Yeah Yeah Yeahs one of the most talked about bands of 2003, style gurus and general scensters follow up their debut album Fever to Tell with the stellar "Show Your Bones" on March 27th. Making the leap from indie darlings to musical powerhouse, the band have fulfilled all the potential of their debut and then some. Described by Q Magazine as an album that "explodes into colour" in their 4 star review, "Show Your Bones" brims with style and invention, from the first single "Gold Lion" with its classic YYYs guitar to "Warrior", more ballad than bedlam.
The album is released on CD with UK bonus track and on heavyweight vinyl.
Karen O is tough and tender. "Men like me" she sings "'cause I'm a warrior". She's right, and the track "Warrior" where she shows her vulnerability, is moving and emotional. It's the best song on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs patchy third cd.
They've always been more intelligent, had more depth and more ideas than The Strokes or The White Stripes. But 'Show Your Bones' starts badly with three plodding, undistinguished tracks. Things pick up with the sexy strut of "Phenomena" which sounds like Led Zeppelin high on oestrogen. Other highlights include the wild rollicking two step of "Mysteries" and the gorgeous distorted guitar pop of "Cheated Hearts", while "Dudley" is the Cocteau Twins gone country and western.
Show Your Bones is not a disaster but it's not a complete triumph either. Has their bright star burnt out? Their next move will be critical. --Nick Reynolds

The first half is, admittedly, better than the second, containing all the absolutely great songs (I'd list them, but I may as well just say, all the first 7. And Honeybear is amazing), but the second is very good too. It may even jsut that I just haven't listened to the second half enough. Since I got this it's been on pretty regularly rotation, though i've listened to the first half more because it absolutely blew me away. Maybe once I've listened to the second as much I'll feel the same about the whole thing.
Show Your Bones rocks. It's musically great, vocally inspiring, the guitar-work is more careful, studied, and brilliant. Definitely buy it.
so with the current music climate i am findinf my self on a little bit of driftwood bobbing about with nothing to latch onto.
then all of a sudden im watching mtv 2 and "Turn into" comes on -enien minuten bitte - i thought - this sounds like some good old early 90's alt rock.... but no alast its the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! a band i had heard of but just presumed they were some radio 1 hyped up crap that every one likes coz its "cool"...
well what a foolish boy i have been - at last something to get excited about - this is a fantastic bit of rock -
its been a long long time since i heard some music that sent a shiver down my spine or got me headbanging in the car. i saw them live at the leeds fest and its so refreshingto see a band that revolve their music around the love for the sound of a crashing guitar.
rock music is only just alive again with the Yeah Yeah yeahs holding the elaboratly decorated flag (with the metric supproting it)
Why is this relevant? Because The YYYs second full-length album, "Show Your Bones", is a much more mature and structured effort. O's vocals are stripped back, Chase's drumming is kept in check, and Zinner's guitar-playing sticks to the script. So the band's gone and grown up - time to consign them to the footnotes of early 21st century music? Far from it! This is a sophomore album that will give the band much wider appeal, but should keep many earlier fans tuned into what they have to offer.
You could argue that "Maps" provides the bridge between the two albums. However, from the acoustic and gently sung opening bars of "Gold Lion", listeners know that they are in for something new here. The title of the song is a reference to the Gold Prize for Best Use of Music at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival, which an Adidas television commercial featuring "Hello Tomorrow," written by Show Your Bones co-producer Squeak E. Clean, with vocals by O, won in 2005. Indeed, the opening lines of this song perhaps suggest some anguish at the loss of indie credibility that such mainstream success may bring:
Gold lion's gonna tell me where the light is, \
Gold lion's gonna tell me where the light is, \
Take our hands out of control, \
