5.0 out of 5 stars Great March 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love the song MACHINE. It's really gritty, and Karen O's voice is a one-in-a-million voice, I really love it. For me the song MACHINE is worth the price of the EP. The other two songs are good and worthwhile, but it's MACHINE I love. GRAVEYARD is good sloppy rock, but a bit more generic. PIN is sort of a mood piece of sound with no proper structure, but enjoyable. I've got tickets to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs next month in L.A. and I can't wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
First there was "Anarchy in The UK," then there was "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and now there is "Machine." Many of today's bands have questioned the album format. Most of it is downloaded on the internet anyway. People like me who are into The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, know that any release is just a signpost on the road of a fabulous legend. Karen O is the most famous person in music right now. She can almost compete with W. I. T. with magazine cover to music release ratio. Who cares? This seven minute sonic assault is a fun ride. Most people thought that they would explode after one EP, but the song "Machine" proves that this Williamsburg hype and pot smoke must not be taken lightly. I don't just like this music because I can sit in the L Cafe with Nick Zinner and be a snob. "Graveyard" is a truly great rock song too. I am a believer. Take a deep breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LIKE EM!! THIS BANDS GOT SPUNK! GO KAREN O!!! Dec 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'd like to appologize for knocking the group The Kills on my last review I wrote about the Yeah,Yeah,Yeahs,and their Yeah,Yeah,Yeah EP,so just consider that a type-O,or something.Because their actually a really good band.As a matter of fact,if you love this band,you should also really like The Kills.I don't appologize however,for knocking the other band's.In my opinion they're as generic,and lame as the day is long.Now this band on the other hand is totally amazing,just because of the fact you can't really pigeon hole them as any particular sound.Unlike the White Stripes that sound like the 80's,and that Oingo Boingo,Duran Duran,stuff that I personally can't stand!Or Green Day,and the Clash sounding nightmare,in which has many kiddie follower's,band wise,and otherwise.Yet with the Yeah,Yeah,Yeahs,you can just take them for what you hear them as.If you like Punk Rock,there's a bit of that sound in there.Although I thank my lucky star's a small amount,because if it sounded any more punk I would of had to break this album.Only because I hate Punk Rock!Now that's just my personal opinion,and I'm entitled that,but my point is,this band is kind of like a swiss army knife,which means you can take it for whatever sound you want,and say to yourself,yep,that's why I like this band.Personally I can't see how someone could dislike this band.They've got a great singer,to say the least,a super creative song structure,spunk,energy,attitude without being to harsh,but tough enough to not be considered bubble gum rock.
Now to me that is an amazing style,that's totally hard to maintain,and is also totally mixed.I personally like them for their kind of loungy yet hyper sound.And coupled also with Karens energetic,carefree vocal stylings.It's almost as if she could sing no wrong.

I can't say I LOVE the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, but they're better than anything I've heard in a long time. I loved Karen O's voice: part sarcastic Kathleen Hanna shriek and part Mark Arm raw sexuality. Machine has a sort of choppy melody that I really liked. I have to agree with other reviewers that Graveyard was somewhat sloppy and generic, but I have a feeling that had to do with lousy production. Pin was like painfully bad No Wave. I'll forgive that those songs missed their mark, because I like their spirit (god, I sound like an old lady). Anyway, ciao.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed glimpse of the future Feb. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
Much buzz has surrounded the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and their debut EP which piqued my interest in the band. After hearing "Machine" on the radio, I was interested enough to lay down some cash for one of their EPs. I ended up with the Machine EP simply because they wanted $15 bucks for the self-titled EP which really didn't make a difference; I wanted to hear "Machine" again. Once I got this cd out of the wrapper and eagerly popped it in my cd player, I sat down ready to enjoy what I hoped would be a great cd.
The first track, Machine, was as good the second time around with surf-inspired verses speeding towards the melt-down chorus, only to build back up into another verse. Karen O's voice on this track swells with a strong sexual undertones. The second track, however, was a huge let down. Sounding more like a mish-mash of distortion and an attempt at melody then an indie rock gem, it was a painful couple of minutes that just seemed to drag. At this point I had laid all my hope into the last song..and my hope was lost. A quiet, spacey sounding song..it sounded more like the band was asleep at their instruments than anything else. The first track is absolutely amazing, in my opinion, but the other two aren't nearly as good and are(luckily) easily forgotten. I haven't heard the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' first EP so I have no comparison but I can only hope that their full-length won't be as bad as more than half of this release.
