About this item

As Kings of Leon proved in 2005, the best tactic after releasing a critically adored debut is to blow it clean out of the water with your follow-up. With this in mind, "Show Your Bones" will achieve classic album status. Taking the fractious blueprint set down on "Fever To Tell", Brooklyn's Yeah Yeah Yeahs have tempered their brittle art-punk metre with an (almost) funky swaggering funk (the LL Cool J borrowing "Phenomena"), grandiose soundscapes ("Gold Lion") and anthemic epics ("Turn Into You"). All this and there's still room for their trademark sound which got the hipsters so rapturous in the first place.
