Sound — 9
Not many bands can imitate the sound that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs produces. The sound of Nick Zinners' howling rhythmic guitar, Brian Chases' melodic drums, and Karen O's unique voice truly blend in this new album. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs keep the original sound from their Fever To Tell album, but reveals a new sound as well. Songs like Phenomena will keep you at the edge of your chair blowing your mind away, while songs like The Sweets will keep you soothed and your mind drifting. Truly, this three-person band from New York will keep you entertained throughout the whole album.

Overall Impression — 10
Compared to their earlier album, Fever To Tell, Show Your Bones is more contemporary. Even so, that does not mean it is not a good album. This is an excellent album. Most of the songs are catchy and will catch your ear. If this album were to be stolen, or lost, you would have to buy it again. That is how great this album is.
