Almost half a decade ago, I was a 15 year old who thought this record was just "great". Today I realised it's things like this that make me feel alive.

My favorite album from 2009 & my second favorite YYY album behind Show Your Bones . Every song bar Dragon Queen ( which feels Fillerish) is great. Released on January 1st 2009 It’s Blitz stands the test of time some 9 years later

Best Yeah Yeah Yeahs album since the debut. More electronic textures this time, with their best set of songs for a while. Excellent record.

And it's a good melt.

YYY's best album for me. Combines the best parts of FTT and SYB- nice electronic effort that still showcases Karen O's great voice. My favourites are: runaway, heads will roll, zero and skeletons.

Not got the visceral energy that Fever To Tell had, but still superb.

Not the band's best, but this is still a way solid album. Not a bad track anywhere. Some are weaker than others, and maybe there aren't the same highs of which the group is otherwise capable, but a great album either way.

Very good album, pretty surprised to see it leave the top ten. Even if it's not as good as Fever To Tell or Show Your Bones it still shows that these guys are top notch when it comes to quality work. Zero, Soft Shock, and Hysteric are the highlights.
