Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.120
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "When the Killers really push the theatrics, they shine: 'Spaceman' re-imagines New Order's 'Temptation' as an alien-abduction anthem with a great singalong chorus."
Spin - p.99
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "They remain fascinated by heartland mythos, but by becoming more comfortable with their glitzy roots, they've actually found the pulse of something more authentic."
Entertainment Weekly - p.74
"[S]inger Brandon Flowers and the band construct an album that is one-third Duran Duran glam, one-third Bono majestic, and one-third fresh retro."
Billboard (p.41) - "Here the band trades in the slick mega hooks and stadium-sized rockers for steel drums, bongos and a whole lotta sax....This band keeps fans on their toes...'
Clash (magazine) (p.63) - Ranked #35 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008" -- "[A] brave change in direction towards a glorious, glossy pop sound..."

Product Description:

Personnel: Tommy Marth (saxophone); Daniel de los Reyes (percussion).

Recording information: Battle Born Studio, Las Vegas, NV.
On their third proper full-length, DAY & AGE, the Killers blend the glitzy glam of their smash debut, HOT FUSS, and the heartland rock of its follow-up, SAM'S TOWN, while throwing some stylistic curveballs along the way. Like HOT FUSS, DAY & AGE focuses on hooks and an energetic, highly polished sound. Yet it still manages to incorporate the experimental ambitions of its predecessor, this time out with a penchant for genre-hopping pastiche. Brazilian, blue-eyed soul, disco, and Afro-beat can be heard, all threaded into the Killers' trademark dance-rock.
But even while expanding their arrangements with saxophones (on the attention-grabbing opener, "Losing Touch") and steel drums (the tropical and immensely catchy "I Can't Stay), the Killers haven't lost their love of 1980s synth-pop. The anthemic "Human" is a case in point, proving that the New Wave influences that gave the band its initial appeal are still intact. Buffered by gleaming, pristine production, DAY & AGE soars and seduces; it's irrefutable proof that even as the Las Vegas quartet mixes up their sound, the appeal of their button-pushing pop endures.
