12 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This time The Killers go for a bigger, brighter sound that brings to mind more recent arena bands such as Oasis and Coldplay. In fact, Sam’s Town sounds like it was recorded in an arena. This is a grandiose album, both musically and thematically, from the faux operatic backing vocals and horns of “Bones” to the ever-earnest vocals of Brandon Flowers to the synth strings that punctuate the choruses.
