Some more thoughts after a second listen...

The opening duo of Zero and Heads Will Roll is sick.

Skeletons gradually builds to a big, beautiful climax. Or, if you will allow me to use a term I learned in Ms. Schmidt's 3rd grade music class, a crescendo.

Dull Life rocks. There's so much going on in that song, and the main guitar riff is just great.

The highlights for me are the three slower songs near the end of the album. Runaway, and the closing one-two of Hysteric and Little Shadow. The vocals are really crisp and clear and the songs are gorgeous.

Karen O. herself gave me permission to download the leak of this album when we met today for lunch. So I haven't done anything wrong. She had the salad, Italian dressing. And an iced tea.

I can't possibly overstate how perfect her voice sounds on "Zero."

Really nice album, better than the other two maybe. But the best song is Zero by a motherfuckin' mile. That song is freakin' awesome.

Illegal downloading is immoral and wrong.

You have single handedly ruined Karen O's life, GAFfer.

I didn't realize that you felt this way.

And I can think of a few other things to do to Karen O involving a single hand.

HEY-YO!

But, seriously, I listened to their previous album Show Your Bones today and it rocked my socks. I'm in love with this band right now.

I'm not a huge fan of the band, except for Maps, Y Control, Rich, Down Boy, and I absolutely adore this:
YouTube - Turn Into (Acoustic) by The Yeah Yeah Yeahs It gets me all emotional. It's about the protagonist being dumped, right?

I actually think it's about the Israel/Palestine conflict.

The song is about whatever you want it to be about, Muldfeld.

Finally listened to the stream of 'Heads Will Roll' on Kanye's blog. It's essentially a dance track, which is pretty cool. I like.
