The Breakfast Club.

Up until a couple of years ago, one weekly event I always especially looked forward to was the single reviews in the Guardian Guide. For you readers either unfamiliar with it's greatness or those from outside the UK, the Guardian Guide comes free with the Guardian newspaper every Saturday highlighting all general cultural things for the week ahead. The single reviews used to be it's high point, as the song of the week was generally praised while everything else was acerbically panned. Somewhere along the line, the reviews became toned down, and actually lost their USP. Imagine my delight yesterday when reading the guide to find that the reviews had returned to form, and made me laugh out loud when I read the review of the Killers latest effort:

"The Killers
Read My Mind (Vertigo)

One day someone will remake The Breakfast Club, and the Killers will get to write the soundtrack. Then, hopefully, they'll fuck off. In the meantime, avoid Read My Mind, another nauseating homage to the airbrushed 1980s intensity of A-Ha and U2."

Genius. More here.
