I think the violin part Adrina Hanson did sounds amazing! I admire you all for the work that was put into this album.Aside from the smash hit single "When you were young" I didn't feel much connection with the rest of the album. Songs that drifted and glided over a monotone ocean that was more lazy than uplifting.

I'm glad I gave it another chance. Sam's town is a fun record that really is enlightening to listen to from the first track to the last. Sure, some of the material here is weak compared to others, but altogether it's got a lot of staying power. "Bling" (Confession of a King) is a great track that is deep and emotional. "Read my Mind" is a fun and meaningful song that has a fast beat and I myself enjoy playing while driving. "Enterlude" is less than a minute long but is a charming piano ditty that adds some diversity to the track listing. The guitars and overall mood from "Uncle Jonny" is superb and is a track I always enjoy hearing.

Indie, Folk, Rock and Pop seem to all be words that have described this band the past couple years. Considering how many bands out there are rising and falling by the minute, I think The Killers are a band on the rise, and we maybe haven't even seen how great they can be. As I learned, Sam's Town is worthy of a second stay.
