Skivrecension: Brandon Flowers - Flamingo

Brandon Flowers – Flamingo

Även om jag aldrig föll så handlöst som några av mina vänner, så tycker jag ändå att Crossfire är en helt okej singel (om än lite förutsägbar) från The Killers-sångaren nu när han gått solo. Okej. Inte mer. Förhoppningen var ju dock att han tagit ut svängarna ytterligare på skivan – jag gillar ju The Killers - men efter att nu ha gått igenom Flamingo för första gången så känner jag absolut inget annat än besvikelse och en svag doft av gubbrockssvett. Jag har i och för sig inget emot gubbrock; Way Out West hade några fina exempel på skäggiga män med trummor och gitarrer och jag är inte den som väjer för lite Bruce Springsteen på fyllan, men det här? Det är ju bara så galet, galet tråkigt. Så fantasilöst. Det är inte riktigt country (även om det vill ibland) men det landar väl någonstans i närheten av en modern dagis-Dylan och i sina absolut bästa stunder som Lou Reed. Mest låter det som ett oinspirerat Killers som tappat känslan för produktion och hits…och det var väl kanske inte meningen? Det tar sig lite mot slutet, men sammantaget: Ingenting för mig.

Hi! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying
to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

If you have any suggestions, please share.
Many thanks!
