Direct Hits showcases transition

Over the course of four studio albums The Killers have gone from cutting edge to middle of the road.

This transition is demonstrated starkly on their chronologically ordered greatest hits album, out now.

Listen as the energy of Hot Fuss and ambition of Sam’s Town gives way to the Bowie-inspired muddle that is Day & Age and the ultra bland Battle Born, which should come with a ‘Parental Advisory’ sticker, advising that it should only be listened to by parents. GC
