Rolling Stone (p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The turn towards the dance floor makes sense: Yeah Yeah Yeahs are drawing on a tradition of arty New York dance punk that extends from the Talking Heads to TV on the Radio, whose guitarist, Dave Sitek, co-produced IT'S BLITZ!"Spin (p.84) - "[T]he alternative pop album of the decade -- one that imbues the Killers' HOT FUSS and MGMT's ORACULAR SPECTACULAR with a remarkable emotional depth and finesse."Spin (p.33) - Ranked #2 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2009" -- "IT'S BLITZ! did what a third album should: push a successful formula in a thrillingly risky direction."Entertainment Weekly (p.64) - "Karen O spends much of IT'S BLITZ! delivering her yearning yowl over gently burbling keyboard chords instead of Zinner's trademark circular-saw riffs....Subbing out an instrument and switching up the tempo that way is a fairly radical change." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly (p.102) - Included in Entertainment Weekly's 'Best Albums of 2009' -- "Nick Zinner's hipster-Hendrix guitar squalls are replaced with moody-smoothy synth work."Down Beat (p.58) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he deeper you move into IT'S BLITZ! the better it gets thanks to the variety and delivery."Blender (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "IT'S BLITZ is the sound of a band reborn with new momentum, and on an album that requires dancing, the message is clear: It doesn't matter where you came from. Just keep moving."Pitchfork (Website) - "[T]he Yeah Yeah Yeahs still create great, compelling pop-rock, largely because of the way the songs themselves are organized, with conventional verse-chorus structures repeatedly eschewed in favor of detours, miniature grooves and lengthy asides..."Clash (magazine) (p.106) - "With new influences and some widescreen moments, IT'S BLITZ finds Yeah Yeah Yeahs refreshed, rejuvenated and raring to go."Record Collector (magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Opener 'Zero' sees them wholeheartedly embracing the 80s revival wave -- only, trust them to do it with a fresh rawness that's as invigorating as anything on their debut EP."Uncut (magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "IT'S BLITZ! bristles and sighs with the confidence of a group that has found a way to evolve into something glossy and commercially aerodynamic without entirely losing sight of its grimy garage-rock past."0.07319856
