Format: Audio CD
Upon hearing 'Gold Lion', I wondered if it was the new one by Neko Case, whether Laura Veirs had finally rawked out, or whether the New Pornographers had a new one. Shockingly it turned out to be those ubercool Yeah Yeah Yeahs - a band I found hard to like in the past. Karen O and co like many a recent band - Josef Ferdinand, The Storks, Editors, Bloc Party, Radiohead - just seem far too studied. The trauma of having excellent taste in music and influences so obvious you haven't transcended them...Those Yeah Yeah Yeahs seemed unbad, but there was a feeling Bikini Kill/Le Tigre, Lydia Lunch, The Slits, The Raincoats, Siouxsie Sioux, PJ Harvey, Melt Banana and tons of others had previously charted these territories. As the excellent documentary 'Kill Your Idols' demonstrated, there was something severely pseud 'bout those Yeah Yeah Yeahs...
'Gold Lion' is a very good pop-song, a kinda bluesy feel and some call/response anthemic qualities - its feeling is somewhere between Neko Case and the New Pornographers. It's a fine single, though I wonder if it can last those multiple plays, or whether I may as well just listen to 'Mass Romantic' one more time instead? Yeah Yeah Yeah in the meantime

Sorry, I just don't get it. Ramshackle indie instrumentation straight out of 1986. Screechy unmelodic vocals only a rutting walrus could love, a drum beat Meg White would reject out of hand as too pedestrian. And this is supposed to be good, how?

Now, if it had been some kind of April Fools joke that got out of hand, then that would be worth admiring. Oh, and be warned, the other tracks are even worse. Nurse!

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars... Lead-off single from the new album 1 April 2006
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs return after an almost 3 year absence following the "Fever to Tell" breakthrough album with a new album ("Show Your Bones") and this preceding single from it.

"Gold Lion" (4 tracks, 14 min.) brings the opener track from the album. The sound on "Gold Lion" is less raw and garage-oriented than the "Fever to Tell" sound, but it is undeniably catchy and Karen O.'s vocals are in great shape. "Let Me Know" is a demo of a new song that did not make the final tracklist of "Show Your Bones". It is very accoustic, and nice, but an even further moving away from the garage sound that put the YYYs on the map.

The last 2 tracks are remixes of the "Gold Lion" song, and not much to write home about. I'm not for remixes, and these are quite mechanical and industrial-sounding, definitely not my cup of thee. But the original "Gold Lion" song is quite good, and I'll be interested to see how the entire album sounds like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gold Lion 27 Mar. 2006
By pacifikix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First single off the new album "Show Your Bones" is amazing. Guitars and vocals are a bit more produced than "Fever to Tell," but they still maintain that edgy YYY sound. The two remixes by Diplo and Nick Zinner make this a great purchase for any fan as well!

2.0 out of 5 stars New Direction for Yeah Yeah Yeahs 3 Mar. 2006
By matthewslaughter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Based on "Gold Lion" and the demo for "Let Me Know," the YYYs are moving their sound in an acoustic direction. As a fan of their Neo-No Wave Sound, I'm not really fond of either of these tracks, though they are, admittedly, catchy. Karen O's voice is beautiful as usual, but it sounds much more restrained than on "Fever to Tell," "Yeah Yeah Yeahs" or "Machine." Admittedly, their earlier sound is somewhat limiting, so it is nice to see them doing something different ... I just wish was a BETTER different. (Oh yeah, as with other YYY singles, this one includes two useless remixes.)
