Brandon Flowers embraces the 80s! No better description can be given to his second solo album.

The internationally known front-man of The Killers shows his pop side on this new album, that was produced by the Grammy-winner Ariel Rechtshaid – who’s work include Taylor Swift, Haim, Carly Rae Jepson and many others.

The album is a clear influence of artists such as Duran Duran and the Pet Shop Boys.
After a dark and heavy album with The Killers (Battle Born), Brandon leaves the strong guitar sounds and creates an album based on synthesisers and samples.

Although very enjoyable, it is hard to pinpoint a clear definition of this album, in which it is only possible to know that it is the work of Brandon Flowers because of his distinguishable voice.

The first song “Dreams Come True” seems to be a transition from The Killers to Brandon Flower’s pop aspiration. Percussion beats mixed with brass and a female background seems to slowly take you to away from what we know as The Killers … to bring us to “Can’t Deny My Love”, a song with a synth base beginning and a feel that takes us back in time, to be followed by an 80s beat and electronic elements.
