The Killers match postpunk guitars with a synthesizer overlay that recalls '80s New Wave without burying their sound in nostalgia. On their debut, Hot Fuss, frontman Brandon Flowers plumbs his imagination for tales of murdered lovers ("Jenny Was a Friend of Mine," "Midnight Show"), voyeurism ("Mr. Brightside"), and sexual confusion (the single "Somebody Told Me"), Flowers and his mates are obviously canny students; the total effect is of a playacted obsession, but one made irresistible by their skillful, catchy songs. If there's an occasional misstep (the painfully earnest line "I got soul but I'm not a soldier" from "All These Things That I've Done"), it seems of a piece with the Killers' influences. As it is, Hot Fuss is one of several recent releases that bring a diverting faux glamour to the mainstream rock scene. --Rickey Wright

Customer Review of Hot Fuss
melancholic melodies making it bittersweet
After listening to "Mr. Brightside" and "Somebody Told Me" I got hooked, that is with a little help from folks who fancied Franz Ferdinand.
These guys, Brandon Flowers(Vox,Synthz), Mark Stoermer(bass), Dave Keunin(guitar), and Ronnie Vannucci(drums) have absolutely brilliant melodies from the meloncholic music and in depth lyrics. The Album kicks off with "Jenny Was A Friend of Mine" as Brandon Flowers voice blisters into your ears and this is when the keyboard/synthesizer is first heard. The first track, quite different from the following "Mr. Brightside", gets hold of the listener and wants to hear more. Throughout the album the powerful strums of the bass and synthesizer, absolutely separates their music from other bands-being their strongest element.
In my opinion, these guys got a good thing going if not fantastic music career ahead. If you fancy Franz Ferdinand, The Cure, The Clash, and even the Strokes- as I do, you'll like them as well.
But I love many bands and the Killers are one of them.
So Believe the hype- The Killers are here to impress and will continue to do so.
Reminiscent of 80's sound / Great album
This album is very reminiscent of 80's new wave sound. One can tell these sin city rockers were influenced by many of the bands from that era like New Order, a little Smiths & Duran Duran. Stand out tracks are the single "Somebody Told Me, "Mr Brightside, "Smile like you mean it, & "All these things that I've done". But the whole cd is amazing with top notch production & bringing back the use of the synthesizer. Brandon Flowers has a great powerful yet melodic voice. With all that emo/punk music out today it's nice to see a throw back to the 80's synthpop sound that I grew up with. One of the best albums & band I picked up in 2004.
No Excuse In This Day and Age
I bought this album based on the catchy first single "Somebody Told Me." While this song is good, and some of the others have potential, there is no excuse for the piss poor recording quality of this album! The songs are all mid-range, with bass that cuts in and out sporadically. Not even a show-quality car stereo with MB Quarts and a manual equalizer could adjust the poor sound quality. It annoys me even to listen to it. Def Jam and Universal should be much more aware of what their label is producing, and filter out crap like this. The band is good, but I don't want to listen to this album. If listening to warped 8 tracks in monotone is your thing, then you'll enjoy this album. Otherwise, save your money until the producers can be bothered to spend more than 5 minutes on a song.
