Really? Hot Fuss will always be their best in my opinion.

Ooh that's a tough call. I guess The Killers are so good, I can't have a favorite.

The Killers are good but I don't find myself listening to them that much anymore. Any other bands you enjoy, mate?

Kasabian, Bloc Party, and Interpol are all great groups

Bloc Party and Interpol are great. I never got the hype for Kasabian.

Day and age was bad? That's too bad, because I played "Human" and "Spaceman" to hell and I was thinking about picking it up along with Battleborn. But I just got the latter.

And back on topic I thought they were going to be amazing after I first heard "Its Time"

I was dissapointed when I listened to more of their tracks =/

I find this album to be pretty good, although it's a tad inconsistent. "It's Time" and "Demons" are both very good tracks though, and they alone make the record worthy of multiple listens from me.

I had never heard the song "Demons" before in my life, but as I was listening to it for the very first time, I found I was able to predict every single note and hum the tune as the song was playing.

I had similar experiences with most of the other songs on the album.

Pretty sad. Unbelievably predictable.

I personally love the Album Night Visions, that's why I bought the CD.
In my opinion, Imagine Dragons' music is not extremely sophisticated seen from the lyrical part. That shouldn't be too bad, at least everyone catches the meaning!

I appreciate that their songs influence the emotional state, maybe especially because of the simple elements in the songs. For example, the rhythm in "It's time" or the choir in "On top of the world" just creates an uplifting feeling. My favorite song of the album Night Visions is "Tiptoe", because I think it's got a certain complexity.
