The only thing they have in common sound wise is they have that same garage rock sound, Yeah Yeah Yeahs are good and fun while the Strokes are so dull even their singer sounds like he's falling asleep.

Ive just got It's Blitz!, and its really good. From what Ive heard so far it's more dance and poppish than anything else Ive ever heard from them (I only have their first album).

Shame it only lasted one EP.
yeah i was quite surprised to find out karen o was a huge teanage jesus and the jerks fan, also this may be kind of naughty but try downloading the acoustic album she made for that TOTR dude that leaked, it is called KO at home and is one of my most listened to albums on my ipod, it a great chance to hear her voice in the rawest form. Track number 7 (there are no song names) is absolutely phenomenal seriously it is my favorite song by Karen O

I totally remember thinking that, consistently great although my favorite song was 10X10, have you heard fever to tell? watch this music vid for Y control off of it, it is really awesome YouTube - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Y Control: Uncut Version, Closed Captioned

I think Show Your Bones beats both their debut and It's Blitz, though both of them, especially the latter, has its moments. I haven't got any of their EPs, aren't more of the songs there issued on the albums later?

I've got all albums and two of their EP's.

It's Blitz! is amazing, very pop/dancey compared to their older stuff. As good as It's Blitz! is, my favourite recording would have to be Isis. Love this band, hope they continue their work for years to come.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs... I've heard some pretty shaking dance remixes of their songs.

Personally I think Gold Lion was ahead of its time. I would say the majority of their fan base emerged when Maps came out. Jus sayin.....

I fail to see how gold lion was ahead of its time I mean the album is only like 3 years old
