'Sam's Town' is The Killers best record. It's inspired, thematic, full of great songs and most of all, Brandon Flowers' criminally underrated lyricism is in top form. He's got a style that at first listen/glance might sound/look like fairly random word choice and overwrought metaphors but on closer inspection can be very compelling and deep. Pair that with his vocals and huge guitars and you've got a badass album.
Favorite Lyric: “The teenage queen, the loaded gun, the drop-dead dream, the chosen one. A southern drawl in a world unseen, a city wall and a trampoline.”
