their new album is out for a while, it think it's awsome exept of 15 minutes and ask me anything. But overall the album rocks, with songs like ize of the world, juicebox, vision devision and heart in a cage.

Agreed man, this album is awesome! :smt020

I've really liked all the Strokes albums so I should know by now that it takes a bit of repeated listening before a Strokes album reaps its rewards. I was worried for a while but I'm there now and totally rocking out :wink:

I don't mind 15 minutes OR ask me anything. They sounded weird as hell at first but now, now I like. I really like Fear of Sleep at the moment, when it kicks in on the last 2 minutes, love it. YOUR NO FUN, YOUR NO FUUUUUN! Listening to that song right now 8)

Ill agree with that too, I never was too hot about the strokes, I passed them off as another "garage inde" type band and when i heard Juicebox I really started to like them, I revisited there first album and really like them now. something to listen too till the killers put out another cd if It ever happens.

Ahh greetings music snobs :smt039

Just because they have some mainstream sucess, doesn't mean they are devoid any quality whatsoever. I am sure you think the all these popular new rock/indie bands are just shallow pop wannabes and for the vast majority, I would agree with ya.

But the Strokes are clearly a cut above and from what I see certainly don't milk their cash cow to the extent of most bands of this vein. To dump them in the same category as the Killers et al with a sweeping generalisation is to sell the Strokes very short tbh, makes me sad that it happens. :(

If it sounds good, then its good baby. Thats how I judge music and if you do it any other way then you just got it wrong. :P

When I was talking about the killers I wasnt putting them down, I enjoy there music. I enjoy tons of music. I mainly listen to a lot of very progressive European Metal and such, But I enjoy good music when I hear it, which seems to be far less in america.

I wasn't quoting you mana, was just a coincidence that we both mentioned the Killers, thats all. :)
