Good follow up, Louder vocals perhaps?,
This review is from: Room On Fire (Audio CD)
Well Room on Fire didn't exactly set the world alight but it is a decent enough follow up from The Strokes' first album "Is This It?". There are a few stand out tracks (mainly those that got released as singles however) and the rest of the album is of high enough quality to keep the mood going. The only thing I'd say is that the vocals seem to be at a much lower level (volume wise) on some of the tracks, almost to a point of not being able to hear them at all! The Strokes stick to their same style with this album and don't really tend to stray from their norm, if you've heard them before (any of the previous "Is This It?" album or perhaps the singles from Room on Fire) and liked those tracks then this would be a decent enough addition to your CD collection. However if you want variety and perhaps a different sound to the material you have heard before by The Strokes then this album does not have much to offer.
Overall it's a good album and worth the 4 out of 5 stars.
