The Strokes

I'm listening to Is this it and i cant believe how perfect it is! What do you think?

Sorry if there is already a Strokes thread, i searched and couldn't find one, if there is one tell me and i'll delete this thread.

I think I want to buy you a beer. When I listened to it with my friends back in high school, some were like, "It all sounds the same" and they wouldn't give the songs more of a chance.

And as far as playing guitar, I'd recommend this album to anyone who'd like to learn and play along with some easy to intermediate guitar techniques.

Everyone loves the Strokes, probably the most agreeable "indie" music before Arctic Monkeys came along.

Is this it is their best for sure.

I adore the Strokes. I'll admit First Impressions of Earth wasn't quite as good as Is This It or Room on Fire, but all their material is wonderful. However, every once and a while I do tire of them and plead all day and night for them to finish their little hiatus. Is This It is without a doubt their strongest record.

uhhhhh arctic monkeys are definitely nowhere near "agreeable". i'm definitely not the only one who thinks they are overrated NME hype trash. their not bad, but.... okay i should stop here.

on topic, the strokes are really great. i'm actually really surprised this is the first thread about them. first two albums were really good, first impressions didn't live up to the previous two albums, but it shows that they are moving on and i'm looking forward to their next album.

Is This It is definitely an awesome album... I read that they said that they wanted it to have that feeling like when you hear your favorite song on the radio, which they definitely accomplished. Someday is one of my favorite songs from that album... Room on Fire was great too, 12:51 is amazing. I was disappointed with First Impressions but oh well, even the best of bands can't be perfect all the time . cant wait for new material from them, i feel like it's been forever...

Definitely used to be one of my favorite bands.

But I saw them live and they were pretty douchey. After getting on stage really late, Casablancas says "thanks everyone, but we don't do ****in encores" at the end of the show. Got rock and roll jaded after only 2 albums.

Also, what is the deal with his vocals? I get that the radio effect thing is his style, but it's also kind of a way to cover up the fact that he can't sing.

dang that does suck. i hate when guys are douchey. i saw the hives, and the guy was extremely cocky, i think he was trying to be funny but it got out of hand when he referred to himself as a god....kinda just gets annoying
