So, once you listen to this throughly, & theres no doubt youll enjoy it, than you should pick up 'fever to tell' there most recent album, yeha youll love it, enjoy.
Karen O's voice is fantastic.She varies from a cute kitten purr to a demented shriek often in the space of one song, and her voice is what make the band special.
"Bang" is the perfect opener to the album with its wonderfull jerky guitar riff, and sex filled lyrics setting the tone for the next 14 minutes.
"Mystery Girl" proves the band capable of a steady rock'n roll number,and "Art Star", my favourite, contains all the elements which make the Yeah Yeah Yeahs such a great band;the inspired guitar riffs,versitial vocals, and punk sensibility.
Not to mention the pop catchiness in all those "doos".
As a guitarist, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have a lot of appeal for me because of Nick Zinner's exellent guitar work. Just listen to the riff in "Miles Away" and the way his guitar parts sometimes echoe the lyrics.
"Our time" is the closest thing to a slow song on the EP,and showcases the Yeah Yeah Yeahs potential for writing emotive and sincere songs like "maps" on "Fever to Tell".
I would recommend that anyone who enjoyed "Fever to Tell" buy this record as it condences the Yeah Yeah Yeahs sound into 5 slices of brilliance.A fine introduction or definition of the band.
And I'm not talking musical talent,as far as the guitars,and drums are concerned,if that was the case none of the these bands would have,really any talent.I'd just listen to the stuff I've been listening to,and playing,practically all my life,and that would be,Power Metal.(You see I've been playing guitar quite excellently for 10 year's now,and I'm 23 today)!and I'd of never found this diamond in the rough if I didn't reavaluate what it really takes to be a good sounding band.Karen O's amazing,and unique,totally uncopied vocals, make this band.Read more ›
