grahamb asked me ages ago
to give a review of the most recent Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's album.
Well, three months later...
(That seems to be my delay on internet type things this year.)ybunny
bought the album, titled It's Blitz!
, at the local music spot, OneUp
My first reaction was, 'that's the YYYs?' It seemed entirely too...pop-y?, club-y? for them. Because of that, I initially didn't like it. I had loved the stripped down, surprising tone of Fever to Tell
However, upon the second or possibly seventh time I heard it as I went in and out while ybunny
listened and gamed in the bedroom, it grew on me.
I still have to say that Fever to Tell
is more to my taste, but several songs on the new album are quite worth a listen. 'Heads Will Roll' is probably my favourite for sound but again points to a club scene even in the lyrics: 'dance, dance, dance till you're dead...'.
Is it worth £10? Yeah (yeah, yeah).
