The Strokes: Room on Fire

Sound — 10
This is an awesome album with some great sounding riffs that stick in your head fitting with the beat and base brilliantly. Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Junior have their own unique sounds and go well together. Best songs being "12:51" and "Reptillia," although basically every song on the album is of high quality making this album a great buy.

Casablanca's voice makes it hard to tell some of the lyrics, but the lyrics that can be heard sound great against the riffs and base. His voice is unique and slightly addictive, sticking in tour head days after you've listened to it.

Overall Impression — 10
This album is a great follow up to "Is This It" and I would say is slightly better, but not by much. As well as 12:51 and Reptillia I also like "What Ever Happened" and "Under Control," with no particularly annoying songs that I can remember. If I lost this album I'd buy it again, no doubt as it is definately worth the money I paid for it.
