The Killers and Audioslave new tracks!
In a recent interview with RollingStone.com, Tom Morello described the record (REVELATIONS) as "Led Zeppelin meets Earth, Wind and Fire," adding that it's a "big hard rock record with a funky bottom." Among the album's many highlights is the groove-driven lead single, "Original Fire," and "Wide Awake," about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. "It's probably Audioslave's most political song to date," says Morello.

Brandon has been quoted as saying that their new sound is somewhat Springsteen-influenced; this particular example is heavy on the Bruce. for those who are fans of that, they'll eat this up. if you're not, you'll probably focus on the fact that the instrumentation is pretty good, probably the best part of the song. it's well produced, with strings and synth and changing dynamics and everything.
