5.0 out of 5 stars You weren't expecting it to be this good..., 1 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Phrazes for the Young (Audio CD)
What a complete surprise this album turned out to be; from the opening chords of ''Out of the Blue'' (my favourite cut on the album) to the galloping first single ''11th Dimension'', the Strokes frontman has managed to produce a non-Strokes album with some of the best of their elements intact. The expected guitar angst has been traded in for electronic elements and it sure as hell works-- that's not to say there are no guitars because they're on here but playing second fiddle to everything else instead. Excellent production and Julian's pitch perfect vocals make for an album I expect to be on the player for a big chunk of 2010. ''Ludlow St'' is the only track that sounds like a b-side or bonus track; the rest more than holds its own. An excellent debut solo offering from the man...
