Ah! Okay, so my whole review didn't get posted... :S
So lemme re-type the ending (and hope that it gets posted):
But not too keen on songs like "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" and the re-mixes of "Sam's Town" and "Mr. Brightside." This is
probably due to the fact that I'm so used to knowing when the guitar, drums, and bass come in, etc., that these re-mixes sounds a bit strange to me. Ruby's song, however, I just flat out dislike. Interesting lyrics, but it's a song that's not meant for
Other great songs that I haven't seen on their last two albums would be "Shadowplay" and "Sweet Talk." Both have a very addictive sound--vocally, and musically. "Show You How" and "Move Away" are also great songs that I love to listen to.
Overall, I wouldn't say this is their best work, but it's worth the buy nonetheless

They don't seem to be advertising this as much as Sam's Town, at least from what I've seen, anyway... even despite this only being a compilation album.
Even though I already have, or have heard, around 6 or so songs, the music in general has a darker
feel than Hot Fuss and Sam's Town. I have to say that I was looking forward to hearing their usual "up-beat" music... It sounds like they did a lot more synthesizing, and Mark's bass is quite strong and much more prominent than what I've heard before.
This is not to say that I dislike the album! In fact, I was quite anxious to hear "Leave the Bourbon on the Shelf" to complete their murder trilogy, and I wasn't disappointed. This would place "Midnight Show" as the second part, and "Jenny Was a
Friend of Mine" as the third, yes?
