Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей The . Hot Fuss. The Killers. Released June 7, 2004. Hot Fuss Tracklist. Jenny Was a Friend of Mine Lyrics. Hot Fuss is the debut effort from American alt-rock group The Killers. A Morning Glory-esque helicopter intro gives way to funky Duran Duran basslines and obvious New Order influences, ultimately combining to create one of the best albums of 2004. Notable in the collection are two parts of the Murder Trilogy Midnight Show and Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine. As the trilogy title suggests, both songs concern murder and deception. The first track in the trilogy, Leave The Bourbon On The Shelf , appears on the 2007 b-side complication Sawdust. Hot Fuss is a hell of a record. The first 5 tracks off this sensational debut effort could easily be five tracks of a greatest hits album. This CD pretty much epitomizes the new wave rock of 2004. A perfect blend of synth pop, indie rock, glam, and dance all rolled up into one. Verified Purchase. Great album from The Killers. Saw them live after Sam's Town was released and they played lots from this album. Brilliant live. Album 2004 11 Songs. The rest of Hot Fuss builds on the promise of those singles in thrilling ways, with Flowers serving as the intensely bemused ringmaster of a low-lit, high-drama circus. The Killers possessed the swagger of stadium-headlining heavyweights on their debut-and it immediately established them as one of the new millennium's biggest rock acts. Genre: Pop Rock. The biggest reason for Rocks downfall was the fact that we were unable to praise albums such as Hot Fuss for what they were, masterpieces. So bands moved on, searching for the sound that would be their seminal moment until they crashed and burned. Rock had reached such a plateau of sound nothing was good enough, and here we are now

One of several fully-formed debut albums to launch an indie band into the stratosphere during the 2000s, "Hot Fuss" outranks all of them with its expertly concocted heady mix of post-punk revival and dance-rock with new wave and synth-pop. The Killers hail from Las Vegas and the icy, neon-soaked hedonism of their hometown can be discerned throughout the album, from the heartland electronica of "On Top", "Believe Me Natalie" and "Midnight Show" to the gospel-informed "All These Things That I've Done" and "Andy You're A Star". Homogeneous is not a word to describe this album. It is diverse and wonderfully assorted in terms of its facets, with influences ranging from Bruce Springsteen, Duran Duran, The Cure, and Depeche Mode, as well as the lyrical reverie, romanticism and poetic derisiveness of Morrissey. However, the album's hit singles "Somebody Told Me", "Smile Like You Mean It", and "Mr. Brightside", resplendent with cavernous riffs and ubiquitous choruses, are now indie classics in their own right, with "Mr. Brightside" especially being an era-defining anthem of the highest order, a true masterpiece that must be heard to be believed."Hot Fuss" is an unashamedly decadent, derivative album that infectiously delivers on its incredibly promising opening salvo, absorbing a wealth of genres and styles, assimilating them in order to appropriate a trailblazing succession of brisk, guitar-driven synthtronica sonic confections with purposely abrasive production. Without the evocative, haunting "Mr. Brightside" included, the album would not be as exceptional as it is. Thankfully though, the track remained intact upon its release in new millennium America and the UK, whose recent partiality to facsimiles of garage rock was ceremoniously supplanted by The Killers' unique brand of anthemic desert dance-rock. In 2004, The Killers carved out their own niche to become one of the vanguards of pop rock during the indie explosion, crafting a heavenly, nuanced, vivid collection of allusive, sparkling compositions with one foot firmly in the past and the other reaching into in the future. Despite its vast commercial concerns and omnipresence, which is in itself a monumental achievement for any indie band, "Hot Fuss" is loaded with funky basslines, swirling keyboards, propulsive drumming and maximal guitars, all of which recall the superficial pomp and catchy hooks of glam and synth-pop, but the commanding presence, ostentation and recondite lyricism of charismatic frontman Brandon Flowers elevate it beyond the modern rock standards that crashed and burned, failing to resonate with the masses on an enduring basis. The Killers captured lightning in a bottle with their debut album, and although they would go on to expand, evolve and improve in terms of songwriting and musicianship, they would never again be as dynamic, vivid and powerful.

Ynonno
Such a great album—too bad it doesn't translate to vinyl very well. It doesn't sound bad, per se, but it doesn't benefit much from the format. I doubt this was remastered for vinyl from the original digital masters.

MeGa_NunC
I agree with  modernwax. The sound quality of this release is horrendous. Out of the 1000+ records in my collection, this has to be the absolute worst sounding one.

Fearlesshunter
as with many early-mid 00s albums - poor and unimpressive sound quality, which is a shame, because this was one of the seminal albums of that era. I wish they remaster this specially for vinyl

Quynaus
This can’t be official. Surely? . . . . .

Ese
Very disappointing audio quality... it doesn't sound properly mixed for vinyl. It sounds like a compressed digital rip, and that's honestly probably what it is. The 2017 reiusse standard edition on black vinyl sounds SIGNIFICANTLY better

Clodebd
My tonearm didn't retract automatically at the end of side A, this is the first time it happens with my turntable, it's an Audio Technica AT LP-60. Does anyone have the same problem with this release?Great heavyweight vinyl, cool color variant but sound is kinda low for my taste.

Akinozuru
i have the exact same problem with this one: https://www.discogs.com/The-Killers-Hot-Fuss/release/8564231

TheMoonix
I have the same problem. You can see the last groove on side A go back on the LP so it keeps pushing the tonearm back so it will loop the sound. I believe some of these are misprints and it looks like we got them.

Lli
Happened to me as well! Never had problems with that before until I played this vinyl,

Braned
Visually well made pressing but it's very disappointing to listen to, flat and muffled sound. No good.

Winawel
This is a very disappointing pressing. Just played it with my new turntable, amplifier and speakers (that are providing an excellent performance): lots of pops and hissing all the way, but also sound is muffled compared to the CD I own, particularly (outrageously) on side B. Really, not much better than the counterfeit release I bought when this album was unavailable in vinyl.

Beardana
there are two advantages here:1) it is an orange translucent vinyl.2) it sounds almost like the Killers "Hot Fuss" album.and I won't write long list of disadvantages of this release, connected with sound quality.for me it's just awful. I think, this one is really the worst in my collection(

Adaly
The extra tracks are mediocre if you ask me. But you can always skip them ????????. Sound quality is the same as the original release.

GoodBuyMyFriends
Happy to say it's a pretty good pressing overall. Absolutely flat and clean out of the box. Can't imagine the source is remastered but I would say it's worth picking up. Seems to me it's the first coloured pressing of the UK version of the album!

playboy
This was released as an exclusive by Sunrise Records in Canada on November 23rd.

Shalizel
Could someone confirm please if Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll is on this one - i.e. a true UK version.

Ucantia
I didn’t bought the record. I have the earlier pressing so i skipped this. I wished it would have been US version.

Centrizius
Thanks for the update! Care to comment on pressing and sound quality?

Gir
I checked the vinyl here in Finland. It is UK version.

blodrayne
Where’d the 500 quantity come from? Anything to back it up?

Realistic
No, this is definitely in the four digits - at least

Manesenci
Hull, HMV still has quite a few copies for sale, popped in yesterday 08/11/18

salivan
it looks the same release as the uk one same orange hype sticker

Tholmeena
Bought this in UO NYC - opened it at home - to my surprise - it was a Translucent-Orange color! What is going on? Anyone got this in Orange instead of Blue? (the sticker says "Sky Blue Vinyl" of course... weird :O

Mash
That's odd, my guess it's an error but the orange coloring is a newer release of Hot Fuzz from UO. The sky blue vinyl is an older version of the album from UO.

Nagor
Just got my copy from UO. I did order the orange, but the sticker on the front says "blue"...SMH

Clandratha
same thing with me, i got an orange copy with the cover torn in the middle :(

Wanenai
Same thing here... UO MTL .... I guess i'll have to create a new release.

godlike
Any body selling a copy hit me up! ill buy it :-)

misery
side a: 20 minsside b: 26 minshow geniousdo me a fav

Ynneig
I have got to say this pressing is amazing. Especially on a really nice set up you can hear more detail than any digital version. You can hear the sustain in many of the instruments, you can actually hear the plucking of the bass guitar and electric guitar and even some subtle nuances that I never before noticed. Over all a great pressing, although it does require a bit more volume than a regular record. My only real complaints are the packaging. The jacket is thin like the Justin Timberlake single for "can't stop the feeling" and I wish somebody would be smart enough to make poly-lined picture sleeves, that would be the best.

Sti
Sold out according to the UO website . . .

I just went to UO in Toronto and they had it on the shelf, it does say on the Canadian store it is sold out so check your local UO.

Fecage
No hissing on mine but quite a few pops on the first track. The download code comes with MP3s at 96kbps, I have no idea how they think that is acceptable.

Celore
Mine actually sounds pretty good. No complaints honestly. I don't have the black pressing to compare to but It sounds like a regular official 'good' pressing to me.

Chillhunter
Bought this for good price at my local record store. And i got to say i'm actually happy with this pressing. No or minimum surface noise. Great attention to detail in terms of instruments. Highly recommend this release. Might be a little high on the price but it is worth it

Ueledavi
Is there any indication this is an official release? I can't find much evidence for it existing at all, let alone being official. The tracklist certainly screams bootleg.

Maridor
Can anyone comment on how this sounds relative to the JK02 pressing from earlier this year?

Dagdarad
Exact same cut as the “JK02”, just heavier vinyl. I think it sounds fine, minus some surface noise here and there.

Tantil
For some reason, they are ending the run of this pressing. Evidently a new pressing/release will be available in November...http://store.acousticsounds.com/d/129327/The_Killers-Hot_Fuss-180_Gram_Vinyl_RecordIt's going to be about $5 MSRP higher than this release. I can't say i'm impressed with the sound, maybe slightly better than the CD (curious of the source). Maybe it was originally recorded digitally which is why...who knows.

Kazijora
This album gives me hope, always. Every song is a story.

I'm a Russian Occupant
Mine says 2016 at the bottom of the back of the main sleeve. I don't know why it says 2017 in here. Maybe they were planning to reissue it in 2016 but fell through? In general i guess it sounds alright, to me it sounds a bit compressed and maybe somewhat quiet, but at least i didn't get bad surface noise as others, i'm still halfway through, let's see what else i find out.Edit: Damn i spoke too soon, Change Your Mind has its fair share of pops and crackles around the middle specially. there were some noisy moments on a few other tracks. I will just keep the album cause i like a lot of the crack...er tracks and it was relatively cheap, also the parts that sound good i think are adequate.

August
this release is a joke, before the album was re-released in 2017 I bought this at a local shop and Side 2 definitely has a small spot where the audio is missing (in the song "Believe Me Natalie") so I took it back and had them check every copy (5 others, hey I really wanted it) and they all had the same problem so the source master has it, lol...and what's worse, the store actually continued to sell them so ya know, buyer beware...luckily it was re-released so we can all keep our arms and legs and be happy!

I've gotta disagree with some of the other reviews of this pressing. It sounds good, but no way is it 5/5. I'd give it 3.5/5. It's pressed much too quietly, I have to crank my system all the way up to get it to the volume I want to hear it at. It's also got A LOT of surface noise. Constantly crackle between tracks and over the quieter intros of many songs. Thankfully most songs on the album are pretty loud and drown it out. The album being pressed so quietly makes this worse, because turning the volume up just amplifies the crackle further.Definitely worth getting if you love this album as much as I do, but don't expect perfection.My copy also has the labels on the wrong sides of the record, but I'm assuming it's just a one-off error as I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else.

fire dancer
I'm far from an expert, but I feel like there's a lot of hissing on this one...

*Nameless*
Can anyone tell me if the vinyl for this release always opaque or translucent blue? Hard to tell from pics. I have one of these (silver foil stamped cover) but the vinyl definitely is translucent blue-- the photos for this release make it look opaque. Thanks.

Thohelm
Just checked my copy and the vinyl is definitely translucent blue.

Dandr
Mine is translucent, if that helps at all. Sound isn't great - very distorted.

blac wolf
Stay away. Terrible quality. Really Bad Nice colour mind

If you guys want a more in-depth look at this pressing, I unbox it in the video linked below:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzDHC9osNcUCheers

HeonIc
Sounds amazing. What an album. So excited to have this!

Snowseeker
Glad I ordered this. US gets Change Your Mind instead of Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll on the UK reissue.

Rolling Flipper
A shame, too - Change Your Mind is probably my favorite track they've ever made.

Steel_Blade
Finally this re-issue released! I placed the pre-order for this in May 2016... Sounds great so far, finishing up the A side atm. Inner sleeve picture(s) are cool too. 5/5

Anararius
Is this the white vinyl version? I found some pressings online with the 602557056426 number, but with a 2016 release date

Vichredag
Has anyone compared this pressing (ASIN: B01DVG3ZZQ) with the US reissue which was also released this year (ASIN: B01HGRBEH2)?

Kare
Ah. Looks like the US version keeps getting pushed back, hence no listing here yet. http://boards.vinylcollective.com/topic/120193-killers-hot-fuss-re-press-10th-june-2016/?page=10 ... amazon.ca showing October 21, amazon.com showing November 4. I'll hold back for now as we're not sure what the tracklist will be like in the US pressing (CYM vs. GIRNR), though reviews of sound quality for this Euro issue have been glowing.

Heri
How does this pressing sound compared to other official releases?

Shakagul
LCDParade How does this pressing sound compared to other official releases? Just listened to side A. Nice pressing, no clicks or pops.Quality of sound is good, no compression heard, soundstage is wide and open.

Acebiolane
cant agree more. sounds good on my entry level setup

Cel
I can agree! Sounds really good. Solid good pressing. Recommended

Marilace
Just had a full listen through and I have no complaints about the sound quality.

MrRipper
I'm listening right now! It's ok. The pressing itself is fine, it's not too noisy or anything. I haven't done a full comparison, but on first listen it's not really any better or worse than the CD - there's maybe slightly more breathing space in the bass & vocals if I'm being generous, but it's pretty much the same.

Jarortr
DOES ANYBODY KNOW IF THE RUMORS OF A VINYL REISSUE ARE TRUE?

Sha
Yep, a vinyl reissue 10th anniversary edition. They're gonna release on January 13th.http://www.universalmusicenterprises.com/killersthe/news/detail?id=723

Araath
http://www.ccvinyl.com/hot-fuzz/602547859303 yes theyre true however theyre pressed for uk sale, but some online stores in us should have it

Arakus
http://boards.vinylcollective.com/topic/120193-killers-hot-fuss-re-press-10th-june-2016/ Seems legit so far from what's provided to us.

bass
It's nice looking, but i only manage to put it on my turntable with some pressure due to a too small middle hole.The sound is not the best, but i could be worse.Overall worth the 15€ i've spent on it, but only if you saw it more as an collectible. Otherwise just buy the cd

Crazy
Hi. Can anyone please clarify something for me. I bought a copy of The Killers UK "Hot Fuss" on light blue vinyl (limited numbered release) back in 2004 from a reputable record store (Selecadisc in London). I was under the impression that only 2500 numbered copies were pressed. I'm looking to sell my copy but the number that I have is 2947! I've checked with a few people on line, who have Killers sites, who seem to know a lot about this and I've been told that it's a genuine. One guy told me that he believed that 3000, not 2500 of the UK version were printed and released and that 2500 of the US numbered blue vinyl came out, not 2000,! Who knows, maybe it makes the higher numbers rarer! I hope someone can help as I don't want to sell someone a dummy. Thanks to anyone who can help me with this. I'm confused. I've got a copy of the Mr. Brightside 7" on white vinyl (limited to 500 copies) and this came to me via the label back in the day, so I know that one's the real deal. Life eh, never simple! Cheers. Adam.

Yggdi
This is an awful bootleg. Sound is very bad and on side 2 there are sections of audio actually missing!

lets go baby
Absolutely agree with You! Also, print quality is awful.But, man, the quality of sound... i have never heard such an awful sound on vinyl.

Mogelv
I agree with the posts below...I have #2266

Modigas
Fairly decent pressing, sleeve is garbage I will say. But if your looking for this specific album and don't want to spend a lot, this will do.

Sarin
Don't be fooled to buy any of the counterfeits,unofficial,Sound is crapppp!

Najinn
More than 2000 copies pressed as I have number 2125 that is 100% the 2004 pressing. I also have it signed from the 4 members of the band from an instore signing when this was released in 2004. Back in hmv in dublin...

Ustamya
do you fancy Selling it? i would be interested :-)

Chankane
Just found this at my local record store - this bootleg actually has really good sound quality! Definitely happy with this purchase. Hope this helps some of you out there.

krot
I have this version and there's a section (2-3 seconds long) where it goes completely silent. As if nothing was pressed in that section. The audio also slows down for the last 2-3 songs on the album. Side A was OK. Sibe B is pretty bad.

Wizer
I read nothing but negative reviews concerning Lizard King Records' various pressings of this album prior to purchase. It bummed me out but I decided to pick one up regardless due to the ridiculous cost of a legitimate pressing and my love for the album being so great I could no longer bear not being able to spin it on wax. Colored vinyl was a bonus. To be honest, the pressing does not sound as full as vinyl should; it's closer to the sound from an iPod. That said, it wasn't terrible either and I will continue to spin it until the band represses the album (it will happen sometime but who knows how long). Overall, I'm more than happy with the purchase for the price I paid.

Frostdefender
Fun Fact: 2000 Copies pressed.... I own Nr. 2151... Haha

DART-SKRIMER
I have number 2125.... and I bought in 2004. Unofficial one was pressed in 2013... All Bar codes match

Vaua
My version matches this one for color and matrix but is numbered 2944. There is no unofficial version listed on discogs that seems to match it, it's the exact same blue as here, none of the transparent or dark blue of later re press.

Fiarynara
That's the unofficial version.

Hidden Winter
Don't buy this version. The pressing is awful. I bought mine at Camden Market and am binning it after one play. It sounds as if it is playing at the wrong speed . . . maybe 30rpm. I had to play another albumn straight after to check it wasn't my belt that needed changing. Avoid!

Low_Skill_But_Happy_Deagle
the worst sound ever...

Iarim
This is not a review for the music, but for this pressing itself. Previous reviewers say this sounds like shit, but honestly, I didn't think it was that bad. It certainly isn't on par with most records, but it doesn't have any distortion or anything. For perspective, it sounded like I was playing an MP3 version through my stereo system. As for the packaging, you can definitely tell it is a bootleg. The cardboard is quite flimsy and the writing on the back is low quality and even a little hard to read over the blue background. Overall, this thing is worth the $30 I spent on it (especially considering real copies are going upwards of $150) but don't spend too much on it, even if you've been dying to get this album like I have.

Whitehammer
Anyone who has this bootleg: how does it sound? I know the black pressing is supposed to sound terrible. Is this one any better?

Sudert
The blue pressing doesn't sound that good too, but it looks very nice.

Super P
It sounds worse than SHIT! :( Just found out today, and I wish I read this comment first. The black pressing of this lizard king pressing is not only distorted through certain songs, but is off-pressed in that the pitch is completely messed through many of the tracks. Save your money and AVOID AT ALL COSTS! I hope the color vinyl is better...

Goldendragon
This pressing sounds like SHIT. Do not buy.

Fenrikree
Thank you, I was on the fence about this one.

Simple fellow

Warianys
There is a seller on eBay selling the counterfeit pressing for $99. It matches all the details of the counterfeit.

lifestyle
How can i determine if it's a counterfeit/bootleg?Person said it's brand new, sealed and blue.

Onath
how to buy this item??

Mitars Riders
Just thought I'd say that I have the acid green copy. It sounds absolutely terrible. Like an entire record of ringtones.

Mojar
I've found a copy online for $26 which seems like a steal but I'm hesitant. Is this possible? I suppose it would be a red flag that it says the release is 2011 which would be impossible since Lizard no longer owns the rights. Just how many bootlegs are out there and what can I do to ensure a legit copy?

Kelezel
attention! the limited no.168 is being offered again and again from different sellers... so it must be a counterfeit (bootleg)

Nnulam
i have this version but the sleeve is not numbered, any ideas ?

Molotok
Does it sound like crap? IF so then it's most likely a counterfeit..

Vertokini
Yes there were un-numbered light blue uk copies,

Camper
I have just bought this. It is numbered and has 'Lizard 011X' etched into the run-out. Do I have an original? I heard there is some new fake/unauthorised blue and red vinyls in circulation.

ALAN
but the sound quality is barable ? like its not extremely overpowered with surface noise or inner groove distortion ?

Kardana
It's "okay", but nothing compared to the real deal..

Xarcondre
I am thinking of getting this, What does it sound like ? because some bootlegs sound aweful ! is it decent ?

Siralune
if you have the light blue copy,then thats a original uk release,the ones on lizzard king,that are red,solid blue and Turquoise are all bootlegs,fakes call them what you will,but they are collectable,and are still nice to have....steve

Jake
have bought all the colours: Dark Blue, Dark Red (almost bordeaux ;o) and Green and I think all are fake ;o)At each sleeve is the same "individual" number printed - 0168 ;o)))

Venemarr
They all have #168, so do my blue and red copy. Please contact that seller and tell him that Island Records/Def Jam is after anyone who is selling these, as they are unofficial bootlegs. In fact, they really are after anyone.

Nto
What is the number you have? I stumbled a few weeks back to some copies on a London record store in Camden, they all had the same number of 168, they were selling them for 12 pounds and they had several copies. Now there is someone on ebay trying to get 50 pounds of a copy like that.

Dori
If you hold the record towards light (the sun for example), is the blue transparant? If yes, you got an original, if no (solid blue vinyl), you've just bought a fake, unofficial bootleg.

Grokinos
there are also 5 to 10 un-numbered promo copies given to contol group staff

Dodo
most of the 100 copies had slight cover damage,due to how they were packed for shipping

ᵀᴴᴱ ᴼᴿᴵᴳᴵᴻᴬᴸ
yep, mint, no bends or crease's on my copy, steve

Onoxyleili
So you have an un-numbered version? shame about all the corners

Quemal
Hi! How much are you wanting for this record please?
