Wonderful Wonderful: Finding Their Sound
The band expresses itself in a harmonious mix while also being playful and self-assured. What makes Wonderful Wonderful so alluring is through the compelling combination of different clips. For example, there’s positively stunning integrations of an announcer speaking when Mike Tyson falls on stage, another of a preacher’s sermon, and women swooning lyrics alongside Flowers (I found myself swooning too).
For a little while, I forget where I am: I’m happily floating in this pool of The Killers’ innermost thoughts. Flowers is hypnotic, hushing throughout the music to let the guitar or drums speak instead. Later, he pitches his strong vocals to ground us again. It’s as if he’s waving quietly before moving to shake our shoulders, pleading that we listen already.
