Style above anything,

This review is from: Fever To Tell (Audio CD)
If you have ever seen Karen O you will by now be aware that whilst not being the most stunning of creatures, you cannot help but be interested in every move she makes. And it is very much the same for the New York trio's debut LP, "Fever to Tel". Whilst "Is This It" or even "Highly Evolved" both gained much respect for being albums soaked in tuneful melodies and exciting vocals, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have opted to go for the simply exciting. Irritatingly this often leads to a mis mash of tunes such as Tick and the quite bizarre No No No. But anybody willing to see past its faults will see an album with some incredible ability. Yes vocalist Karen 0 can be somewhat grating and no there is no obvious single past the awesome Date With the Night, but this is an album that is different. Not quite the grab and shake you delight of "Elephant", but if you like style, there is nothing better. If you want to break yourself in slowly, head towards the first Yeah Yeah Yeahs self-titled EP, (commonly referred to as the "Master EP".
