- D'oh!

The first YYY's EP didn't leave my discman for weeks. The 5 songs were all so good, and cruised by so fast that I'd listen to it 2 or 3 times in a row on the subway ride to/from the city. Obviously I was very excited when I saw that the new single was out and snatched it up immediately. However, compared to the other EP this is quite a disappointment. 'Machine' is a decent song, but not as good as anything on the first EP. Also, it sounds like she's borrowing Julian Casablancas' bullhorn effect for the vocals. The other two songs aren't even really worth mentioning (I guess they are 'B' sides anyway, but still...). You just have to ask yourself if you want to spend the $ for one decent song. Or if you have the first EP and you're a completist...

That said, I'll STILL be buying the album when it finally comes out, on the strength of their live shows and the first EP (it's that good). The first Yeah Yeah Yeah's EP is a must buy, but this single is far from essential, especially if 'Machine' shows up on the album.

- Just a nice single. Ahh . . .

Three songs otherwise unavailable on whatever else is out by them (which is just the EP really). So if you like the YYYs you'll like this. Machine is cool, Graveyard is awesome, and the Pin remix is cool, but not outstanding. Too bad this isn't a bit less expensive.

- In defense

After reading the one existing customer review for "Machine" I thought that I should maybe voice my defense of the newest YYY offering.

First, anyone thinking of buying this single should know that it is nothing more than that, A SINGLE. This is not an EP, and to compare it to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' previous EP would be apples and oranges. Yes, their eponymous EP was phenomonal, and it clearly set the bar very high for what they would release next, however it would simply be unfair to compare this single with it.

As far as I am concerned, a great single should have two things. 1) A great leading song and 2) a couple of relevant if not amazing B-sides that are entertaining and fasciniting if nothing else. To me, it seems clear that "Machine" fits the first requirement. I disagree with the previous reviewer, I think that the song 'Machine' might be one of the best things the YYY's have ever written, and clearly is as good if not better than the best tracks on the EP like 'art star' and 'our Time.' Sure, the production is a little different than that of those tracks, but I think a more full production actually greatly helps their sound, and hope that when their album comes out they find a nice mix of the lofi sound of their ep and the more glossy sheen of 'Machine.'

Now, the B-sides are a slightly different matter, and why this single stays 'good' and never becomes great. There are only two, when more could probably have been included. Plus, while one is interesting if a bit of a tease at 2 minutes ('PIN', which brings in some cool electro/ambient elements), the other ('Graveyard') is pretty much a throwaway. Still, considering that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have aleady said that no songs from here or the EP will land on the album AND that this can be found for 3 or 4 bucks if you know where to look, as far as I am concerned this a great buy.

- potential

I can't say I LOVE the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, but they're better than anything I've heard in a long time. I loved Karen O's voice: part sarcastic Kathleen Hanna shriek and part Mark Arm raw sexuality. Machine has a sort of choppy melody that I really liked. I have to agree with other reviewers that Graveyard was somewhat sloppy and generic, but I have a feeling that had to do with lousy production. Pin was like painfully bad No Wave. I'll forgive that those songs missed their mark, because I like their spirit (god, I sound like an old lady). Anyway, ciao.

- Machine

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are amazing, but aside from an unexpected "Pin (Remix)", these songs are among the band's worst.
