Out of these three albums (Snow Patrol/Killers), which should I buy?

Eyes Open - Snow Patrol

Final Straw - Snow Patrol

Sam's Town - Killers

Which is the better Snow Patrol album? And what about this other band that I used to hear about, Interpol?

Thanks so much for helping me out!

I would get Eyes Open first! It is easily one of the best albums of the year.

Final Straw > Eyes Open, even though the latter is a great album too.
Sam's Town is good if you're already familiar with The Killers. There are a few winners but mostly a lot of mediocre songs.

The new Killers is way too ambitious and ultimately ridiculous in my opinion. Which I'm sad about, of course.

I'd say that about MCR's Black Parade. Goofy.

Killers has some really good stuff on it.

Final Straw sucked. Eye's Open is excellent.

I think Final Straw is better than Eyes Open.

If you're going to go with the Killers, I'd go with Hot Fuss. There's nothing on Sam's Town that's nearly as good as 2 or 3 of the songs on Hot Fuss.

That being said, Sam's Town isn't all that bad. There's just no killer (har har) single.

I have Final Straw and totally don't get the hype about Snow Patrol. They're very meh to me.

The Killers, on the other hand...
