Not their best - but there are a few gems
on 3 September 2013
This is certainly not the Strokes best album, but there are a few great tracks on here and any Strokes fan will not want to miss out.
"Machu Picchu" and "Under Cover Of Darkness" are both brilliant and get the album off to a great start.
I just don't get "You're So Right" yet (after 3 complete listens) it is just a boring repetitive drone. I don't often skip songs on an album, I like to just play the whole lot in the order it was intended to be heard - but I have skipped this one a few times.
The highlight later on is of course "Taken For A Fool". The rest of the tracks are pretty good, but overall this is is not up to the standard of "Is this it?" and "Comedown Machine".
