I'm listening to Hot Fuss in its entirety. The album starts stronger than it finishes, in my estimation, but it has enough peaks to sustain long-playing interest. One thing that I'm noticing this time around, hearing it on Kim's 70s stereo with the speakers bought off some V-Town drug abuser instead of in AAC format on the iPod, is that the production makes a bigger difference than I'd initially thought. The record sounds crowded and like the levels are too high. But that messiness is one of its principal strengths.
