    Groovy. I really like it, but at the same time I hope the whole record doesn't sound like this.

    I dig it. I'm pretty confidant in Brandon Flowers ability to entertain me at this point

    Yeah, this song is so great and a much-needed change of pace for the band. Can't wait for the record.

    Not super into it but I'm not probably not qualified to judge it since I haven't really listened to anything they released after Sam's Town.

    Song is definitely growing on me. Lyrically reminds of something Weezer would put out for some reason. Regardless excited for the album.

    Disappointing song. Hopefully a new album will be nothing like this as a whole.

    His last solo record is one of my favorite records of the last 5 years.

    I love Lonely Town. I could have seen that as a song the Killers eventually progressed too and put on the 5th record (maybe sprinkle in a little guitar so Dave doesn't have nothing to do lol).

    Dreams Come True kicks ass too.

    Flamingo > The Desired Effect but both are my favorite things involving Brandon Flowers tbh

    1000x yes. I blast that song so much. Always pumps me up.

    Song is soo good. I'll always be a little curious if Brandon did release some of his solo stuff as Killer's songs, if they would have blown up in the mainstream.
     
  19. This is really bad. :teethsmile:

    This is so funky. Sounds very Bowie-ish.... I love it and have seen/heard their other new song, Run For Cover, and it doesn't sound anything like The Man, so lots of variety for the tracks on Wonderful Wonderful.

    Its got some really bad lines, the whole USDA Certified Lean bit is kinda annoying. But again its entertaining, and based on videos of Run For Cover i'm still looking forward to the whole thing

    I like the USDA line. it fits the unabashed corniness that is this whole song

    The line also fits in well with Flowers' shtick of writing about classic "Americana" subjects and imagery. Another good example of this are the lyrics for "The Way It's Always Been" which reference football terms, the second coming of Christ, etc.
