I could not wait for Brandon Flowers solo album to be released this month. The album is titled “Flamingo” and was also released as a deluxe edition. Who wouldn’t purchase the deluxe? You wouldn’t want to miss a great song.

My initial reaction was I didn’t love the album but wasn’t disappointed in my purchase. The first time I listened to “Day & Age”, the latest album from The Killers I felt the same way. After listening to “Day & Age” several more times I liked it more and more. I’m assuming that’s how I will feel about “Flamingo”.

The album has many references to Las Vegas, Brandon’s home town. Right now my favorite tracks are “Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts”, and “Swallow It”. Flowers recently announced a North American tour beginning in Los Angeles on November 10. No Cleveland date has been scheduled.

It would be impossible for me to say anything negative about Brandon Flowers or his music. I’m listening to “Flamingo” until I love it, and crossing my fingers for a Cleveland date to be added to the tour schedule.
