The Yeah Yeah Yeahs much like fellow New Yorkers The Strokes are no strangers to straying from their early garage rock roots by incorporating keyboards and drum machines into their already aggressive sound. Album number 4 "Mosquito" continues the trend by possibly being the bands most upbeat and poppiest album to date, all this despite the turmoil that the separate members had been going through including guitarist Nick Zinners separation and Karen O's Identity crisis!!

The album begins with the lead single "Sacrilege" which shows that Karen O can still delivering a spine-tingling shriek as good as anyone and that Nick Zinner still knows the right time to make his guitar scream, the song reaches a choir backed climax as well as featuring a risqué video starring supermodel Lilly Cole. The dreamy "Subway" cleverly features Karen O singing over the sound of a train on the tracks. The title track "Mosquito" starts off sounding like Deee-Lites "Grooves is In the Heart" and shows how far the band have come since their debut EP and album as it features a thumping funky bass throughout the song.

The band still knows how to do a three minute punk rock song with a twist in the form of "Area 52" which is yes it is influenced by Aliens! It features some great drumming by Brian chase and a shrieking guitar from Zinner. Interestingly the band include some rapping on the track "Buried Alive" from Kool Keith or Dr. Octagon as he is calling himself here it's a track full of background effects. The track "Despair" wouldn't have sounded out of place on their second album "Show Your Bones" as it bears a resemblance to the song "Cheated Hearts".

Four years on since 2009′s It's Blitz sees Yeah Yeah Yeah's a decade on from their from fan favourite début, Fever to Tell, return with album number four, Mosquito.

Leaving behind the electronic sound of their third album the band return back to the sound of Fever to Tell, to the delight of the fans. The album features Gospel Choirs, Subway trains, distorted vocals and unfortunately, a rapper.

The album begins with tasty lead single "Sacrilege" that features, yes, a gospel choir. On first listen, I was like "Wait, what?" put a couple of listens later a past the original bemusement, I've learned to love this song. I think that the gospel choir adds to the song, it gives it it's "soul". Karen O herself said that without the choir, the song wouldn't be as good as it is, and I agree. It's these little things that change a song from four boring chords into something ear grabbing and great.

Second track "Subway" is a beautiful quite song similar to those found on second album Show Your Bones. With the use of a subway car running along the tracks as the "beat" to the album, the band so their soft side for the first time on the album. To a point the song, with the subway repeating over and over and the slow tempo of the song, and the general calmness to Karen's voice that can be manic at any given moment, has a hypnotic quality to it, a soothing, "let's go to sleep now" feel to it that I really like.

"Mosquito" follows with a strong chorus Karen chanting, "I'll suck your blood" and buzzing in the usual ways she has. The quartet of strong songs that begin the album is completed with "Under the Earth" to finish probably one of the best opening streaks to an album I've seen. It has some reggae vibes on it which I'm cool with and the song works really well.

Their least accomplished album in any sense. I love the YYY's but this album isn't coherent in any sense (other YYY albums have seamlessly mixed different sounds and styles within the same album whilst still being cohesive) and too many of the tracks feel like filler because they didn't have enough awesome songs to fill an album or something. There are a few songs I can separate and enjoy with a certain mood in mind and then a couple of slower songs I can enjoy separately but an equal number I really don't care for in any circumstances. It just feels too disjointed and blase.

The only point the album really came alive for me was when I listened to an alternate version with an acoustic cut of several tracks - these tracks alongside the slower of the originals made a really nice album for me. It isn't awful by any standards but was expecting and hoping for more.

What a disappointment!! I love all that YYYs have produced previously. In my opinion Mosquito as an album sounds like it has been put together with filler tracks to pad out a few good songs. I've listened to the album through over and over with the hope I was missing something and it would grow on me. 'Area 52' and 'Buried Alive' get skipped, they are that poor. What a shame from one of my favourite bands. Enjoy the back catalogue and give this one a miss.

More from yyys moving towards a more mainstream sound. Not as rocking screaming alternative as previous releases.i was looking forward to this for a long time and was a little disappointed but still like it.
