  1. Like Vegas itself, Day & Age sometimes leans toward sensory overload. But the pull of its showgirls-and-fool's-gold glory is undeniable.
  2. Day & Age is the most consistent, confident album the Killers have created so far.

    Even when the songs feel light, when the stylistic havoc and production is almost absurd, you have to admire the glorious gall. [Dec 2008]
  4. While Day & Age manages to patch over most of the cracks in the Killers's façade, they still aren't done growing into the World's Biggest Band.
  5. The Killers have returned more ambitious than ever with Day & Age, but this time around, Flowers set the buzz bar a little lower, stating that it's the band's most playful record. And he's right.
  6. In this day and age, though, people would be better off cherry picking the best tracks for download.

    Getting mauled by that white tiger sounds a bit more exiting. [Year End 2008]

    The Killers are amazing! Day and Age is a fantastic record. Every song sounds totally different from the next, so you are never bored, but The Killers are amazing! Day and Age is a fantastic record. Every song sounds totally different from the next, so you are never bored, but they all work together quite well. Brandon's voice sounds glorious throughout, even better than it has on previous cds. My favorite songs are Joyride, Dustland Fairytale, and This is Your Life. However, I also think Goodnight, Travel Well is very lovely, and I commend them for trying a song so different from what they usually do. Though I think Sam's Town is their best album, Day and Age is superb and I eagerly await their next cd. Expand

    "Day & Age" reaches all its goals. I can't see any problem with this album and all the tracks have potential because they are excellent. This"Day & Age" reaches all its goals.

It's slick and pop-y, the pretension has been dialed down a bit and the pallet of instruments and rhythmic styles have been expanded. A welcome move forward. Expand

    Not a bad record from The Killers, but nothing spectacular. I enjoyed a lot of the music from the record, however, it's far from their best work.
