    Yeah I like The Strokes and I'm a parent approaching middle age.
    The lead singer reminds me of a guy I used to know ,who was also a bit of a tit.
    NYC music FTW!

    Gotta say, really liking the album. Machu Picchu kicks so much ass...despite the weird inclusion of bongos. Games is pretty lush too.

    Yer, I like. Way better than First Impressions of Earth.

    At first I was dubious, but it's grown on me. Only song I don't like is "Simple in the Moonlight".

    Gratisfication is a paticular favourite.

    Good album but not a patch on Is This It or even Room On Fire.

    Probably label influence but their whole sound has deviated too much from what got them so much initial success. I loved the rawness of their sound on the first two albums and it's what set them apart from other bands.

    I think the band admit this was a very difficult album to record and they produced it themselves that's why it sounds a bit disjointed in some places.

    Apparently they want to get a fifth one out as soon as they can, they feel they have a better album in them.

    The new sound doesn't suit Julian's vocals. Let's face it, he's a fucking awful singer, and with tighter, cleaner production, his lack of proper singing ability and voice stands out, whereas before it complemented their music perfectly.

    Just had a quick flick through there, sounds like it may actually be a return to form.

    I liked Angles though so I may not be the best judge for this thread. I think it's pretty damn good, the singles in particular.
