    Great rate. Brandon and I salute you.


    (I also really want this shirt)
  2. Perfect song! Also Brandon is so hot on the Can't Deny My Love cover, it's about 70% of the reason I got on board with the Desired Effect era from the start.

    Thank you for running these rate(s), @2014! I've really enjoyed following both.

  3. Thanks for running this, @2014!

    The Lonely Town middle 8 can still bowl me over at any given time.

  5. I'm curious as to the overall leaderboard of both the Killers & Brandon rates... Looks like Lonely Town scored even higher than Mr. Brightside!

  7. Wow! I need to listen to Lonely Town again - hopefully it'll grow on me this time!

    This rate was awesome. Both parts of it!

  8. Brilliant job all round everybody and once again to the always brilliant host @2014.

    'Lonely Town' is still #1 in an alternate reality.

  9. That was a good rate to watch, it went how I expected roughly.

  10. Dreams Come True should've been top 3. It's a testament to how well the song's written that it never veers into saccharine territory even though it could've at any minute. Immaculately produced, and the best way to open the album.

  15. I didn't take part but Lonely Town is clearly the best thing Brandon has done as a solo artist. Can't Deny... is way too high though.

    Can't Deny My Love is an absolute beast of a song. I still remember that monstrous chorus coming out of nowhere and completely knocking me out. Easily would've been my 11. I don't think I 'get' Lonely Town the same way everyone else does, but regardless it's a great song too.

    I'm sorry I didn't participate @2014 but it was a lot of fun to follow along! You did an amazing job.

  17. I still fucking love this album. I actually love it more than any other Killers releases.

  18. So, "Joel The Lump Of Coal" should NOT have been in last place! And, "The Way It Was" should have been a single. I love how often they play it in their setlists.
