‘The AU Review’ Shares 10 Year Look Back on ‘Sam’s Town’

Anthony Colangelo, writing for ‘The AU Review’, has shared, by my count, the first Australian look back on The Killers’ ‘Sam’s Town’.

With the tenth anniversary of ‘Sam’s Town’ quickly approaching, and the ‘Sam’s Town’ shows happening this weekend, we will hopefully see more look backs published in the very near future.

You can read the entire article here.

Reflecting back on it 10 years later, I realised it was an important time in my life. Growing to love Sam’s Town helped make me a curious person.

I started to wonder and then to learn about who Springsteen and Petty were. I investigated what Flowers sung about. I discovered for the first time in my life that music wasn’t just about making a song that sounded good (even though they all did). I discovered that music could have meaning and that it could tell stories. In the battle to love Sam’s Town, I was opened up to a world that I never wanted to leave. Loving it made me learn a lot.

I was taught to love searching for meaning and about the art I was engaging with, because I had to find out what Sam’s Town was trying to say to understand its purpose. The way I was forced to engage with it was new to me. And that engagement is something I now love to repeat in my work, hobbies and everywhere else in life I possibly can.
