iTunes Review

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ second album further refines the band’s anarchist sound. Just as their debut album, 2003’s Fever To Tell, modified and sculpted the approach and energy of their early EPs, here the band transcend beyond their power trio schematic and explore the sonic possibilities of the recording studio in greater depth. This attention to detail never derails into the artsy shtick that you might expect from a band that’s toured with the White Stripes and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and often sounds as if they’ve been personally tutored by Sonic Youth and PJ Harvey. Instead, the extra textures and expanded dynamics mean that a song such as “Fancy” transforms into a tug of war, its throbbing keyboard notes battling singer Karen O’s quavering screams until the band retreats to near silence, or that the static and sirens that set up “Phenomena” give way to brutal powerchords, a choir of swooning voodoo voices and an ingratiating chorus. Even their sweetest moment, “Cheated Hearts,” keeps an ominous tonal howl underpinning the girl group heartbreak of its melodic heart.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs!!!

This is a brilliant album. The great thing about it is that every song is different and they are all really fab! I would recomend 'Gold Lion', 'Fancy', 'Cheated Hearts' and 'The Sweets'! It is by far there best album and i am a huge fan. BUY IT! IT Is AMAZING!


Its been said its not as hard hitting as fever to tell, but that does not stop it from being a quality album. it also sounds more produced which is a good thing in my books. Oh and karen o's voice is as amazing as ever. I advise you people to purchase!

Great Follow-up

Discovered in the wake of the Strokes' popularity and the subsequent garage rock revival, New York's art punk trio the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are comprised of singer Karen O, guitarist Nicolas Zinner, and drummer Brian Chase.

Zinner and O formed the band in 2000; originally, they were a folky duo called Unitard, but they went electric after being inspired by Ohio's legendary avant punk scene. After the drummer...
