The Killers - Sam's Town mp3 album

Sam's Town is the second studio album by American rock band The Killers. It was released on October 2, 2006, in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States. Regarding the album, vocalist and primary lyricist Brandon Flowers noted that he "wanted to create an album that captured, chronologically, everything important that got me to where I am today". Sam's Town has sold almost five million copies worldwide.

You know I see London, I see Sam's Town Holds my hand and let's my hair down Rolls that world right off my shoulder I see London, I see Sam's Town now. More on Genius.

The Killers ‎– Sam's Town. Label: Island Records ‎– 1706722. Country: Australasia. Track 13 is a bonus track. Almost identical to The Killers - Sam's Town, but pressed by Technicolor Australia. Recorded at Studio At The Palms, Las Vegas. Additional recording at Criterion Studios, London.

First there's the album title, Sam's Town, which pays tribute to the old-school local casino where the band got its start. Then there's the music inside, a collection of windswept rockers in the vein of Bruce Springsteen that leave the indie-disco vibe of "Mr. Brightside" in the desert dust. Working with producers Alan Moulder and Flood (best known for their work with U2, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails), everything here sounds bigger and shinier, with full-blown strings and choirs coloring epics like "When You Were Young" and "The River Is Wild. I hope that with their next album, The Killers will reuse a lot of the qualities found in Sam's Town. 4 people found this helpful.

The Killers revitalised and updated a genre that never really caught on in America, outside of singles, and made it hip. After developing an image, sound, and style that worked on both sides of the Atlantic on only their first record, what else was there to do" Why, throw it all out of the window. British pretension is so 2004. Flowers and co. digested some Springsteen records, holed up in a Vegas studio (appropriately nestled in a casino), and declared their efforts the greatest thing this side of Chattanooga Choo-Choo.
