Biography

To cut a short story even shorter, Yeah Yeah Yeahs formed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, when Karen O (vocals) and Nick Zinner (guitar) stumbled upon one another in a New York bar. They wrote some pretty acoustic folk songs together before the lightening bolt realization struck that they could, conceivably, be the best rock-n-roll, art-punk, disco-sleaze whatever-you-wanna-call-it band in the ...

Editorial Reviews

Limited deluxe edition of this album comes with four acoustic bonus tracks: 'Hysteric', 'Soft Shock', 'Little Shadow' and 'Skeletons'. 2009 release from the New York trio, the follow-up to 2006's Show Your Bones. It's Blitz! was recorded with Nick Launay (producer of YYY's 2007 Is Is EP) and longtime collaborator TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek. The album signals both a glance backward and a step forward for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Guitarist Nick Zinner had brought along an old keyboard he bought on eBay to work with during the writing session, not expecting it to end up on the album. However, the sounds of the vintage Arp were so right for the new songs that they found their way into the atmospheric washes of "Skeletons", the Disco wiggles of "Heads Will Roll", and New Wave melodrama of "Soft Shock". The whole record has a new feeling of space and atmosphere, a new sonic dimension, if you will.

Quite depressing, but it works well with the rest of the album.

I'd say just try to listen to the album on it's own and after listening to it a couple of times you will come to love it.

I would have to say Soft Shock is the best song on the album followed by Zero then Heads Will Roll.

I'm a recent convert to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, so I will state outright that I have no preconceptions as to what they "should" sound like. It can be difficult to deal with change in a favorite band/group, but it is essential to the band's survival that they change their style over time to keep from becoming stale.

That is what I see this newest album as, a shining star in Yeah Yeah Yeahs already remarkable journey. I have since picked up their other two major releases, their self titled EP and the EPs, "Machine" and "Is Is." Well worth it to pick them all up!

This album, "It's Blitz!," has become my go-to because of the many moods it conjures up. It speaks of building self-confidence, depression, rekindled love and loss.

It begins upbuilding with the two most synth-heavy tracks, Zero and Heads Will Roll, with bright, poignant vocals and guitar riffs with the steady drumbeat that holds it all together.

The album becomes much more sober as it hits Soft Shock and Skeletons, and appears to delve into failing relationships and the emotions associated with them. Skeletons especially makes extremely good use of simple lyrics to convey a great deal of emotion. If you liked "Maps" from Fever to Tell, you will most likely love this song.

The album fires back up for a bit with Dull life, which is quite similar to their older work, with Karen's vocals and the Nick's guitar fiercely revving up throughout the song. I've heard it is actually a song they've played numerous times in live shows, but never really recorded. Shame and Fortune has a defiant tone, similar to Dull Life, an effective and enjoyable follow up overall.

I've been a fan for a wile and I can understand how some may feel a little disappointed with this CD since it's not as hard as their old stuff. They seem to be progressing much like all good artists do, which I think is a good thing. I'd say just try to listen to the album on it's own and after listening to it a couple of times you will come to love it.

Plus, I think this version (with 4 extra acoustic tracks of Soft Shock, Skeletons, Hysteric, and Little Shadow) is well wort the extra few bucks it costs over the original 10 track CD.

Also, I'd suggest taking a look at Yeah Yeah Yeahs EP "Is Is" if you haven't already. This EP was released around their last tour and is a lot more like their older stuff, which should make a lot of the die hard fans happy.

If I said this stage in the yeah yeah yeahs metamorphosis from a great band to a truly iconoclastic artistic force reminds me of radiohead's transition from "The Bends" to "Ok Computer", how many of you would say I'm stating a tautology? Another appropriate analogy with Ok Computer is that like any truly work of genius, this album requires several listenings before you "get it".

Consider how many times you needed to read "Moby Dick" or "Ulysses" before you got it. How many times do you listen to "Ok Computer" or "Exile on Main Street" before it was clear that these were light years ahead of anything else recorded? How many times did you stare at Godel's proof before it's beauty jumped out at you? Same with "It's Blitz!!" The sad part is that many yyy fans will trash this before they realize how great it truly is.

If you've been stalking this album before it came out, you kinda knew what to expect. On their website the YYYs said that it was unlike ANYTHING they've done before. Frightening but exciting news. Then Zero came out and I peed my pants (nt rly). Yes it's synthy (a word I'll use a lot to describe the songs) and dancey but I figured my YYYs would show em how it's done, so I kept my faith. The day I opened the album, I scanned the song titles and I was a little frightened. The titles sounded awesome, but the instruments listed were cello, piano, trumpet, and saxophones. Automatically I thought "WHITE STRIPES GET THEE BEHIND ME!!!".
Now for the review :)
Zero: Probably the best choice for single because it's mid tempo and the song has a of a little bit of something from each song in it. 5/5

Heads Will Roll: From the moment you hear Karen yell "Off with your head!" like she's the friggin Queen of Hearts, she's gotcha. About the same tempo as Zero but with a heavier, almost disco beat. Another dance track. This is what Show your bones would sound like if it joined us in '09. It's hard, but contained.

Soft shock: Slow, but not too slow. Rhythm reminds me of Way Out. As Karen softly sings, I kind of think of Brian's work as the heartbeat of the song. 5/5

Skeletons: starts of with one simple synth fairy + sincerely singing Karen, which then evolves into Karen plus space synths that sound like when you set your keyboard on Galaxy setting. The last minute-ish of the song are pretty much just drums and space synths. Pretty, but unless I plan on listening to the album as a whole, or feeling contemplative, not one I see myself going to.
