I don't love this record nearly as much as "Fever to Tell" or the first Yeah Yeah Yeahs EP, but "Gold Lion" is phenomenal.
There's a bit more production on the YYYs second album, and while I wouldn't call it sophomore slump, there is a slight lack of the same rawness that made the debut so good. There's a turn towards a more commercial sound, especially on "Gold Lion", but it's still a solid album, and fans shouldn't be disappointed.
This, the second studio album from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, is without a doubt, their best. So, if you can get into some art punk or garage rock, I think you'll enjoy this 2006 release.
