What a time to be alive. Fumbling over the lyrics of Somebody Told Me, hunting down crushes on MySpace, and worrying about the exact definition of “indie rock” - Hot Fuss surely embodies 2004 (but without the facial acne). Now finally reissued on beautiful 180 gram vinyl. Relive The Killers' finest hour!

I wouldn't call Hot Fuss a lyrical masterpiece, but what the album lacks in lyrical power, it more than makes up for in catchiness and pure rock power. The first single, "Somebody Told Me," showcases this perfectly; it is a song that slides into your head and almost forces you to dance around. Even though Hot Fuss may not be the most innovative or philosophical album, it reminds me that sometimes it's great to have fun and enjoy a record on a purely sensory level - Hot Fuss is the perfect album in that regard.
