The Killers are my favourite band of all time, Dustland Fairytale is one of my favourite songs and I like nearly every killers song but I don't think this album is as good as Hot Fuss and Sams Town.
The best songs on this album are Dustland Fairytale, I Can't Stay, Neon Tiger, The World That We Live In and Human. I can't wait for there new album Battle Born to be released :)
This is a fantastic, very happy feeling album. With an upbeat pop based genre filled with synthesizers, guitar licks, lyrics that make no sense and even the odd saxophone.
A great album to listen to if you're in need of a bit of cheering up. :)
For 5.49€ I bought this newest The Killers album...and man was I surprised! It's clearly the best album they've done. Tracks like: Spaceman, Human, Joy Ride & A Dustland Fairytale are just pure awesomeness! Day & Age is a must buy for every Killers fan out there and perfect album to get to known them. Buy it!
i really enjoyed the last 2 killers album especially 'sams town',and although they have chosen a slightly different direction with this one it sounds fantastic...a truly great album with lots of chorus stomping songs that will appeal to a much wider audience,probably one of the very few bands that can pull it of..and how..one of the best bands out there..cant wait for the next one which im assured is going to be more like sams town..!!!...
Being a killers fan from the beginning mr brightside era - loving hot fuss and even more so sams town i was sceptical around some tracks, but once you listen a few times its utter genius! flowers nonsence lyrics would normally be disregarded had they come from anyone else but the melody makes them all classics!! everyone should listen to this album! human, spaceman and dustland fairytale are AMAZING songs! brandon flowers a musical genius and everyone should appricate such talent! BUY IT!
People have slated this album for not being as good as their debut 'Hot Fuss'. Personally, I find 'Hot Fuss' their best album and it is phenomenal. But so is 'Day & Age'!
The Killers have created a new sound and new image for this album. It's full of beautiful lyrics and unusual concepts and soft melodies.
I recommend this to any fan, and even to those who aren't familiar with the band yet. It has converted many people to The Killers' fan base.
Top songs are:
'Goodnight, Travel Well' - this song is particularly stunning. Very emotional and moving and may be a tear-jerker.
'Joy Ride' - fun, cool and full of humour.
'I Can't Stay' - a very pretty song with a tropical feel to it.
'This Is Your Life' - a great sing-along!
This ain't there best album, sams town claims that title by miles, but this album is still pretty dam good, i love most of the songs on this album, the only 1 i don't really like is "goodnight travel well".
