Emerging from the fertile early 00's NYC scene (Strokes, TV on the Radio, Interpol), Yeah Yeah Yeahs were the rawest and coolest of the lot, with a truly awesome frontwoman in Karen O., who has become something of a rock and fashion icon. I'm still partial to their debut, "Fever to Tell," which straddled art cool and punk fury with aplomb. Their fourth album (and first in 4 years) is something of a disappointment and their most uneven effort. You can make it into a good EP and there are three great songs: the punk-y title track, the single "Sacrilege," which employs a choir, and the anthemic "Despair." Other songs feel more like ideas or sketches; the sci-fi themed "Area 52" is kind of a disaster, "These Paths" is a goth morass, and "Buried Alive," which brings together producer James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) and rap weirdo Kool Keith (aka Dr. Octagon, aka Black Elvis) is not as good as it should be. And I have no idea what's going on with that cover. TV on the Radio's David Sitek handles most the production. There is good stuff here, but the album as a whole is a let down. Luckily their live show still kills.

This wasn't the worst Music CD I've ever heard, it is far from being good not worth the long library wait!!!!

Ugh! I am so disappointed in this one! I love the Yeah Yeah Yeahs but this one feels experimental (and not in the kind of experiment that works!). There is even a chorus. The energy is missing or something. :(
