first album had a couple of really good songs on it, the second one is more poppy, im sure they gonna blow up anytime soon, beeing the new white stripes or smitn.

raging_nelly 08.07.2006 03:39 AM

Yeah, I'd go with the first half of the first album as bein' their best work.

Style 08.07.2006 05:27 AM

I'm also a fan of their first half. Especially the master ep.

_slavo_ 08.07.2006 07:54 AM

Maps was a mindblowing song.
maybe one of top5 songs I've ever heard.

Style 08.07.2006 11:41 AM

Maps is good, but Art Star is amazing compared to it.

I second that.

songs like "date with the night" and "black tongue" remind me of a band called daisy chainsaw i used to listen to. anyone else hear this band? i didn't buy YYYs' new album because the songs i'd heard sounded a lot more on the mellow end. i like the punkier songs like said above.

thesilverrocket 08.07.2006 01:51 PM

I like their first record. I haven't heard the second one...

Anybody know who's "headlining" the show on Friday in Brooklyn? I'm driving 8 hours to get there, just want to know what speed to drive. Not that I don't like YeahYYs, but I wouldn't drive across the state to see them...

The new album is definitely more mellow. It makes sense though since Karen said the reason for the change of sound is because at 27 she's grown up and doesn't write with the same rage as she did when she was 23.

Lurker 08.08.2006 03:03 PM

First album and ep are both really good, I love art star. second album has some really good songs on it but a lot of them are pretty shit.

Also did anyone notice that in the credits for the new album it says that the songs were written by Yeah Yeah Yeahs/Chrysalis songs? That sounds like they wrote the album with the Chrysalis in house song writers

Lipslikewindows 08.08.2006 04:42 PM

As far as KO being too old to write aggressively, 27 ain't that old, and secondly, am I incorrect or does she not play an instrument? I think Zinner and Chase have much more of an effect on their songs/sound. I've seen those guys around town a few times. Played a show with Brian in one of his other bands. Very nice guy. Karen O will probably be the death of their band's potential longevity, although she was the birth of it too. She's too entrenched in persona. Bands that rely so heavily on that either break up fast, (or implode, like Hole, Nirvana, the Jamba Juicekateers), or change (Beck, the Losertones, Slaves to Hell and Its Minions' Minions).

samuel 08.08.2006 08:31 PM

Yes, yes, yes. I like all their work.
