Musically, this is definitely one of the best CD's I've ever bought. The Killers are hot indeed! This album is really varied across the 12 tracks (there is a bonus track not listed): wonderfully musical, extremely lyrical and full of real feeling - and the melodies are reeeeally catchy. Truely an album that you can play the whole way through and every song will move you!
FABULOUS INDIE ROCK!!!!!
My only beef is that the packaging is a bit dodgy, with an incorrect track listing(!WTF how that slipped by the publishers God only knows!) and there are no lyrics.

Apart from its glamourous casinos, never-sleep nightlife, drive-through wedding ceremonies and Andre Agassi, not much has come from Las Vegas – the city of sin in the heart of America’s Nevada desert. But with the arrival of The Killers, all this seems bound to change. Comprising of David Keuning on guitars, Mark Stoermer on Bass, Ronnie Vannucci on drums and the delightfully androgynous but decidedly heterosexual Brandon Flowers on vocals, The Killers recently released their debut album Hot Fuss to critical acclaim. Formed back in 2002, their music is described as part new wave and part new-millennium post-punk – fancy words for incredible lyrics and damn fine rock ‘n roll music – and draws heavily from influences like The Smiths, The Cure and Oasis, while still being completely original and true to who they are and where they come from. These are songs about jealousy and paranoia, androgynous girlfriends and cuckolded boyfriends, ambition and desire to rise above everyday events. Their debut single, Somebody Told Me, shot to the top of the charts and is a definite highlight on the album. Their current single, Mr Brightside (a delightful tale of jealousy written within two weeks of getting the band together), is another highlight, and will undoubtedly help with propelling the band to mainstream stardom. Other notables include Midnight Show and Jenny Was A Friend of Mine (two thirds of a murder trilogy), Smile Like You Mean It and All These Things That I’ve Done (with a gospel choir chanting “I’ve got soul but I’m not a soldier”). Hot Fuss is one of the albums to watch in 2005 – the music is awesome, the lyrics memorable and the songs super stylish. And then there’s Brandon Flowers of course, who looks awesome when wearing eyeliner and lip-gloss. A delightful find and highly recommended.

Some of their best songs on here. But as a whole, the album is not that impressive.
