The Killers' album

Warning signs flash all over US band The Killers' new album Wonderful, Wonderful.


There's a song called Rut about being stuck in one, with a whole bridge of US singer Brandon Flowers singing, "I'll climb and I'll climb" over and over again. Then, there is The Man, one of the best rock singles of the year. The song crystallizes everything Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire was going for on its last album Everything Now.

It's good, almost enough to overlook the problems all around it, especially when paired with the quirky Run for Cover, which bounces from a Foo Fighters opening to talk of boxing champ Sonny Liston, and Tyson vs Douglas, which sounds like the return of The Cars. The new album shows flashes of the greatness that made The Killers arena-fillers for more than a decade, but it also feels like their rut is getting deeper.
