town, Day&Age, Flamingo, Battle Born, and Desired Effect in that order and had to pick which 2 albums were solo albums, I would have trouble picking.
Hot Fuss, Day and Age, and Desired Effect all sound fairly similar.
While Battle Born sounds like a mix of Sam's Town and Flamingo.
