1 review about It's Blitz!

The YYY's best album and a highlight of 2009.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a band that I've always liked, but I became much more impressed with them after hearing It's Blitz! Rather than continue on their alternative rock path, they opted to take a different route. Their origins can still be heard in the songs, but the album is filled with keyboards, electronics, and synthesized strings. It's not a drastic change; for some reason it seems like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were meant to make this album. Many of the songs carry a danceable rhythm, especially "Heads Will Roll" with its disco meets alternative pop beat. There are also softer songs that really bring Karen O into the spotlight. Karen O has always had a beautiful singing voice, but much of the band's earlier work focused on her raw energy and sexually charged singing. With this album, there's a certain vulnerability in Karen O's voice that helps carry the quieter songs. From start to finish this is a strong album and one that the band needed to make. Their catalogue was impressive up to this point, but I feel It's Blitz! really puts them in the discussion of the best bands out there today.
