Sam's Town is the second studio album by American rock band The Killers. It was released on October 2, 2006, in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States. Regarding the album, vocalist and primary lyricist Brandon Flowers noted that he "wanted to create an album that captured, chronologically, everything important that got me to where I am today". Sam's Town has sold almost five million copies worldwide.

Sam’s Town, the second album by American indie-rock group The Killers, leaves synths and vocal manipulation behind in an attempt at capturing the ostentatious showmanship of the American mid-west. The album name is taken from a casino in Las Vegas, the groups hometown. Interestingly, Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall sits on the corner of Flamingo Road, which would later provide the name for frontman Brandon Flowers‘ first solo album. The record spawned four singles: the ultra-successful lead, When You Were Young, which was followed by Bones, Read My Mind and For Reasons Unknown.

Sam's Town is the second studio album by Las Vegas rock band The Killers, released on October 2, 2006 in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States. The album is said to be influenced by the works of U2, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, among others.

Is Sam's Town the best album by The Killers? BestEverAlbums. com brings together thousands of 'greatest ever album' charts and calculates an overall ranking. This album At A Glance. Sam's Town by The Killers (2006) Release date: 2006-10-03 Overall rank: 381st. Accolades: Top 10 albums of 2006 ( 7th ). Top 100 albums of the 2000s ( 74th ). Top 500 albums of all time ( 381st ).

Because ‘Sam’s Town’ (named after a casino in their seedy home city of Las Vegas) is clearly the same band of Anglo-maniacs who brought metrosexuality mainstream with ‘Hot Fuss’. They’ve just scrubbed off their make-up, beefed up the vocals and found the turbo-charge button on their tune-making machine. If there’s one obvious new noise on this record, it’s actually that of U2’s ramped-up, stadium synth-rock. It’s also an album preoccupied with judgement – both from the back-sniping Las Vegas peers The Killers left spluttering in the Nevada dust on their fast-track to fame and free designer trainers (see opener ‘Sam’s Town’), and The Big Man himself. Jesus, the Devil and a host of angels all pop up along the 12-track ride to wrestle with Brandon’s married, morally upstanding Mormon soul ( It’s hard trying to keep on the right side in this land of free rides – ‘Blin. ).

On Sam's Town, the Killers attempt to incorporate several components of the Springsteen formula: super-sizing their guitar sound, creating fictional characters to externalize their angst, singing boldface banner statements in an impassioned vibrato. Most tellingly, the band's willingness to flirt with ambition is so daring that they include an "Enterlude" and an "Exitlude", bookends that aspire to set these songs within a setting that may or may not be based on the Vegas townie casino of the album's title.
