Day & Age: Not a Disappointment
Having listened to the new Killers' album a third-dozen times, I can say it's among my favourite albums released this year. It's not bloated, it's not thin, it's just right. I'm sure some people will say how much they dislike it (sure one example, so the plural is not warranted, I know), but it gets more than a passing grade from me.
And the aforementioned Chinese Democracy (see below) is a mess of noise. I listened once: never again.
