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 whats good about the trio--mostly the caterwauling energy of their club shows--it also exposes the bands 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 Os 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. Whats 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

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

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.
"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.
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.
