The Killers On The Next Album: "It's Our Most Poppy Record"

Goddammit. Brandon Flowers is on the cover of the new NME. This is the type of thing I'll struggle with for about a week when I pass it in the magazine aisle at the Borders down the street:

"No, I'm not buying it. It's $9.95 with a jacked-up import price. Well, it'll be nice to have, maybe. That's stupid, though, because you can probably find a scan of it online and just read it for free. But it'd be nice to have. Absolutely not."

In the end, I'll buy not only this trash, but some other unecessary item to "ease the guilt" of spending that much on just one flimsy publication. Then I'll bring it home and throw it onto a pile of other garbage I'll never ever look at again, let alone actually read.

Anyway, a few promising quotes from The Killers about their upcoming Stuart Price-produced third album, from the NME site:
Mark Stoermer (bassist): "Each instrument has its place, and things aren't clouding anything up. We're not trying to be bombastic. It's our most poppy record but also our most experimental."

Brandon Flowers: "We learned that you can't please everyone. But we've got faith in what we do, faith in our fans and faith in the soon-to-be-converted."

    Sounds promising. While I didn't hate the last CD ("Read My Mind" was brilliant), I didn't love it, either. I'm really digging what I've heard so far.

    And Brandon got a little hot. How'd that happen?

    That's what happens when you shave off your ludicrous bad 70s porn star 'tache.

    Oh thank GOD his mo has gone. And it seems he's given up on pretending to be Bob Dylan then as well. VERY GOOD THANKS.

    He was cute just before the 'stache and now he just looks like he needs some D'luvvin' again.
