I am not a big fan of rock bands in the 2000's but they are ok. They make me nostalgic for 2004 lol.

Good video. Good song. Wish the Killers had put out an album but the songs Ive heard from his solo work so far are good.

I liked the look on his face at 1:26, "Aww, honey...you killed a ninja for me!"

Big fan of the Killers and so far the solo stuff sounds great, too. This song sort of continues in the direction started on Day & Age. And I love the video.

Decent song. Not my favorite from him, but not bad.

I love the ending of the video. Theron just has this look like "Jesus, how many times am I going to have to rescue this jackass from ninjas? Maybe next time I'll just let them kill him."

Flamingo - Brandon Flowers (Lead singer of the Killers solo album) - Sept. 14



I'm a big Killers fan, so I'll be anxiously awaiting this.

Thoughts?

1. "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas"
2. "Only the Young"
3. "Hard Enough" (featuring Jenny Lewis)
4. "Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts"
5. "Playing with Fire"
6. "Was It Something I Said?"
7. "Magdalena"
8. "Crossfire"
9. "On the Floor"
10. "Swallow It"

I'm a big Killer's fan as well and I really like "Crossfire" that's been getting a good amount of radio play lately. I'll be picking it up.

Second album he's named after a Vegas casino. Dude represents his hometown well. Can't decide if that photo was in fact taken at the Flamingo or not -- background's a little too blurry for me to tell for sure.

New album is very good. \
I can change is a particularly great song, and I love the nod to Smalltown Boy, and the use of Neil Tennant on vocals.

Fantastic 80's Pop album -- Saw him a month ago in a tiny venue here in SF, he's a fantastic showman. Very lucky to see him in such a small spot. Having said that I did see him in another small venue when he released Flamingo

I listened to 3 songs or so via Amazon Prime and personally I think it sounds bad. This coming from a big fan of The Killers. Some musicians should just stick with making music with their band.
