8/10 Brett 02 April 2009
Time for a new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album! Happy time for Brett if no-one else! It's called It's Blitz! and the cover is quality, I want to squish eggs and freeze time in this manner! As the lead single and lead track 'Zero' does remind me a fair bit of 'Gold Lion' from the last one in that it sounds totally underwhelming at first but kind of gets under your skin over time.. Phil's just said that it sounds like Republica and to be honest it kind of does but fuck it, it's alright by me. Most of the album does have quite a Blondie-ish new-wavey discopop sort of feel to it and while I'm tempted to write it off as soft and MOR-sounding I did that with Show Your Bones initially and it ended up being a mega-grower that I now really, really like so it wouldn't surprise me if this did the same. I do kind of miss those big, crunchy Nick Zinner riffs from the early stuff though.. They're just a totally different band these days but you can't knock them for the way they embrace change - like a far more accessible version of Liars, fittingly enough. The songwriting's still strong and Karen O retains that happy knack for a touching lyric but there's no 'Maps' on here if that's what you're reading to find out, although the lovely 'Hysteric' comes the closest in spirit the way 'Turn Into' did on the last LP. In conclusion: pretty good but should improve with further listening!
