Wow, writing that headline made me feel like a broken record! As for Is Is, however, there is nothing broken about this record. As of today you can hear this latest Yeah Yeah Yeahs album in its 5-song entirety on AOL's full CD listening party. Having heard the album several times over, I strongly suggest you do so.
There's nothing drastically different about this YYY's album that we haven't heard before from them, but I'm more than fine with that. Karen O lends her strong vocals once again, and as always, delves into the dramatic. You may have heard "Down Boy" here on Buzz a few weeks ago, and that's one of the best tunes on the album, full of sultry darkness. Yet my favorite track is "Kiss Kiss" (again with the repetition!) with its pulsing energy. Check it out and tell me which one's your favorite.
