I got a feeling a lot of people will hate it though
i'll be straight on it when i get home...will still require a hard copy though, before i get any abuse :D
then...what kind of direction?
they sound like goldfrapp, actually, but the are a lot of floor fillers here, its very poppy album with some nice brooding melodic numbers in between. Not enough screaming though and it lacks a little edge but its better the Show Your Bones.
suprisingly so, i was shocked to hear so much going on in a yeah yeah yeahs song
...nothing here which causes the hairs on the back of my neck to stand up. I've heard a lot of people raving about the second half of the album but 'Soft Shock' and 'Skeleton' are easily the most interesting tracks for me. It's a shame they didn't just choose the keep the whole album electronic in this regard as these songs are genuinely distinct from the 'big rock' sound which is Show Your Bones. It's not a bad album but I'm not sure it has much in that will keep me coming back. But then again, I find this to be true about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' material as a whole.
their cover of sheena is a punk rocker on the war child album.
and it sounds like they're going Blondie's route to stardom. The single is fair only I worry Karen O ain't no Debbie Harry when it comes to disco.
I like that they're changing their sound on every album, too.
I still think it should be a little better considering how long it took for them to release it, though.
I was a bit worried by the glossiness and electro-punk sound of the first two tracks. After Is Is, I was expecting something much more gritty, and I still think that's what they're best at, but coming towards the end of the second listen, I am enjoying this.
