Perhaps unsurprisingly, it sounds an awful lot like The Killers. While someone like Kele took a bold step in direction only hinted at during his "day job", Flowers's first solo offering could probably slip onto Sam's Town unnoticed. Starting off in languid Bruce Hornsby-ish fashion, it soon builds towards a soaring (of course) chorus that invokes some classic love / religion stuff ("And we're caught up in the crossfire / Of heaven and hell"). His voice is as distinctive as ever - and there's even a warbley bit of falsetto that approaches a yodel. Some will moan that he hasn't taken advantage of his new-found freedom and spread his wings a little, but 'Crossfire' is still perfectly pleasant fare that should keep Killers fans entertained until the band return in the next year or so.
