Y'see, there's blowing one's own trumpet, and then there's this. One can only assume The Killers' Brandon Flowers prefers to purse his lips against a Harold Bishop-style tuba...
The singer (pictured) has told NME that his band's forthcoming second album is one of the finest records of the last 20 years.
The weekly music 'paper quotes him thusly:
"We just have to make the best album that we can. And we're doing it. This album is one of the best albums (of) the past 20 years.
"There's nothing that touches this album. And that sounds like I'm being cocky, but I'm just so excited."
Cocky, no. Being a complete c*nt totally out of touch with the possibilities of music and its development over the past 20 years? Probably.
Flowers told the 'paper that he'd recently fallen in love with the work of Bruce Springsteen. Born To Run was, of course, released in 1975, so I guess he's saying The Killers' new album won't top that. Tunnel Of Love, though... ergh.
