#970 Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Fever To Tell

I have heard of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, especially singer and pianist Karen O. She did a song I like from Where the Wild Things Are: Motion Picture Soundtrack: Original Songs by Karen O and the Kids. Their debut album Fever To Tell was mixed by Alan Moulder, who has worked with Depeche Mode, U2, The Cure and many other bands I like.

My favourite songs on the album were “Maps“, “Y Control“, “Modern Romance”, “Pin”, and to a lesser degree “Man”.

Overall, it is a really good album, but I prefer O’s softer moments than her screaming. I do not like the sound of screaming women, except maybe Courtney Love’s screams. If you like garage rock revival, art punk, and dance-punk, then you might like this album. 7/10.
