June 12, 2016 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Brandon Flowers is unable to listen to his band’s debut album. The Killers frontman spoke with Q Magazine (via NME and said that he’s proud of 2004’s Hot Fuss but can’t stand to listen to any songs from it anymore because it doesn’t hold up against debuts from bands of the same era.

“It’s not uncommon for people to hear things about their voice they don’t like, or the recordings,” he said. “Everybody wishes they could go back and re-do things. But I acknowledge there was some magic captured…If you ask me, The Strokes’ debut is better. Guns N’ Roses’ debut is better. But I do think we’re up there and I’m proud of it.”
