Definitely worth keeping,
This review is from: YOURS TO KEEP (Audio CD)
The solo album by the Strokes rythm guitar player is overall very good. I've been playing it quite a lot over the last few days and it gets better everytime.
If you like the Strokes you won't be disappointed by Albert Hammond Jr's solo effort as it recapture some of the typical sliced guitars/beat typical of the Strokes but with a light-hearted tone. Each song has a different twist to it which highlight the versatility of Albert Jr, while staying true to his style and his Strokes roots, the songs are subtle, very melodic, an awesome near mechanical, rythm section, lovely backing vocals, the occasional Wurlizer, Piano or even Banjo on Call an Ambulance.
While Albert had recruited a drummer and bass player for the album, he's had some very good support from Sean Lennon on backing vocals and playing bits and bobs on quite a few tracks as well band mate Julian Casablancas on backings on the awesome Scared.
Only 10 tracks but no filler whatsoever... a bit like any Strokes album I guess. Anyway I highly recommend the album.
