This is possibly the best album I’ve purchased in years. If I may borrow from a Sum 41 album title, and a pun on the band name itself, this Killers album is indeed "all killer, no filler." Tired of albums with one or two songs worth a repeat listen? Give Hot Fuss a go. You shan’t be disappointed. I can’t wait for their follow-up effort.
Bravo, Killers, bravo!
The Killers: Giving Life to the new Genre
by Hass Lunsford - 29/11/2016
It’s rock you can dance to. Some people call it the new ’new wave’, some people call it synth pop. I call it dance rock. Complete with killer synth hooks, simple 1-2 dance beats and house-style drum fills, the killers combine indie-type garage vocals with a sound that’s irresistibly modern and urban. A sound that’s simple but layered.
I downloaded this album immediately upon release in 2004 and have not been disappointed since. Every song is exceptional. And my favorite song on the album hasn’t really gotten much airplay - it’s ’Jenny Was a Friend of Mine’. The Killers almost singelhandedly put dance rock in the limelight, helping pave the way for similar acts The Bravery, Bloc Party, and various other flavors of the week, as well as re-establish less known new wavers such as The Faint. If you like the electronic dance rock sound, also try lyric-free Ratatat.
If you haven’t downloaded this album yet, where have you been?
They’re On Top - The Killers

The Killers are definitely the best new band in America today. There’s something on this album for anybody. Synths, Blasting chords, Perfect lyrics, and some amazing dudes. Brandon, Ronnie, Mark, and Dave have put together some of the coolest alt. rock tracks in years, and people, they just started. If you have the album and love it, keep on rockin. If you don’t, buy it now or else your missing out the sharp, stylish band from Vegas. Ladies and Gentlemen, The Killers. Oh, watch out for their new CD Spring ’06...and you thought Hot Fus was good. -Double E
