    For me, this album has too few Killers hits on it. I would've liked 'Jenny was a friend of mine' and 'Bling' as well. I don't think it's too early for this, they've had 10 fantastic years and they're taking a break now. If you only like the first album, like 'imthenoob', don't bother buying this one and just stick to Hot Fuss.

    This is the rarity of a hits collection from a band still at the top of their game. There's plenty more to come. [Jan 2014, p.131]

    Their grandiose mini-operas and stadium-size choruses can thrill. But to hear the relentless string of outsized anthems in a row is exhausting. [No. 105, p.55]

    Direct Hits proves the Killers have fewer actual hits, let alone great ones, than you thought and makes you wonder if they made their Greatest Hits album too early or whether they can ever legitimately put one together at all.
