The Killers, Hot Fuss – absolutely fantastic album. Catchy bass lines, nice riffs and intelligent use of keyboards and vocal effects : they’ve been compared to Duran Duran, Joy Division, Oasis and U2 – hrm. Not sure that quite gets it – I’d be inclined to throw a comparison to The Police in there as well, but maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, of the 11 tracks on my copy, 10 of them are good, and of those, the first 4 are terrific. Definitely worth a listen. (I might get another copy myself as I’ve probably worn this one out : many thanks to the lovely Bob who put this in my Christmas stocking!) Imagine the music industry releasing a CD where nearly all the tracks on the album are worth listening to – I’m stunned!
