Ok, so I really liked Somebody Told Me (Hello, New Order). I absolutely loved Mr. Brightside (Hello, Cheap Trick). And I just can’t stop watching/listening to their performance of All These Things That I’ve Done (Hello, Bowie) from Live 8.
These guys are out of this world good! I don’t think I’ve ever heard such a perfect synthesis of Pop and Rock, ever. And those hooks. My god, it’s perfect!
So yesterday I said, “That’s it, I’m buying Hot Fuss”. This was no small feat for me, because I hardly ever buy CD’s anymore (and no, it’s not because I pirate them. I just plain don’t buy music CD’s much anymore). Damn if it’s not the best debut album I’ve heard since Appetite for Destruction, maybe even since Boston! And these guys are in their early 20’s!? That’s out of this world, crazy!
And what’s really weird, is that up until yesterday I thought these guys were from the UK! They sound like they are from the UK. I thought somebody told me (heh, somebody told me!) they were from the UK. But damn, they are from Las Vegas! Cool!
And lastly, I showed my wife their performance from Live 8, and now she is madly in love with their lead singer! Great! :eek:
I’m not sure why I felt the need to post this, but I havn’t been this excited about a new band in a long time.
And now, I must leave to watch All These Things That I’ve Done for the 18th time.
Thanks for listening
