Even with a few missteps, your visit to Sam's Town will be quite enjoyable. The Killers prove time and time again that they can make fun pop rock singles like no other band.

Really good album, this album has some of the best tracks by the killers, and what makes them even better it’s that they feel timeless.

Favorite tracks: For Reasons Unknown, Read My Mind, Bones, When You Were Young, Uncle Jonny, Sam’s Town, This River Is Wild, Why Do I Keep Counting?

My first listen to this album was more fun than I can remember an inaugural listen being for an album. It's not particularly innovative or anything, but what it gets right are enthusiasm and catchiness.

Both come in spades.

The Killers have a knack for making songs to blend well with early 21st century America, and yet, make it timeless in retrospect. In 2006, post punk and new wave revivals was beginning to wane and yet, there was a sense of refreshment with the heartwarming beat that the Killers carved into their own.
