New York's finest indie-punk provocateurs, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, have arrived to blow up dancefloors with their third studio album, It's Blitz! Causing destruction with shuddering synths and exploding beats, the red-hot trio deliver, with scalding confidence, the finest in rock-disco decadence.

Six years since the release of their adrenaline-pumped debut album, Fever To Tell, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs are still considered one of the freshest and most vibrant bands around. By continuously adapting their style with every release, the energetic threesome's considerable reputation has remained entirely untarnished. Whilst their debut album hit hard with an adrenaline-shot of cranked up garage-rock, their 2006 sophomore release, Show Your Bones, saw the unit stripping away some of their feisty punk attitude to create an expansive indie pop-rock sound that bred the contagious single 'Gold Lion'. Now that It's Blitz! has landed, so has a new sound for the New York trio. This time, they're kissing their tough, sexy rock with shards of synthetic disco. 'Zero' opens the album in buzzing, electro-swathed-punk fashion. Boisterous but entirely designed for the coolest of dancefloors, the track pulls back and forth in an intoxicating sea of electrical signals and Karen-O's trademark shrieks. Whilst 'Heads Will Roll' and 'Dragon Queen' keep up the party momentum, with retro dance beats and trembling synths, the Blondie-inspired 'Hysteric' contemplatively twinkles with a softer, dance-inspired swoon. The romanticism of their heart-wrenching, early-career hit 'Maps' reveals itself on many of the tracks. As 'Little Shadow' shades the disco vibes with church organ-filled grandeur, the Celtic-sounding electro-ballad 'Skeletons' tingles with sensitivity before launching into an emotional climax of martial drums and hymnal shrieks. Turning full circle from the expansive vulnerability of a love ballad through to a full blown stomp-fest, the track's arty stop-start structure plays with both sensations and emotion in the same way as the rest of the album.

The quieter tracks offer a piercing clarity that stands strong against the erratic impulse of the heavier dance numbers. Although there is a clear distinction between the two styles, the production of the album, from TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek and Nick Launay, ensures that even at their most delicate, every song still hums with a funky sense of cool. A loveletter to the dancefloor, It's Blitz! is Yeah Yeah Yeahs' most mature and stylistically coherent record to date.

Great band :) Heat added!
Awesome album, at this price worth getting.
Sweet album!
great album for those who missed it for 29p on the Amazon blooper a while ago, still worth £4.49
Surely to be in my top 5 of the year!
Did it really go for 29p? Did anyone get it for that without Amazon retracting the price?

I did :) it was when there was that download fiasco, and all those albums sold for 29p each! I got 5 albums, and one of them was this. We have a hard copy too, but the download had four bonus acoustic tracks (which are flippin' beautiful by the way!).
Nice one!
