All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On Day & Age, the Killers shrink the canvas and brighten their palette, opting for big sounds over big themes. Style over substance is the right move for the Killers and Day & Age has style for miles and miles, exceeding even their debut, Hot Fuss, in its stainless steel gleam. Anchored in dance-rock though they may be, the Killers no longer sound like mere disciples of New Order and Duran Duran: emboldened by the left turns of Sam's Town, the Killers will try anything, stitching together sounds with an almost blissfully idiotic abandon.

The Guardian
With neither the sugar rush of Hot Fuss nor the blustery thrills of Sam's Town, this is the Killers' most beguilingly strange record....The Vegas band have developed a fondness for all sorts of eyebrow-raising new sounds - chief among them the saxophone - like someone suddenly discovering velvet or trying out a soul patch.
The Times (U.K.)
The first thing you notice about the Las Vegas band’s superb new album is that the sharp melodic sensibility that ran through Hot Fuss, but was frustratingly absent from Sam’s Town, is back.
