4.0 out of 5 stars make a date with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 28 April 2003
This review is from: Fever To Tell (Audio CD)
Pounding drums, spikey guitars and Karen O's half-sung, half-yelped vocals combine to produce a debut album that will give the White Stripes 'Elephant' a run for its money come the end of year 'best of...' stakes.
'Fever To Tell' rattles by in under 40 minutes, but it feels like 10. The opening seven tracks follow the Yeahs formula we've come to expect and will get you pogoing around your bedroom (trust me on that one!).
The Yeahs are so cocky that they feel they can afford to omit EP classics 'Bang', 'Miles Away', 'Our Time', 'Machine', etc... They're right. The fact that you hardly notice these omissions is a testiment to both their talent and self belief.
Things slow down toward the end, allowing the beauty and fragility of Karen O's vocals to shine through, especially on 'Maps' and 'Modern Romance' (and the heartwarming untitled ballad that follows it).
"We're all gonna burn in hell", sings Karen O on 'Man.' If 'Fever To Tell' is playing on the stereo, set me a place next to Satan.
