What better way to avoid romance than listening to rock and roll? The Killers released a new album, Imploding the Mirage. The new album is vastly different from the music The Killers are known for – the Killers music I grew up with. Rather than being a mainly pop-rock album, the band took the new album in a new direction.
Brandon Flowers and the rest of the Killers group have a large 80s synth-sound in this new release. Many of the tracks reminded me of the iconic sounds of Tears for Fears, Wang Chung, and Yes. While I enjoy the experimentation and nostalgic sound, I do miss The Killers for what they were good at. This is a fun album, but not one I would recommend introducing someone to the group for the first time.
