I personnaly really disliked the song when I first heard it. Thought it wasn't the Strokes I knew and cherrished. But it slowly grew on me. The turning point was when I had the chance to listen to the whole album. Juicebox takes all its sense heard within the context of the other songs. Now I just love the song and think it is a really brave song from the band. Great songwriting, singing and playing.
But, wait, there's more : the album is even better than the single ! But for 1 or 2 songs (incl. On the other side), every single tune on it is essential. The boys have built a wall of sound that just blows your mind away. The production is superb, the songs are really diverse and always surprising. And gosh, "Ask me anything" is already the best Yesterday of 2006.
The Strokes are now flying really high, inventing the sound of tomorrow, and they've let all their influences and challengers far, far, far below. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome on board.
