Day & Age [UK Import]
Released on November 25, 2008
International pressing of the Las Vegas-based alternative band's 2008 album includes one bonus track: 'A Crippling Blow'. Inspiration has never eluded The Killers, and it's a damn good thing it hasn't, because their third studio album is full of their finest songs to date. Together with bassist Mark Stoermer, guitarist Dave Keuning, and drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Flowers helped to mold the album into 10 songs that work best together as a whole, each individually describing an evolution of the Las Vegas band's sound. "We're always pushing ourselves," says Stoermer, "and there's a lot of diversity here-from anthemic rock to dance songs." Flowers adds: "We felt like Sam's Town was a continuation of Hot Fuss, and we feel like this is a continuation of Sam's Town.' Mercury.
