The cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' debut LP, 2003's Fever to Tell, set an early-decade benchmark for sheer ugliness, a deliberately heinous splatter of webbed blood, stabbed snakes, and flaming heads. The music was also confrontational, with lead singer Karen O following in the footsteps of countless riot grrls and righteous rock queens in crafting a persona of raw defiance and sexual menace. The ninth song on Fever to Tell was "Maps", a fleeting glimpse of vulnerability on an album of gleeful scorn. On It's Blitz! that slot is occupied by "Hysteric", a song every bit as emotionally naked and immediately indelible as "Maps". Here though, it represents an island of piercing clarity and happy convention in a sea of bewilderment, impulse, and ecstasy.
Three years on from Show Your Bones, It's Blitz! sees the Yeah Yeah Yeahs getting their mojo back, albeit at the expense of any decent work rate. Rumours of a new direction turn out to be a worrying adoption of dancefloor synths, but underneath the mirrorball trappings there's still the slightly grimy post punk thrill. It's the sound of Karen O and co. growing up. Using producers Dave 'Ubiquitous, moi?' Sitek and Nick Launay means that It's Blitz retains enough of the old YYYs while acknowledging the 36 months that have passed
