Alright, lets do this.. we’re going to look back on some of my favourite albums of 2015. The criteria is this.. the record had to come out in 2015 and I had to love it.. that’s it..
Day 8 – Record 8
BRANDON FLOWERS – THE DESIRED EFFECT
Having said all that it’s pretty easy to insert The Desired Effect into my list of favourite records of 2015. What’s not to love? It’s essentially a Killers record. Brian Fallon from the Gaslight Anthem is doing the exact same thing right now, pull the heart out of a band and then go make a ‘solo’ record made up of all the songs that would have been the bands next album. The Desired Effect was described as a “love letter to Las Vegas” just like the Killers’ Sam’s Town and Im TOTALLY FINE WITH THAT… These are the kind of songs I want from Brandon Flowers. They’re about love, loss, regret and living the rock n roll lifestyle.
Brandon played the Wayhome Festival this year and it was one of my top 3 shows of the year.. he KILLED it.. the new solo stuff mixed with Killers songs and a couple covers.. It was outstanding..
Hey there we are together..
What Im saying is.. Im not gonna, not gonna deny Brandon Flowers talent.
Can’t Deny My Love
I Can Change
Here’s just a classic Killers song “Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine” one of maybe my 10 favourite songs EVER
We’ll dive into the top 7 starting Monday Dec 14th!
