Debuted at #6 in the US with 194,000 copies. More than 100,000 copies less than Sam's Town, which debuted at #2.

While I agree with you that Sam's Town is great, I know we're in the minority, and I think that, mixed with the economy is why it didn't do as well here as Sam's Town did. ST was super anticipated after Hot Fuss. D&A on the other hand, I don't know that that feeling was still there.

I guess right now I would rank them -

1. Hot Fuss
2. Sam's Town
3. Day and Age

But I think they're 3 for 3 when it comes to producing solid modern pop albums. They aren't world-beaters but who cares? They write some good tunes.

I really like Forget About What I Said a lot. It's quickly becoming my favourite b-side from the album.

I've listened to the album about 4 times now...very consistent but missing the hits IMO.
Human seems to be the only one that had that potential(the music and melody are fantastic), but that chorus is just too incredibly cheesy to allow the song to be a hit.

The album sold 200k in the UK to go number 1, with the fourth highest first week sales of the year

Behind

Coldplay
Kings of Leon
Oasis (Who sold less than a thousand more)


The UK is a fifth the size of the US, yet they're selling more there, looks like it's time for the Killers to move to the UK

It has already been a hit worldwide though....
