****** Well I was always going to love this but it's actually even better than I was expecting. I love that (aside from Mr. Brightside being ahead of Somebody Told Me) it's in the chronological order of single release and the tracklisting is pretty much as perfect as it could have been. Bones is one of their weaker singles, so I don't mind having that missing at all and I prefer that For Reasons Unknown was included. I love that A Dustland Fairytale was included instead of This Is The World We Live In. And while I adore Here With Me, if it's a choice between having that or The Way It Was on here, then there's no contest. The Way It Was easily. I also love the two new tracks and think that they fit in so very well. The only thing that's missing that I would have liked to see included is Tranquilize, perhaps in place of For Reasons Unknown, but then I often forget about it anyway and indeed only just realised a few minutes ago that it hadn't been included so it's clearly not worrying me much at all. All up, this is probably my favourite thing released this year and a perfect way to cap off a magnificent decade from my favourite band.
**** Durchschnittliches einer Durchschnittsband. Bis auf Spaceman kein Song den ich zu ihren Best-of (wie Midnight Show, Shadowplay, Uncle Jonny, Sam's Town, Four Winds und Everything will be alright) zählen würde. 3.75*
**** Vrij geslaagd compilatiealbum van de Amerikaanse postpunkband: "The Killers" !!! Persoonlijk ben ik niet de grootste fan van deze jongens, maar ze hebben zéker enkele hoogvliegers op dit album staan !!! Afgewogen toch ruim 4 sterren, hoor !!! ☺
****** Nun, hier drängt sich natürlich die Höchstnote auf. Das Beste der Killers aus nunmehr vier Alben, wobei die neueren Werke mit Sicherheit höher zu gewichten sind. Eine prima Platte auch für unter den Weihnachtsbaum.
Highlights: Read My Mind / Human / Spaceman / A Dustland Fairytale / Runaways / Miss Atomic Bomb / The Way It Was
***** It's always very hard to critique a GH package especially when you're a fan of the artist supplying the material. Personally i'm not a fan of running these in chronological order and tend to play my favorites first anyway. I would've preferred 'Bones', 'The World We Live In' & 'Here With Me' in this compilation but what would I know?
So yes it's a Killer greatest hits package (pun intended) but it's not perfect for me.
