The Yeah Yeah Yeahs "It's Blitz"

This is the third album from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It is highly praised, though I suspect that those subjecting it to such praise may be suffering from cloth ear syndrom. On a first couple of listenings I found myself thinking that this was not really that good at all. More recently it has started growing on me (particularly tracks like 'Heads Will Roll') but I am still not convinced it is anything like as great as certain people were saying. Fundamentally, it does not sound like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and does not deliver what you want from a record by that band. The new electro-pop direction has its charms, but I miss the guitar-heavy sound of yore.
