I bought this on the strenght of the single and on first listen my initial thought was -so what! After the second listen i started to get the vibe and by the third I was hooked. Its one of those albums that grows on each listen and although the songs are simple the Strokes add a definitive style that is their own. As an 'oldie' Is This It' reminded me of the best bits of the New York Dolls with the added ingredient of Gene to make a mix that is pure 21st Century but with more than a glance back to 1970's punk!In a nutshell its a must buy!
This is a fantastic album. The Strokes have certainly never done better and in fact it is the best album from that era of indie. Every track is good, My only criticisms are that there is very little variation between songs so no standout songs and I don't much like the cover art.
One of my favourite albums of all time. The Strokes are a band that I never get tired of and are absolutely fail safe when it comes to setting the tone for a roadtrip, party or just chilling at home. Such an incredible album, would urge everyone to buy.
Is This It, well I would say yes it is. Released in 2001 it still sounds as fresh today as the day it was released. Worthy of a place in any music listeners collection this has become a classic album. It has the big hit Last Nite which of course most people will have heard but there simple isn't a dull moment on this album. My only complaint is its not long enough coming in at just over 30 mins. Cd was dispatched promptly and at a good price. I would use this company again.
