    This band is still releasing more garbage? This album is just as bad if not worse than the last 2.

    Lame. A TREMENDOUS dissapointment. Right now I wish that they would have tried doing something new (not new to them... but, revolutionary). I remember a couple years back they said they were "traveling the world" trying to find a "new sound".. so I waited...... and they come out with this crap! It sounds like many things, I even heard some songs with Madonna tunes mixed in... WTF! (Not Lame. A TREMENDOUS dissapointment.

I remember a couple years back they said they were "traveling the world" trying to find a "new sound".. so I waited...... and they come out with this crap! It sounds like many things, I even heard some songs with Madonna tunes mixed in... WTF! (Not sure if they realized the were doing it..) In all honesty I don't HATE it. But it is not good; not just by YYY standards, but by any MUSIC loving person's standards. It's Blitz has no soul, no fun. For the first time in my life I am NOT going to their concert because I've seen them on youtube performing and Karen O has become a standing statue of boredom... I can't blame her, however. HOW CAN ANYONE HAVE FUN OR BEGIN TO FEEL ANYTHING WITH SUCH RUN OF THE MILL MUSIC AND HORRIBLE LYRICS!!! (With the "thank God!" exception of 2, maybe 3 songs) WHO IS POSTING REVIEWS?! NINE YEAR OLD GIRLS?!!! JUST BECAUSE IT'S YOUR FAVORITE BAND, DOESN'T MEAN IT'S GOOD. I would be rating it a 5 but since everyone thinks that these ratings are just a game and think "I was going to rate them an 8 or 7, but I want them to have a higher average rating" (RETARDS! Can't even tell the truth of their opinions) Now I rate them a 1. So that they could go down to what they deserve to be. Ughhhh... I hope that their next album is the best album they've ever made. I don't want to see a great band fall just because they want success or to "do something new". In that case DO SOMETHING GOOD! Expand

  1. Their third album offers an advance on the ecstatic dance punk of 2003 debut "Fever to Tell" and beefy rock of 2006's "Gold Lion," boldly pushing synths centre stage while sacrificing none of their vitality.
  2. Sure, it's easy to lament how fangless they sound here, with just hints of the skuzzy basement ferocity that has made Fever to Tell one of the decade's most enduring records. But the finesse they display here, on their most mature and stylistically coherent record, may ultimately serve them even better.
  3. After 10 songs, the digital version It's Blitz! is padded out with four acoustic renditions of songs on the album. But even with an acoustic guitar at the forefront and Karen O harmonizing with string sections and pianos, the songs--and, crucially, the melodies - still don't convey much.
