5.0 out of 5 stars The Strokes - Band On Fire, 3 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Room On Fire (Audio CD)
Quite simply, Room On Fire is better than any other album that emergered in 2003, which itself was a great year for music. It continues on the legacy laid down by their first album, Is This It? and yet stills manages to sound original and fresh. Second single Reptilia is the stand out track and easily stands up against any of their previous material. The low-mixing of Julian Casablancas voice has grown to be one of the most recognisable voice's in modern music, and the complete sound of The Strokes is one that has been often imitated of late, but never bettered. If you don't own this album, you should! You wont make a smarter purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike the White Stripes.........., 2 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Thickfreakness (Audio CD)
Basically, this is THE album of 2003. If you dont own it, you may as well go home now because you are bordering on irrelavance. Firstly, The Black Keys are only similar to The White Stripes in that there are two of them. The comparisons stop there. The White Stripes couldn't make an album this rough and so perfectly minimal if they recorded until they were a hundred! And I am a White Stripes fan!! The second you put this album on, you will be amazed by how perfect the swampy blues and growling vocals work together. On stand out tracks Hard Row and Thickfreakness, the music hits you like nothing else I've heard this year. IT IS UTTER ROCK PERFECTION!!! Get this album now.
