The biggest band to come from Nevada, The Killers, release their sixth studio album, Imploding the Mirage. The result is a polished set of tracks that emphasize the talents of the group, all while deviating from the formula enough to keep listeners intrigued. Their true strength, if I had to choose one, is storytelling from the third person perspective. Initially, this talent was seen by the masses on "Mr. Brightside", and it is continued on Imploding the Mirage through "Blowback" and "Caution". Through their descriptive, step-by-step monologues pull you in, and somehow, get you invested in the life of the protagonist. Apart from the third person stories, this album contains first person accounts from the group that will be gracing the airwaves for years to come.
