Classic rock is alive and thriving. Mix one cup of U2 and one cup of the Cars. Add a tablespoon of Queen, a pinch of Peter Gabriel, and a lead singer who can't sing, but they don't bother manipulating his voice like they do with Britney. Put it all in a blender, liquefy it, pour it into a mug and enjoy Sam's Town. You'll get arena rockers like "Sam's Town" and "Why Do I Keep Counting?", ballads like "My List", and call-backs to the glory days of Ric Ocasek such as "When You Were Young" and "Bones". Ah, yes, the Killers...the best 80s band that wasn't around in the 80s.
***1/2 out of five
