When I heard 'Spaceman' for the first time, I thinked it was a horrible song.
Now I cannot stop to listen to it all day long!

"A Crippling Blow" should have been on the album! That song rocks.

I had downloaded this last weekend, but never got around to listening to it.

Now that it's payday, I'll just buy the album on my way home. I'm really looking forward to checking it out!

Finally, picked it up today. Listened to it all the way through once.

Somewhat disappointing. It's much better than Sam's Town to me, but nowhere near as great as their first album. The Killers + horn sections =

I miss Hot-Fuss-era Killers. And the new songs I like the most are the most Hot Fuss-ish tunes ('This Is Your Life', 'The World We Live In', 'Human'). Maybe it will grow on me more after a few listens.

Can anyone e-mail me 'A Crippling Blow'? I'd really like to hear it:

fitzchivalry@gmail.com

Thanks.

I'm liking this album more and more with each listen, I think it's now my favourite Killers album; they've finally learnt to be consistent. Seriously, it wouldn't surprise me if I start to dig this even more on future listens. Joy Ride is really great

Here's how I rank the albums at the moment

Day and Age - 7.4
Hot Fuss - 7.2
Sam's Town - 6.8

Upon first listen, I liked it a lot. I can understand why people are so divided on "Joyride" - not sure what I think about that one yet.

The only song I didn't like was the last one, and I downright hated that one.

Thanks, Target, for your $9.98 prices!

The 'Geddy Lee vs. Thom Yorke' thread should be expanded to include Flowers.

THIS is the kind of stuff Flowers thinks will make them bigger than U2 ?

I don't think so Brandon......this is mostly shit

Just a head's up--Amazon has the digital version of the album on sale for $3.99. I wasn't all that impressed by the previews of the tracks, but for that price, I may go ahead and pick it up.

A Dustland Fairytale is growing on me (even though i liked it to start), but i still don't 'get' This Is Your Life. i'm also convinced that Losing Touch is one of the best Killers songs ever (thought still not as good as A Crippling Bow). I Can't Stay is still
