Honestly, Hot Fuss is the only album I've truly gotten into by them, but I've liked the other singles I've heard. I used to think they were a British band. Hearing that they're from Vegas made me

Thought I'd bring this back from the dead..

I love their new Christmas track.. It's nowhere near as good as A Great Big Sled or Don't Shoot Me Santa but it's pretty cool.

I haven't heard the new Christmas track.

I'm a bit sad with this band though. Battle Born was incredibly boring in my opinion. They were never that interesting but Hot Fuss was enjoyable, but it just keeps getting worse. I still love Human even with the bad lyrics and generic style. Anything that sounds okay and has a pulsing synth I immediately like.

Battle Born is probably my least favourite album of theirs but I'm not gonna deny that I haven't given it much of a chance yet. I felt the same way with Sam's Town, comparing it to Hot Fuss (Change Your Mind is the best you infidels) Eventually though, I started listening to it more and more and now Sam's Town is one of my favourite albums ever. I was surprised at how much people were saying shit like "The Killers are BACK" after Day & Age came out. I never understood why Sam's Town was seen as some deviation for them, it's ****ing awesome.

I'm a bit late to the game really, always overlooked The Killers. But having listened to them properly for the first time, I quite like em I've listened to Hot Fuss, what else is worth giving a listen?

Sam's Town, Sawdust and the live album at the Albert Hall are all worth listening to. Day and Age and Battle Born are piss poor albums.

At one point maybe The Killers would be considered Indie/ Alternative; But because of how known they are and they are apart of a label, they can't be considered Indie anymore. As for for alternative I think there more known songs could be considered more Pop-Rock, or something that is not Alternative. Don't get me wrong though, I still like them.

Ok, so I love The Killers but they shouldn't be considered "Indie" or "Alternative" and the only reason I say this is because their music is more Pop-Rock. Their music is too catchy to be considered Indie/Alternative.
