The best album I've heard in years, 4 May 2004
If you like edgy, pulsating, noisy, dark but melodic rock music then this album will blow your mind. It is quite simply the best and gets better the more you listen to it. There is not one duff track.
The Strokes are so creative, throwing off brilliant tunes like a spinning firework. There are more tunes in each track than most bands have in a whole album. Don't get the idea that there is anything syrupy about this album, there isn't - it's hard edged and raucous. Each track is constructed like a master at work. Edgy rhythms, beautiful bass lines and fantastic guitar solos effortlessly intertwine to engage your emotions as well as your mind. Go on - buy it. It's miles better than their first album.
