Nov 21, 2007 - rde on The Killers
Somebody told Mr. Brightside

The Killers are one of my currently overplayed iTunes selections. There is something about their "fast paced-narrative" music that just keeps my attention for some reason. I love it!

Nov 14, 2007 - cat408 on Bloc Party
Fantastic!

Bloc Party is one of my favorite bands, I can listen to their music over and over again and never get tired of it. They have a new single out called Flux that is going to be a big hit at nightclubs all over!

Sep 21, 2007 - Heather.Wiggin on Bloc Party
One of my favorite bands

"Silent Alarm" is one of those albums; the kind you can listen to over and over again. "A Weekend in the City" has a different tenor, but retains the quintessence of Bloc Party. Their live performances are energetic and more than worth the price of admission.

Aug 19, 2007 - AntiCowJuice on The Killers
Electronica or Rock?

Listen to them and find out... Either way, they might be a bit over played sometimes, but they still manage to keep their own unique sound.~

Jul 18, 2007 - mmelmon on The Killers
Maybe they try too hard...

...but it sure is fun to sing along.
