Review of The Killers – Direct Hits (Universal Music Canada)

Killers

To celebrate their first decade of music making, Las Vegas new wave rock band The Killers assemble their biggest hits for their first retrospective release. And what a bunch of hits there are here: From the Springsteen-sized anthems of When You Were Young and Runaways through their first hits Mr. Brightside and Somebody Told Me, a pair of new songs (Shot At The Night and Just Another Girl) don’t break the mold as much as simply continue down the path that the band has traveled thus far. With one decade down, there are hopefully many more to come for The Killers.
