"It sounds different. It sounds like we've grown up a little bit as musicians, songwriters and as people. Overall it's still pop songs by a rock band, which is what we liked about ourselves before and I think other people did too. It sounds different, but it still sounds like us."
As much as I like The Killers and want to believe that this album is, in fact, "different," history has shown me that when bands tell the world that their new album is the best ever or has changed in a significant way I'm usually sorely disappointed.
Here's hoping this group from Las Vegas avoids the all-too-usual sophomore slump.
