The Killers Wonderful Wonderful CD

Review by Thomas Bleach

For their fifth studio album The Killers have gone back to their roots to deliver a sound you didn’t realise you missed so much. “Wonderful Wonderful” hears them recreating the magic that their first two records captivated and offers a new mature insight into their lives and political opinions. The album contains some of their best songs in the last 10 years and hears them perfecting a sound that will see them headlining arenas again. Kicking the proceedings off with the melodramatic (and slightly underwhelming) title track the band gives you a nostalgic old school rock sound. Quickly changing it up with a groovy electronic synth-rock sound “The Man” delivers you quirky lyrics that you can vividly imagine lead vocalist Brandon Flowers strutting around singing to. The political glam rock sound then comes out full steam blazing on the anthemic “Run For Cover”. At a length of 10 songs the record is quite short but they hold onto your attention for the full 43 minute duration. The sound bounces between anthemic electronic rock and empowerful rock ballads with touching lyrics and emotive storylines. They’ve proved yet again why they are one of the most loved bands. There may be three tracks which are underwhelming but a 7/10 is still a decent ratio.
