Growth and maturity, without swaying too far from before.
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/05/2007 18:09:06
Second albums are always difficult, trying to produce something new while still staying within a tried and tested formula. Yeah Yeah Yeahs manage it exceptionally well with this album, creating a much more mature and thoughtful record while still keeping the upbeat fun of their first.
The majority of the songs are slower in pace than on 'Fever To Tell', and the lyrics are often more abstract and subtle than before. It is clear that the band have grown as musicians - every song sounds much more planned and well thought out, with more focus on structure and musical experimentation.
A number of the tracks do sound more reminiscent of older YYYs material, 'Honeybear' and 'Fancy' in particular. My personal favourite track is 'The Sweets', which ranges from quiet acoustic beauty to a full, fast, thrashing outro riff - serving as a good example of how much the band has matured and changed.
A couple of the songs feel a bit too slow and sedate, 'Warrior' and 'Cheated Hearts' for example, which I didn't find as appealing. The majority of the album is fantastic though, showing how much potential the band has and is sure to keep fans happy.
