A Dustland Fairytale
This Is Your Life
I Can't Stay
The World We Live In
Goodnight, Travel Well
A Crippling Blow (Bonus Track)
Play.com ReviewDay and Age sees Las Vegas indie quartet The Killers return with their third album of new material. A continuation of the concept established within their second album Sam's Town, Day and Age is an irresistible glitter-ball of fun that includes the critically acclaimed single 'Human'.Taking all of the grandeur and fashionista charm of their previous albums, Hot Fuss and Sam's Town, The Killers have built upon their established sound to deliver in Day and Age an album that will make dancefloors quake with its dandyish neon beats and big statements. Acting on influences from song-writing giants such as Bruce Springsteen and U2, The Killers' lead singer Brandon Flowers projects epic storytelling lyrics amidst a shiny mix of galloping bass lines and smoky synths.Produced by Stuart Price of Les Rythmes Digitales, Day and Age captures The Killers recognisable sound in a whirl of buzzing horns and stomping beats. With melodies that will stick in your head and invade your soul, Day and Age is a vast album that sparkles with dazzling anthemic tracks.

Their best album yet!

This is a fantastic, very happy feeling album. With an upbeat pop based genre filled with synthesizers, guitar licks, lyrics that make no sense and even the odd saxophone.
A great album to listen to if you're in need of a bit of cheering up. :)

For 5.49¿ I bought this newest The Killers album...and man was I surprised! It's clearly the best album they've done. Tracks like: Spaceman, Human, Joy Ride & A Dustland Fairytale are just pure awesomeness! Day & Age is a must buy for every Killers fan out there and perfect album to get to known them. Buy it!

another 'killer' album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 31/08/2009 15:51:07
i really enjoyed the last 2 killers album especially 'sams town',and although they have chosen a slightly different direction with this one it sounds fantastic...a truly great album with lots of chorus stomping songs that will appeal to a much wider audience,probably one of the very few bands that can pull it of..and how..one of the best bands out there..cant wait for the next one which im assured is going to be more like sams town..!!!...

Never heard the Killers before buying this album, absolutely love it.
My favourite track is Joyride. Now need to buy previous albums to hear their previous work. I am now officially a Killers Fan! And how cute is he! lol x

A fresh new sound
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 10/08/2009 16:26:43
People have slated this album for not being as good as their debut 'Hot Fuss'. Personally, I find 'Hot Fuss' their best album and it is phenomenal. But so is 'Day & Age'!
The Killers have created a new sound and new image for this album. It's full of beautiful lyrics and unusual concepts and soft melodies.
I recommend this to any fan, and even to those who aren't familiar with the band yet. It has converted many people to The Killers' fan base.
Top songs are:
'Goodnight, Travel Well' - this song is particularly stunning. Very emotional and moving and may be a tear-jerker.
'Joy Ride' - fun, cool and full of humour.
'I Can't Stay' - a very pretty song with a tropical feel to it.
'This Is Your Life' - a great sing-along!

This ain't there best album, sams town claims that title by miles, but this album is still pretty dam good, i love most of the songs on this album, the only 1 i don't really like is "goodnight travel well".

Not the best of the killers but still very good.

Unlike Hot Fuss & Sams Town you have to listen to this album a few times to appreicate it fully. The songs are delivered in a different style to what we are used to from the killers. A dustland fairytale is a amazingly written song and delivered perfectly and has a powerful meaning behind it similar to Goodnight travel well.
Songs like Spaceman, Human, Neon Tiger and I can't stay are catchy like all other killers songs yet slower. This is the killers not at their best but still performed in their own unique style. If your a fan of the killers buy this album and give it a chance, if your not listen to a few demos or their singles and then buy if you like what you hear.
