I'm just infinitely glad that they went with killers instead of killahs.

well put angela.

this thread will die just as soon as someone feels "threatened", "belittled", "accosted", or "offended" after me or someone else makes referance to the point that the killers are supremely over-rated on this message board.

yeah, you'll no doubt say the same thing in three years when they're featured on those "one hit wonder" shows.

if i'm wrong, i'll eat my words.

Somebody told me they had the best 5 songs opening up the album in a long time.

I had another friend burn a copy for me.

I listened. I disagreed with the initial assessment. Maybe I'm missing something.

it's not like i think they suck or anything, i'm sure they don't. i don't have any problem with them, but like coldplay, i just think they're...extremely accessable thus drawing in fans who think they've really caught onto something that perhaps...was never really worth catching onto in the first place?

that's probably too harsh, oh well.

You really think they're as accessible as Coldplay? I kinda find them to be less accessible (mostly less sonically "pretty" to the ears) which in turn makes people think that they are "better" because you won't hear them on your adult top 40 station, but in the end, it's all the same banal stuff.

i disagree. lyrically anyways. The killers lyrics are something i think i would hear from don vito's mouth. The make little sense. I have not been able to get past that song. Is the rest of the album diiferent from that song? Because "somebody told me" in my opinion is crap!

I agree with anitram and deathstare. Except swap them round with anitrams. Coldplay are a bit moodier, less 'catch and grab', which is what the Killers seem to be. They're not bad at all, they can play, write tunes that appeal, and have that 'thing' which many ordinary bands have. They're 'good' across the board rather than having an area of excellence, in my view.
I'm jaded, but it's good to have one sticking point every now and then.
