I'm just waiting to hear "In Transit" (a fantastic 'demo' instrumental of it was used in the band DVD a few years back, and it's great).

But anyways, his voice is actually pretty good. The songs are simple but good, stripped down and personal. And despite what you may have heard, it really sounds nothing like The Strokes.

Doesnt Julian sing on it? I read somewhere that he guest sang on the album. I suppose that would rather make it 'sound like Julian'

You can hear Julian at the very end of Scared, with the big chorus (it's a bit hard to pinpoint, but it's definitely him).

And I really don't see how Albert sounds anything like Julian o_O

Quote by MySpace
"Yours To Keep" was recorded at New York's Electric Ladyland Studios, LoHo Studios, and Cabin In The City with Hammond, Jr. as guitarist and vocalist together with Josh Lattanzi on bass and Matt Romano on drums.

That basic trio has been augmented on various tracks by Julian Casablancas, Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne), Ben Kweller, Sean Lennon, Chris Feinstein, Mikki James, Sammy James Jr. (The Mooney Suzuki) and Ryan Gentles.


if only i could hear songs on MySpace...

i don't think you can tell from that how big a part he plays in the strokes because at the same time he id certainly influenced by his own band's music. julian writes every song for them, he really is the center of the band without a doubt. but i shall check this out since the strokes rule.

he had that song 'obstinate' at the end of the in transit DVD which is pretty awesome. I always thought it was wierd how a lot of people seem to see Valensi as the lead guitarist. I'll definitely by the album just based on the awesomeness of Albert.

Yeah, that song was great (it was actually called In Transit and it'll be on the record). The song Everyone Gets a Star is also in that movie, during the beggining credits.

There's also an article out (I think NME?), that says some pretty interesting stuff: The songs were written over 3 years of Strokes tours, and the track listing goes in order of recording improvement (first track in Albert's friends bedroom, last in Electric Ladyland studios). He actually suggested the songs to the band, but they turned them down, such as the song In Transit (which was written especially for that). Also, a second album has already been written and recording is already underway.

The whole album can be streamed at NME.com.

A lot of people are having trouble getting the streaming to work, so be warned.

My opinion? Really ****ing good. Seriously.
