A fantastic album! I love the noise and the energy which hits you from the moment it begins. Its kind of electric grundgy rock sound is enhanced by the lead vocals of Karen O who is amazing. Her style is charismatic; full of quirky excentric, even frantic energy. you do however get a feel for a a more mellow gentler side to her voice in the latter part of the album in Maps and Modern Romance which have a more sensative and heartfelt style. Modern Romance is particulally atmospheric. Great for anybody who likes rock music with a bit of a quirky twist. Play it full blast!
