The Bravery (The Bravery)

I'm listening to The Bravery by, uh, The Bravery.

Let me say first that I think I like The Bravery.

The problem is I messed myself up with my one-line summary of their album and style.

I consider The Bravery a Scottish version of the The Killers, which I look at as a pop version of the Cure.

Which in my mind makes them a Scottish pop Killers/Cure. Which is to say, a ethnically Scotts version of a Killers-sounding Cure. Not an awesome Scotts-based cure for pop (which would be really, really nice).

That said, I do like some of their stuff. I particularly like "Tyrant" and "Out Of Line".

So I'll listen to them some more, and see if I can get past my self-induced labeling.

They also smack a bit of Depeche Mode and The Smiths and Morrissey, but that didn't give me the same killer Scottish cure for pop.
