CD of the Week: Hot Fuss by The Killers

I feel like I'm stuck in the Eighties for some reason lately with Transylvania 6-5000 being the Movie of the Week, and watching Pauly Shore is Dead and now this CD. Granted this disc came out in June of 2004, but i'll be damned if it doesn't sound like it was made in that decade of excess. Any one of the tracks sound as if they would fit in a John Hughes movie. The Killers do a good job of bringing that type of feel to their sound, almost like The Cure but more up beat. The disc is pretty solid in it's song construction and most songs are rather good. I chalk it up as another of those rare discs that you put in and let play while you're working on a project or just cleaning the house. I give the CD **** out of *****.
