I like it. If you didn't like Meds you probably won't like it. After listening to a few songs it kind of reminds me of

Just finished listening to it. Its not bad, but nothing great, outside of a few tracks I think the album will get pretty boring quickly. I'm a bit disappointed but I sort of expected it.

Favorite Tracks : Bright Lights, Kings of Medicine, Battle for the Sun

Unit nobody needs to listen to Dream theatre.

Also, you really think the new yeah, yeah, yeah's is their best? I've heard more along the lines of the opposite. Their first single is pretty weak, IMHO. It pretty much sounds to me like they've just fell in line and started making the same type of modern rock everybody else is making, which i am not fond of at all. They might as well just have become Metric.

Heres a break down of Yeah Yeah Yeahs 3 albums:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fever_to_Tell
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Show_Your_Bones
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It%27s_Blitz!

Tthe 1st and Newest are easily the best ones.
But the First album had a lot of average moments and its highlights came from previous EPs.



The new album is consistent from top to bottom.
I agree Zero doesn't work as a single, but works in the context of the album.

In the first 5 songs I wouldn't change a thing. The next 2 grow on you nicely. 'Runaway' is the weak point of the album. But then the final 3 tracks finish the album strong. 'Hysteric' is the highlight of the album.

1.    "Zero"      
2.    "Heads Will Roll"      
3.    "Soft Shock"      
4.    "Skeletons"      
5.    "Dull Life"      
6.    "Shame and Fortune"      
7.    "Runaway"      
8.    "Dragon Queen"
9.    "Hysteric"      
10.    "Little Shadow"

For my album reviews i'll stick with allmusic.com, but thanks. am I right in assuming that they have adopted a sound much more influenced by the sound of modern music today?
