Is this album worth the 10 bucks or whatever at best buy?

Yes, $10, would be a steal.

Love the album. Haven't heard the bonus tracks yet. But I think, as is, had they cut "I Can't Stay", this could be a classic record. That song kind of disturbs the flow for me. I love everything else on it, standouts being "Losing Touch", "Dustland Fairytale" and "This Is Your Life". Awesome record overall.

Then again, I also think Sam's Town is by far their best record, and has their three best songs (When You Were Young, Bones, and Uncle Jonny). So I'm probably in the huge minority there, anyway.

I honestly could not get through "Sam's Town" all the way through more than 2 or 3 times.

I freakin' LOVE "Hot Fuss" and could listen to that album over and over and over again, start to finish.

I'm guessing from what I've been hearing this new one probably is more "Sam's Town"-ish than "Hot Fuss"-ish.

I'll probably pick up "Day and Age", but my expectations aren't that high.

I'd say this one is closer to Hot Fuss. It's not as good as that one, but it's not bad, either.

Why A Crippling Blow and Tidal Wave aren't in the album proper is beyond me. Maybe 49.5 minutes is too long? Or perhaps they want to be able to put them both on Sawdust 2 a year after their next album?

It's as good as Hot Fuss and Sam's Town but with no amazing tracks but it's a lot more consistent



I'll probably get it whenever it goes on sale, not worth paying full price for but yeah I'd get it for $10

This record is really growing on me after listening about twice a day since Monday. It's not HF or ST. It's D&A all the way.

A Crippling Blow is golden. my guess is that it didn't fit well with the flow of the album. i think it's better as just an amazing b-side

It doesn't get much better after that.

Chalk me up as disappointed, too.
