Brandon Flowers – Flamingo (Album Review)

Submitted by / 10 years ago / Album Reviews

This album is almost exactly what one would expect to be created by someone named Brandon Flowers. It is easy, care-free, flowing music from start to finish but it lacks a lyrical punch. The album trickles effortlessly throughout but flirts dangerously with becoming pleasant background noise rather than a must-listen-to album. With a slow tempo embedded in the majority of tracks, I reckon this fella would be a decent warm-up act – maybe for the likes of The Killers.

Stand-out Track: Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts – In an album that merges track after track this one just about stands out.
