Biography

To cut a short story even shorter, Yeah Yeah Yeahs formed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, when Karen O (vocals) and Nick Zinner (guitar) stumbled upon one another in a New York bar. They wrote some pretty acoustic folk songs together before the lightening bolt realization struck that they could, conceivably, be the best rock-n-roll, art-punk, disco-sleaze whatever-you-wanna-call-it band in the ...

Anyone expecting, or wanting, a carbon copy of Fever to Tell is going to be a little disappointed in this album. Show Your Bones is the second album from a group that have really grown-up since their debut, and produced a far stronger, more enduring record because of it. This isn't selling out, as I've read somewhere, this is musical development. There's an intelligent restraint to this second effort, which shows O and the gang realise they can have just as much effect, and even more, if they tone some things down and allow themselves a bit more musical range. Fever to Tell was only really a single mode of song-writing, but Show Your Bones is a much broader affair. And because it's a bit more restrained, it actually seems angrier in parts. So far, it's maybe my second-favourite album of the year (Dresden Dolls Yes, Virginia... takes first place).

The first half is, admittedly, better than the second, containing all the absolutely great songs (I'd list them, but I may as well just say, all the first 7. And Honeybear is amazing), but the second is very good too. It may even jsut that I just haven't listened to the second half enough. Since I got this it's been on pretty regularly rotation, though i've listened to the first half more because it absolutely blew me away. Maybe once I've listened to the second as much I'll feel the same about the whole thing.

Show Your Bones rocks. It's musically great, vocally inspiring, the guitar-work is more careful, studied, and brilliant. Definitely buy it.

I love love love this album, but if you are looking for a follow up to Fever to Tell, then look elsewhere. This album is produced magnificantly (crystal clear) which is quite differnt then their previous album. Drums are insanely strong and, as always, Karen O kicks it with intense vocals. Overall, a great album, jsut not as wild and off the wall as Fever to Tell. I don't even think I hear Karen O scream once!

An amazing album, the finest released this year. Generally more polished than "Fever to tell", it's gorgeous rock, far superior to most of the dross on the radio these days. Beautiful, catchy, energetic, loud rock. Play loud.

"Fever to Tell" was a raw, rowdy, and rambunctious album that demanded your attention. It was an album of manical drumming, booming reverb, and lead vocals that shrieked and shrilled. Ironically, although not irrelevant to this review, its most accessible song "Maps" would prove to be the one that guided the album into the charted waters of popular acclaim.

Why is this relevant? Because The YYYs second full-length album, "Show Your Bones", is a much more mature and structured effort. O's vocals are stripped back, Chase's drumming is kept in check, and Zinner's guitar-playing sticks to the script. So the band's gone and grown up - time to consign them to the footnotes of early 21st century music? Far from it! This is a sophomore album that will give the band much wider appeal, but should keep many earlier fans tuned into what they have to offer.

You could argue that "Maps" provides the bridge between the two albums. However, from the acoustic and gently sung opening bars of "Gold Lion", listeners know that they are in for something new here. The title of the song is a reference to the Gold Prize for Best Use of Music at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival, which an Adidas television commercial featuring "Hello Tomorrow," written by Show Your Bones co-producer Squeak E. Clean, with vocals by O, won in 2005. Indeed, the opening lines of this song perhaps suggest some anguish at the loss of indie credibility that such mainstream success may bring:

Gold lion's gonna tell me where the light is, \
Gold lion's gonna tell me where the light is, \
Take our hands out of control, \
Take our hands out of control.

Format: Audio CD
It takes a very special debut to create a platform for an album this bold. Then again it takes a very special band to make a debut as bold as Fever to Tell. And as 21st century bands go, you don't get bands much more special than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Energy spills from Karen O's lipstick smudged mouth, as does it through Nick Zinner's senstaional guitar playing. And with these 2 gigantic charecters, the band's records spew with sexual energy and raw angst and emotion.

The lead single from Show Your Bones, Gold Lion, represents the albums bigger, more anthemic sound, while at the same time not revealing the record to anywhere near it's dizzying peaks. It's sing-along "Ooh ooh" chorus makes one of the highlights of this year's festivals. Phenomena is just as sexy but even bigger and bolder and it's chorus holds similar sing-along potential. Mysteries' jerky, bouncy pop/punk is paralell to Pin from the first album and the dirty punk of Fancy also to nods Fever to Tell.

But the more affecting moments on here are the less screaming, punk moments. They are in the songs that progress furthest from Fever to Tell. Towards the end of their debut, the songs began to thaw away the ice-cool punk edge and reveal Karen O as beautifully vulnerable, Maps in particular provides a gateway to some of the bigger moments on this album. Cheated Hearts could well have been lifted from Fever..., it's huge echoing sound mirrors songs like Maps and Y Control. The Sweets and Warrior are similarly powerful, but move away from the towering skyline and bright lights of New York city, and instead towards the open road and the warm light of the campfire. However the best song on here by miles, and arguably the best YYYs moment yet is the epic Turn Into.
