Pitchfork said: “New York band follows its debut album
‘Fever to Tell’, this decade’s gold standard for transcending
indie hype, with a record that offers only one side of the
group’s multifaceted sound.”
TUTV says: Seems like Pitchfork only listened to one side.
Trust me, this is a totally underrated LP. Love you, Karen.
I’m still waiting, impatiently, for a new album.

‘Show Your Bones’ by YEAH YEAH YEAHS
Released: 22 March 2006 – 2nd LP
NME review: “What we have here is 2006’s ‘Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ presenting themselves as a band that have cut themselves free from the fetters of a movement they helped birth and wrapped
up warm in the robe of reinvention. And what a reinvention. ‘Show Your Bones’ is resolutely autumnal. It’s gutsy, bruised, womb-warm, simultaneously tender and defiant, and just about as sprawling as you can get in under 40 minutes. Brilliant, in short.”
Score: 8/10 – Full review here
TURN UP THE VOLUME: My favorite YYYs album. Tons of passion,
intensity and heartbreak wrapped in surpassing songs. Top record!
