I get the point that other reviews convey about the departure from the previous sound and why it's hard to accept but I found the album a positive evolution to a more mature and interesting sound. The songs are not frantic or loud but have a rich layer apon layer of electronic and vocal build that mark this album as an interesting listen. I for one am sold on this development and the maturity of sound that it brings. Be interesting to see what they do next. If you wan music to be meaningful and no just instantly gratuitous this is definitely worth a spin

Superb! Emotive, vibrant and melodic from the first track.

I honestly haven't been struck by an album in this way since first hearing PJ Harvey's Stories from the City, "Stories from the Sea".

An positive evolution from their earlier releases.

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 provided by regular collaborator TV On The Radios David A. Sitek who also produces a number of the tracks on the album.

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".

this certainly doesn't have the energy of Fever To Tell but after a few hearings its quite nice, except "nice" wasn't what I was looking for from these guys.
