    It's a really weird diversion. Why are there so many tracks where Karen just repeats one lyric over and over? I mean she's done that sporadically throughout the albums in the past but it was usually with good effect and not done THIS much. I was a supporter when they went semi-disco, but I don't quite know what this is supposed to be.

    I like the middle section of the album, but it is definitely mediocre over all. I really have no idea what they were trying to accomplish with this album.

    I thin it's serviceable just nothing transcendent. Certainly not a slog to get through. If you were expecting a masterpiece you'd be let down but I'd question why you had that expectation in the first place.

    EPs and album 1 were masterpieces. Album 2 was amazing, album 3 was really good. So ya, I was expecting something more than mediocrity. The lyrics are repetitive, and there's just nothing interesting going on in most of the songs. And not that it matters to define an album, but the hooks are pretty bad too. After several listens there's just nothing that made me say wow that was awesome. And everything they've released prior to this has had at least several of those moments.

    Boring is the operative word for me. Nick Zinner doesn't seem to be utilizing his skill set in the ways that he's best able to and there just isn't as much there as there has been on past albums. Ironic considering how little they worked with on the EP and Fever to Tell.

    yup. the albums sucks pretty bad. and I've liked everything else up until this point. "Mosquito" is maybe the worst song I've heard in a long time.
    edit: ok.. it's the worst YYYs song I've ever heard

    My problem with Mosquito is you can hear the influences or what you think they may be trying to refer to as their influences but do a really bad job at it. For "Mosquito" I could see maybe a Suicide influence or "Sacrilege" has a Sparks influence yet they're so awful, you just wish the bands that may be referring to would been better suited to actually performing the song.

    I've really been liking it. Great lyrical themes. Being used, falling into the same routines, the fucking annoying little things in life. Like all of their records each provides its own little world of music/emotion to explore.

    I don't see how it's surprising that this album is boring. They haven't released anything worth while since Fever To Tell. They've been on a decline in the studio and on the stage since like 2005.

    The album is decent at best....and pretty horrible at its worst. And the cover sucks.

    I think the album cover sums up my view. The first time I saw it, I thought, "What the hell were they thinking?" I listened to it and hate Sacrilege. The choir is too much.

    I like a few songs in the middle just like Rage Patton said. There are a few fun moments when Nick has a chance to play, and Brian is pretty good on the drums as usual. But the songs are just flat and none have been "great." A few good, maybe like Slave, but mostly average, with a couple crap songs throughout. Really wanted to like this.

    Even if the album is so-so, they will put on a great performance. Some of the videos of their shows earlier this year look really good.

    I have to admit, no matter where their music goes, I have a soft spot for these three. When I first started going to concerts, they were my first real passion. I ended up going to 7 of their shows in one year. I was a total fanboy, and met them 4 times after shows. They always had patience for the fans, especially Nick, who 75% of the time stays around to chat with fans for a long time. Brian is like a zen monk, very cool and humble around fans, and even though Karen is shy off stage and sometimes anxious, she hangs out with fans too. It's nice for a band that's really successful and popular to still connect with fans like that.

    Yea this album is NOT good. I like Area 52 and Buried Alive, but the rest is mostly boring. I feel like every album they've done has gotten progressively worse. Oh well, still looking forward to their set next weekend!

    I think they're being tough on it, but they're also bigger YYY's fans than I. I enjoyed it enough to listen to the stream twice. It's more sedate than their past work.

    I like this album. I wouldn't call it great, but I hardly think it's a disappointment. They've certainly aged better than their peers in, say, the Strokes or Interpol, both of which I adored far more than I ever did them.

    The Strokes and Interpol are both much much better than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

    Well sure. I'll take the first two albums of each of those respective bands over anything the YYYs have put out, but let's just say that things haven't been as pretty post 2004.

    Interpol's S/T is incredible after a few listens, and the new Strokes album is their best since is this it.
