Ya it’s not that great.
My thing. Best beats in music. Worst lyrics. So much cognitive dissonance.
Your breath is fucking terrible.
That’s my list too. Also Happy Ending. Man is that some kind of pop song.
When are people going to realize that the use of synths is not an imitation of 80′s music but rather an aspect of the current style of music at this moment in history?
This album sounds like a band that has once again decided to be intentional with the art they’re making. No throwaways here. God love em, the Strokes are back!
Like ize of the world brought down to a micro level.
Find a job
Find a grave?
Find a home
Find a dog
Out of town
Find a dream
Shut it down.
Rock on fellas. 2013 is suddenly looking up.

It seems like Coldplay has decided to go with the “Go big or go home” model. After listening to this I think it might be time for them to head home.
Yea only dudes with low standards listen to Nirvana. Seriously.
This is great. What a fun band.
You know, this album could never be” is this it”. No album ever will be again, just for the sheer fact that it was a moment in time that honestly had other issues in play. People often forget who the Strokes stood as the antitheses of when “is this it” hit. That’s right, five guys, tight jeans.. ring a bell? N SYNC… I’m not saying the Strokes stole any of their fans, but they stood in defiance of all a bubble gum pop phenomena that had literally swept the nation (into a state of collective nausea.) The Strokes were what we needed right then, right there. Now, we don’t need them as much, but they are just as good.
In the words of so many crazed fanboys at the release of King of Limbs, “Listen again.” Listen to Machu Pichu’s layered guitar plucks, and then layered rolling riff. Listen to how clean and concise the song writing is. Listen to Julians tortured yelps on several of the tracks. Just because their sound changes doesn’t always mean it’s for the worse. This is an album full of summer jams. This is the way The Killers Hot Fuss should have sounded. Listen again on Metabolism where Julian brings back his is this it style vocals. What I’m trying to say is this album has a lot hidden in there. it’s 630 in the morning and I have to drive 2 hours to work and 2 hours home and so I’ve gotten that chance, and thankfully for me, this has been just what I needed as Spring draws near.

Yoooouuu guys are the reason this site is dying. But, it’s ok. The Strokes don’t make music for you all. The Strokes are Beer and Cigarettes. You guys are like, I don’t know… Some really awesome drink that I don’t even know about.
But like I said, it’s cool. I’ll be enjoying this catchy, unpredictable, and dare I say cohesive album, while you all sit around sad because it didn’t take you there, when the truth is, you never really wanted to go in the first place.
