The Killers can sometimes get a bit of stick because they left their roots and entered into the world of mainstream-ness. Sawdust is a compilation of B-sides and unreleased tracks that, in my opinion, deserve a record dedicated to themselves. Available on double LP 180g reissue on Island, and double LP on Mercury. Try not to get too confused when you order.

- Sawdust by The Killers
7/10 Jack 25th August 2016
For a collection of B-sides, bonus tracks, leftovers and covers this is surprisingly good. Unsurprisingly, it proceeds in pretty much the same postmodern mode The Killers established so successfully with their first two albums: an engaging fusion of contemporary pop-rock and 80s references that shouldn't work but almost always does. The Killers work because they're about more than pastiche. Even when they're apparently goofing around or being completely melodramatic (which is often) the songs are well crafted.
