iTunes Review

In 2013, few rock 'n' roll bands sound both in tune with rock tradition and intent on smashing through its boundaries, but Yeah Yeah Yeahs are one of them. Singer Karen O has proven to be the frontwoman everyone thought she could be after the group debuted 10 years ago. And Mosquito, Yeah Yeah Yeahs' fourth album, answers any questions of how "for real" this clanging trio of kids (now adults) actually is. The opener "Sacrilege" is key, unleashing all the group's firepower in one dose. But rather than follow that with another epic blowout, Yeah Yeah Yeahs opt for atmosphere on the lengthy and beautiful "Subway." With production chores handled by TV on the Radio's David Andrew Sitek and longtime co-conspirator Nick Launay (fresh off producing Nick Cave), Mosquito never forgets the importance of a soul-piercing sound. The dance grooves don't change the YYYs but add to their arsenal of ways of getting under your skin. The title track moves with urgency. "Under the Earth" turns modern tribal. "Despair" is a ballad for Karen O to slice apart. The deluxe edition adds four tracks of acoustic demos and radio performances.

Welcome Back YYYs

It looks as though the band has come full circle and has tapped into its raw unapologetic roots to bring back a sound reminiscent of early recordings with a splash of 2013... Can't wait for the tour

Awesome album that will probably go unnoticed.

Highlights include; "Sacrilege", "Under the Earth", "Despair" (which could be one of their best songs ever), "Mosquito", "Subway".

First off Don't listen to over-critical fans who don't appreciate the incredible musicality of this album. I feel like the band takes a sip of multiple genres and spits it out in the air, and rock out under the falling droplets. Just cause Karen O isn't screaming a hole into the microphone, doesn't mean the band lost their edge. actually for the majority of this album they are on the edge of a cliff high above most artists out now. No the album isn't better than their other albums but it sure isn't worse. Best description of this album is "soul rock", cause not a lot of artists have it nowadays.
No bad tracks on this album, though "Buried Alive" doesn't reach the greatness it strives for. Definitely think "Despair" is on a high pedestal that IMO will become a perfect YYY song, reminds me of "Dudley" from Show your Bones, there's a sweetness and honesty that only a mature band can produce. "Under the Earth" is just a cool song, "Sacrilege".... Is a perfect opening for the album. Great production on this album; drums, bass, guitar, vocals, lyrics. Just listen to it.


I can't wait for the rest of the album to be released. If you get a chance to see them live - they are amazing.

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. O met Chase at Ohio's Oberlin College and met Zinner through friends after she transferred to NYU. 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...
