Matt & Matt close out Season 3 with another “Listener’s Choice” epipod. Finest Workfans voted for The Killers’ debut album “Hot Fuss” to be the album du jour. Though they may have been caught up in the mix of other similar-sounding bands like the Strokes, Franz Ferdinand and Interpol, The Killers have managed to put together a long and inspired career. And this is the one that started it all. And what a strong (if front-loaded) debut it is! Brandon Flowers & Co. deliver pure pop goodness on hits like “Mr. Brightside,” “Somebody Told Me,” “Smile Like You Mean It” and the anthemic “All These Things That I’ve Done.” Not a bad way to start a career.
