Label: Island
Key Track: "Mr. Brightside"

The Cozy Time Book Club would be a more appropriate name for this Vegas band, but we digress. Their memorable debut delivers moody, keyboard-infused pop rock that's obviously influenced by '80s bands like The Cure and Joy Division. No wonder the British press was on their dick like Susan Boyle.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
In addition to standard formats, the album was released on 7" vinyl, in a box of 11 discs.
