New York rockers Yeah Yeah Yeahs take a gamble on their third release, "It's Blitz," trading in their guitar-riff-heavy sound in favor of breathy synthesizers and dancefloor ready beats… And guess what?… it pays off!

The post-punkers led by maniacal beer-swilling frontwoman Karen O. have once again changed their sound without losing what their fans have come to expect from them.

Guitarist Nick Zinner's keyboard playing is as daring as his guitar work, and Drummer Brian Chase brings their sound to the dancefloor with a seemingly never-ending bag of pulsating rhythms.

Songs like "Heads Will Roll" and "Skeletons" are destined to be Yeah Yeah Yeahs classics, and show that once again the group is able to be both extremely experimental yet fun without sounding overindulgent….
