meeeh.
i have a much different opinion of killers compared to others i suppose. i never really thought about making a comparison of the Killers with U2??.... either with coldplay and U2.. .. the thought has never really crossed my mind.

but back to the topic. i really like the killers because they're such a unique group that's hit the mainstream yet (all you hear these days are pop songs with the same exact sounds/rhythms). the killers kind of remind me of duran duran for some odd reason. but we all have our own opinions.

I like All these things that I've done. You should hear me singing it in the shower, perfection Parts of it remind me of the Beatles. I wouldn't really compare them to U2 but I like some of their songs. I'd love to see them live.

I love The Killers the new song they are playing live are great...All The Pretty Faces is brilliant..i always thought Brandon Flowers had a good strong voice (not brilliant but good enough)....i also think the lyrics are pretty good...they are just story telling songs they aren't meant to be Running to Stand Still brilliant imagery lyrics....

Plus their influences are not Duran Duran...they say that actually they are more influenced by U2, The Cure, The Smiths and even the Stones....and i shall be seeing them in oh under 2 weeks time

i havent listened to them in a while, i guess i got sort of sick of them. still, i do like them. the singles are annoying, but there are some good songs on there. the best are jenny was a friend of mine, midnight show, and all these things that ive done.

i think theyre good, but they need to do something very different with their second album if im going to buy it.

i disagree, and i think many others would as well.

the killers are hardly going to have an impact on an entire generation like duran duran did. the videos, the image, the music - it was all new when duran duran did it. the killers are simply recycling it. it's pretty boring, actually.

and i would be very surprised if the killers were still touring 20 years from now.

the main difference however being the killers have better songs than duran duran do. duran duran were so cheesy it's untrue (although Brandons pink jacket doesn't do him any favours).

Killers are awesome! Come on! Their album is amazing. Any album that has 50+% of good songs is a worthy album.

perhaps their sophomore album may interest me, as far as their first one...it's too poppy, too mainstream even for me...and that's not saying much

I don't like them that much but, I like there new song "All These Things I've Done." I am watching the music video now. It is brainchild of Anton Corbijn (if you don't know who he is and his relationship with U2, you should really learn). It's very strange, almost "El Topo" like, with a bit of "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" (just see the video and you will know what I mean.) Also, I was just wondering if anybody knows the names of the actresses who play the assassins. All in all, I enjoyed it.

I've liked their singles progressively more. I didn't care too much for Somebody Told Me, then I kind of caught on with Mr. Brightside, and now I really like this new single, All These Things That I've Done.

I saw them perform live at the MuchMusic Video Awards and they seem to be a decent enough live act as well.
