5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Is This It, 7 Jan. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Room On Fire (Audio CD)
A lot has been made of this album not living up to the standard the Strokes set with Is This It, but I can't understand it. The only criticism I could make of Room On Fire is its similarity to their debut. Still, I find it a better album than its predecessor and tracks like Reptilia, 12:51 and Between Love And Hate make the hairs stand up on the back of my neck when I really listen to them.
If you liked ITI, this is a great extension of the kind of brilliantly original rock they were playing on that, but they raise the standards on some tracks. For instance, the riff in Reptilia is a simple infectious tune, but not in any way irritating or cheesy, as with so many of their imitations.
