goodnight, travel well - the killers.

I am a Killers fan. Don't get me wrong. However, I think I'm a fan of what they could be more than a fan of who they already are. The Killers seem to bring out release good material but for about every track I've heard from them, there's a bit of that more umph needed in the track to make it a great track. So far, all their tracks to me are ok-to-good on that ok-good-great-classic scale.
