the strokes were my first and only concert (i know...i need to go to more concerts) but i thought they were amazing. granted, this was for their first impressions of earth tour - an album i initially hated when i first listened to it. but still, they're my favorite band, and i agree with everyone who's said that is this it is their best album overall. my favorite songs are what ever happened, under control, and someday.

Well, like Radiohead and Modest Mouse, I have yet to hear a song from the Strokes I dislike. And Fab's other band, Little Joy, is also very awesome. Not to mention Albert Hammond Jr.s solo albums...yeah, these guys rock.

Yeah, that's their best album. Nice album cover too
I read they were on a hiatus atm.
Check out Albert Hammond Jr.'s stuff, it's not too bad

When It Started is from the US version of Is This It? I think that NY City Cops was omitted from the US version because of 9/11 or something.

^ Yeah it was.

Can't figure why Hawaii wasn't put on First Impressions. Its my favourite track from that time but they only used it as a B-side for Juicebox for some reason.

How is this thread so short?!

It's the Strokes!

I'm not hugely into ALL their material, but a lot of it is just amazingly good. Sometimes they just get all instuments and vocals spot on, and there's nothing bad about the song you can point out. And they put more into each area of the song than they have to compared to most of their competitors.

and Albert and Nick's guitar tones make me salivate along with Julian's distorted vocals...especially on the first two albums

Yeah, I agree. btw this site ( http://shesfixingherhair.co.uk/ ) is amazing. Go to multimedia and you can download a bunch of really cool stuff in the audio section. You can even download concerts of theirs if you go to the video part.
