I have been thinking about The Killers. I have seen them once. When Hot Fuss came out, it was a spectacle of excellent rock music and electronic influences. Great album. Every album thereafter sucked harder and harder. Sam's town was OK. When You Were Young was an awesome song, but it was the only song of sincere substance and superb composition. It was the crutch holding up a mediocre sophomore release. Sawdust...don't even get me started. I have to say that was the shittiest Joy Division cover I have ever heard. Day and Age. An attempt to reinvent? It's like the Killers all went to a gay club in Los Angeles and decided that their music wasn't dancey enough.
At any rate, I ramble. Agree with me or not, I think the Killers lost their touch and produce shitty music. Discuss.
