Yeah Yeah Yeahs' third album, like it's predecessors, is a solid record that sustains itself on good lyrics, catchy melodies and Karen O's vocals. Depending on your interpretation it can be or not be considered their best album.

Best track(s): Soft Shock, Zero, Heads Will Roll and Dragon Queen.

Worst track(s): none.
