This review is from: Angles (Audio CD)
After reading mixed reviews for "Angles" I was cautiously optimistic that The Strokes had come back with a bang and not a whimper.
As soon as the first minute of album opener "Machu Picchu" had played ,it was clear that one of my favourite bands had indeed made a triumphant return.
Whilst it may lack the impact of "Is This It" as a groundbreaking album,it makes up for this with a more polished and at times,experimental sound.
Stand out tracks are "You're So Right" and "Games" but I cannot not really find a track I don't like.This album will break in like a new pair of shoes after a few listens.
If you like "The Strokes" you will like the album and if you are new to the band it will probably make you buy the earlier albums.
I only hope the next album doesn't take so long to release.
