After giving it a few more listens I really do like it, but it's my least favorite Killers album.

This is exactly how I feel too. It's certainly a solid album and I'm really enjoying it; however, I'd rank it as my least-favorite of their records. It has some great moments but it lacks the intensity and teeth that I came to love them for.

It's dissapointing, but it ain't worse than listen-only-to-the-singles Hot Fuss.

I like Hot Fuss quite a bit but I think Sam's Town and Day & Age are stronger.

I love BB but I hope it isn't the direction U2 goes in

They've already done it with ATYCLB.

MAB. Safe. Very safe. It's a decent tune that would have fit on Hot Fuss.

Not as awful as the other stuff.

Is it just me or is AMOT terribly underrated? It's amazing and arguably my favorite song on the album. I was hoping it would be the next single. MAB is okay but it's not my favorite on the album.

I think A Matter of Time and Battle Born are my two favourite tracks on the album.

But they're not up against much

The title track is indeed solid. I also love "Be Still". I realize it may be an acquired taste for some but it really floored me the first time I heard it and I keep coming back to it. I'm disappointed when looking at the setlists for this current tour because it seems they're only playing a handful of these songs in concert. They played nearly everything from D&A on the previous tour and it seems like this one is getting shafted, which I find puzzling.

Runaways is literally the only song on the album that I remember.

Is it just me or is Brandon Flowers' voice just too annoying? I used to like the Killers, but the sound of his singing has just taken it's toll over the years. It's not soothing at all..way too whiny all the time.
