The first listen through took a bit of an adjustment, I was expecting all-out bombastic Killers anthems, but this is not that. It’s a superbly introspective, self-indulgent look at the town Flowers grew up in. There are snippets of audio from inhabitants, giving their insight into what it’s like living there. They were fine the first couple of listens, I wonder if they would get annoying in the long-term.

So it wasn’t what I was expecting but it grew on me and it’s definitely the kind of album to put on when you’re chilling out.

Rating: 3 / 5
