Reviews:

''Show Your Bones'' is the second full-length album by new New York indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It was released on March 27, 2006 (March 28, 2006 in North America) and nominated for a 2007 Grammy Award for "Best Alternative Music Album".

The album is more subdued in tone from previous records, especially the caustic noise of their self-titled debut EP. Producer Squeak E. Clean adds subtle layers of keyboards, sirens, bells, handclaps; five of the 11 songs utilize acoustic guitar, all prominently.

It was originally stated that the album was to be a concept album about the lead singer Karen O's cat entitled ''Coco Beware'', but this turned out to be untrue. The cat does exist, but belongs to a friend of Karen's.

In December 2006, the album was named the second best album of the year by ''NME'' magazine, as well as "Cheated Hearts" being voted the 10th best song. ''Rolling Stone'' magazine named it the 44th best album of 2006, while ''Spin'' magazine ranked it number 31 on their 40 best albums of 2006.

In 2009, ''Rhapsody (online music service)'' ranked it #10 on the "Alt/Indie’s Best Albums of the Decade" list.

Following its release, the album debuted at number 11 on the U.S. ''Billboard'' 200, with about 56,000 copies sold in its first week.

In an interview with ''Blender'' magazine, the band says during the writing and recording that they had almost broke up, calling that time one of their "darkest" moments. - Wikipedia
