I'm liking their cover of Four Winds on the Spaceman EP

YES!

If they go with this sound, I'd be quite happy.

It's a difficult album to embrace wholeheartedly, isn't it? Something about it.

Last track is very average, the 6 minute Goodnight and Travel Well or whatever it's called. And Dustland Fairytale is Killers' in a very poor autopilot

I saw them Tuesday in the incredibly small venue, of UCI Bren Center. Fresh off my Chicago U2 Weekend, I was beat but went solo to the show (Wife went from Chicago to Buffalo for Family Trip and my boss didn't want me gone that much)

INCREDIBLE SHOW!!!

Just recently finally got this album and gave it a few spins. It's not bad but it doesn't seem to be even close to the ballpark of Hot Fuss. Favourites right now are Losing Touch, Human (minus the WTF 'dancer' lyric), Spaceman and The World We Live In. I think I also liked one other track in the middle of the album, forget which one but it will come to me. Yeah, so I still think that the cover art is more impressive than the album itself.

ETA: This Is Your Life and Neon Tiger. Those are the ones I also like somewhat.

This Is Your Life reminds me of Paul Simon.

This album is growing on me a bit more with every listen. It is certainly a good pop-rock album. I enjoy it more than Sam's Town and less than Hot Fuss. Damn, now I'll be tempted to spend money that I cannot afford and see them live in December!

It's not a great album. I threw Hot Fuss on in the car on the way to Toronto and was amazed by how good it has held up and kinda saddened the Killers will never output anything that decent ever again.

Day & Age has been a grower but I really don't like that final track Goodnight, Travel Well, just not all that impressive....

Has anyone heard White Demon Love Song? It was a B-Side for D&A, and is going to be on the New Moon Soundtrack.

Pretty much. Had a wonderful time seeing the Killers live, but I can't deny the only songs that really drove me wild were from Hot Fuss. That is a very good record, and the peaks of the album are a thrill. But everyone in this thread knows as much.
