Good first half of a record, spotty 2nd half. All These Things That I've Done is a wonderful track.

I've seen them 3 times live. Once at T in the Park this past summer where they were pretty good, another time in Atlanta where they were atrocious and another time in NYC where they were atrocious.

They are absolutely hit or miss at best live, the singer tends to be off key and has a bad case of nerves. Every time I see them on TV I feel bad for them because Brandon Flowers cant stay on key. Like on SNL, they did pretty damn good the first time, but the second song was fucking terrible.

Live is where a band make their living, The Killers dont have the chops live yet.

The Killers are still my favorite new band. I can't get enough of their music - from acoustic sets to covers. I still think they have the brightest future of the new up-and-coming bands - Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, Keane, Modest Mouse, and Arcade Fire.

Thanks for reminding me of their upcoming 5/3 show in Denver. Gotta get tix!

you're without question, out of your mind.

keane blows, but the rest are good and kick the living batshit out of the killers.

and that, my friend is fact. my opinions always are.

I also saw them at T last year
I saw then a couple of weeks ago (Glasgow, jan 20) headlining the NME award tour. Maybe it was the atmosphere and the crowd, but they were a lot better than they were at T in the Park. I'm looking forward to seeing them again at this year's T.

Interpol are kicking the living batshit out of the others, The Killers join them in kicking the living batshit out of them even though I like them all

I do agree with the part about the live shows. I love the album, but I was very dissapointed when I saw them live. So, unless I'll see them at some festival (which will probably happen) I won't be paying money to see them again.

Wow, IWasBored, you must live some life with over 20K posts!

You are right, I should have never tried to post my opinion on a new band that I found exciting. I mean, how dare I have the audicity!

By the way, it is true that I am new to this whole internet forum thing, having a family and a career doesn't leave a whole lot of time to post subjects in forums, but I enjoy reading the opinions of other U2 fans.

Speaking of U2, just because I don't post as much as someone like yourself does, does not mean that I am not just as big as a fan! Case in point, my first daughter is named "Alison" if that gives you any clue as to how big of fan I really am. Sorry to go off on a rant, it just kind of burns me when pretention trumps exceptence.

I don't either. And I agree with you about the Killers. I mean, I like them okay but I don't think they have sustaining power.
