Top Customer Reviews
'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
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!

"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.
