I've seen variable reviews about this CD and feel that the star ratings are not always doing justice to a five star CD. This is an excellent album - maybe less poppy (instantly catchy) than some of the tracks on the last one but definitely more consistent. Basically you'll have to give it a couple of listens but then the "payback" will come. The thing I really like about Yeasayer is how you suddenly start to hear what sounds like another band or song in one of theirs but before you can place the sound they have moved the track on to another place.
This is one of my top 3 of 2012 (along with Land Observations & David Byrne/St. Vincent) and I would class it as a must listen!

Put quick and simple - I love this album and having bought it within a week of it's release I am still addicted now.
Subtle and imaginative - I can honestly say over half the tracks are amongst my favourite songs, everyone to their own but well worth a few listens and you might get hooked...try 'Damaged Goods' for starters

Say what you will about Yeasayer's evolution from wishy-washy freak-beat to 80s pop pushers, but their reluctance to stand still is once again evident on the R&B/funk-leaning Fragrant World. Again the change is likely to alienate the fanbase, both long-time members and newbies alike, but whether it'll attract sufficient new blood to replace those lost remains to be seen.

The switch in direction aside, there is however one fairly large problem with Fragrant World and it is a simple one - there's no smash hit. That's not a problem for many bands, but if you're going to write a pop album it pays to follow convention if you wish to be popular. So, as there's no "Ambling Alp" to help steady this expedition into the mainstream, the task falls to next best thing - in this case "Reagon's Skeleton" - and to be fair it does its best, cruising around with an irresistible squelch beneath playful keys that together suggest at the more recent Rapture material as heard through a Scissor Sisters filter. The underlying funk in "Henrietta" isn't bad neither, latterly lurching off into a chillier early morning mist of shimmering synth and maudlin bass hooks borrowed from the recent Twin Shadow LP.

Elsewhere though it's like leafing through an Ikea catalogue of dry suggestion. Though there's a likeable vein of sleepy electro in "Fingers Never Bleed" it's all a little too studied to be svelte and a little too mute to boogie. It's a similar story for "Blue Paper" where eyes-half-mast R&B manoeuvres rub shoulders with disguised guitar licks and those drum machine snaps that everybody's been using. It's ok but where Chris Keating ought to be delirious he sounds tellingly bored.

The Hot Chip-like fidget-pop of "Longevity" feels dated.

So happy to be the first one who reviews this. I first got into Yeasayer while listening to Odd Blood, an amazing album that I would recommend to anyone.
Fragrant World marks a bit of a departure from their old ways, an evolution in an unexpected direction. But yet, it makes so much sense. Sonically, Fragrant World is rich, a richness filled with creativity and excitement and this remarkable energy inhabiting the record comes out in every song making this album, in my view, one of the most interesting musical journeys we had this year!
