Who sings on 'Uncle Johnny?'

I've listened to the few of these tracks that I've been able to download, and I think that one of the big problems is that every song sounds so vastly different from the next---I can't imagine this album having much of an album feel to it at all.

well... it's not as bad as rolling stone makes it out to be, but it's certainly not as good as hot fuss... when you were young is the best song on the album IMO, like has already been stated.

it's not awful, but i think people are thinking it's awful because it's not on par with the first album, thus making it a bit of a disapointment.

I'm digging the new album but its different from Hot Fuss... all the elements that the Killers use are there but its different IMO, but its been a while since I listened to Hot Fuss. Actually "When You Were Young" is most reminiscent of stuff from Hot Fuss but then the other songs go elsewhere. I like the bonus tracks such as Where the White Boys Dance and All the Pretty Face... wonder if the US version will have those songs.

I think besides When You Were Young, the standout tracks to me so far in no particular order:

(1) Reasons Unknown
(2) Read My Mind
(3) Exitlude
(4) The List
(5) This River Wild

I think the rest such as Sam's Town, Bling, and Bones are decent with Bling having a great finish/ 2 minutes, IMO.


The bonus tracks are really good IMO.

Maybe people might not like this album b/c it can sound overwrought as opposed to "cute with a wink."

I think people have in mind "concept" and maybe there is a concept, but I dunno if it flows well.

My favorite tracks:
When You Were Young
Sam's Town
Read My Mind
Bling
For Reasons Unknown
This River Is Wild

Not a bad album overall, but certainly far from spectacular.

Enterlude and Exitlude are retarded.

Apart from "When You Were Young", I like "Read My Mind" the best.

Read my Mind is my favorite overall I think...yes above when you were young

Ok, before I said that I would like this album no matter what, and that still holds true, but to be fair

There are SOME problems I have with it...the lyrics in Bones are good for the most part, except I think he says it's only natural at parts in the song that are really, well, unnatural....just doesn't fit well.

I find that the album does flow really well, I just wish Uncle Johnny wasn't on it honestly. I don't know why, it just doesn't feel right ot me for some reason...but I've never liked that song ( I heard it on something before, I think they performed it llive on the hot fuss tour)

Other than that, it is only their second album, and if I remember correctly a certain other group out there didn't make such a fantastic second album either

Yeah, but October doesn't try to be anything more than a collection of mediocre songs.

October isn't a moon-shot, overwrought, faux-concept 'let's write an album about America and Highways and Makin' It(TM) album. If The Killers didn't try to drape the shitty songs in the pretence of some big picture of Americana than I could just skip them and be done with it and enjoy the four or five good cuts on the record.
