R.I.P. Roger Ebert. A Million Thumbs Up for you.
I am proud to say that I purchased this album two days ago and have come to love it. People are complaining that it sounds nothing like Is This It and their new experimental ventures aren’t very solid.
At least the band isn’t being formulaic and is trying to expand its artistic boundaries. Hell, they were influenced by Velvet Underground. They are bound to change their direction.
Give it a listen. Give it a chance. You will love it. And Julian Casablancas goes falsetto for the first time and he sounds terrific.
Kudos to The Strokes. They are the band that should matter the most at the moment.
Love me two times, I’m goin’ away.
I ain’t wastin’ no more tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmme
