Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!

Posted by knowing you on

I dunno if it's called Blitz! or It's Blitz! but anyway, a new album is a new album, who cares what it's called.

The video for Zero which you'll love if you're like me and you enjoy watching Karen O doing [i]anything[/i].

So yeah, this is pretty damn great, maybe even my favourite of the year so far. I get the feeling it's gonna get all the critical praise that Show Your Bones didn't. Critics are starting to wake up to the fact that these guys are fucking fantastic, one of the best bands of the decade.

i saw them back in the day at the livid festival, touring 'fever to tell'. they were fucking good and earlier in the week karen o fell off stage and nearly broke her back. this is back in the day when she went out with angus from 'liars'

I AM OBSESSED WITH IT.
Heads Will Roll, Soft Shock, Hysteric, and Little Shadow are my current favourites.
Oh and of course Zero is a great choice for a single. I predict Heads Will Roll and Hysteric as the next 2 singles.

"Hysteric" is a highlight for me.

I don't know if I'm a biiiig fan of the whole electro-y/synth-y sound that so many bands seem to be drawn to nowadays, but I think the YYYs are a strong/talented enough band that they can pull off just about anything! I can't say I'm totally in love with this new album, but so far - having it on whilst I browse - it's enjoyable! That said, I haven't listened to it all the way through, I am only on Dull Life.

Thanks for posting up those links, Knowing You.

i can't believe i haven't dloaded this yet :(

[quote="pozhiin"]yeah. i dont want to sound like such a downer, but i really dislike the killers new sound. its too much beat using synth. like electronic sounds and shit.. i dont know . i prefer the simple rock and roll guitar riffs. sure a little bit of synth here and there wont hurt just not too much.[/quote]

OMG, I couln't agree more. The killers were one of the bands that I used to like when I was like 11, 12. Their old songs remember me the 'old times' (like 4 years ago :'). Their new album completely desapointed me. It's sad to hear that song about dancers or whatever playing on every fuckin portuguese station. They got so overated.. :?

yeah it's pretty great, the only song i don't like is Runaway which is much too long.

It's different...dancey and electronic, almost like the Killers I guess, but I like it a lot. Hopefully the whole album isn't like this though, I want some more guitars! Oh and the artwork is amazing.

Yay! they better play DC so i can finally see them!!

yeah that would be an amazing cover, and they're the kind of people that would actually do it.

Aww, I'd love to see this as the album cover!

Yeah.. right.. they are meant to be listened to.. the title is meaningless.. they should just put a number for each album and track. good thinking Knowing You..
