With Show Your Bones, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs follow up to the heralded Fever to Tell Karen O economizes on the screaming that so marked the trio’s debut EP. And oh how she exceeds her oft-noted influences (PJ Harvey and Chrissie Hynde, for two): Whether she’s hanging back with a staggered beat on "Phenomena," or riding on the kick-drum-pounded opening to "Honeybear," she’s always ready to disappear in a burst of Nick Zinner’s guitars and Brian Chase’s drums. The YYYs thrill precisely because of their keen mix, Karen O spiking the upper ranges (dig the caterwaul in "Mysteries") with a sharply cut vocal line or a simple, full-bodied singsong delivery while the guitars spin thick storms of sound before retreating to atmospherics (try the transition from the quick throttle of "Cheated Hearts" into the Cure-ish "Dudley," for one example). And marvel at how well radio would be served by blasting the acoustic, pleading vibe of "Warrior."

This is one of the best albums from recent years (not to mention the following and outstanding IsIs EP). And they also shine on their new one, although it does sound so much better live where they rock it out. These guys master the art of songwriting and can actually jump form one song form to another without too much effort. Art rock or something like that at its best. And still with a breathtaking attitude when performing live, especially in smaller venues. Proved to own the stage at Belfort Eurockéennes last year, check out their amazing Sealings rendition. Thanks a lot for this!
