The Killers - Sam's Town
I kind of inadvertently discovered how good the Killers were. I had heard a couple of songs and then a friend took me to see them on their first big tour in 2004. They were amazing live and when this album came out they delivered on record! I loved it when I first heard it and still love it now. From start to finish, "Sam's Town" is as good as it gets. Not specifically a concept album, there is an underlying theme and the songs fit perfectly together. Definitely, one of my favourite records of the 00's. I just had the CD for years, then came across the picture disc and couldn't pass it up.
