Day & Age by The Killers
Released: Nov 2008
Label:
There's no doubt the Killers are out to rule the rock world. Day & Age is big, odd and ostentatious and whether you care about Brandon Flowers' Bono/Morrissey interpretation and melodramatic, sometimes silly lyrics ("Are we human or are we dancer?"), you can't deny this is one catchy affair. Their devotion to the '80s is nothing new: Duran Duran, Pet Shop Boys, U2 and Bowie are filtered into the mix. But it's the big sax trills, mighty horns, fall-to-the-knees guitar solos, "Wimoweh"-ish chants and funky Caribbean beats that prove these guys aren't slacking their way to the top.
