Product Description

Product Description

UK edition of the New York art punk's eagerly anticipated 2003 full length debut album includes two bonus tracks, 'Yeah! New York' & 'Date With The Night' (Video). Dress Up/Polydor.


Well before the release of this solid but slender debut, the Brooklyn-based Yeah Yeah Yeahs were the subject of so much international press hype that the White Stripes were probably taking quick, nervous peeks over their shoulders. But while Fever to Tell captures a lot of what’s good about the trio--mostly the caterwauling energy of their club shows--it also exposes the band’s limitations. Singer Karen O is the undeniable star here, contorting her voice from a primal P.J. Harvey growl to the pre-orgasmic purr of Chrissie Hynde. Nick Zinner chops, slashes, and torpedoes his guitar around, across, and straight at O’s voice, while drummer Brian Chase delivers a suitably raw trash-can thump. There are a lot of cool sounds on this 11-song, 37-minuute disc, and enough metallic-KO attitude to make a bare-chested grandpa like Iggy Pop proud. What’s missing is a more varied set of fully fleshed-out songs, the kind it took the White Stripes four albums to write. Hype too early in a career can be terrible burden--ask Liz Phair or, soon enough, the Vines. Better to enjoy Fever to Tell for what it is--an uninhibited blast of garage-rock fury--without swallowing extravagant claims for a potentially great band still under construction. --Keith Moerer

1. Rich -liked the song right away, awesome beat to it,
Im not really rich, so i couldnt relate, but lol, its a feel
good song, and good song to start the cd out with
2. Date With the Night- this is one of my favorites,
I didnt like it at first, but it really grows on you, and
has a cool beat to it.
3. Man- shorter song, the lyrics are kick ass
4. Tick- One of my favorites on here, This song has a cool
ending to it, its a very catchy song
5. Black Tongue- the lyrics are a bit odd, but the song is really cool
6. Pin- songs pretty short too, but the beat is awesome
7. Cold Light- didnt like it at first, but it grows on you and its one of my favorites on here
8. No No No - I like the way her voice sounds in this song, the chorus is really cool
9. Maps- the song they released, awesome as always
10. Y Control- another one of my favorites on here, this song is really fun to sing along to, the beat is great
11. Modern Romace- a slower, more mellow song, her voice is beautiful, and the lyrics are awesome
I suggest you buy this album, if your looking for a new sound, this band has so much talent and everything to offer. I didnt like the cd the first time i heard it, but i kept skiping back to songs and i love all the songs on here now. Theres just something about this band that sends a really good vibe, and just the way you feel when you sing these songs, i dont know how to explain it, but Maps is stand out from the others on here, so if thats the only songs you've heard of them, check out some other songs of theirs too & see if you like those. Anyway, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are awesome, this is my favorite cd at the moment.

"Rich" (4/5): A rockin opener.
"Date With The Night" (4/5): Karen O's screeches are crazy, turn this one up.
"Man" (4/5): The guitar is a driving force is this song.
"Tick" (5/5): One of my favorite songs on the cd, this is a great track.
"Black Tongue" (4/5): How could you dislike a song with lyrics like this one lol.
"Pin" (4/5): There aren't many real words in this song, but who needs them with a riff like the one in this tune.
"Cold Light" (3/5): This isn't a horrible song, just not great.
"No No No" (4/5): Another personal favorite on the cd.
"Maps" (5/5): Karen's voice is beautiful here. Great song and my favorite on the cd.
"Y Control" (5/5): Two great songs in a row. This one is awesome.
"Modern Romance" (4/5): A good closing track.
The long-anticipated major label debut from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be very satisfying for the YYY fan. Ever present rock star Karen O leads her other two bandmates in a crazy party sure to mess up a few heads. Contrary to most albums, this one actually starts to get great at the end. Not a bad release at all. Highlights include "Maps" "Tick" and "Y Control."
Rating: Four stars.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a NYC art-punk trio, and are probably the most recent band to be hyped by the trend-hungry press in the so-called "garage rock revolution," which also contains familiar bands such as the Strokes and the White Stripes. In terms of raw energy, the YYYs certainy exemplify the garage punk sound on their debut album. It's 37 minutes of pure, unadulterated energy, wild vocals, and abrasive artsiness.Vocalist Karen O, guitarist Nick Zinner and drummer Brian Chase are explosive together; nothing better, nothing worse. Songs like "Rich," "Date w/ the Night," and "Black Tongue" show punk rock's fury in its amalgam of simple yet ear-shattering music and Karen O's frenzied vocals. Those songs are loud enough, but other songs like "Tick" and "Pin" are only more manic. However, the YYY's have not created a soind all of their own, for in some parts they rehash what proto-punk icons the New York Dolls and the Stooges (or some of Iggy Pop's solo work) have already done, as well as the attitude of "riot-grrl"bands like Bikini Kill and Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon. Unfortunately, Karen O also is sometimes labelled as rock's leading woman. True, she is not Avril Lavigne (thankfully), but she also has quite a ways to go before she reaches the level of Patti Smith, or even Mia Zapata. Despite the lack of total originality, the YYY's express their more admirable artistic side on the final 3 songs, starting with the minor hit "Maps." Karen O's vocals are softer and more emotional, expressing a vulnerable side to her fiery presence, and even more introspective lyrics ("Wait, they don't love you like I love you"), and the final song "Modern Romance" is a slow art-punk dirge.Read more ›

I was surprised to hear such an amazing song playing on MTV. When I first heard Maps I was addicted and had to get this album. Alot of reviewers have said that the single gives a false insight to the rest of the album which is mostly gritty garage rock but this is a true marvel. Althought, it lacks that finishing touch that the White Stripes have today but still this is a solid collection of real punk rock. Karen O's voice is made for punk rock as she growls, purrs, screeches, and softly pours her heart out into every song. The drummer, Brian Chase, creates thumps and trash can like sounds forming into a great backround beat while Nick Zinner adds the zest with his guitar playing, contributing to Karen O's amazing vocals. I do agree with some people that the lyrics do lack substance but most songs are decently written in a punk sort of manner.
Highlights on this album are "No,No,No", "Maps", "Y Control", and "Modern Romance" which all happen to be the last set of songs on the album. Others include "Date with the Night" where she uses her fierce vocals to purr and scream 'Chow' as the unlikely chorus of the song. Another song that is a solid attempt is "Tick" where Karen O opens up her vocals into small 'Ticks' which nearly runs her out of breath a couple of times. "Modern Romance" is an excellent A+ song with Nick and Brian taking a soft turn in their playing and lowering it down to a great beat with Karen desperatly singing about the troubles of a romance. In my opinion "Maps" is the most full out song on the album featuring Karen O's lush vocals accompained by ruff guitar playing by Nick and garage sounding drum thumps.
Overall this is a very solid attempt at an album and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs succeed with great effort.
