I think its pretty bad. Read My Mind is ok, For Reasons Unknown is alright too, but as a whole its weak. Really bad lyrics too.

All the "we wanna be like Springsteen" stuff is turning me off from it, and I'm not even into them in the first place. I think I'm one of 3 people who don't own a copy of Hot Fuss.

I like When You Were Young, but even from the first listen parts of it made me cringe.

When You Were Young has some really bad lyrics in it. "On the back of a hurricane"

If you take a song and break it into pieces, a bad lyric or weird/ clumsy metaphor is always gonna stick out...

The last two songs are bonus tracks. I'm assuming this download is a UK version...

Ah... Interesting... The production is definitely sounding different than the first album...

i can't understand how anyone can make a coment about an album on 1 listen! surely you need to listen to an album at least 3 times before you can give any creditable review/opion.

Not always the case. There are some albums that hit me immediately, and you just know upon first listen that what you are listening to is something special.

Of course, there are other times when it does indeed take a few listens to gather an opinion. This album falls into that case for me. I have now listened a few more times, and I can honestly say I still don't think it's a great album, and this is coming from someone who loves Hot Fuss.

I'm not saying the whole thing sucks, as there are a few songs on there I like, but overall, I don't think it's on the same level as the first one.

Generally I find myself either agreeing with you on a lot of music or liking your assessment of albums. So what you said has a put a bit of a damper on my anticipation to get the CD on the first day.
