Comments from Elliah Heifetz

I think that if nobody cared about a 20 year old's reflections on high school or Ivy League puke stories, nobody would listen to The Glad Fact.

I totally understand where you're coming from -- "Losing Touch" and "For Reasons Unknown" are some of my favorite Killers tracks. I did try to include a few deeper cuts, like "Under The Gun" and "Andy Your A Star" (which I can see from the comments is a bit more of a personal choice than the others), but a big thing about the Killers for me is their ability to write real but incredibly distinct pop hits. So, I do think some of their 'greatest hits' are actually their best songs.
