The new Killers album is really bad UPDATE: and Brandon Flowers is a twat

see title

THE KILLERS singer BRANDON FLOWERS believes RADIOHEAD frontman THOM YORKE is wasting his talent as a songwriter. The JENNY WAS A FRIEND OF MINE star wishes Yorke would stop writing experimental rock and return to the style of radio-friendly 1990s hits such as CREEP and KARMA POLICE. Flowers says, "He should feel grateful that he's been given the gift to write pop songs - which he needs to write again."

Also: The Album Leaf, Barenaked Ladies, The Black Keys, DJ Shadow, Junior Boys, Xiu Xiu and Yo La Tengo.
