    So what do we think so far?

    'You Overdid It Doll' seems pretty good to me, though I've not had a proper chance to listen to it yet. 'Cross My Heart...' is quite lovely, a real volume-up song.

    Anyone heard/got the full thing yet? What d'you reckon?

    I've only heard those two too, plus the Sycophant remix on the b-side of Cross My Heart... I think it's gonna be a great record. I have the 2CD pre-ordered.

    No, it comes out next month, but I have a ripped version from the radio, although it cuts off at the end, but it's not missing much. I really like it!

    I'm listening to Falcon, and so far, I really like it. I'm about halfway done, and I think it's a fantastic album.

    First listen. It's no St Jude.

    I really like the album, I've listened to it a couple times today. Does anyone have the You Overdid It Doll b-sides? I only have I Never Wanted To.

    Have listened to it a few times now and can't say it's moved me in any way. First half sounds like it could come straight from a Killers album (and do we really need a new Killers album?). Seems someone got a new synth and was so excited they forgot to unpack the guitars. Things improve slightly in the second half but not by any significant degree. Liam's lyric book must have been a bit empty too. All a bit meh...

    Liam Fray referencing Morrissey is about as far away from "unexpected" as you can get isn't it?

    Personally I really like the album, no it's not going to set the world alight but there's a few songs that make me wanna dance, so counts for something I guess :)

    Yes, I do think that we need a new Killers album. I think the synths in this album are great, and there are guitars in it, it's just not the main focus of the album, like it was for St. Jude. It's nice to hear some different things from bands, and this one works out for me.

    I've not got this yet, but hopefully will soon as I loved St Jude.

    Hello Charlotte,

    I recommend this album wholeheartedly, it is brilliant!
    Different to St Jude but brilliant nonetheless.

    Stand out tracks are:

    Sycophant
    Lullaby
    The Opener
    Will It Be This Way Forever?
    You Overdid It Doll

    If you can, try to get hold of the deluxe edition. All 5 extra tracks are great, especially Bojangles and the new version of Revolver.

    Are my clothes alright?
    Is my hair alright?
    You can say what you want
    'cause it's what we like

    At the moment, my favourites are Lullaby, The Rest of the World Has Gone Home, and Last of the Ladies. Very brilliant album!
