    It's typical Indie rock - I wouldn't says it's synthy or anything but I get a Depeche Mode vibe off it. There are a couple of good songs on it but its mostly filler. The tracks on the first half of the record are my recommendations off of this. Everything else is distinctly average. It could be that the voice just doesn't click with me, I don't know but it's one of the more disappointingIt's typical Indie rock - I wouldn't says it's synthy or anything but I get a Depeche Mode vibe off it.

    If you think the Killers rock, this could be your definition of 'alternative'. However if you've heard the source material they're obviously borrowing from, you'd wonder why they decided to produce a boring, watered down version of something great.

  1. The feeling remains though that their broad emotional strokes will have to concede something to intimacy and solitude to ever really win hearts.
  2. To Lose My Life is an album made to a predefined plan with skill and no heart.
  3. For all its glum pronouncements of murder, mortality and loss, it’s an ecstatic listen, ponderous party music.
