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
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
