Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever To Tell (Summer Music Listening Series)

I liked It's Blitz! a whole lot, and even though I knew beforehand that their first album sounds markedly different from that one, I dove in and expected to like what I heard. Well, expectations were a bit unfulfilled at first, haha - it wasn't until the second listen that I really started appreciating it. I've found that the first two tracks don't really pull me in (but maybe they'll grow on me, too?), but starting with Man and going forward, it's all great stuff. Between Karen O and the guitars (something to note about em: like The White Stripes, they bring the low end where bass guitars usually are), it's often a noisy and crazy affair, with Man, Black Tongue, and Cold Light being especially high marks of that.

Adding onto that goodness, the four songs at the end of the album where the insanity is toned down - Maps, Y Control, the remarkably pretty and melancholy Modern Romance, and the hidden track Poor Song, also hold up excellently.

Overall, I prefer It's Blitz! to Fever To Tell, but this one is still a damn fine album.

This review could probably use slightly more detail. So I might update it with a more fleshed-out description at a later time. - 08/19/10

    I really like Maps and Y Control of this album too. I'm going to be bringing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs album 'Show your Bones' since I got that and I really like it. I think it's my favorite one actually because I have listened to that one more then the others. The songs are pretty darn catchy.
