  1. Brandon Flowers has gone on record saying he brought the songs on Flamingo to his fellow bandmates for the next Killers album and was given the brush-off.
  2. Let's hope that Flowers isn't the next Morrissey, putting out one brilliant album for every three duds. At that rate, we only have to suffer two more Flamingos to see what Flowers is capable of producing as a solo artist.

    Brilliant album! All the songs are good. Where as most albums have a couple of songs that you just simply skip over this album doesn't. My favourite album at the moment and one of my favourite of all all time. Full Review »

    The LP is varied and in an other, but also cool style than The Killers. Brandon Flowers experimentalizing with his first solo album and made a good one! Don't look at the critics - look at the user scores! It only has 3 really good songs, but the album itself is the great thing! It has two weak songs but it's just a interesting adventure to hear. Hopefully there'll be another solo album by Mr. Flowers or an album by The Killers which is as good as this. Could've been better but is great, anyways. Full Review »

    This album sounds a lot like a Killers record, which is generally a good thing. Unfortunately, for me, the majority of the songs weren't very memorable and half of the record sounds like the weaker tracks off of "Sam's Town". I would recommend this album to those who are fans of The Killers, but I wouldn't say this album is anything particularly special. Full Review »
