HTDAAB vs. Hot Fuss

i love U2. i love The Killers. i love HTDAAB. i love Hot Fuss. but which album is better?



1. Vertigo vs. Jenny Was a Friend of Mine = Vertigo. All the way. Jenny is good, but Vertigo is a super track.

2. Miracle Drug vs. Mr. Brightside = close, but Miracle Drug takes it. it's so much deeper lyrically than Brightside is.

3. SYCMIOYO vs. Smile Like You Mean It = Smile Like You Mean It is great, but SYCMIOYO is, again, so much better in it's meaning and importance.

4. LaPoE vs. Somebody Told Me = Love and Peace. No doubt.

5. City of Blinding Lights vs. All These Things That I've Done = ahh, the battle of the 2 biggest songs on the albums! CoBL wins, but ATTTID gives a nice run at it.

6. All Beause of You vs. Andy You're a Star = again, very close, but again, U2 wins. Andy You're a Star is a pretty out-there song, though i love it.

7. A Man and a Woman vs. On Top = wow, this is close. very close. but the Killers win this round! On Top is pure magic. Best song on the album.

8. Crumbs From Your Table vs. Change Your Mind = Crumbs has a great message and all, but i like the music of Change Your Mind better. Killers win again!

9. One Step Closer vs. Believe Me, Natalie = One Step Closer wins. I never really liked Natalie that much.

10. Original of the Species vs. Midnight Show = Original wins. Midnight Show is great, but doesn't compare.

11. Yaweh vs. Everything Will Be Alright = this one goes to the Killers. EWBA is such a GREAT song! Yaweh isn't as good.

12. Fast Cars vs. Indie Rock n' Roll = battle of the 2 alternate songs. Indie Rock n' Roll wins, but Xanax & Wine would have knocked out both.



thats U2 8, Killers 4.

There is only one song on The Killers album which I consider to be really good, and that's 'All These Things That I've Done'. However, City of Blinding Lights is now one of my favourite songs from the album, so it loses out.

U2 12, The Killers 0.
I'd be interested to see what would happen if HTDAAB was pitted against X&Y

yeah, The Killers are a glorified Alternative Duran Duran for this decade

doesn't mean I don't like them, only when I phase out the amazing lyrics....

I love Hot Fuss but I wouldn't even begin to compare it to HTDAAB. Probably a comparison with Boy would be more accurate since they're both debut albums, but then again Boy would win anyway.

It's funny to compare a young band's debut album with the album of a band that's been around since the late 70s. But like discothequeLP, I know alot of young people these days that are and have been very affected by the Killers' album, much like I was when Achtung Baby came out.

This thread just cracks me up.

No-one will even remember The Killers in five years, and thank goodness for that.

We don't know that yet, dude. The Killers album has been huge, and people have really connected with the band. I think the only true conclusion we can draw about The Killers' longevity will be after their sophomore album comes out. I'm willing to give them that growth period to show and prove their merit.

Hot Fuss is a good 80s revival album, great 80s pop.

The killers are crap. Somebody told me and Smile Like You Mean it are crap songs. Two reasons not to buy the album! Makes me fuc#ing laugh at the crap bands that people go on about like The Killers and Kaiser Chiefs being really great bands. But in all truth they are strum happy useless punk bands. Fuc#ing dross! I don't rate that highly U2's latest couple of albums but they piss all over the crap that these bands put out!
