I can't really understand what they wanted to achieve with the new CD.
mellow shit is not what fits with Karen's voice

So... "It's Blitz!" is streaming on some sites. I've listened to it a couple times, and it's alright. I like most of the melodies, I just wish Nick would have utilized the guitar instead of those damn synths. But supposedly, they're releasing acoustic versions of many of the songs, so that's good for me.

They're dreadful.

They're kinda Sonic Youth after being stripped of all good qualities. NY hipster at its worst.

She has an horrendous voice as well.

I think their first album is one of the best and fun albums for ages when it came out. really love it and the 3 concerts I saw at that period where just excellent.
2nd album: yes I agree with everybody!
and even the concert from that tour was a let down
I still got a crush on karen o

exactly. she can sing really beautiful like in the adidas advertising, but the second album is just too edgeless

first one Fever to Tell - is good in half.
I really enjoy second one Show Yr Bones.
And third one It's a Blitz! is more poppy melodies, some synths, guitar like on the other two, and it has only 3 really good songs.

Their first album is one of my favourites of the last decade. Date With The Night, Y Control, Maps, Modern Romance... it's got so many great songs on. It's the soundtrack to the idea of a night-out in downtown New York that I have in my head, the excitement of the subway, walking down the darks streets, past the crackling neon, on the way to a grimey club, then the comedown of sitting in an empty cafe at 3am.

The second album is more poppy, and I haven't listened to it in ages, but I think they achieved what they wanted to do: reign-in the NY hipster-image, and make an album of good songs with strong melodies. I think it's a very likeable album, which is a difficult thing to describe or quantify, but there you go.

I like what I've heard of the new stuff. I don't understand why they couldn't have done most of those synth melodies with an effects-laden guitar though, like the sound they use on Y-Control. It doesn't bother me listening to it at home but I wonder how it will fit-in with the other songs when performed live.

I don't understand why people think their generic. Each album sounds different, and even their first one, which had them lumped together by NME with all the other 'The-' bands, is distinct: more distorted and louder yet more romantic and varied than The Strokes or whatever. I can't expect all die-hard Merzbow fans to like them, but it's exactly my kind of music anyway.

^ I completely agree.

I think "It's Blitz!" would have sounded 10x better if they used guitars instead of synths. Also, mainstream doesn't equate with generic. Sure, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are pretty popular, but they definitely experiment with song structures and melodies.

Fever To Tell is one of my favorite albums of all times. Y Control, Maps, No No No, and Modern Romance are some phenomenal songs.

I might be one of the few people who really enjoyed Show Yr Bones. I thought as far as making a pop album was concerned, it was fantastic.

It's pretty shallow kinda hip stuff, but theres a special element there somewhere I reckon.

I agree
I even think Show Your Bones was better than Fever To Tell. The Sweets and Fancy are probably my two favorite YYYs songs
