Battle Born by the Killers

So, the Killers recently released their sixth studio album, which made me realise I'd never got round to listening to their fourth (from 2012) or even bought their fifth (from 2017). Now I have all three and am catching up. Sadly, I didn't think a great deal of this one on my first listen — I didn't feel like I'd missed out by not listening to it for eight years. I liked a couple of tracks, though (mainly The Rising Tide and Battle Born); and I listened to it again and felt less ambivalent. I'm not sure it's going to be a favourite, but maybe it improves with repeat listens.
