The strokes are so sick
 
Never understood the hatred of these guys or the mediocre reviews music critics give them. I loved them since they came out, and Machu Pichu and First Impressions of Earth are just as good as Room on Fire and Is This it

A damn good band! I don't feel their latest album, but it ain't that bad. Still, Mad respect for appreceating the strokes my brother. You should contribute to the indie rock thread :cheers:

if u read up on bios of strokes members you would realize they are far from "indie" rock. they had some of the deepest industry and media connections before even recording their first EP, that's why there was palpable hype about their debut album.

that being said, Is this it is a great enough album you don't even mind it's made by a bunch of over privileged private school kids.

they have an incredible loyal fanbase too, it probably helps they are one of the best looking bands around

The first record is amazing. The second one and Julian Casablancas' solo record are pretty damn good. The rest is not very good.

Good, but after 12 years you get sick of hearing the same album over and over.

Is This It is one of the very best debut albums ever...like top 2.



It's still their best work.

As far as debuts, it's up there. Some of the greats don't have great great debuts.


But the ones that I like the most are Boy (I usually don't count it tho), Mumur, Is This It, Black On Both Sides, Ten.
