Here it is. Finally. Officially. Formally.
We've had a week to let this "Human" sink in. So what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Here's what some of you wrote me about the new Killers single:
"Stuart Price's influence makes their new wave sound come through" . . . "Wish it was a bit less 'Never Ending Story' sounding and a little less techno." . . . "Awesome awesome awesome." . . . "I honestly feel that Brandon's voice is perhaps too polished and lacks the grit that I love about his voice." . . . "Beautiful. I anxiously await 'Day & Age.'" . . . "Great song. I love the feeling." . . . "I am kind of disappointed. I do not quite get why their newer songs don't have that catchy hook as 'Mr. Brightside' or 'When You Were Young.'" . . . "Basically, i consider this track to dawn a new age of music for this planet." . . . "The lyrics just sound like meaningless giberish to me." . . . "The sound of this song reminds me of some German schlager music."
I think "Human" introduces an exciting new chapter in The Killers' discography. I'm a bit surprised though how easy it was for them to go from desert grunge back to their new wave-ish beginnings. I guess Flowers and the guys really just felt more comfortable making glittery, synth-driven pop after all. And many thanks for that.
