I love Flesh and Bone, Runaways, Miss Atomic Bomb, From Here On Out, Be Still, and Battle Born. Other than those, meh.

may I ask everyone *besides Boom who just answered* what did you really want this album to be like?

I wanted it to have exciting songs like Day & Age and the first half of Hot Fuss.
so Flesh and Bone, Miss Atomic Bomb and Battle Born aren't exciting


1. Sam's Town
2. Battle Born
3. Hot Fuss
4. Day and Age

don't think it's fair to rank Sawdust since it's B-sides

yea Sawdust doesn't count.

ST
D&A
BB
HF

i like the first half of HF better than BB but BB doesn't crap the bed half way thru like HF does, It's consistently good but without the highs of HF

to be fair though I don't think that the killers will write a better song than All These Things That I've Done.

I'll have to listen through HF, ST and DaA before releasing my rankings. But it seems to me they keep getting better with every release.

I cant quite put my finger on this - and its maybe because I've only listened to the album in the car and the limitations of sound that it brings....but I'm finding Brandon's vocal performance....difficult?

I think Brandon is really strong on the album.

especially on songs like Be Still

Honestly the more I listen to this album the better it gets. To me they've finally put it all together. It's their most complete album from beginning to end. Honestly I don't find a weak song on it. That's not to say every song is amazing and it's the best album I've ever heard but there's no song on there I want to skip and it has a great sound and pacing throughout the whole album.

Heart of a Girl is the only song I don't really care for, the rest are good to excellent. Carry Me Home makes makes up for it as a nice extra track. I even like Prize Fighter more than HoaG.

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

Yea, i'm comin around on the idea of PF being album-worthy. Both are superior to HOAG yea.

BEST ALBUM OF THE PAST 20 YEARS!
