"Erotic Reruns" is the fifth full length studio album by American experimental rock band Yeasayer. It was released on June 7, 2019 through the band's own label, Yeasayer Records.
At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from critics, the album received an average score of 75, based on 4 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
Fusing pristine electro-pop accessibility with subtle experimentalism, this fifth LP finds the New York trio flexing familiar style-flitting credentials and flaunting the finesse that underpins their longevity.
Testament to its addictive charm, Erotic Reruns leaves the listener yearning for an extension to the album’s near half an hour running time. Succinct three-minute songs pepper its jaunty ex tent; a blueprint that serves as a reminder that the band can alternate between brevity and lavishness with dexterity. Straddling eclectic unpredictability and hook-laden gleam, this effort sees the three-piece honing their sonic palette, as they have previously achieved with equal success in their oeuvre.
