Sounds like The Killers, but better
This whole album is good, just know
that up front. You can do what the kids used to do—“buy” this
music at a “record store”—and you will be happy. But let’s
say you want to go track by track. First download “Disarming The
Car Bomb,” a burbling rocker with an endlessly re-playable outro
that sounds like Springsteen hooting over a battered barroom piano.
Then go for the Auto-Tuned “Heartbeat” and the creamy tropical
bliss of “On Foreigner.” And why stop there? You also need “No
You Don’t,” which borrows its tasty keyboard lick from Cyndi
Lauper’s “All Through The Night.” This song is about drugs, and
it gets echoed a few tracks later in the howling refrain of "The Drums," which might as well be called "The Drugs." That’s how
Vapours works: The songs don’t sound much alike, but they bleed
into one another. They’re slippery, and over too fast, and they
leave behind a trail of mist.
