I love it, but the Killers can pretty much do no wrong for me

I'm predicting a 68 Metacritic score for the album...not bad, but I don't see it impressing the critics much.

For those who either can't download the leak or are refusing to, here's some live videos to keep you busy:

Sam's Town
Enterlude/When You Were Young
Bling (Confessions of A King)
For Reasons Unknown
Read My Mind
Uncle Johnny
Bones
My List

Besides MTV, where else is the leak?

Is the backlash in part due to Flowers flauniting his ambitions and intentions?

I think a certain singer used to do that, comparing his band to the Who when people would wonder "You who?"

Anyone know when the tickets go on sale for the December 6 show in Atlanta?

I must say I'm a bit disappointed with this album. I've only listened to it once, so maybe my initial impression will change, but for now, I don't think it's a strong effort. Certainly not at the level of their first album.

My mom thinks that Brandon Flowers sounds like he'd fit in a punk group and that the lyrics are about satan.

Crap crap crap.

Overblown garbage that tries to be so much more than it actually is.

And I liked the first album.

There are a few standout tracks as it's been said (my favorites being This River is Wild and Why Do I Keep Counting?), but overall a very disappointing affair.

Really hoping this grows on me.

My thoughts exactly. I'm definetly giving the whole thing more listens.

I'm a little disappointed. But the first one only had about five good songs anyway. I really like Read My Mind and This River Is Wild.

Yeah I sort of Agree, the other songs are still okay though.

I like this album so far

I'm trying to savor it so right now all I have to say is that the title track is awesome

The MTV leak site does not work with my version Mozilla Firefox, so once I opened it in the evil Explorer, it streamed fine.

Will stream it again before deciding to brashly bash or sycohphantically get flowery about it like Flowers himself.
