"A lot of musicians (and music) are put out to pasture in Las Vegas-including, if we're to believe the Killers' debut, new wave. But the Sin City quartet won't let it fade away; in the Killers' hands it burns-not out, but with even more vibrant energy than the group's obvious sources (the Cure, Duran Duran, New Order, the Psychedelic Furs) generated in their prime. That said, A Hot Fuss is not a slam-dunk triumph. The Killers so obviously mark their forebears that you could turn these 11 tracks into a name-that-influence drinking game. And the best thing to be said for the turgid, synth-soaked ""Everything Will Be Alright"" is that it comes at the end of the album, making it easy to skip. But when the Killers hit their target-with the sinewy grooves of ""Somebody Told Me"" and ""Andy You're a Star,"" the glammy buoyancy of ""Midnight Show"" and the high drama of ""All These Things,"" which builds into a gospel-styled anthem-A Hot Fuss is a lot of memory-tweaking fun. On ""Mr. Brightside"" the Killers fuse Blondie and the Strokes; for ""On Top"" they integrate Incubus-style kinetics into a spacious instrumental arrangement. It's hard to doubt the Killers' genuine affection for music that came before them. If the Vegas denizens can effect more of these past-current fusions in the future there might be something to make an even hotter fuss about.
