Yeah Yeah Yeahs Mosquito
Vinyl LP, CD. Polydor.
6/10 Jack Customer review, 31st January 2015
I've listened to Mosquito several times now, and I can't quite put my finger on what seems to be missing here. With the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' previous three records, there was a raw, indomitable spirit to the music. It was music that was confident and sure, sometimes brash, sometimes carefully poignant, but it almost always felt inspired. Mosquito, on the other hand, feels at times like a collection of B-Sides. All of the ingredients are there, but something about the songwriting just seems bored or made-by-committee. For the most part, this album is relaxed, but when it does become up-tempo, there's something false about it, like a band going through the motions.

Karen O was in her peroxide blonde phase for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' fourth album Mosquito, an under-produced, raw sounding album that some said lacked some of the vibrancy of their earlier work. She may have been having more fun in her blonde days, but she also had less energy in the recording studio. On vinyl and double CD.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
